Biographical Info

  • Amelia Ball, OTR is a holistic OT and creator of a mind/body/spirit wellness and preventive care based blog, QualOT.com. Amelia has been living and working at a SNF in Austin, TX after graduating from OT school at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in December, 2015. She has clinical experience working with individuals in skilled nursing facilities, inpatient rehab centers, inpatient psychiatric care, as well as shorter fieldworks in acute care, foster care, and children’s handwriting camp. Amelia became involved in the holistic OT community after experiencing the power of mind/body/spirit concepts not only in working with individual’s in mental health facilities, but with individual’s having to shift roles/routines/habits after being hospitalized for physical reasons. Amelia is passionate about preventive care and a need for a paradigm shift in the Western world focused on treating the whole person and underlying causes of an illness, injury, disease, disorder, condition, impairment, disability, activity limitation, or participation restriction rather than the current medical-model which is insurance and medication driven.
  • Amelia is inspired/ignited through continuous education and learning of health, wellness, and self-improvement concepts through books, Podcasts, workshops, conferences, CEU courses, and human connections. She received her bachelor of science in kinesiology/exercise science in 2012 and worked as a personal trainer before attending OT school. Amelia continues to believe that human movement is a large component to wellness and personally enjoys HIIT training, weight lifting, yoga, swimming, biking, boxing, rock climbing, hiking, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, and any activity that brings her outside close to nature. Amelia also has a strong belief that food is medicine and eats mostly whole, real foods with little added ingredients. Amelia has a strong sense of spirituality and a belief that every moment, experience, and relationship in this life has meaning. Amelia practices meditation, yoga, and breathing techniques to bring her closer to inner peace and connection with the present moment. Amelia loves traveling and strives to live a simple, minimalist lifestyle with less materialism and quality>quantity in every area.
  • As a new occupational therapist, Amelia is excited to work with other practitioners and bring the field closer to it’s roots as a “holistic” profession geared more toward a coaching model in which engagement in occupations are client-centered and largely include self-care, play, stress management techniques, sleep, rest, and other preventative care methods as an important aspect to overall health.
