Hey guys! Allow me to introduce myself....I'm Amber!
I began my career in massage because I wanted to create a work environment that focused on feeling well. You know, like feeling healthy and energized and stress free. (Rather than waking up in the morning, dragging my feet into a work atmosphere where coworkers bragged about how poorly they ate, how little sleep they got, how awful they felt, etc.) So I made it happen.
For me, massage therapy is how I help clients find their mind to body connection. As a believer in the connection of emotional, physical and mental pain, my methods assist you to acknowledge your discomfort in order to release it. I love how the body acclimates, and shows us how it's compensating. Every time I meet with a client, I have a silent conversation with their muscles. The more you visit, the more you will benefit.
Massage therapy is an excellent compliment to physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, as well as Eastern and Western medicine. It's not, however, a one and done cure for pain. This is something to consider when looking for pain relief treatments. Multiple visits, often in a series that tapers as the client progresses, will produce the best outcome. The therapist's effectiveness will increase the more chances he or she has to familiarize with how your muscles respond to treatments.
My experience and training include sports injuries, accidents, trauma, long term illnesses, competitive athletes, corporate athletes, and those with active lifestyles.
I know what chronic pain feels like. I've learned that understanding the source of pain and how the body works anatomically can be quite profound. Using mindfulness, we can be so much more aware of our specific muscles and how we use (or overuse) them. With my inquisitive approach and effective communication skills, I'll help you find your composure and feel more like you.
