Meet Amy L. Van Antwerp
Amy L. Van Antwerp, BCTMB, CCST is a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist and Craniosacral practitioner who does more than ìrubî on muscles. She focuses on specific muscle work to alleviate real causes of muscular pain and tension. She is passionate about getting your body back working for you by listening to your needs and taking inventory of your injuries and pain in order to treat the whole body picture.
ìItís not always about the really deep tissue massage, but more about precision and technique,î she explains often.
Amy has over twelve years of experience as a massage therapist. In her sessions you will find a blend of all her knowledge applied to your particular needs, including Trigger Point Therapy, Neuromuscular, Myofascial Release, Neurokinetic Therapy and Craniosacral Therapy. She likes to walk the line of relaxation meets rehabilitation. Her goal is to relieve your stress and discomfort, and release you back into the world as a thriving human being.
Amy has a long history of being involved in dance and has learned much about bodily care through her own training, maintenance, and recovery from injury.
Amy started reading books on Reflexology, Trigger Point Therapy, and Acupressure when she was sixteen years old. Her mom had brought home a book on Reflexology, and she was quickly fascinated that specific applied pressure to points on the body could stimulate the bodyís self-healing mechanisms. In our fast-paced, technologically focused society, Amy values what can be accomplished through the ancient healing art form of touch, using skilled hands for a range of beneficial results.
Amy also holds a B.S. in Professional Writing and Pre-Med. She lives with her two spoiled sister cats, Onyx and Pewter. On occasion, they have to be reminded that they were rescued from the side of the road and now lead a life of privilege.
