Amanda Jacobson
Amanda Jacobson
Owner, LCMT, CCMA, FMT Level 1 Certified, dōTERRA Wellness Advocate, Skincare Technician, AMTA Member, Holy Fire Reiki I & II Practitioner
Amanda has been certified in massage therapy since August of 2005, graduating in 2006 from Community Care College with her Associates of Applied Science in Massage Therapy. She operated a private practice on her own in Tulsa before starting her career with Steiner Transocean Ltd. and Princess Cruises. While in London at the Steiner Academy, Amanda also became certified in skin-related therapies and was able to perform facials and mini-facials during her tenure with the company which she continued doing when she came to Fusion as a Skincare Technician.  Amanda spent two years with the Steiner as a massage therapist and assistant spa manager aboard 3 different vessels all over the world.  During her time at Fusion, she has become certified as a master aromatherapist along with certifications in clinical myofascial release techniques, cervical and sciatic pain relief, and kinesiology taping.  She is currently scheduled to acquire the following certifications: Holy Fire Reiki Master, RockTape IASTM therapist, Applied Kinesiologist, Postural Assessment therapist, and Ashiatsu practitioner.
 
"Becoming a massage therapist has been one of the greatest achievements of my entire life other than being a mother.  I have helped thousands of people all over the world achieve a pain-free way of living.  When I took over Fusion, it was never about the money to me, and it still isn't.  Of course we work to make money, but that pales in comparison to the joy and happiness it brings me when I know that my clients are becoming well and healthy because of something all of us at Fusion did for them.  They say when you do what you love you'll never work another day in your life, and that is where I am right now.  There is nothing at Fusion that is more important to me than the overall well-being and happiness of our clients.  I hope that is evident by the great care and luxury we offer to everyone when they step inside our doors and in the care of our hands."  - Amanda Jacobson

"Amanda has the best massage spa in Bartlesville! Her staff and business is up to date on the latest techniques and promos, her staff is constantly learning how to best serve and improve on their skills. I love walking into her business, it just automatically relaxes me and I know I will always be well taken care of.  You are AWESOME! " - S.H.
 
"When my shoulder was in excruciating pain, my primary care doctor spent 10 minutes diagnosing it, decided it was a rotator cuff inflammation, gave me a cortisol shot, and sent me on my way.  When that didn't fix it, he suggested that the next step was going to be expensive and painful shoulder surgery that would take years of therapy to heal.  Instead, Amanda worked with my chiropractor to diagnose my TOS, and develop a treatment plan with her, her staff, and a physical trainer, that had me healed in 8 months!" - S.E.

**NOTE**  Amanda is by SPECIAL REQUEST ONLY. Please contact Lauren, Alexis or Amanda directly in regards to scheduling any appointments with her. Thank you.

"Hope does an excellent job with eyebrow waxing/tinting.  She paid attention to the shape of my face and shaped my eyebrows in the best way to compliment, rather than just a general cleanup.  I couldn't believe the difference just a little tweaking to the shape could make.  She takes time and attention to make sure that they are symmetrical.  She also did a great job tinting my brows to make them look fuller and add a more youthful look to my appearance.  I've already booked another appt to keep my eyebrows looking their best." - R.T.
