"I gave a hand massage to calm on of our residents who has Alzheimer’s disease who roams. I caught her as she was winding up to 'sundown'. She sat down and let me 'practice for a class I took'. In ten minutes, she was asleep with her head on my shoulder. No medication was needed that night to calm her down. It was so cool!"
Amy opened her massage practice, Art of Massage & Wellness, in 2004. What began as a one-room massage studio focusing primarily on therapeutic-grade services, grew in 2005 when Art of Massage & Wellness ran for 5 years as a small day spa in Waupaca's King area. As our economy changed, Amy closed the day spa portion of her business and returned practicing as a one-room studio, where she was able to continue in her therapeutic practice while receiving advanced training in palliative care focused touch techniques and specialized communication skills for those suffering with Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia. Now, Art of Massage & Wellness continues to thrive serving those in their vibrant years with therapeutic table massage while Amy continues to serve her community as a leader and educator within the Massage and Eldercare industry.You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or give her a call 715-513-0999
