I feel so blessed to have found Emily for my massage therapy needs. I have recommended her to so many people, and I even have my daughter and husband going to Emily. We all feel so blessed to have such an experienced therapist!

This is my second time at Empowering Hands. Emily did a great job working on those sore and stiff neck muscles/nerves. I felt much better afterward and I am planning on going back for more pain relief and relaxation. Thanks Emily!

Emily is a very talented massage therapist! She is very intuitive and spent extra time on the places I needed it the most. I would highly recommend!
by justin on Feb 15
Emily has been great. I've always received massages from the inexpensive walk in shops that tend to cater to volume of customers versus the quality of their massage services. Never again. Emily has catered to my specific needs and is a true professional. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a more personalized experience.

Emily pays attention to my needs. Special care around my knees and any other concerns I have in the moment. She is strong when she needs to be and gentle when its necessary. I am so glad to make this connection. This was my third massage with her and it was, again, wonderful. I am a confirmed regular now.

My massage was very relaxing, the tension and knots in my muscles melted away.

Very knowledgeable. Jake's a good communicator as well. Massages are expensive and this industry is extensive in the Santa Cruz area so it's important to have someone with these personal skills.

Jake listened to my explanation of what was bothering me and used the appointment time to concentrate on those areas.
by Jen on Nov 21
Jake is FANTASTIC! He is above and beyond what I’ve typically experienced when getting a massage. Not only was my massage relaxing and felt amazing, he was able to work out all the stress I carry in my shoulders/neck but really listening to me and doing some amazing focused work! So happy I found him!

The room was freezing cold which was unpleasant. I want to be warm and comfortable when receiving a massage. The table was heated but whatever body part was being worked on was very cold. Massage therapist hands were ice cold as well. It wasn’t the optimal experience.

All I have to say is I have been to a LOT of massage therapists and Emily by far has been one of the best! I am very particular and nervous about having people touch certain areas which are tender, she is very gentle and precise. Her ability to find those “spots” and manipulate your muscles into submission is remarkable. She found areas I didn’t even know were tight and she massaged them right out. She is very professional and discreet, listening to what is bothering you and checking to make sure the pressure is good. She definitely has healing hands and she gives you a combination of all of her modalities. She is especially skilled with myofascial release technique. If you can’t already tell how impressed I am and pleased with her technique and abilities, I bought the 5 session packet. I can’t wait to see her again. I look forward to seeing her new place and her vision for the future. Thank you so much Emily, you are a Godsend!

This was my first visit here. Wonderful room and Emily gave me a fantastic massage. She was professional and listened to my request. I was feeling very stressed and I knew my muscles needed more than a Swedish/light massage but I wasn't up for it. She had just the right pressure to just the right tight muscles while keeping it stress-relieving as well. That's quite a balance. Thank you Emily.
