Amelia Stickney, LMT
Amelia grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She began dancing at a young age, which inspired her to learn more about the body and our experience inside it. This led her to the 1000 hour Dual Polarity/Massage Program at the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts in 2008 and she became an NM state Licensed Massage Therapist in 2009.
Her studies at NMAHA included courses in: Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology of Injury and Disease, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, Core Integration, Energetic Nutrition, Polarity Stretching Postures, Cranial Sacral as well as Therapeutic and Swedish Massage.
She continued to learn about the body not only through massage and polarity but also through movement, becoming a certified GYROKINESIS® and GYROTONIC® Trainer. By combining this and her dance training with her knowledge of anatomy, she was able to focus on how habits of movement affect the structure of the body.
She excels at providing treatments for: chronic postural issues, neck pain, fibromyalgia, sciatica, low back pain, anxiety and a variety of other chronic and acute issues.
Amelia works with the body as a whole through integrative, nurturing and attentive touch to encourage the health and balance of the entire system.
