Amy graduated from MacEwan’s 2200-hour program in 2019! She uses a variety of techniques in her sessions including Swedish massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, cupping, sports massage, and lymphatic drainage.
Amy’s passion for massage therapy stems from surgeries she underwent as a teenager. After her surgeries, she decided to take a more holistic approach to her recovery which included massage therapy and acupuncture. This experience showed her how powerful holistic modalities can be and right away she knew she wanted to give back using the same type of care that had helped her immensely. She is currently a second-year student in the Acupuncture program at MacEwan University. She plans to continue her education to better equip herself as a therapist and to provide the best quality of care she can.
In January of 2019, she began a case study on the Effects of Massage Therapy on Multiple Sclerosis. Nearly 2 years later, in December of 2020, she published a paper on this same case study in the International Journal of Therapeutic Bodywork and Massage. In her study, she focused on the patient’s fatigue level, mobility, and edema in the ankle affected by MS. The results suggested that massage therapy is effective in treating fatigue, mobility, and edema in those with MS. This study brought to light her passion for helping those that need treatment the most.
