Enhance Life's Qualityimage

Hello! My name is Amber Goodman. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist,  Shamanic Practitioner, and Founder of Healing Tree Therapeutics. I attended massage school at The Academy of Natural Therapy in Eaton, Colorado and graduated in 2000. I have been happily serving the Des Moines community for over 13 years. I am also a spiritual mentor and ceremonialist, with over nine years of Shamanic and Spiritual Mentorship Training at the Sundust Oracle Institute in Seattle, Washington.

I originally got into massage because of a deep desire to help people. It wasn't until massage school and starting my own practice that I truly realized the potential of massage. As a child I had injured my neck and broke my ribs twice. Pain and discomfort was a part of my daily life-something I thought we all lived with. After going to massage school, I completely changed my lifestyle. I adopted the philosophy that I can only help another as much as I can help myself. For me this entails good nutrition, regular exercise, massage, chiropractic, sometimes acupuncture, and a lively spiritual practice. I can honestly say I feel wonderful. I no longer experience pain on a daily basis which allows me to really enjoy the work that I do.

I truly believe we don't have to hurt. There are so many things that we can do to help ourselves. Through good nutrition, a little exercise or better yet-play, and an individually designed wellness plan that includes tapping into our spiritual intuition, we can greatly enhance life's quality. I specialize in neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, deep tissue , injury treatment, wellness care and pain management for seniors.

I hold deeply the understanding that true health can only be achieved if the soul is tended to. Often times the bodily pain or mental anguish we suffer from is an indication that one's soul is in despair, be it due to trauma that has happened many years ago or that is currently happening. Tending to the soul, like natural health modalities, helps a person exist more whole-heartedly. Therefore, they are better able to handle the ups and downs of life with more love, compassion, and vitality.  I facilitate this soul work by connecting directly to spirit through intuitive readings, spiritual mentorships,  soul retrievals and helping guide the client in the way most suitable for them as they work to build their personal relationship with spirit. 

My other interests include creating art, gardening, sustainable living, and helping youth. I would love to be a part of your wellness team!

Yours in Wellness,

 Amber Goodman

In my eleven years of practice, I have had great opportunities for diverse experiences of collaboration with physical therapists, chiropractors, and spas which have given me a lens of unique approach to each of my client’s and their needs.
As a born healer, I specialize in the arts of Deep Tissue, Swedish, Hot Stone, Reiki, Sports, Trigger Point, and Pregnancy massage. Holding space and listening to each person I work with, I let intuition and flexibility fuse these modalities along with stretching, and kneading to provide a restorative, therapeutic treatment aiding the body’s own natural healing process and reconnecting the body, mind, and spirit.
Those who have benefited from my work are also diverse: athletes, weekend warriors, chronic pain suffers, migraine sufferers, mothers-to-be, motor vehicle accident victims, work injury (L&I) and many others who are seeking over-all wellness of being.
