Amber Collins LAc, MAcOM
Growing up I loved nature, animals and silence. Those qualities still exist significantly within me and every day I feel quite lucky that my profession not only allows, but encourages me to connect with them. More than anything, I hope to empower every person with the tools and know-how to be the best version of themselves they can be. I believe every person has an authentic and inspiring story to tell and I encourage you to come in, and share it with me!
I’ll start…when I am not practicing this beautiful medicine, I am working in our Organic Garden (Hardy Seed Farms), doing yoga, playing with my animals, hiking, kayaking, reading or cooking. If you ever catch me outside, I will likely be staring intensely at the water on a leaf, the exact shape of a bug’s wing or something else fascinating about the earth!
If I haven’t convinced you to stop by and say howdy (I grew up in Texas), know that I will always approach my practice with integrity, compassion, kindness, humility, authenticity, dedication and above and beyond customer service. That is my promise to you Tennessee.
