Amy has been a licensed Massage Therapist since 2003 and is trained in Ashiatsu, Deep tissue, Hot stone, Pre-natal, Swedish, and Thai massage. She received her massage training at Mueller College of Holistic Massage Therapies, in sunny San Diego, studied Thai Yoga massage at Lotus Palm, in Montreal, and has taken numerous courses throughout Texas. She also holds a BFA in Ballet and Modern Dance, is a certified Yoga instructor, and Herbalist, all of which help her to understand the working human body, and it’s needs.
Amy believes that massage is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. Massage not only relaxes the muscles, but eases the mind, and helps to create a sense of well-being. What we put into our bodies radiates to the outside, and how we care for our external self radiates inward.
Amy gained a passion for the healing arts at a very young age. Amy’s grandfather was an Osteopathic doctor and she watched as he cured everything from his clumsy granddaughter’s sprained ankles to a world-renowned Soprano’s laryngitis, all using just his hands. She knew that she wanted to emulate that “magic touch” he possessed. That, coupled with her passion for dance, led her to massage. She loves the idea of helping people heal themselves, and massage lets her “dance” around the table, doing just that.
