Featured Take 5 Bodywork Therapist: Amy Mattison, CMT

Amy Mattison, CMT
          "Rudy was skeptical whether or not I could help him.  A gift certificate and the fear that he might need a hip replacement initially brought him to me. He had been having pain for many years due to a football accident back in high school. After our first session Rudy experienced immediate relief.  Each week I would listen to the needs of his body and develop a treatment plan utilizing my unique blend of gentle touch techniques.  Each time he would leave feeling great and continue to see improvement.  Soon we had restored the natural balance within his musculoskeletal and nervous systems. He now lives without that constant nagging discomfort.  In the 10 years since my first session with Rudy, happily he has not needed a hip replacement and is more active now than he was when we first started working together."
Amy recently returns to Santa Barbara, leaving behind a 14-year bodywork practice in Maryland.  Her unique and integrative bodywork style includes extensive training in Donna Eden Energy Medicine, Craniosacral Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage, Gentle Myofascial Release, Visceral Manipulation, and other modalities.  Her customized blending and gentle application of these techniques help the client regain proper digestive health; resolve headaches, neck and back pain; balance chakras (energy centers within the body); clear emotional trauma; and relieve stress, anxiety, and fatigue.  In addition, she excels at providing relief for those with mysterious or difficult-to-treat conditions. Try her 60-minute Energetic Tune-Up for fast and effective results!
