Amber Smith

I'm not just a massage therapist, I am a facilitator of healing.

Becoming a massage therapist was a calling not a first choice for a career.  After my service in the Army I was looking into a career as an interior decorator, however God had a different plan.  At a church service a friend of mine (and massage therapist) came over and asked if she could work on my shoulder and neck.  She noticed that I was all "crinked" up from holding my infant.  In that moment I new that becoming a therapist was my calling and the next day I researched local massage progra...

Becoming a massage therapist was a calling not a first choice for a career.  After my service in the Army I was looking into a career as an interior decorator, however God had a different plan.  At a church service a friend of mine (and massage therapist) came over and asked if she could work on my shoulder and neck.  She noticed that I was all "crinked" up from holding my infant.  In that moment I new that becoming a therapist was my calling and the next day I researched local massage programs.


My journey as a therapist has been a windy road and in my opinion I feel that it has made me a better therapist; I'll start at the beginning.

I knew that I wanted to start my own business and I had an independent contractor agreement with the chiropractor that I interned with as soon as I graduated.  Two months after graduation and getting a running start on my business a box truck cut off my husband and I while on his motorcycle.  We were blessed to not be killed, my left hand was crushed, my molars were crushed and I sustained a TBI that I live with to this day along with daily chronic pain.

Understanding what it's like living with pain and ways to relieve pain and live a healthier life has helped me to ask the questions of clients to understand what they are going through and what I can do to help them, through not just my training but my experiences as well.  I continue to learn new modalities to add to my knowledge and I am planning and in the hopes for the future to build and open my own wellness center.

I have been going to Carpe Diem Therapeutic Massage for several years. Amber is very professional and provides a very thorough massage. Highly recommended.

Amber is very intuitive. Not every massage is exactly the same. She adjusts her focus each time to the areas that need more attention. I also appreciate feedback after the massage (stretches, movement exercises) that will improve my overall well being.
