Amber has had a passion for alternative wellness practices since a young age, and has always known she was meant to be some sort of healer. After pursing a pre-medicine program she quickly became burnt out, and so she began her massage career when she attended the Omaha School of Massage and Healthcare in 2011. Massage seemed to be where she most felt at home, and her passion for bodywork and healing has given her a deep sense of purpose and fulfillment in life. It is her belief that massage cultivates an awareness of a person’s mind-body connection, and that our bodies hold an intuitive understanding of how to move through the world. She’s worked in healing arts centers, spas, and has managed her own private practice previously. Amber specializes in a Deep Tissue/Swedish massage fusion that is catered to each client, as well as Thai massage, intraoral massage, prenatal massage, cupping, Reiki, and guided mediation.
