About Amy - Amy's background and training

Practicing full-time as a deep-tissue Massage Therapist for 17 years, I have learned a great deal about the affect of life on the human body.  Working with chiropractors in rehabilitation environments has shown me the necessity of maintenance programs to promote prolonged physical well being.

CranioSacral Therapy is a balancing addition to my well rounded body of work. CranioSacral Therapy works with the pulse of the Cerebrospinal Fluid found within the Craniosacral System. This system maintains the physiological environment in which your brain and nervous system develop, live and function. Working from the base understanding of the body as a self-correcting mechanism, this modality holds space for the enhancement of your physical structure's own ability to heal.

I look forward to further studies into modalities that offer relief from constrictions in the body which hinder the fullness of life.

"Amy is an excellent massage therapist. I am a volleyball player and recently hired Amy to work on my ailing shoulder. I played in a tournament the following weekend and had significantly more power and endurance. My fiancee gets massages from Amy for stress relief and relaxation. I cannot think of anything that she enjoys more!"
