Amanda Stone LMT/Owner, graduated top of her class from Lexington Healing Arts Academy. In 2011 after completing her internship she opened her own business A Healing Stone Therapeutic Massage Center in Richmond, KY. Certified as a Medical Massage Practitioner she works with many local physicians and physical therapists to develop treatment plans for those suffering from chronic pain. Her passion for helping others and fascination with the human anatomy, motivates her to continue her education. Traveling when needed, she has studied with the top therapists/educators in the country such as Ralph Stephens, James Waslaski, and Shamaya Chah where she learned orthopedic massage and how to work with top elite athletes. Her newest adventure in education has led her down the path of P-DTR (Proprioceptive-Deep Tendon Reflex), a form of work that goes directly to the source of muscular problems that begin in the nervous system. Her philosophy is a simple one... function follows form. So she works with her clients creating individualized plans and educating them about their bodies. She works with them helping them to correct their form so that function and health can be restored and or strengthened in their bodies. When scheduling with her you will see she does not do Swedish, or Relaxation Massage, her specialty is structure work, and she sticks to what she is best at.
She is not only licensed by the state of Kentucky but is a nationally certified therapist by the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Body Work. She is a certified Medical Massage Practitioner, specializing in advanced treatment of chronic pain issues. She has also taken advanced training in Elite Sports Massage and had the great honor of working with many professional, amateur, and college athletes. She is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and The National Association of Professional Women.
