AMBER DEFAZIO has been interested in healing and bodywork since childhood. Her passion grew while studying to get her associate degree in Occupational Science at New York College of Health Professions. This 2600-hour program opened the door to a vast array of modalities for her to include in her massage practice. The extensive knowledge of kinesiology, myology, and pathology taught in the program gave Amber an exceptional understanding of the human body and the tools to treat each patient in the most unique, productive, and healing way. As part of the healing process, Amber integrates European (Swedish), Amma (Oriental), Sports, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Myofascial Release, Reiki, Prenatal, Reflexology, and Hot Stone therapies to treat everything from stress and sore muscles to chronic pain and energetic imbalances. She incorporates nervous system energy work that gently helps turn off the outside world and encourages prolonged states of rest and restore. When she is not taking the time to heal others, her passions include family, nutrition, yoga, art, music, dance, and almost everything outdoors.
