Since 1993, Heather helps people as an ambassador of health!

Heather practices Rolfing in Oak Park, Illinois.  When you work with Heather, you will explore how your body operates, how limitations can be addressed, and how freedom can be created through flexibility, breath, and motion.  Dr. Corwin served for years as the Head of Movement Training at Northern Illinois University in the area of Theatre.

Heather began practicing bodywork in 1993 and is currently a Registered Movement Educator with International Somatic Movement Educators and Teachers Association. Additionally, she holds the distinction of being an Associated Bodywork and Massage Professional member and is a member of the American Psychological Association.  She earned her certification in Rolfing from the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute (formerly the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration) in 2005 after having experienced personal transformation and relief as a result of the Rolfing 10 series. 

To expand her understanding of how the body and mind are one, Heather earned her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with a Somatic Concentration from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in L.A.  She is a licensed professional counselor with Blackbird Behavioral Health located by the Oak Park library's main branch. Her research looks at the relationship between the arts and emotional intelligence, stress management, and psychological wellness.  This is a very fancy way of saying that Heather is interested in the complexities of being human and how our bodies respond to life.  If you or someone you know is interested in body-based (somatic) counseling, please go to



For decades, Dr. Heather's been a Rolfer® and an ambassador for health, working with the vast vulnerabilities of the human body, complicated by the complexities of the human mind.
