Amanda, Massage Therapist
Amanda went to Gwinnett college (formerly the medical arts school) in Raleigh NC. She’s been practicing for 10 years and my favorite style of massage is relaxing Swedish/trigger point combo. Which she believes is very effective!! The best self-care advice she could give would be stretching and cold compress to muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. Inflammation causes many issues that can be prevented with ice therapy!!
