AMBER’S PERSONAL BIO:
I’ve lived in Santa Rosa my whole life and have no intentions of leaving. I figured out pretty early on that massage was my calling and what I was born to do. When I was about 14 or 15 years old, I received my first massage and was hooked. (Unfortunately I had to wait until I was in massage school before I received my next one.) In 2002, at the age of 21, I graduated from Western Institute of Science and Health with 640 hours of training, and have been massaging ever since. In the last 15 years I’ve worked in may different environments ranging from; a noisy hair salon to a large health club, from a small day spa to a mid-size boutique hotel. Finally, this year, I decided it was time to start working for myself. I love getting my hands on a client and feeling the healing change I can help them achieve. My preferred style of work is firm, deep pressure with stretching. Of course I can have a lighter touch as well. I like to say, the secret to a great massage is open communication. Don’t ever be afraid to speak up if you want more attention somewhere or are uncomfortable with anything. Outside of work, you’ll find me busy with my family and friends. With two growing boys, there is never a dull moment in my house. My husband and I enjoy getting our group of friends together for BBQ’s and game nights, concerts or fun adventures and camping trips. I love going to concerts and experiencing music live. My taste in music is pretty diverse. In my car you’ll find me cruising with Country or blasting some Heavy Metal. At home, I’ll be singing along to my ’90’s favorites or some good ol’ Rock and Roll.
After only one session with Amber, I could finally fully rotate my neck, and lay down without it feeling like I was laying on tennis balls. No other massage has done that for me. I realize now that there is a big difference between a standard massage and body therapy. It has improved every physical activity I do.
Amber has the instincts of a true healer. Through her skill, knowledge, experience, and care, she has helped me through a lot over the last 15 years. She has taught me where I stuff all my emotions and frustrations in my body, how to release tension and pain, and how to get out of my head and back into my body and the world. I’m pretty sure she’s magic.
