I am very passionate about massage, bodywork, and holistic subtle energy therapy. I have always been interested in helping the body achieve wellness through natural means, which led me to begin massage school in 1996.
I graduated from Health Enrichment Center in 1997 with my first-year massage therapist diploma. This was when I began Intuitive Touch. I was interested in learning more and so I pursued my education with Health Enrichment Center. I continued with school for a total of five years, graduating with a Masterbodyworker diploma. I also taught for Health Enrichment Center, first interning, and later as an instructor. In 2014, I completed my education with a bachelor's degree from Siena Heights University with a major in massage therapy. I am currently an Alpha Sigma Lambda member of Siena Heights.
Since 1999, I have been facilitating bodywork / subtle energy therapy workshops privately and publically. I also organize workshops at Intuitive Touch.
I have worked with different types of clients with a wide array of needs. I love to work with deep tissue / trigger point therapy, relaxation / stress reduction services or subtle energy therapies. I do my best to listen and adapt what I do in order to facilitate the body to heal itself. I love my job, business, and mostly my clients. I learn something from everyone, and this helps me develop and grow as a human being and as a massage therapist.
Hi, my name is Cheri Ames. Several years ago, I suffered a serious back injury. I visited doctors, chiropractors, and surgeons, but nothing helped. Finally, I found myself with a massage therapist. By then, I chose to treat my injury naturally. The massage therapist educated me about the connection between my body and mind and the effects of natural treatments. My health, back, and general well-being greatly improved.
After my injury healed, I attended the Flint School of Therapeutic Massage. I graduated in 2004 and immediately began to work in this field. I had worked in several different environments and alongside many chiropractors. I am skilled in Swedish / relaxation massage, and very skilled in deep tissue massage, pain management, trigger point therapy, and treatment of certain injuries.
I’ve worked extensively with people before and after their surgeries, and those with scar tissue restrictions, joint replacements, after stroke paralysis, temporomandibular joint issues, and muscular imbalances. I have also worked with geriatrics, athletes, and those who just want to unwind and relax.
Doing therapeutic massage has been the most gratifying work I have known. I love helping people feel better. It's very important to me that my clients are relaxed and comfortable throughout the session. As an experienced therapist, I am committed to helping my client achieve positive results. I enjoy my work and hope to meet new friends along the way.
My training as a Massage Therapist took place at the Health Enrichment Center in Lapeer, Michigan.
What inspired me to pursue the path of massage therapy was seeing first hand the overwhelmingly positive effects that massage has on pain management and well-being for patients in health-care and hospice settings. Working as a CNA for more than 10 years, it has always been in my heart to help and care for others.
For me, personally, the value of massage therapy is immeasurable. In 2011, I was involved in a serious auto accident resulting in challenging injuries. Even after great medical care and extensive physical therapy, I was still taking pain medication daily just to get through the day. It was massage therapy that enabled me to break free from medication use. I was amazed at how much regular massage work helps with not only pain management, but with stress management as well.
I have learned that our bodies are naturally designed to heal themselves - and massage is an excellent facilitator in that healing process! I absolutely love the work I do, because it is wonderful for me to see that it really, really helps people feel better. My goal as a massage therapist is to meet you where you are at in your healing journey. Each session will be customized for what is best for you at that time.
