Amy lives with her family in the nearby Village of Canning. She is an avid writer and educator, having authored several articles, which have been published in local newsletters for the clinic. She enjoys studying psychology, sociology, anatomy, and other relatable subjects. Her favorite subject, and most relevant to her writing and practice, is Pythagoras’ teachings of “immortality”, or the theory he is famous for, the balance of portions.
She has formal training as a Personal Care Worker, working in long-term and in-home care facilities . A humanitarian to the core, her empathic soul found the fast paced and impersonal nature of the field, overwhelming. She decided to take a hiatus, focusing on raising her family.
In 2018, she graduated with her massage therapy diploma from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Halifax, Nova Scotia. But don’t let that date fool you. Even though she is new-ish to the profession, she has found herself drawn to the biopsychosocial theory (biology, sociology and psychology) with each, individual case. At the center, or core of it all, is the cognitive brain, which responds to stimuli, most commonly “pain”.
Amy's focus and goals are to assess, treat and educate on breathing, posture and movement, combining the biopsychosocial model and her theory of the involvement of the autonomic nervous system and it's connection with the neuron-rich (fascia) tissue.
She has a unique gift, although sometimes it can feel like a curse, called Synesthesia. She explains she can "see" with her hands to connect to the spine and tap into the nervous system, where she explains the story begins. Her unusual capacity to sense energies and communicate with the tissue, has earned her the title of “the soft tissue whisperer”.
Amy works with individuals suffering from Breathing or Postural related issues, PTSD and other trauma related injuries including head injuries (whiplash, concussions), MVA’s, surgeries (cancer, amputations, heart, hysterectomy (pre and post) and scar tissue. Anxiety and depression disorders, ADHD, ASD; in children and adults. She also specializes in numerous neurological conditions.
You can find Amy at the clinic or providing mobile services at long-term care facilities or traveling to do home visits.
