Amanda joins All Bodies and brings unique training from a diverse background from working as an occupational therapist and certified lymphedema therapist. She is originally from Louisville, KY where she earned a Masters in OT in 2010 and transferred to Ocala Florida in 2014. She transitioned careers to work more specifically with manual therapist and bodywork by continuing her education with the prestigious Florida School of Massage completing the program in 2021.

She completed certification as a lymphedema therapist with the Academy of Lymphatic Studied, ACOLS, 135 CEUs in 2010 and has worked specifically with patients who are s/p cancer procedures, history of DVTs, chronic cellulitis and venous insufficiency. 

She has advanced training in IASTM (instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization) and supports the science for releasing restricted fascia and reducing scar adhesions. IASTM is a technique that evolved from Gua Sha, a Chinese method, however it is used with various angles combined with specific strokes using different applications to increase mobility. It is beneficial for a variety of conditions but not limited to back pain, plantar fascitis, rotator cuff tendinitis, ligament strains, carpal tunnel, tennis and golfer's elbow. 

Amanda is passionate about providing a custom-tailer massage specific to an individual's needs and preferences to best promote healing and relaxation.

She believes deeply that providing an opportunity for individuals to develop an awareness to oneself can result in connecting the body, mind and spirit allowing an opportunity to encourage a moment of healing.

Amanda's educational, medical and professional background was very apparent ! Her attentiveness addressing areas of back and neck discomfort, was also very evident throughout the entire session!! Thank You! Doug

I loved that Amanda asked questions and wanted me to tell comfortable with everything she had to offer. I am glad that she did, because not many people ask when it comes to things like this. My overall experience was amazing and I highly recommend going here for a massage.

Amanda explained everything perfectly so I knew what to expect. She made the atmosphere comfy, and then she undid years of stress bound up in my back. It was awesome.
