Amy whole heartedly believes that, for the vast majority of us, we ultimately have
the power to take control over our own health, through the simple choices we
make on a daily basis; regarding our food, activity/exercise, stress management,
and social connections. Our current health status is a reflection of the
accumulation of our daily habits over our lifetime, which have either lead us
towards good health, or away from it. Simple daily healthy choices, done
consistently over time, can be very powerful on ones health status. The power of
choice is ultimately your own.
Amy enjoys working with a wide range of clients, from infants to seniors, and
believes at any age we can live healthy to be well. The power to heal lies within
all of us.
