yogaQUEST welcomes Amy Van Antwerp to our community!!

Amy does corrective and structural bodywork.  

This goes beyond the medical or sports massage.  Her techniques have roots in osteopathic principles.  She uses a blend of therapies and the governing principles of anatomy and tensegrity to resolve the core issue to your current symptoms be it from an old sport injury, repetitive strain, habituated posture, a car accident or tailbone fall.  

She has studied Advanced Bodywork at the Ankrum Institute, as well as other studies on the west coast in Biodynamic Craniosacral and Visceral Manipulation.  Her early career began with traditional and sports massage as well as myofascial release and trigger point therapy.  During the last seven years, Amy’s work has progressed to advanced soft tissue manipulation techniques that help a variety of conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, TMJ, plantar fasciitis and chronic pain.  Her background is one of pre-med, which involved much chemistry, physics, anatomy, physiology, and biology, as well as writing and dance performance. 

During the dancing years, she needed to recover and get back on stage, so she learned about the body through her own recovery methods and yoga studies, which she now incorporates into her therapy.  Her absolute joy is seeing the surprised look on clients’ faces as they feel good in their own bodies once again.  Amy also works on babies and children, and if you have a nice pet, she is known to help out animals from time to time.

One hour  $125: Craniosacral-adults (over the age of 8):  Craniosacral therapy uses gentle touch manipulation of your head, neck, and the bottom of your spine.
