Massage + Bodywork

I wanted to do a little introduction/reintroduction to my practice for those that are new to working with me or are interested in starting.
My name is Amy. I use she/her or they/them pronouns. Sessions with me are held at Wellness Minneapolis where I have been practicing for quite awhile now. I started off my journey as a therapist by studying shiatsu and massage at Centerpoint Massage and Shiatsu School & Clinic in St Louis Park.
Since graduating, I've enjoyed expanding my bodywork knowledge and toolbox by doing various trainings in Chi Nei Tsang, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and Myofascial Release. I love learning about different bodywork modalities and their philosophies and techniques. Practicing multiple modalities is a bonus for my clients because it allows me to cherry pick techniques from a variety of sources and address your concerns from multiple angles. I'm happy to explore different modalities and/or blend them until we find a form that works for you. You can check out the Services page on my website to learn more about the modalities that I practice.
I appreciate working with clients that have a variety of goals for their session. Sessions with me tend to address your goals from a physical and energetic standpoint. Lately, I've been enjoying weaving more Craniosacral work into my sessions specifically for neck, shoulder, back and hip pain, TMJ disorder and headaches. I'm looking forward to doing some more training in Craniosacral therapy in the fall. I also enjoy learning about herbalism and local plant medicine, painting, spending time with my partner and dog, walking, camping and generally being outside.
Amy Daws is a trained Therapeutic Massage, Shiatsu, Chi Nei Tsang and Craniosacral therapist. She is a nerd at heart and loves sharing what she is learning about with her clients.
