Amber Desmond has been a licensed massage therapist for over ten years. While she’s learned quite a bit of technique over the years, Amber leans heavily on her intuition and inner-guidance.  Amber’s ultimate goal as a massage therapist is to provide pain relief, relaxation, and a deeper awareness of one’s body. As an added bonus, hot stones and essential oils are included in all her massages.

Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

I am a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner offering holistic services to all age groups and am excited to be able to assist clients in achieving the highest level of wellness through conventional and complementary mental healthcare. I started in the psychiatric and substance use field as a registered nurse in 1987 and entered the holistic realm of complementary health in the early 2000’s as a yoga teacher, Reiki Master and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist (PRYT). In 2008 I completed an advanced certification in complementary and integrative therapies (CCIT) at Drexel University. While living in the Cleveland area, I attended Case Western Reserve University in Ohio and obtained an Advanced Practice Nursing Degree. Since 2011, I have worked with both children and adults prescribing medication and nutraceuticals. Additionally, I continue to offer PRYT sessions to those interested. Many practitioners offer either a holistic approach or a conventional one to health; my practice is unique in that I offer both to you! www.ashevilleholhealth.com
