About Us

Amber Van Elgort is a Registered Massage Therapist and the owner and operator of Blissful Balance Massage located 15 minutes west of Edmonton in Stony Plain, AB.

Amber specializes in Therapeutic Clinical Massage with additional certification in Advanced Orthopedic Massage. Caring for other people's well being and health has always been an important part of her life and she knew that she wanted to work in the field of healthcare. Massage Therapy was the perfect answer.

Amber decided to go back to school at the tender age of 33, after years of working in different high stress and low paying jobs. With a new found sense of determination and drive that came from a place in her heart not only to better herself, but to provide the life she wanted for her children,she headed into an intensive full time 2 year program at CDI college. While juggling full time school, a part time job, and raising twins on her own, she graduated with honors from the Advanced Massage Therapy Program in 2014.

The types of massage that Amber specializes in includes: Deep Tissue and Swedish Massage, Prenatal Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Sports Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Myofascial Release, Therapeutic or Mobility Massage, and Dynamic Cupping. Which basically means she can address everyone's needs regardless of physical issues, age or activity level. Amber has clients that are shift workers, 9-5'ers, athletes, teens, kids, elderly, pregnant mamas, retirees and those who suffer from injuries and conditions.

She chose to specialize in Therapeutic and Mobility Massage because she is fascinated by the puzzle that is the human body. Figuring out the source of pain and helping to correct the issues that cause discomfort for her clients is her main goal. There is nothing better for Amber than seeing the effects of a successful treatment and watching the progress of healing unfold in front of her and knowing that her treatments are truly helping.
