The easiest way is to use the "titlesec" package and the command 
"titlespacing". For example,


\titlespacing*{\section}         %% heading command
               {0pt}              %% increase left margin
 	      {\baselineskip}    %% vertical space before heading
               {2\baselineskip}   %% vertical space after heading

Please see the documentation of the package for details.
