Client & Colleague Testimonials

NUTRITION THERAPY


I DECIDED TO WORK WITH AMY BECAUSE I HAD TRIED OTHER THINGS. I CAME TO THE CONCLUSION I NEEDED A FOOD EXPERT. THAT IS WHAT I GOT WITH AMY; SOMEONE WHO KNOWS HOW THE BODY METABOLIZES FOOD AND WHO KNOWS HOW TO WORK WITH PEOPLE WITHOUT REDUCING EITHER THE PLEASURE THEY GET FROM EATING OR THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF THE FOOD THEY EAT. SHE DID THIS WITHOUT ASKING ME TO MAKE HUGE CHANGES IN WHAT OR HOW I EAT.

I DON'T GET MASSAGES VERY OFTEN, AND AS A RESULT, TEND TO HAVE HIGH EXPECTATIONS WHEN I DO!  I LOOK FOR SOMEONE WHO CAN MAKE ME FEEL PAMPERED AND RELAXED WHILE ALSO ADDRESSING PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS LIKE JOINT REALIGNMENT AND MUSCLE TIGHTNESS.  AMY IS EXCELLENT AT ATTENDING TO THE SPECIFIC NEEDS OF HER CLIENTS AND IS ABLE TO PROVIDE TREATMENT THAT IS BOTH INDIVIDUALIZED AND SKILLED.  I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER TO SOMEONE WHO GETS MASSAGES EVERY WEEK OR ONCE A YEAR!"
