Amy Burtis LMT

 A passion and hobby of mine is hiking in the woods and along the lakeshores of Michigan.  I am fascinated by both the dramatic and subtle changes in weather patterns, the feeling of the fresh air and the ever changing light and shadows.  It is always familiar but never the same as the day before.  I find the changing conditions exciting and inspiring.

Similar changes can also be found in our bodies.  Stress, injuries, habits and lifestyle can have a dramatic or subtle effect on each of us.  As a licensed Massage Therapist and graduate of the Kalamazoo Center for the Healing Arts, I apply myknowledge and experience in Reflexology, Swedish massage,Acupressure, Myofascial release and Cranial Sacral therapy to provide a massage experience tailored to each client’s personal needs and wellness goals.   



 - Chiropractor


I chose to dedicate my life to helping others through chiropractic care many years ago. Suffering from chronic back pain that had started when I was a teenager, it was my experience with a chiropractor in my early 20s that made me realize life without pain was possible.

pain would be my constant companion.

It was the chance meeting of Dr. Brian that set me on the path that has led me to a wonderful and flourishing career where I have the privilege of helping people change their lives and witnessing miraculous recoveries in so many people who had given up hope.  I thank God every day for that meeting, and the honor of serving people just like you.
