South Austin Massage Therapy
Improving your health and wellness since 1997

About The Practitioner

My name is Amber Hicks, Licensed Massage Therapist since 1997.  I am from Austin originally, but I have also lived in Houston, Dallas, Amarillo, Kerrville, Wichita Falls and Colorado.  My father was a Chiropractor in Houston when I was growing up and my first job was as a Chiropractic Assistant in his office.  I enjoyed helping the patients and the patients liked how attentive I was to their needs on an individual basis.  I have been massaging shoulders since I was a child.  As a child, I would annually give my step-mother gift certificates on Mother's Day to "The Relaxing Place" where I promised foot treatments, shoulder massages and head massages.  I was actually naturally good at massage.  I also played the piano almost my entire life and was professionally trained in voice in high school and went on to win awards with my choir in Region and State Competitions as well as Solo and Ensemble UIL competitions. My greatest joy in life comes from spending time with my husband and two daughters, whom I adore.  We enjoy hiking, exploring, swimming and being silly.  

I have been trained in many modalities of massage including:

Advanced Neuromuscular Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Accupressure, Reflexology, Swedish Relaxation, Aromatherapy, Reiki 1, Medical Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Pre and Post Natal Massage, Infant Massage, Massage for those with Autism Spectrum Disorders, and Manual Lymphatic Drainage.
