"It is necessary that one learn to release tension in order to improve the circulation of Ki (life energy) and obtain a balance in basic bodily processes. Balance in our physical body is contingent on a balance between the mind and the body. Suppleness of the body indicates a flexible posture physically and mentally." - Shizuto Masunaga

Amy Jo joined Vital Living in August, 2016. She lived in Austin, Texas for 12 years prior to moving back to Fort Wayne and in Bermuda and Hawaii before that. She joined the Navy at 18 and between Virginia Beach and Atlanta she served for 7 years.

Her interest in Massage Therapy began at The Rolf Institute in Boulder, Colorado in 2008 where she learned Myofascial Release and Structural Integration. She has since expanded her Myofascial Release (MFR) training with John F. Barnes, the renowned expert of MFR.  Amy Jo graduated from A New Beginning School of Massage in 2012 in Austin, Texas.  It was there that she discovered another love – Shiatsu (Japanese Bodywork) and Thai Massage (Thailand Bodywork) which together incorporate a traditional combination of acupressure, energy meridian work and yoga-like stretching for an invigorating albeit relaxing and balancing experience. (Thai-Shiatsu is done on a mat on the floor with the client wearing loose comfortable clothing.)  Her Myofascial Release (MFR), Thai-Shiatsu Massage and Deep Tissue Therapy work wonders in helping relieve symptoms of neuropathy, PTSD, migraines, hip dysfunction, low back pain, etc… and are ideal for those wanting to relieve pain and reconnect their body and mind.

Amy Jo loves using her treatment skills with tri-athletes, runners, walkers, cyclists, and fitness enthusiasts. She finds her skill set especially beneficial for dancers, yogis and musicians, as well as, people in general who are looking for the medical benefits of Therapeutic Massage. 

Amy Jo has been entranced with dance from a young age and has had a special love affair with belly dancing for the past 17 years. She was the President of the Austin Bellydance Association for 3 years.  An event that is dear to her heart is the Camparet Bellydance Camp in Texas which she returns to yearly to work with 50 belly dancers.  Amy Jo also enjoys yoga, photography, bonsai, gardening and cooking. We can tell you she’s also an excellent writer.
