About Amy Brines


Welcome to Bonsai Massage & Bodywork!

Hi! My name is Amy Brines and I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Cupping Therapist with more than 9 years experience. 

I love what I do. A lot! I get to help people every day, and that’s an amazing gift.

Through massage and cupping, I assist clients in feeling better, moving better and living better lives. My clients come from all walks of life, some struggle with chronic pain, some are recovering from injuries and others are looking to relax from a stressful day. My goal each session is to provide therapeutic massage, without causing pain, in a relaxing and soothing environment. 

And most importantly, each massage session is about my client, not me. What are your goals in a session? What are you looking to improve through massage? How can I help you achieve the outcome you are looking for? In my sessions, clients are listened to and heard. And they are also safe and their boundaries are respected. 

There is no cookie cutter massage for my clients either. 

I combine my background of Eastern and Western massage techniques including cupping therapy, acupressure, myofascial technique, trigger point therapy, lymphatic drainage, Shiatsu, Reiki, Swedish massage and deep tissue and customize a session to each client’s needs. 

Amy lives in Willowbrook with her husband Phil and their two cats Bonsai and Willow. 

Some fun facts about me:

-  I have been playing golf since I was nine years old. 

- I once starred in a TV movie with Mr. T! 

- I love animals. My first pet was an albino parakeet named Cindy 

(after Cindy Brady from the Brady Bunch!)

- I used to be a blues singer.
