Amy became a licensed therapist in Michigan after completing the Medical Massage Therapy program at Blue Heron Academy in Grand Rapids, and has been licensed in New York since 2019. She is also a Certified Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapist, with additional education pertaining to cosmetic and plastic surgery, allowing her to effectively reduce pain and swelling in clients post-surgery and/or injury.
Using techniques from modalities such as Swedish massage, deep tissue, Craniosacral, positional release (SMRT), and others she tailors each client’s massage to their specific needs. Working as a teacher for several years, having extremely knowledgeable instructors from massage school, continuing education instructors, and fellow therapists have all played important roles in how Amy approaches her work and relationships with her clients. Asking questions, sharing experiences, and continuing to learn new skills helps her to grow as a therapist.
I fell and broke my ankle, requiring surgery. After surgery I completed months of physical therapy but still experience swelling and fluid in my ankle. Amy suggested lymphatic drainage therapy. What a game changer! Every time I see her, she is able to dramatically decrease the swelling and fluid in my ankle along with decreasing pain and increasing mobility. This has been a huge help in my continuing recovery. ~Gillian H.
