I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I studied at the University of Puerto Rico and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Agronomy. I served in the United States Air Force for six years. Afterwards, I studied massage therapy at Blue Cliff Community College in Gulfport, Mississippi. Recently relocated to the Grand Cities Area, I'm licensed by the North Dakota massage therapy board. My education from Blue Cliff includes neuromuscular therapy, sports massage, shiatsu and prenatal massage. I look forward to helping my clients relax their sore muscles and provide ways to maintain an active, healthy and pain-free lifestyle.
My name is Amber Finch. I am a licensed massage therapist in North Dakota and Colorado and have been nationally certified since 2009. I graduated from Bismarck State College in 2009 with an Associates Degree in Applied Science and Massage Therapy. I practiced massage therapy for 6 years in Colorado as well as working as a Rehab Tech at the Peaks Care Center Nursing Home. I recently relocated to Grand Forks, ND with my husband Mat and son Kaden. I enjoy the outdoors, fishing and boating on the lake, going to concerts and shopping.
My main focus is:
I want my clients to live a healthy and pain free lifestyle. I love to work with people who suffer from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, back and knee pain, and headaches. I also love to work with the geriatric population, and I believe that the power of touch can be very healing and beneficial to them. I am currently finishing my degree in Occupational Therapy at UND.
Nationally Certified and ND Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT). I have been practicing massage therapy since 2010 and am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor. I enjoy offering full body pain relief but I specialize mostly in headaches, neck & shoulder pain, lower back restrictions, sciatica and prenatal massage. I am certified in the following massage techniques:
Additional specialized training I have completed includes carpal tunnel relief techniques, infant massage, hot stone and cold stone massage and aromatherapy massage.
I have completed Master's Yoga Teacher training of over 700 hours: YogaFaith 500 hour Master Yoga Instructor and Yogahour 200 hour yoga teacher; registered as a Yoga Alliance RYT-500.
I teach yoga classes for the main purpose that yoga was intended, for self-care and wellness. The focus in my yoga classes is:
My yoga background:
I have been practicing yoga since 2007, although I began dedicating myself to regular practice in 2011. I have trained mostly with yoga teacher Carol Murie in Grand Forks, ND. In 2015, I completed a rigorous 200 hour yogahour teacher training created by Darren Rhodes of Arizona. I trained under Sam Rice of Arizona and Patty Gorder of Grafton, ND through the Sam Rice School of Yoga. I began another 200 hour teacher training in 2017 with YogaFaith which is founded by Michelle Thielen of Washington. YogaFaith is a christ-centered yoga practice that can include prayer, Bible scripture, christian music either with lyrics or not. I completed my 500 hour Master's Yoga Certification through YogaFaith in June 2018 to include more in depth study into specific ailments, sports, various yoga styles, PTSD, trauma, anxiety/depression, limitations and more. Beyond my trainings, I have taken additional workshops & seminars from Christina Sell, Dr. Neil Patel, Sam Rice, Carrie Hoff and Jaimie Perkunas.
How yoga has helped me & could possibly help you:
Yoga is a true passion of mine but I feel it is also necessary to my physical health, mental & emotional health and spiritual growth. When I dedicated myself to regularly practicing yoga, it strengthened me in ALL of those areas. Yoga is not a religious practice but it has allowed me more quiet time to meditate on scripture, to pray and more time with God, where my full life of children and business endeavors do not allow for.
I've had SO much less pain and more mobility since practicing yoga regularly! Doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, OT, personal trainers...so many professionals now highly recommend yoga! Why? It has numerous benefits for every single person while having less "side effects" than other fitness or wellness routines (ex. running is hard on the joints, weight lifting is hard on the muscles and joints, etc.). Every body is different but I encourage you to try a private session and a few basic classes to truly experience the difference it could make. I'm excited to help more people feel better and live more fully. Thank you for allowing me this opportunity.

Yoga is one of the most respected methods of self-care and personal development. It calms the nervous system and balances the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of ourselves. It is a highly effective set of techniques to enhance health and vitality, by promoting energy flow throughout the body. It includes physical poses, breathing exercises, meditation and deep relaxation. Cultivating the virtues of the heart on the mat helps us meet the challenges we encounter off the mat with an open heart.
