Her skill is honed expertly and her intuition is unparalleled, but most importantly for me is Amy's commitment to bodily autonomy and how she affirms your boundaries and comfort every step of the way. As a result, massage with Pura Vida is a holistically therapeutic experience.
Amy's ability to incorporate therapeutic and energetic techniques into her massage gives you the space to truly relax. I love how she understands the mind, body and spirit connection during your massage.
As a Vietnam veteran with health issues from war-time chemical exposure, I have found little relief for pain and immobility in my joints until I started receiving massage. Amy is the best massage therapist I have found in 30 years. Her personal attention and use of variety of techniques has provided me with a new outlook and attitude. The relief has been immediate and long-lasting. I recommend her highly.
Amy is the most “in tune” therapist I’ve ever had.
Her fingers are magic, And her elbows and knees are life changing. Nothing else will do.
I didn’t know what truly restorative massage felt like until I laid my trust in the hands of Amy. I like a firm and rigorous massage and she delivers on this front if that’s what you want. The benefits of her massage last for weeks after-something I could never say about previous experiences. I can literally feel the weight of my world lifted after leaving a session!
Pura Vida offers the perfect blend of luxury services and customer care that I look for in massage therapy. The new location is beautiful and Amy really takes the time to provide bespoke treatments to serve your particular needs. While anyone can go to the big spas in the downtown hotels, I would take a trip to Pura Vida over that any day as you get the same level (if not better) service at a better price. If you are looking for massage therapy in NOLA, look no further than Pura Vida.
I have been going to Amy for Lomi Lomi massages for years. She is amazing! Consistently gives strong but relaxing massages that always leave me feeling renewed. I have recommended Amy to friends who have also loved her massages. She is simply the best!
Amy has been my go-to massage therapist for years. She moved her office to her house in Mid City in order to give her clients better service. Her service is the best in the city, and her massage studio is really ideal. She has worked on my tennis elbow, by rotator cuff, and my stress. I usually get so relaxed that I fall asleep on her table. I have been with her for years, and my wife loves her service, too. The studio in her back yard is wonderful. She keeps it very clean, and it is completely relaxing. She is really pleasant to be with, and we always love our visits.
