Amber Nolan, Owner
Registered Massage Therapist Novice Acupressure/Meridian Massage
Amber Nolan has been a Registered Massage Therapist for over 13 years. She graduated from the Professional Institute of Massage Therapy in 1999 and has been practicing full time since 2004. She personally understands the very delicate nature of TMJ pain/discomfort which led her to receive Intra-Oral training in Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD) in 2012.
Amber’s interests, in the last 4 years, have been in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) after she finished a First Level Acupuncture course in 2013. She has been compelled towards working with the Meridian pathways and how they affect one’s inner harmony and now offers an Acupressure/Meridian Massage treatment option. Amber is continuing to expand her knowledge of the Meridians with online training through The Big Tree School of Natural Healing. Once she has completed her current training she plans on heading to Florida for in person studies.
Amber also has a personal passion for restorative Yin Yoga which includes these same traditional Meridian pathways within its poses. She further supports her clientele by showing them these stretches, and has a connection of referral to a neighboring yoga studio.
