Amanda discovered the world of massage therapy through attempting to heal her own physical dysfunctions after she was personally diagnosed with a mild case of scoliosis. She discovered profound relief in mindful bodywork such as chiropractic care and yin yoga. She became highly motivated to expand her knowledge of professional massage after witnessing several loved ones undergo elaborate surgical procedures, yet still suffer with pain and dysfunction of soft tissue to the muscular system.
Amanda received her license in massage therapy after graduating from Chattanooga State in 2012. The in-depth curriculum provided training in a painless deep tissue technique, which taught her to approach massage from a medical perspective. Since then, Amanda has continued her training in neuro-muscular therapy, various energy work modalities and unique sports massage techniques.
In 2016 Amanda became a Certified Reiki Master after studying with her mentor for many years. She believes receiving her Reiki attunements helps bring a calming and healing presence into any treatment she encounters, whether it’s an athlete, the elderly or a prenatal massage.
