Amy Cagle – Massage Therapist & Holistic Health Practitioner
What is Holistic Health? Many people think Holistic Health is strictly about using alternative medicine, but in reality it’s about caring for the whole person. This is done by not only focusing on one’s physical health, but their emotional, mental, and spiritual health, too. It’s rooted in the belief that all four of these aspects affect your overall health; feeling “off” in one area can affect the others.
I studied both Western and Eastern massage modalities in order to bring my clients the best of both worlds. My 1,000 hours massage therapy and holistic health education, along with taking essential oil and aromatherapy courses, have provided me the ability to tailor care for my clients.
Whole health is so important to me. When one area of your life is out of sorts, other areas tend to stop functioning properly, too. You might feel unbalanced or overwhelmed. Together, we will release the junk weighing you down to allow amazing opportunities for personal growth. Massage therapy can help not only release what’s going on in the physical body, but what is going on mentally and emotionally, too.
Part of my personal holistic approach includes incorporating essential oils into my daily health and wellness routine. I’ve been using EO’s since 2015 and they have truly increased my ability to be psychically, emotionally, and mentally strong. Because my family has a lot of success incorporating them into our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing, I want to provide my clients with the same option. EO’s are easily incorporated into massage therapy and can greatly enhance your massage experience. *Essential oils during massage are optional.
I only use doTERRA brand essential oils because I know they are pure, safe, and effective. The company’s practices are honest and fair. The oils are grown in areas where they are best suited and the growers and harvesters are given quick and fair wages. By cutting out the middle man, they are able to ensure the quality of the oils. They also support not only the communities they harvest from, but charities all over the world. For more information on ‘Why doTERRA?’ click here.
I was born a dreamer and a learner. I loved school, but I also loved to be in my own world. I am an observer of people. I like getting to know different people and learning what makes them who they are. I enjoy discovering their talents and strengths. I have always been someone who makes friends easily and enjoys serving and working with others.
After getting married at 19 I quickly had 4 beautiful children. I supported a husband through his military career, government career, and schooling, working from home when needed. When my youngest started school, I enthusiastically went back to get my degree. A month into my college career, my husband of 16-years suddenly left and I found myself a single mom. Despite having to get a full-time job, I did not quit school! I got on average 4-5 hours of sleep a night, but it was worth it. I knew I needed to accomplish what I started.
During my schooling I got remarried and was able to quit working and focus on family and school. It took me a total of 7 years to get my Bachelor’s degree in Marriage and Family Studies through BYU-Idaho. My plan was to pursue life-coaching, but I had an inclination that I would be more happy doing hands-on body work. I signed up for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health in San Diego, CA just before COVID-19 started to shut things down. I was able to start with online classes until in-person classes were able to resume. During my first hands-on class I remember thinking this was absolutely where I was meant to be! Soon after that class concluded I was hired at a chiropractic office which helped me learn quickly how to work with a variety of bodies and conditions. I completed a 1,000-hour program that included not only achieving Massage Therapy certification but also Holistic Health Practitioner certification. Through school, work, and personal clients, I racked up more than 250 full massages before I even graduated!
