In an earlier newsletter, we welcomed Amber Young to our Carp Ridge Natural Health Clinic team ~ she’ll be accepting clients starting in March 2011.
Amber completed her training of 3000 hours as a Registered Massage Therapist in 2004 at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Victoria, BC. She brings a diverse range of techniques and clinical experience to her practice, gained through her work in treating a variety of conditions. She has continued her education in an area she is very passionate about — cancer care and massage.
In addition to her private practice, Amber has experience providing massage and Reiki with organizations such as the Victoria Hospice, the BC Cancer Agency, Sunrise Assisted Seniors Living, and the Wellspring Cancer Support Centre in Toronto. She is also on the board of advisors for the Victoria Cancer Resource Centre. Her experience working in palliative care and with chronic illness has allowed her to understand the deep impact and importance touch can have in the healing of an individual.
Amber has worked quite closely with many women providing prenatal massage. She enjoys facilitating women’s relaxation groups, combining different techniques to empower individuals to become more active in their own stress management and self care. She also works to educate women on breast health and breast massage.
Amber has a profound interest in the link between the body, mind, and emotion. She is presently furthering her education by completing her Bachelor of Health Sciences, as well as deepening her training in Cranialsacral Therapy.
Amber takes a holistic approach to your health combining the science and art of therapeutic massage, supporting the bodies’ natural ability to heal itself. She is excited to work with you on your path to wellness.
