Amaris McIlwain, LMP

Amaris McIlwain is a licensed massage practitioner committed to her client’s health and wellbeing, through the use of multiple modalities and massage techniques. She graduated with High Honors, from the massage program at Everest College, Vancouver, WA.

She first gained her love of massage from her grandfather, who was always giving massages to family members. Remembering how much better she felt after receiving a massage, started giving massages to her parents and siblings, and found that she was able to help relieve pain and tension in those she massaged. At age 15 she bought her first massage book, and remembers giving her first full body massage, using draping, oil and the step by step instructions, then thinking how great it would be to give massages for a living.   

Amaris being raised by a mother, who valued naturopathic and other complementary healing modalities, gained a desire to work with like-minded people, and to help others achieve their health and wellness goals through massage.
