About the Practitioner
Amy Barr, CMT, CRT
My name is Amy Barr and I am a Certified Massage Therapist, Certified Reflexologist, Certified Reiki Master/Teacher, Certified Qigong (chee-gung) Practitioner and Instructor and owner of The Healing Room in Broad Ripple.
I started The Healing Room because of my own need for stress relief and healing. I remember walking into my first Massage Therapy session when I lived in Washington, DC and feeling a deep sense of calm I hadn't been able to achieve on my own. I connected with the work although at the time had no intention of changing careers. It wasn't long before the stress of my job would take me to the limits of what my body and mind were capable of which was was the beginning of a whole new life for me. In 2007 I went to Reflexology and Massage Therapy school and completed a year of each. I also became a Certified Reiki Master/Teacher and took 2 years each of Qigong (a practice similar to Reiki) after it was the very practice that I attribute to bringing me into the balance I needed to get back to "work".
My path led me to this amazing work and I am so very thankful to be here. I am dedicated to helping people find balance in their lives and know that stress can be dealt with using these ancient techniques that have been proven to work throughout centuries - I am proof, just ask!
