Amanda Joy and Fibromyalgia Massage

I started working with people who have pain over 20 years ago. I worked for the NHS in North Yorkshire.  Many of the patients I looked after had difficulties with pain and fatigue. 

I cared for people who were paralysed from the neck down, had lost limbs or had neurological conditions.  Many of my patients experienced neurological pain, pain that is not well understood.  As most of my patients were paralysed, there were no connections through their spinal cords to enable pain signals to be transmitted.  Other people had no physical symptoms or conditions to explain the multiple painful symptoms that they were reporting. 

My patients reported feeling a variety of types of pain everything from burning and stabbing sensations to pins and needles and numbness, all over their bodies and effecting multiple body systems. This led me to look at integrative or alternative medicine for answers. 

In 1998 did a course in NLP.  NLP means Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro refers to your neurology, linguistic refers to language, and programming refers to how your neural language functions. In other words, learning NLP is like learning the language of your mind.

The techniques I learned were amazingly effective at reducing pain and so simple. I went on to study psychology, hypnosis, anatomy and physiology and many modalities of massage. I went on to study Clinical Hypnotherapy, mindfulness and EFT, (emotional freedom technique) to add to my toolbox and have found the combination of tailored massage, hypnotherapy and pain management techniques to have a powerful effect. 

Anyone who knows me knows I love continuing professional development and last year I became a Rapid Pain Elimination Therapist.  A therapy which is being brought into the NHS along with mainstream pain management therapy. 

Clients report feeling deeply relaxed, having reduced pain, and stiffness.  They say that they have more energy, feel more positive and motivated, that their digestive systems work better, they are sleeping more and that the quality of their sleep is better.

As conditions like Fibromyalgia and ME effect the body and mind, I treat the body and teach you techniques to reduce or remove pain using your mind. 

Over the years I have worked with a variety of clients who have daily challenges with fatigue and low energy, stress and anxiety, pain, IBS and multiple other invisible symptoms. 

These conditions are very unique in how they affect each individual so the therapy and the solutions I offer are also unique and tailored to your specific needs.

I always begin with a free initial health and wellbeing consultation and find out all about you getting as fuller picture as possible. Then I put together a treatment plan using a variety of tools and techniques from my toolbox.  

A package of therapy may consist of Massage, EFT, NLP, pain management, STEPS, Rapid Pain Elimination, Hypnosis and Mindfulness.  We'll work together to empower you to overcome your challenges and move forward in your life.
