Do you give yourself time to relax and rejuvenate to just BREATHE and REST???

Do you put in a great run or workout but don't have time to stretch or have bodywork done?
If so, it's time to find your oasis. Let me help you!
I provide a variety of services specifically tailored to your needs. Each session is unique to each individual while creating a spa environment and experience for you. When you come in for a session, the studio becomes your own private oasis: the smell of essential oils hits you at the door, the pleasant glow of salt lamps present a warmth to the room, a heated table is ready for you to relax under the toasty blanket, and warm bodywork tools are ready to provide heat and warmth to your body if you so wish. For that hour you can just BREATHE....RELAX...and RENEW YOU!
Don't worry about falling asleep or snoring on my table....it happens all the time!
Whether you are looking for therapeutic, specialized bodywork to help work out the knots, or just wish to take a break to just relax from the day to day, I hope you make the choice to give back to yourself....... because you deserve it!
I became a wellness professional who branched into my own practice after my medical struggles and 7 year (total) infertility journey. This led to multiple surgeries, miscarriages, losses and numerous holistic therapies and westernized based traditional practices.....all in search for viability. This empowered Emily to seek further options, to find balance between eastern and western medicine in order to help her body heal and provide the optimal environment for her babies to one day grow and develop. Ultimately Emily met a few holistic based practitioners who helped provide a specialized fertility treatment plan while continuing her education and healing at the John Barnes Treatment Center in Sedona, AZ and undergoing her own Women's Health Seminar as a practitioner.
During this process Emily worked with a Naturopath MD to help provide the optimal diet and supplements to not only work on structure but the environment within her body.
2 months later, Emily became pregnant naturally with twins!
Twice the BLESSING....Twice the fun....TWO MIRACLES instead of one!
I am now a mama of 26 wk micro-preemie twins and a soul fighter for health and wellness through the eyes of a NICU parent and practitioner. After managing 10 specialists and multiple therapies for my premature sons, I knew life had greater plans for me, far more than I had for myself.
My infertility journey led me to specializing in women's health and infertility promoting a holistic based practice. I am honored to walk with women on their fertility journey in hopes of conceiving a child. I help to support them throughout the course of their pregnancy.
My 26 wk micro-preemie journey led me to a lifetime of learning and appreciation in celebrating the subtle small victories as they make up the AMAZING victories ahead! No footprint is too small to leave an imprint on the heart.
When Emily is not working, she enjoys spending time with her children, her family and watching them grow. She has several interests/hobbies, however her primary is soaking in every minute of snuggles she can with her children and helping to raise them.
Emily never knew her journey would one day become her destiny. Emily has a dear appreciation for this line of work and for helping to address the BODY, MIND and SOUL together as ONE and embrace what makes you "WHOLE".
For some, it may be chronic pain and working on pain management, coping and learning ways to help our bodies function and heal.
My life has been impacted by highs and lows (challenge, pain and small victories). These small victories have paved a beautiful journey, woven together by broken pieces allowing a beautiful gift to be shared. And now I feel honored to share my gift. To serve, to meet clients where they are and to hold space for them, for you. In life you are given a deck of cards to play, and how you handle those cards will determine your results. You will never lose anything by pushing forwards in a healthier, positive direction for yourself and to find answers whatever that my be.
My hopes for you.....
1. To give back to yourself.
2. To find the person and therapy that resonates with you.
3. To be open to change and to flow with the journey where it leads you.
Put the hands back into your own healthcare. Give yourself bodywork and see how you feel. Please be open to change, open to the journey and open to amazing results. Find the person and therapist who will be best for YOU and the work that resonates with you. The person you connect with, the one who helps make you feel good....be better.....and do better. If for whatever reason I feel you would benefit from another therapist's specialty I will refer you on to give you the best care possible.
It would be my honor to help you, should you choose my services in the near future.

