Amy PBP Underwood OTR/LOTR/LIntegrative OT
My name is Amy Underwood. I am a mother, a wife, a lover of yoga, and a practitioner of the healing arts.
I graduated from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, with a degree in Occupational Therapy (BSc.OT) in 2005. Since then I have worked and lived in three continents, providing rehabilitation services in hospitals, outpatient clinics and skilled nursing facilities, as well as an international circus festival.
I have over a decade’s experience treating a wide variety of conditions, including stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, and orthopedics conditions.
In 2014, I became a Professional Bowenwork Practitioner, certified through Bowtech, the Bowenwork Academy of Australia and the American Bowen Academy. In 2016, I completed my certification in Kinesio Taping through Kinesio Taping International. I am currently completing my Childrens Yoga Certification through Yoga Kids, graudating in August 2017 and will be completing my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in the fall of 2017.
I have found that Bowenwork, Kinesio Taping, Yoga and my extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal and neurological injuries all work together to support the body during intensive training or daily life, minimize risk of injury, and speed recovery if injury occurs.
The techniques that I practice are light but powerful and appropriate for all.
I work with all ages, conditions, and injuries. I have a special interest in working with acrobats, athletes and performers who are training for sporting events or performances.
I am registered with NBCOT, the National Board for Certification of Occupational Therapists, Licensed by the State of Michigan Occupational Therapy Board, and insured for private practice.
