Experience the Elements of Massage

I practice a highly effective combination of energy work and Neuromuscular and Thai massage, and I incorporate handmade essential oil blends into each massage treatment. 

I used to suffer from chronic neck and shoulder pain and headaches, and seeking solutions for that problem led me to a career in massage therapy. By the time I graduated from Drury University with a Bachelor's of Science in Literature and an excellent job as a technical writer in 2006, I knew that I wouldn't be satisfied prof...

Amber is very personable. The appointment was very friendly without losing the profesional atmosphere. I didn't realize how badly I needed to be loosened up. She did such a good job, I almost didn't mind rush hour trafic going home! I will be back.

Studio location is away from the din of traffic, both mechanical and human. I was having issues with tightness in neck and shoulder areas due to driving and spending too much time at the computer. Amber was able to work out the kinks I had managed to create. I plan to return!

Amber is different than any other LMT I've ever seen. Her goal is not to give you a fluffy massage that makes you fall asleep driving home, rather to concentrate on your trouble spots and work on them with a goal to make them leave your body forever, not just 30 minutes after you leave. Her 'office' is very private and comfortable, with a sort of boho style. You will feel instantly relaxed. Amber's personality is perfect for a LMT, she is friendly & social, but does not talk constantly where you don't get to enjoy your massage. She is easy to communicate with and listens to your needs. She has obviously studied her craft and brings a unique approach towards healing the body. I have been to many, many LMT's and I would highly recommend Amber. She tops my list for a great healing massage!

Amber did a fantastic job with my resume and cover letter. She quickly and competently took my sad old outdated resume and turned it into a sharp, professional, eye catching document. I would highly recommend collaborating with Amber if you are ready to invest in yourself and your future. I've had great results!

Amber gave me plenty of insight as to how things are working below the skin and it was easy to communicate (both ways) about what seemed to be going on. I think over time that'll make me a better caretaker for my mortal coil.

In addition to the physical benefits of the massage, I thought Amber did a great job identifying and targeting habitual problem areas, and educating me about ways to address them further even after the massage. It was a great experience that will help me manage my chronic pain better in the future. I highly recommend giving Amber a try!
