OR Lic #16138
Hours: 2nd-4th Sundays of every month By Appointment only
Amy has been a practicing licensed massage therapist for 3 years. She received her massage training from East West College of Healing Arts in Portland and her degree in Health Sciences from Portland State University. She is also trained and has experience in the following: Teaching Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, exercise for senior adults, Culinary Herbalism, Thai Massage, Ayurvedic Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Prenatal Massage, a variety of spa treatments, and has just achieved the title of Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor from Kerala Ayurveda.
"Although I appreciate the vast wisdom I've gained from working in spa environments, I truly enjoy and prefer having my own practice as it allows for more intimate, individualized treatment sessions. My goal is to treat every individual for his/her own unique constitution and present state of being. Combining my experience of working with a variety of ages and physical conditions with my knowledge of physiology, movement, touch, aromatherapy, and Ayurveda, I strive to create a personalized treatment for each client's needs. In a typical session, one may expect the use of any combination of oils, essential oils, heat, hot stones, stretches, and/or muscle release techniques. Following the massage, I enjoy giving a recommendation of yoga asanas to practice at home, chosen based on the client's individual structural imbalances. "-Amy O.
