Meet Amy Kuecks, a licensed massage therapist and health coach specializing in therapeutic massage for surgical recovery, cancer support, chronic illness, and well-being. She battled chronic fatigue for 17 years, but after Amy learned how to heal herself, she felt a call to help others do the same.
Tell us a healing story that changed a life.
I have a client that came to me with an A1C of 13.1. We worked on him 3-4 times a month for 6 months and when his doctor retested him, his A1C was down to 5.4. That was 2.5 years ago. He still comes in and is still diabetes-free.
What has been the biggest challenge or obstacle you’ve faced in your life, and how did you overcome it?
My own illness. After 12 years of working with various medical doctors with limited success, I refused to accept that my life was as good as it was going to get and began a holistic journey. I invested in me and worked with an acupuncturist, foot zoners, energy workers, and health coaches. I am happy to say that I have not had an episode since 2013.
What advice do you have to give?
Don’t give up. The body wants to heal itself from the inside out. We all have an inner physical that wants to bring our bodies back to homeostasis, we just need to listen to it to know the steps we need to take.
Who is the most influential person in your life?
My mom. She was the one that started me on my journey into eastern modalities and wouldn’t let me give up when I was at my lowest. I was blessed to return the favor and help her through her cancer journey.
What are three things people can do to achieve a better state of wellness?
1 – Drink more water – half your body weight in ounces every day to feel better.
2 – Move. Your lymphatic system is your garbage disposal. Your lymph nodes are the recycling centers that process toxins. They are located at each joint. Movement helps pump lymph to remove toxins from the body.
3 – Avoid artificial colors and flavors. They are not your body’s friends.
