My Approach To Treatment

Amy partners with people to optimize function, performance and wellbeing through work with the physical body.

She values and engages each person’s whole, unique being and experience, and the conscious and sub-conscious effects on posture, tension and function.

When there is disruption from stressful input sometimes our bodies fail to adapt well. As a result, we may experience symptoms such as pain, swelling, difficulty moving efficiently, headaches, digestion issues and more.

Through a full body assessment, Amy looks for the root causes of problems and uses hands on therapy to engage body tissues, structures and systems from the tip of the head to the toe, working towards all moving together in health. This includes working with tiny particle sensory receptors all over our body that pick-up information about what we experience and feel. They initiate messages that travel to our brain and affect how our brain makes our body, including our muscles, function. Sometimes our sensory receptors need to be re-set to be more relaxed and efficient.

Mission & Goals

Getting on the same page for goals and potential:

Many people when they first see me don’t know what is possible for us to do and what I’m skilled with to effect. We will talk at the beginning of the first session about what I do.

Identifying the starting point:

There are a few ways that we identify a starting point and when I do help us note it and priorities I do this keeping in mind both priorities of what helps our posture and movement be efficient and what that’s been revved up and guarded by our life experience can be freed to give us new potential.
