I absolutely love bodywork.  I think it's pretty much the best thing ever.  And for much of my life, I've seen massage therapists as superheroes -- because the ability to take someone's pain away is a super power, no doubt about it.

I absolutely love bodywork.  I think it's pretty much the best thing ever.  And for much of my life, I've seen massage therapists as superheroes -- because the ability to take someone's pain away is a super power, no doubt about it.


After my own life got derailed by health issues (now resolved, happily!), I entered massage school in 2015 with the hope of acquiring some super powers of my own.  I'm now trained in Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage, Myofascial Release, Shiatsu, and Neuromuscular Therapy, along with a thorough grounding in Anatomy and Physiology, Pathology, and Neurology.  The work I do uses elements from all these modalities and areas of knowledge to relieve my clients' pain and bring them into greater harmony with their own bodies.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

The attention to problem areas really helped my pain level.

I walked in the door extremely stressed, and walked out a MUCH calmer person, and ready to tackle the upcoming crazy week.

Emily's communication both with her voice and with her hands left me feeling the assurance of having been in the hands of a highly skilled professional, and she is just that. I highly recommend booking a session with her, especially for persistent problems.

I'm so amazed and impressed by this form of massage. It's so subtle, yet powerful, and effective. I've been struggling with a muscle spasm for months and finally found some relief after working with Emily. She is very knowledgeable and skilled and was able to tune in and target where I needed work and loosening up. I think this is the start of a long and healing relationship. I highly recommend her!

Emily is perceptive, professional, and gentle and powerful at the same time. Her studio is a bright and quiet space, and time with her feels warm and relaxed. I can feel the work she does loosening tension head to foot, and I leave feeling light and renewed.

Emily came through in an emergency situation and helped me work out some very stressed muscles. She is an angel.

Emily is incredibly good at listening to the body and responding to what it needs. She is skilled, attentive and welcoming! I will definitely recommend her to patients with chronic pain or other long term physical issues and injuries!
