WILLOWS HOUSE PRACTITIONERS
Although all of the practitioners at Willows House are independent contractors with their own unique skills and style, we all share a common goal: helping our clients live their best lives. Whether you come in for a relaxation massage, a reflexology session, some deep tissue work, or an intraoral TMJ treatment, the expert massage therapists at Willows House will make sure you leave feeling your best. Several providers can be booked directly through this website using the "Book Now" button, but some manage scheduling through their own websites or scheduling systems. Those links are provided below where applicable. All practitioners are fully licensed and have received extensive training to develop their expertise.
Amy Riter became a massage therapist because of her belief in the profound healing power of touch. She is a big proponent of body acceptance and believes that people of all sizes and shapes deserve the care, relaxation and rejuvenation that massage provides. Her massage treatments include Swedish, deep tissue, Himalayan hot stones, and cupping. In addition to full body work, she particularly enjoys focusing on the smaller muscles in the head, neck, and shoulders.
Amy has a B.A. in English and French Literature and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing. When she's not at the massage table, she's usually reading, writing, painting or hanging with her wonderful daughter.
