Amy Heikkinen | Frederick, Maryland | USA

Vietnam Volunteer Outreach | Volunteer Ambassador

Amy HeikkinenAmy Heikkinen is a licensed massage therapist, certified pediatric massage therapist (CPMT), and child-at-heart from the Washington DC area.  She is absolutely thrilled to be part of the Liddle Kidz team traveling to Vietnam!  This outreach will be Ms. Heikkinen’s first time traveling internationally.

Ms. Heikkinen is currently working with several area hospitals, including Johns Hopkins Medical Center, to build Pediatric Massage programs.  SheToddler Amy Heikkinen is also the creator of a well respected, “pay-what-you-can” massage therapy practice (for children and adults) based in Frederick, Maryland.

Amy has a special interest in helping families navigate the sometimes-tricky waters of disability or chronic illness, and specializes in Fibromyalgia and chronic pain conditions.

Her volunteer experiences have been many, and include volunteering as an LMT at Whitman Walker clinic in DC, an HIV/AIDS specific clinic that also provides a day program for people on Medicare. Much of her other volunteering experience is related either to animals or the arts, including rehabilitation and horse training at the Maryland Horse Rescue, and animal care for Washington DC Humane Society and ASPCA shelter in NYC.

Baby Amy HeikkinenAmy loves spending time with others – especially kids – and she’ll take every opportunity she can to make you laugh. When she’s not practicing as a massage therapist, or scheming new fundraising ideas for the Liddle Kidz Vietnam Outreach trip, she can be found walking her dogs, cleaning stalls and grooming horses at the barn, or singing her lungs out behind the wheel while sitting in DC traffic.

Why would you like to participate in this outreach event?

“I would be honored to work with LKF Global in order to bring one-on-one nurturing touch to these children in Vietnam. I do not have much travel experience, nor do I have a lot of hands-on experience giving massage to children, but what I DO bring to the table is that I am very good at creating connections and positive relationships with kids (and adults!). On a personal level, I believe that participating in this event will build my confidence as a pediatric MT and will broaden my idea of what is possible for me to do here at home with pediatric massage.

Last but certainly not least, as I am now participating in the creation of a pediatric massage program at the Childrens' Center at Johns Hopkins Medical Center, I am sure I will get invaluable experience and perspective that I can bring back home to the children I'll be working with on a regular basis.”
