This Board Certified Massage Therapist personally understands the first wealth is health.


After a cancer diagnosis in 2008 left her reeling - physically, mentally & emotionally, Amy left a successful career as a CPA to work diligently on regaining her health. She spent the next several years mastering the professional bodywork skills required to share her experience by helping others through massage, yoga & bodywork.

Understanding the need for private wellness services, Amy created the Iaomai Center in 2012 in her native Knoxville, Tennessee and led a multidisciplinary professional therapist team dedicated to providing the highest level of services for personal healing and wellbeing. In 2015 she accepted an invitation to join the world renowned Wellhouse team at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee. There she personally provided private yoga, meditation and massage services to some of the world’s most sophisticated and discriminating guests.

With a new opportunity for professional growth in 2018, Amy sailed east to Oriental, the sailing capital of North Carolina, where she led the spa start-up, development and launch for Natural Elements Spa & Wellness at River Dunes, a master planned community on the Intracoastal Waterway.

With the advent of Blackberry Mountain in 2019 (and after personally experiencing two hurricanes in less than two years), Amy decided it was right to return to her mountain roots at Nest. - the highly lauded spa at Blackberry Mountain.

Amy is happily married to her very best friend, enjoys every opportunity to sail (Hinterhoeller Nonsuch) and spending quality time with her fur family. You can reach Amy at amytankbmtn@gmail.com

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Robin on Sep 01
One of the best massages I have had. Amy definitely read my profile and knew I had a lower back issue. I did ask she focus on just my back, and she did. Amy located the actual location that was bothering me. Felt wonderful after the appointment and will definitely enjoy another appointment.

Liked the space, the sign on the front door, the power of Amy's hands/arms, the oil burst to start, the warm moist towels especially on the feet. The excellent foot work. Her overall knowledge in such a short history of Body work. The overall business model

Loved the entire experience. Amy is incredibly welcoming and made me feel right at home in the studio. The one-hour massage was perfect and exactly what I needed for shoulder and lower-back pain. Felt amazing and worth every penny. Highly recommend her! Definitely going back once I return to Oriental! :)

Amy gives the most relaxing massage. Every detail for your comfort so made for your comfort.

Amy is by far the best therapist I have ever used. She can "read" my trouble spots (of which there are many) and provide the perfect balance between a more therapeutic massage and a more stress-reducing massage. We're very lucky to have her in our area.

Very quaint and peaceful.

The entire experience was wonderful. Have had spa vacations at Little Dix Bay in Tortolla and Grand Wailea in Maui and this massage was equally enjoyed. Only minutes away treat yourself and head to Oriental NC
