Take a step towards the pain free life you desire


Ikigai is an old Japanese concept that has long been associated with the nation’s long life expectancy. Ikigai has no direct translation into English. It is about finding genuine joy in life through purpose. In essence, your ikigai is the reason you wake up in the morning that brings value, purpose and happiness to your life.



Chronic persisting pain often gets in the way of the activities we love doing, sometimes stopping us from doing them completely and taking some of our life’s joys with it.

Patient Experiences

Amy is an absolute dream and the first medical practitioner to make me feel safe and genuinely cared for, maybe ever!! She is thoughtful and gentle, obviously imbuing each and every treatment with her care and expertise. Never judgmental or condescending, Amy approaches every symptom and scenario with compassion and empathy. I’ve been seeing her for a couple months now and could not recommend her enough. If you’ve been let down by western medicine again and again, as I have, you definitely need to try out Ikigai Wellness!

Amy has been an intricate part of me improving my overall health and well-being. I came to Amy asking for grief support after significant losses, and for relief from shoulder, knee and thumb pain that has been chronic. She is gentle, supportive and so effective at treating pain. Over the time she has worked with me I have begun to feel more mentally and physically whole. I am so fortunate to have her supporting me on this journey of wellness.

I came to Amy with debilitating lower abdominal pain that my doctors couldn’t find an explanation or treatment for. I felt very anxious about never having done acupuncture or really tried much eastern medicine, but Amy easily assured me through the process. Months later, my chronic abdominal pain and associated symptoms have nearly entirely subsided. And I’ve gone from having to lay flat 24/7 to being able to sit in class for 8+ hours straight. Amy has literally given me my life back.
