Hello My name is Amber Holt
I am the owner of North Shore Massage & Bodywork. I am a therapeutic, medically, and clinically educated Massage Therapist who has been working in the field for 8 years. I have been licensed in the state of Tennessee for 7 years now. As your therapist, I will work hard to find the best massage to help fix your bodily aches and pains caused by daily stress, work stress, athletic activity, and past injuries. My philosophy of health involves a holistic approach where we all are on a journey in life and have the ability to make choices that can mend and strengthen, or slowly destroy our whole health. Massage is one of those mending and strengthening choices that is just one piece of the holistic "whole" .
Day after day we deal with so many aches and pains that we tell ourselves are just "natural". Massage is a wonderful, natural way to help get rid of those aches and pains that shatter our "wholeness" and it helps us get back to being more "whole".
As I promise to help you with your holistic journey, I also encourages you to work hard, and make other healthy choices. Choices such as healthy diet, exercise, acupuncture, colon hydrotherapy, and regular chiropractic care are also important parts of the holistic "whole".
What can I expect? When you come for your very first massage, I will have you fill out a form that tells a bit of information about you and your health history. After going over what your expectations are, I may perform some muscle assessments and range of motion tests to help me better perform the therapeutic massage. I will then leave the room while you undress to your level of comfort and get underneath the cozy blankets. From here, it is your job to listen to the calming music and relax! I will knock on the door and wait for your response to enter. I will always respect your modesty and only uncover each area of body as I work on it. You may want to talk, otherwise you can remain silent and relaxed. When the session is over, I will ask you how you feel and then leave the room to give you plenty of time to re-dress. Remember to drink plenty of water before and after your massage.
Types of massages:
Amber offers a personalized, unique massage to each client, each visit. It is called the "toolbox" massage
Here are the tools in her toolbox:
Trigger point therapy
Neuro Muscular Therapy (NMT)
Active Release Therapy (ART)
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)
Facilitated Stretching and Range of Motion
Swedish massage techniques
What does the therapist recommend?
The toolbox massage! It means that through the years I have learned and mastered many different techniques and modalities. I put all of these skills in what I like to call my "toolbox" and each time I assess an area of the body, I go into my "toolbox" and pull out the right "tool" that will help me to work on that area, loosen the musculature, or help alleviate the pain.
What if I just want a sample?
Then come for a consultation! It's just $30 and if you decide to schedule a full session, that cost gets applied towards your first visit! Time is precious and I take pride in really spending time listening to each massage patient of mine & their unique needs and medical considerations!