Myofascial Release- The John Barnes Method
(with postural assessment)
Myofascial Release treats the entire mind/body complex eliminating the pressure of the restricted myofascial system that causes the symptoms.
Warm Bamboo Massage
The Art of Bamboo Massage:
Known for its healing properties, this massage works at all levels to balance, calm and energize you physically, mentally and spiritually. There is nothing better than warm bamboo gliding over your skin while allowing the underlying tissues to soften and release. Bamboo massage can be performed with swedish or deep tissue allowing the bamboo to roll and knead the tissue. This creates an extreme sensation of relaxation and well-being.
Bamboo has earned its reputation from its holistic and soft apperance while symbolizing strength, fertility, youth, prosperity and peace.
A bamboo massage is typically done with hollow organically-treated bamboo cane of different lengths and diameters. Longer sticks of various widths are used for gliding strokes whereas smaller tools can be used for more detailed work.
***Warm bamboo is believed to be similar to hot stone therapy. It brings the warming, soothing effect of hot stone into the massage without the extra time, mess and prep work. In addition, bamboo is believed to hold the heat longer compared to the stones.
Warm Himalayan Salt Rock Massage
In addition to seeing a beautifully glowing Himalayan salt lamp in your room, you get to experience the warmth of himalayan salt rock on your body. Some say they can almost feel the minerals of the salt being absorbed into the skin.
Benefits of Himalayan Salt:
- The stones are naturally antimicrobial
- The salt contains 84 minerals essential to a healthy body.
- Minerals provide a gentle exfoliation on the skin, making the skin feel smooth and soft after your massage session.
- Assist with detoxification as it is moving the blood and the lymph around in the body. Helps to circulate the toxins out of the body.
-Change energetic ions: Himalayan salt stones give off negative ions. What does this mean? When there are too many positive ions in the body it leads to inflammation. Therefore, Himalayan salt stones can help balance the positive and negative ions.
Fertility Massage (2 hr)
Fertility massage is a unique, holistic approach to your fertility journey. Fertility massage is performed within a certain time of a woman's cycle while treating the entire woman. It consists of a 120 minute full body massage working to release toxins, improve circulation and enhance hormone production. 30-60 minutes of the massage focuses on abdominal/lumbar/pelvis and possible sacral work consisting of myofascial release (MFR) and abdominal massage. Goal: working to release inner/external restrictions the body's external pattern is holding. Directly this effects the pelvis/sacrum, structural body and internal environment and organs. Focus is on the abdomen, uterus, fallopian tubes while releasing connective tissue patterns of restrictions.
We are creating a sacred space within a woman's uterus, her "palace" of holding while working to open the fallopian tubes with MFR work and improve the chance of implantation and fertilization. Reflexology and craniosacral work is performed to help optimize other systems within the body to promote homeostasis. Castor oil treatments provided with a hot water bottle; castor oil stimulates the healing and cleansing for fertility. A home program follows post treatment for cleansing.
**If undergoing fertility treatments, an authorized doctor's signature is requested as we work alongside you and your doctor's treatments.

ASTYM- Restore, Revitalize, Recover

ASTYM treatment was recently featured on "The Doctors" highlighting it's capacity to regenerate mechanisms of the body in order to rebuild and heal the soft tissues. Treating clinicians are seeing fantastic results with ASTYM therapy, even on chronic, stubborn conditions. Athletes are finding relief and getting back into their daily activities in which they love.
The suction of the cups lift the superficial tissue to allow blood flow into the area, promote healing of the tissue, separate the fascia, and eliminate the external factors and toxins. It follows the meridians which are pathways in the body where "life energy" flows. Studies have shown that cupping therapy can drive out pathogenic factors that can cause pain and disturbance in the homeostasis of the body.
Plastic cups are used for static decompression (will usually leave marks that should fade within 1-20 days).
Silicone cups are used for dynamic movement and will not leave marks; usually redness during and post treatment.
Most clients report feeling a decrease in pain, increase in movement/mobility and generally feel better post treatment.
Clients may feel relief within 1-5 sessions; protocol of 1x/wk for plastic cups while allowing the body to rejuvenate. Full benefits are usually achieved after 5-10 sessions. (10 sessions considered one course of treatment).
