I have been seeing Amanda for some time now and cannot speak highly enough about the work she does. She is very knowledgeable and experienced in what she does and I saw a marked improvement after one session with her. I highly recommend her to anyone with neck, shoulder, or back pain.

Amanda is a godsend. Amanda is a sweet spirit and her soothing energy puts me at ease immediately. When in a session her attention is 130% focused on the problem and how to solve it. I went into my first session feeling tense, with chronic pain from sciatica and muscle cramps and spasms. I left the treatment room feeling like a brand new person. It was a transformational experience. I highly recommend Amanda to anyone who is suffering from chronic pain.

Amanda is a lifesaver! I went to see her after suffering years of pain, restriction, and discomfort. I have always had tight hips and hamstrings due to years of running long distances, which led to several injuries.

She listened patiently and asked comprehensive follow-up questions during my initial consultation. For the first time, I felt like someone cared and was paying attention to what ailed me. This was my first experience with myofascial release and I have to admit that I was a little nervous, but Amanda did such a great job of making me comfortable by explaining everything to me and did such a great job during the massage that I fell asleep! After my first visit, i felt flexibility come back to parts of body that I had essentially written off and felt the tension that i had been so used to carrying in all my muscles begin to dissipate. I also began sleeping soundly through the night and waking up rested, which hadn't happened in years. The benefits kept on coming in the days and weeks following that appointment.

Amanda tailors each subsequent appointment to address the progress and changes that your body is making to make sure that you get the most benefit out of the treatment. It is obvious that she truly cares about her patients and that she is gifted at what she does.

I can say that I have range of motion, flexibility, strength, and balance back in parts of my body that I thought were "goners" for sure. I credit her with eliminating my pain and changing the quality of my life. My appointments with Amanda are something I very much look forward to!!!

Amanda is one of the best massage therapists I have ever had work on me. She is extremely conscientious, knowledgeable and professional. She keeps records of your progress and always reviews your status before a session. In addition, she is a kind person. I would highly recommend her for this service.

What an amazing experience! What an amazing massage therapist!

Amanda is the best massage therapist I have seen (and I have tried quite a few!).
I have been seeing Amanda since early 2007. Initially for back injury pain due to an automobile accident when conventional methods brought no relief. Not only has she resolved the back pain but she has helped me with so much more. Being an athlete for 40+ years I find it harder and harder to keep major aches and pains at bay so last year I began a wellness plan for myself. Massage, yoga, acupuncture, walking, running, softball and swimming currently encompass my agenda. I recently completed my first 5k and I could not have successfully accomplished this without Amanda.

Amanda is a caring listener, a trainer, a healer and a teacher with exceptional techniques in deep tissue and myofacial release massages. I love her use of reflexology during each massage and I absolutely love her hot stone sessions. I would recommend her hot stone for everyone! Amanda gives 100% of herself every moment during the massage and tailors each session to meet my immediate needs and also my future goals. Her massages initiate such a flow of positive energy throughout, connecting my mind and body together for an incredible wellness experience.

Amanda truly has a gift and I am so thankful to have found her. She will always be a main ingredient within my health and wellness plan.

Amanda has helped me tremendously by addressing a point in my lower back that
makes me flinch and fall to my knees from pain. She uses a gentle pressure
technique which eventually reaches the affected muscle and does not let go until
all the pressure is released. She starts working on the back without any oil so
she can really feel the different areas. She then uses oil to reach in deeper.
She works with a lot of patience and has really made a big difference in my
life. My sleep has improved and the pain has substantially reduced.

For many years, the occasional massage was an act of indulgence for me. When the muscles in my shoulders would feel tight enough to suspend a bridge, I would allow myself some relief with a massage, and it was always a deep tissue massage. The immediate gratification of having someone dig their fingers into those unrelenting muscle fibers "hurt so good." However, I found that the relief lasted only as long as the massage, and oftentimes my body would feel worse the following day, as if my muscles had been punished.

By chance and luck I came across Amanda Donis?? information from a mothers website recommending her for pregnancy massage ?? at the time I had been suffering from severe lower back pain for about 6 months from moving country and just too much heavy lifting. I had given up hope of fixing it as I had seen many general masseurs who would claim to be able to help but ultimately provided no relief. After 2 sessions of deep tissue massage with Amanda I could not believe the difference. I could actually bend down to pick things up without wincing. I opted to have a 3 rd session to follow through and I have not had to return as that particular back pain is now totally healed despite getting pregnant afterwards and having all the extra weight. I felt like she had literally worked a miracle as I had given up hope! Further to this Amanda treated my mother who is a breast cancer survivor and had had a mastectomy. Since then she suffered arm and back pain around where they removed some muscle. She had two treatments with Amanda while she was visiting and felt a noticeable difference after a year of suffering. I cannot speak more highly of her in our cases.

My husband introduced me to Amanda, and explained that she utilized a different method called myofascial release. I was dubious, but my first massage with Amanda was a birthday gift, so why refuse it. My first impression of the technique was almost disappointing because it was so unfamiliar. There was none of the "hurt so good" immediate gratification, but a more relaxed, deliberate stretching of the fascia that allowed my tense muscles space to release themselves. I found that my body was much more limber and relaxed for days following the massage, a result I had never had with deep tissue.

A monthly massage is now part of my regimen. Amanda is a great listener and clearly devoted to her art and her clients. Indulge yourself!

I went to see Amanda because of chronic pain in my neck, shoulder, and wrists due to my job as a computer programmer. She has helped me greatly with these issues. She is very knowledgeable about reducing repetitive strain. My regular visits with her help me immensely. She is highly recommended!

When I first went to see Amanda, I was in an extreme state of inflammation and pain in my neck due to a car accident injury. Amanda applied a technique whereby she was able to greatly lessen the severe muscle spasms I was having and increase the range of motion in my neck. Over the past six months, Amanda recommended me to a physical therapist from whom I have been receiving treatment in conjunction with Amanda's sessions. By using myofascial release and the knowledge of how to apply and not apply pressure, Amanda has successfully freed me from a debilitating state of muscle inflammation.
