The Focus of My Treatment
Amber’s practice focus is on the treatment and assessment of musculoskeletal and other soft tissue injuries and dysfunction. She strongly believe in the body’s ability to heal itself and that massage therapy is one of the many paths to restoring health and wellness to the body. She is a huge proponent of patient education, which makes her general focus during treatment on movement pattern modification, postural re-education, stress relief and general wellness. While utilizing neuromuscular, joint mobilization, muscle energy, and Swedish massage techniques, she creates a patient-focused treatment plan that is supported by assessment as well as patient feedback. Amber is a strong supporter of self-care and patient education-helping you take charge of your own health. She is a huge believer in doing what you love for a living so that you never really work a day in your life. “I have found my passion in massage therapy and like to think that my enthusiasm for it shows! Massage Therapy is an amazing profession that I am proud to be a part of!”
