Emily graduated Maui School of Therapeutic Massage in 2012. There she studied Myofascial Release and Neuromuscular Therapy under the late James Hackett who recently has been inducted in to the Massage Therapy Hall of Fame. She became passionate about Structural Integration after finding the body work they were practicing in those specific classes had given her relief from the pain caused by her Scoliotic curvature of her spine. Eager to help others who have muscular pain caused by postural imbalances she began focusing her education on Structural Integration. While studying in Maui she had also been introduced to Hawaiian Lomi Lomi by Jeana Iwalani. Inspired by the Hawaiian culture and the philosophy behind traditional Hawaiian medicine, Emily began an immersion class where she got the opportunity to study the Hawaiian culture. Emily received a thorough education in Big Island Style Hawaiian Lomi Lomi. Combining her knowledge fascia and trigger points from Myofascial Release and Neuromuscular Therapy and the fluidity and intention of connecting down to the bones from Lomi, Emily has developed a soothing yet very affective massage style.

Emily began working in the Professional Clinic at MSTM right out of school and briefly assisted teachers in the classroom before she made her way back home to the mainland. Emily began her own private practice in Northern California until she moved to the Bay Area to begin working at the Ritz Carlton Spa in Halfmoon Bay where she was highly requested. Although she enjoyed working in the spa setting, Emily longed to get back in to more therapeutic body work. She then began working as a contracted employee at Google in Mountain View California. Her approval rating is an outstanding 98% favorable, voted by the Google employees that have received her work. Emily is now a Nationally Board Certified Massage Therapist and is excited to bring Scotts Valley a luxury massage experience with out straying away from the therapeutic benefits of massage at an affordable rate for many.

Emily is very knowledgeable and “listened to my body”.

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!

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.
