Meet Amyrah High

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amyrah High.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
My interest in massage began with me being a toddler and my family constantly asking me to walk on their backs. Apparently, I was the perfect size for shiatsu. As time went on massage therapy became a lifesaver for me and my own muscular pain. My official massage journey as a career began in 2009. Upon getting my license, I went right into working for massage establishments, and within a couple of years I was working mobile as well, doing home visits. Eventually, I worked at multiple spas and chiropractors at a time, in addition to my mobile clients. I’ve gained experience in franchised spa clinics, private owned spas, two chiropractors, and chair massage events. From these experiences, my desire to work from my own massage suite continued to grow. All of my experiences, rather they are good, not so good, or indifferent, have contributed to my knowledge on the ‘dos and donts’; and the things I wanted to and/or not to have in my private space. I’m so thrilled that my patience to find a space that was ideal, as well as the tenacity to keep my eyes and mind open, has paid off. I’ve opened my own suite and I’ve been able to bring to fruition my vision for the type of ambiance, energy, and massage offerings and beyond! I love small businesses and I’m so happy to have one of my own.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
I guess it’s been a well-oiled roller coaster ride. There’s been sometimes where the coaster abruptly halted out of nowhere momentarily to handle issues before moving along again. There where jerks and shocking loops. I could milk that analogy until the cows come home, but instead I’ll say pointedly that life happens that creates struggles. I’ve had to recover from a car accident that caused me to have to reduce work to almost nothing for a while. It had me question if I’d be able to get back to continuing this career that I love to do. My healing has come a long way and I’m grateful. Personal challenges along the way make it tough at times that have required positive, creative and logical thinking and trusting my gut and higher self. The work harder not smarter became my motivator and saving grace, not some cliche.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I’m a Licensed Massage Therapist. I’m set apart because I’m a healer and bodyworker. I’m known for being able to make people feel so much better when they leave their session from when they came in. I find the problem areas that oftentimes are a surprise to the client. I really enjoy doing neuromuscular therapy and mixing in modalities to add to the effectiveness. I take techniques and make them my own, so they are most effective and unique. My detail-oriented way of working, creative and deductive reasoning skills are helpful elements that make my massage superior.

Do you have any memories from childhood that you can share with us?
Hard to narrow that down. Seeing Prince for the first time on TV, getting my first kitten, seeing Darth Vader in person, to name three.
