Dr. Jamie Reed, Director
L.Ac., DACOM, NCCAOM Diplomat
Jamie studied Chinese Medicine locally at AOMA a Graduate of Integrative Medicine. Jamie was able to learn and successfully treat a wide variety of health concerns including but not limited to: stress, anxiety, and digestive pain but found real success in treating pain and sports injuries.
Jamie has been treating sports and chronic injuries for over five years as an LMT. She finds the musculoskeletal system fascinating and loves working on complicated problems or injuries.
Jamie’s understanding of sports and chronic injuries has come from being active in a local Crossfit box, practicing Power and Olympic lifting, training for local races, and engaging in mobility and stretching recovery. It is through an active lifestyle that she found a passion for mobility, which has transferred into great results for her patients.
Her Bachelor’s of Science for Nutrition and Food Science was obtained from California State University of Northrigde. At CSUN, Jamie was able to learn the importance of proper a healthy diet for everyone ranging from athletes to the elderly. She frequently suggests food prescriptions as first step to health.
Today Jamie currently practices Chinese Medicine and massage therapy here in Austin. She spends her free time training for local Crossfit competitions, running Town Lake with her pup, and enjoying Austin’s outdoors with her husband.
Amy Hundley, LMT.
Amy has been a licensed massage therapist since early 2014. She attended Indiana College of Sports and Medical Massage when she was living in Indiana and went straight into working with a chiropractor, helping people heal after injuries or reduce chronic pain. This is what Amy most appreciates about massage, being able to help heal and bring relief from injuries or ailments.
She then moved to Orlando, Florida and worked at a day spa and started to incorporate more relaxation techniques into her practice. Now her massage style is more of a blend of relaxation and problem correcting techniques. Another move brought her to Key West, Florida where she worked in a resort spa and her massage style became even more focused on spa treatments and relaxation, but she never forgot her roots in medical massage and injury rehabilitation.
Now working at RX Acupuncture and Wellness, she is excited to get back into having clients that she works with regularly to correct muscle dysfunction and also bring relaxation and relief from pain.
