I met Calvin Boothe in the early 1990s when he was assigned to my medical case as my myotherapist. I had a badly pinched nerve in my lower back and his regularly administered massages were instrumental in helping me heal. That experience opened my eyes to the therapeutic effect of massage. Ever since, with the exception of several years when job and education commitments took me to other states, Calvin has been my massage therapist.anonymous
I am a chef, on my feet all day, engaged in physically demanding labor, and under lots of mental stress. I truly believe I would not be as healthy as I am, let alone able to do my job, if I wasn't having twice monthly full-body massages. Calvin "reads" my anatomy carefully, focusing in on muscles in need of particular attention from visit to visit. He is caring and thoughtful in his efforts and always professional. I trust him completely. When he is working on my body, my well-being is his complete focus.
I am fortunate to be Calvin's client and now with years of knowing him, to call him a dear friend.Sylvia M. Henderson

I haven't even used my Living Social voucher yet, but I already got one of their massages/Reiki with Reyna. I had persistent back pain and lots of mental pressure from work and recently running a half marathon -- I left feeling so good and the next two nights I slept like a baby.
Can't wait to go back to use the voucher and get another massage by Reyna. Plus the owner of AMT gave me these free samples of well reviewed supplements that helped my recovering from my half marathon--basically, I was still feeling not 100% recovered and the samples really helped out a lot.
Thanks AMT and get a massage with Reyna!Crista

Ronna has a warm and loving personality and doesn't go on and on in "new age speak". She is down to earth and facilitates the positive flow of energy from the cosmos to you.
