Emily is deeply driven to encourage, educate and empower her patients on their own diverse journey of seeking health. It is important to her to have a thorough understanding of her patients, from their goals and concerns to their anatomical/ pathological presentation, to create the most safe, effective and individualized treatment plan. Emily views the body as a whole and her goal is to get to the root of the pain rather than mask the presenting symptom. She enjoys integrating her knowledge of the human body through assessment, treatment, education and homecare all while providing an area of safe space and serenity for her patients.
She does not believe that massage should be painful to be effective. She encourages her patients to listen to their bodies throughout the treatment.
Emily uses a wide variety of techniques including but not limited to visceral manipulation (a gentle technique focusing on the abdominal organs to help increase mobility and decrease scar tissue caused from a variety of conditions, injuries or surgeries), myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, sports massage, hydrotherapy and therapeutic exercise. She is looking forward to taking more courses this upcoming year in craniosacral therapy.
When she is not in the clinic you can find her at the dance studio where she is continuing her lifelong passion of dance, practicing yoga (Emily is a RYT) or on an adventure outdoors. Hiking, kayaking and skiing are a few of the many outdoor activities she loves to do.
