AWARENESS MASSAGE
my private practice
location, hours & scheduling

When you gave me my first massage after breaking my back, I wasn’t even touch friendly. Your massage helps me to stay strong and flexible so I can take care of myself and I no longer keep a cane around as backup plan. Massage has allowed me to enjoy spooning with my partner. I no longer hold my back so protectively and I can hug my friends again. I think I am stronger than I was ten years ago.”  ~~ JH ~~


WHERE IS MY OFFICE?

Awareness Massage is located on Capitol Hill one block south of the TV towers (located on 18th and East Madison), and also one block south of Trader Joes.

1527 18th Ave
Seattle, WA 98122
(206) 323-5871

ARE THERE STEPS?

Awareness Massage is located in my Victorian home. Seven steps lead to the front door.

I see clients on either the first or second floor, depending on scheduling.

WHAT ABOUT PARKING?

Parking is available behind the house. Go through the alley between 17th and 18th. Find my house - the only 100 year old Victorian home sandwiched between contemporary town houses - and park on the south side of the garage, blocking in my car. You'll see a sign reading "parking for the guests of Barbara Helynn Heard."

After you park, walk back around the garage and through the gate on the north side of the garage. Then walk to the front of the house. There are six doorbells. Mine is marked "Heard".

DO I MAKE OUT PATIENT CALLS?

Very occasionally I will provide massage in a client's home. I do this for my regular clients who become unable to get around by car or bus.  

I will travel up to half a mile from my office to provide massage to new clients who use a wheelchair and/or are unable to navigate the steps at my office.   


WHAT ARE MY HOURS?

I’m flexible. Many of my appointments are weekday day time spots but I also have openings some evenings and weekends.

My earliest appointments begin at 8 am, and the latest run until 10 pm.


HOW CAN I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

Alternately, you may phone me at (206) 325-3479.    I check my phone messages about once a day.  I don't text.
