Amanda K. Lunn, LMBT (NC# 6481)
Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist
Amanda was born in Hitchin, England and throughout the years has lived in Germany, Tennessee, New York, and North Carolina. In 2004 she attended Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY, received Dean’s List honors, and ultimately graduated Magna Cum-Laude with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Health Sciences and a minor in Integrative Health Studies. Originally, Amanda was planning to become a doctor, but one day during a complementary health class, a massage therapist came in to discuss her trade. During that discussion, Amanda got butterflies in her stomach and realized that massage therapy was her pathway to helping others heal. Later in 2004, Amanda received her massage diploma from the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage in Rochester, NY.
A couple years later, she married her high school sweetheart and decided to forge a new life with her husband in North Carolina. Since receiving her massage diploma, she has given over 6000 hours of massage and is licensed in both North Carolina and New York. She also is nationally certified. Amanda chose this career because it fits her personal beliefs of wellness and healing. She feels it is important to look at and treat one’s whole body instead of a few, minute cells within it. Furthermore, she believes that integrating various health modalities is essential to achieving total wellness. Overall, her aim is to help people to take control of their own health. When she is not working, Amanda enjoys being outside and reconnecting to nature, gardening, and spending time with her husband and two little girls, Ashley and Amber.

HOW DOES MASSAGE WORK WITH CHIROPRACTIC?
Massage Therapy is the manipulation of the muscles and other soft tissues of the body. The therapist will massage specific areas often varying pressure and movement using their hands and fingers. This massage is intended to relax the soft tissue, decrease muscle spasms, increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the massaged areas and decrease pain. Addressing soft tissue problems is a vital component of chiropractic care. This is because muscles move joints, while ligaments and fascia support them. If a skeletal misalignment is adjusted without addressing the related soft tissue, your tight muscles and shortened fascia can pull your joints back out of alignment causing your problems to persist. In addition to promoting total healing, massage therapy offers many other benefits to your chiropractic care plan. Recovery is normally faster when you address multiple components of your pain syndrome by utilizing massage. Chiropractic treatment often proceeds more easily and with less discomfort when hyper-tonic soft tissue has been relaxed. You may be less anxious and better prepared to receive your chiropractic adjustments after spending time with one of our therapists. Adjustments frequently last longer when muscle tension is released, making it much easier for your body to achieve optimal health and wellness.

Coming to Amanda for a massage is the highlight of my month. As it gets closer to my scheduled day, I begin anticipating this hour and wish it would hurry up. Amanda is a talented therapist who listens and responds appropriately to my particular problems and complains. An added bonus is that she is friendly and makes me feel that I am an important client.

A massage by Amanda is more than just a massage, it is a full experience. From her calming voice to her understanding of what you need at that time, you leave feeling much better than you did when you started. I have seen Amanda for the past 6 years for massage, and she has been able to help me with issues from headaches to stiffness, using both relaxing and firm pressure techniques. I have recommended Amanda to my friends and family and will continue to do so over and over again!

As I spend hour after hour sitting at a computer, I have been a massage client for several years now, for the monthly removal of the ‘knife in my shoulder blade’. Having recently moved to the Raleigh area, I was afraid it would take me forever to find an excellent massage therapist.
So I thought I would try an AmazonLocal deal for a $29 massage in a chiropractor’s office in Cary. The woman went on and on about how through those special deals, she didn’t even make as much as she would for a 15 minute chair massage. And she didn’t deserve it either, given that what I received was little more than a backrub, and not even a good one at that.
So I hesitated before trying again with a LivingSocial deal for Anderson Chiropractic. The first one that I purchased was for a chiropractic analysis and treatment from Dr. Chad Anderson, which was terrific and definitely needed after the move. He told me their massage therapist Amanda was outstanding, but not yet employed here, it was not in my budget. So when another LivingSocial deal came up, I was able to meet Amanda and learn that firsthand. And the massage I purchased as a ‘deal’ was the same quality as all subsequent full-price ones have been.
She is a consummate professional. She listens. She has excellent skills and is able to ‘feel’ the knots before I mention them. Her treatment is calming and sensitive, yet she provides a deep tissue massage that is one of the best I have ever received.
I hope this review helps someone find her who needs her healing hands. My only fear in sharing this recommendation is that she will become so busy I won’t be able to get an appointment.

Struggling with physical illness, recovering from childbirth and persistent muscle aches and pains lead me to seek massage therapy. I saw other providers, but when I began seeing Amanda in May of 2012, my search for the perfect massage therapist ended.
I was very nervous about seeing a new therapist; however, Amanda has a natural soothing, warm and caring personality that quickly put me at ease so that I could enjoy the massage experience. She listens and focuses on YOUR needs. It is obvious that she genuinely cares about your massage experience versus this being “just a job.”
Her experience and treatment modalities have proven to be very effective. Amanda has been to Thailand to study massage methods that have worked wonders on my ailing body.
Amanda is very good at determining the best therapeutic style and approach based on your body’s needs. She is very good at listening to what you’re going through to provide the most beneficial massage experience for your specific needs.
I have seen several massage therapists, and Amanda has by far exceeded my expectations. I am proud to report that I am still a client of hers and will continue to seek her soothing hands. I highly recommend anyone to seek her well experienced hands.
-Michelle Stein from Holly Springs , NC
By far the best massages I’ve ever had! Amanda has magic hands. I’ve never been to a massage therapist as talented as her. She listens to what I want and seems to know exactly what my body needs. She is consistent every time. I always walk away feeling relaxed and like a new woman. I will never go to anyone else!
