She began the early part of her career working alongside chiropractors and physical therapists, who guided her focus towards pain management and rehabilitation for acute and chronic pain, post-surgery, and sports injuries. Amy's love of the work has propelled her to seek ways to integrate wellness as a form of maintenance and preventative care.

Sessions are aimed at reducing inflammation and pain, while promoting balance and relaxation.
