I have felt a deep need to help comfort others through massage since a young age. After caring for family members and sustaining serious injuries myself in a car accident as a teen, the desire to alleviate pain in others became a driving passion that led me to my calling. I became a licensed massage therapist in 2005 and since then I have been trained as a yoga instructor and in several healing modalities as noted below.


I am known regionally as a Sacred Lomi Lomi practitioner and teacher and locally as a yoga teacher and an intuitive treatment massage therapist using deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point, active isolated stretching, passive stretching, cross fiber friction, and origin and insertion techniques integrated holistically with all my training.   My goal is to help my clients break pain patterns and support them in continuing their journey to a better quality of life.   I believe my ability to understand and listen is my gift, and that all healing begins with unconditional love.  

My sanctuary is Sukha Healing Arts Center in Des Moines, Washington. Sukha's goal is to support you where you are -- physically, emotionally and spiritually-- and to help you to be in alignment with your higher self.   Sukha was created as a heart-centered destination to assist you in finding your divine truth from a dream-book my daughter and I created on our trip to Bali in April of 2011.  The dream became a reality in September of 2011.  Through the support of loved ones, we were able to complete an extensive remodel and were up and running in 20 days. 


A little about me outside the realm of Sukha…I love spending time with my daughter, gardening, writing poetry, painting, jumping out of airplanes, music, dancing, yoga, spending time with family and friends, cooking, reading, remodeling, traveling, learning and continuing to check off my bucket list.


Summary of training and experience: Massage Therapist & Spa Therapist (2005), Sacred Temple Lomi Practitioner and Facilitator (2009), Yoga Teacher (2012), Energy Worker (2013). Teachers:  Sacred Lomi Hawaiian Temple Bodywork studying under Tom Cochran and Donna Jason.  I continue to further my education in the Hawaiian practices of ho'oponopono.   200hr / 2-year yoga certification under Laura Yon-Brooks M.A., LMT, RYT.  Energy Work taught by Art RunningBear.  Certification in Reiki I & II under Norma Jean Young.


Sending you love and light beyond today.

Hello!  My name is Amber Goodman.  I am a licensed massage therapist and shamanic practitioner, and founder of Healing Tree Therapeutics.  I attended massage school at The Academy of Natural Therapy in Eaton, Colorado, graduating in 2000.  I have been happily serving the Des Moines community for over nine years.  I am also a spiritual mentor and ceremonialist, with over nine years of Shamanic and Mentorship Training at the Sundust Oracle Institute in Seattle, Washington. 

I originally got into massage because of a deep desire to help people.  It wasn't until massage school and starting my own practice that I truly realized the potential of massage.  As a child I had injured my neck and broke my ribs twice.  Pain and discomfort was a part of my daily life - something I thought we all lived with,  After going to massage school, I completely changed my lifestyle.  I adopted the philosophy that I can only help another as much as I can help myself.  For me, this entails good nutrition, regular exercise, massage, chiropractic, sometimes acupuncture, and a lively spiritual practice.  I can honestly say I feel wonderful!  I no longer experience pain on a daily basis which allows me to really enjoy the work that I do. 

I truly believe we don't have to hurt.  There are so many things that we can do to help ourselves.  Through good nutrition, a little exercise or better yet-play, and an individually designed wellness plan that includes tapping into our spiritual intuition, we can greatly enhance life's quality.  I specialize in neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, deep tissue pregnancy massage, injury treatment, wellness care and pain management for seniors. 

I hold deeply the understanding that true health can never be achieved if the soul is not tended to.  Often times, the bodily pain or mental anguish we suffer is an indication that one's soul is in despair, be it due to trauma that has happened years ago or that is currently happening.  Tending to the soul, like natural health modalities, helps a person exist more whole-heartedly.  Therefore, they are better equipped to handle the ups and downs of life with more love, compassion and vitality.  I facilitate this soul work by connecting directly to spirit through intuitive readings, soul retrieval, and helping guide the client in the way most suitable for them as they work to build their personal relationship with spirit. 

My other interests include creating art, gardening, sustainable living and helping youth. 

I would love to be a part of your wellness team!
Yours in health,
