Massage Philosophy & Modalities

For Amanda, massage is a passion, a science, an art, a favorite form of human interaction, and a vital ingredient for mind-body health.


With each treatment Amanda generally integrates elements of deep tissue, Swedish, sports, myofascial, CranioSacral, and neuromuscular (Western trigger point). She specializes in “deep tissue flow”: an individually tailored, structurally based massage that addresses specific issues while maintaining an energetic exchange and a balanced feel. Other specialties include headaches/TMJ issues, sciatica/hip pain, and pre/post athletic event.


Amanda uses high quality, all-natural massage products. A complimentary steam towel plus dry towel are provided at the conclusion of each session.
