Some of us find our true calling late in life. At 45, Amy realized that decades of blood, sweat, and tears in an academic field were not feeding her soul. After earning a PhD in Business Administration, and over 10 years experience teaching university-level classes, she realized that her true calling was to help and share knowledge of pain relief, not the construction of financial statements. She is a California state Certified Massage Therapist (CMT), certified with the NCBTMB both as a therapist, and as a provider of continuing education.
Her specialties were carefully chosen to address multi-dimensional pain relief for her clients: body, mind, emotions and spirit. Manual therapies include: Sports massage, myofascial release (using the principles of Tom Myers and Anatomy Trains), trigger point release, kinesio taping (CKTP), and pediatric massage (CPMT, CIMT with specialties in autism and cancer). As an Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki and Holy Fire II KarunaTM Reiki Master, Amy is recognized internationally as a powerful Reiki healer. She provides client sessions/training in the following modalities: Usui/Holy Fire Reiki, Crystal Reiki, Reiki Sound Healing, Reiki Drumming, and Self-Healing techniques.
She rounds out her exploration of pain relief techniques as a shamanic practitioner, specializing in: power animal retrieval, extraction, soul retrieval and psychopomp (transitioning the dead or dying). Each client, each student is given the space to heal and progress in the most productive way, with the techniques that are best suited for their life path at that time.
