A Licensed Massage Therapist since 1996 and Licensed Esthetician since 2008, Amy's passion in life is helping others heal. Just as pain comes in many different forms, so does healing. From decreasing stress by inducing relaxation to alleviating physical, emotional, or mental pain stored in the body to simply feeling connected through physical touch, the healing therapies she provides target one if not all of these human conditions. Her original inclination to help others was in pursuit of a nursing degree; however, over her time in that program, she was drawn towards a more holistic, less technical role in healing. She literally wanted more hands-on time with those she was helping. She approaches each therapeutic session by customizing a treatment to best suit your needs. She now also offer holistic energetic healing through modern day shamanic reiki practices in addition to the hands-on work she's known and loved for so long. This energetic healing helps alleviate blockages that balance the energetic body centers (a.k.a. chakras), which begins the journey to deep inner healing and a greater sense of overall well-being. Her reiki services are provided virtually (please reach out via SkylineReiki@gmail.com) and/or on location at Repose Spa Studio.
