Amanda Starr LMT, CNMT, EM/MT, RVT is a graduate of ASHA's School of Massage Therapy and Mike Scott's School of Equine Massage/Muscle Therapy. Amanda is certified in Equine massage, Equine Craniosacral Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, Sports massage, and Swedish massage. Over the last five years, Amanda has built a very successful Equine Massage practice in Tennessee and Georgia.
Before deciding to pursue her love of massage therapy, Amanda was a licensed veterinary technician for over 12 years. During this time Amanda was lucky enough to work with some of the best small animal and equine veterinarians on the east coast. It was during this time that Amanda developed a deep appreciation of the need for total wellness, and a desire to help others be the healthiest they can be.....two-legged or four!
In her spare time Amanda spends time with her own horse, Saving Grace, and trains and shows in the sport of Dressage. She also shares her house with four cats and a Meyers Parrot. Never a dull moment!
