Only you know how your body feels. Only you can do something about it.

I am a body detective. I find your pain, and usually, the source.

Having worked on people now for over 17 years professionally, I have come to appreciate the body's memory of how to heal, how to feel (then heal), and how to allow their senses to adjust to a stimulus. And it's
uncanny how I can read a body in its levels of pain and stress. It's as if there's a red light flashing where someone's pain is and my hand goes right there, usually within seconds of approaching a client's body.

I am a body detective. I find your pain, and usually, the source.

Having worked on people now for over 17 years professionally, I have come to appreciate the body's memory of how to heal, how to feel (then heal), and how to allow their senses to adjust to a stimulus. And it's
uncanny how I can read a body in its levels of pain and stress. It's as if there's a red light flashing where someone's pain is and my hand goes right there, usually within seconds of approaching a client's body.

I am a neuromuscular therapist, which means I find places within the soft tissues where the nerve or other tissues are trapped. Scar tissue, postural and habitual muscular tension and stress all contribute to these areas of pain. While I do my best to work within your tolerance, I always encourage the client to breathe and relax into the work being done, and to quickly inform me when pain is sensed.

I am also a practicing Reiki Master which simply enhances the effects of my skillful fingers, forearms, and elbows. With so long in the field, I have studied many modalities. I think of my work as Fusion Massage. I interview each client to see what they want in the massage and do my best to bring that to the table. I help my clients along the way with my observations, education and postural advice. Many long term clients have been seeing me for over 7 years.

My type of therapy can and should be comfortable. When there's discomfort, there's a signal that something is not right in that area of the body. 

Will massage work for someone? ...or some condition? ... will it hurt? Well, what I always say is, you don't know until you try. 

The older the injury or pain, the more likely a client would benefit from a cumulative effect that therapeutic massage provides. Sometimes people stop getting massage when it stops hurting, but those who understand the underlying reason they feel better soon make massage part of their lifestyle. Most doctors will support the idea of massage therapy and may even prescribe it. We can save you the tax on the services if you do have a script.

See for yourself the difference massage therapy can make for your body, mind and soul.

Amy's massage technique definitely helps me with some issues I am currently having due to recent injury and also overall body "aches and pains". She knows just where/how to work in order to make the improvements.
