ABOUT EMILY

Hi! My name is Emily. I help individuals who suffer from chronic pain, and those whose limited movement is affecting their ability to experience life the way they want to. I help clients improve their health through home and workspace environmental consultation and design, providing educational workshops on important health topics, movement coaching, and Thai massage. I take an evidence-based approach while recognizing and incorporating the complexities and unpredictability of day-to-day life, to every individual’s unique situation.

Movement and health have always fascinated me. Though my definition of health has changed over the years, I’ve come to learn that health is not merely the absence of disease, but a state of being that is influenced by multiple factors in one’s life. To me, being healthy means that I have the ability to enjoy life without restriction, feel safe and supported by my community, and have the tools and skills necessary to nourish my body. 


My ongoing journey to heal chronic pain has led me to explore many modalities from martial arts, to cold therapy, and to even ditch my shoes as I learned about natural approaches to foot care. I believe in fostering a culture of curiosity, learning, and openness to new ideas, so as I continue learning how to heal my own body, I share my knowledge and experience to help my clients reach their full health potential.

MOVEMENT COACHING

Improving health through movement

As humans, we're designed to frequently move in diverse ways. Many individuals I work with experience limitations in their movement because of pain, discomfort, or apprehension.

My goal as a movement coach is to provide a safe environment and guidance for my clients to explore movement in nourishing way. This can be anything from improving performance in sport, to learning how to optimize your workplace set-up to reduce strain.

A movement session can consist of any combination of mobility, balance, massage, breathing, strength, agility, coordination, condition, etc. I strive to adjust the intensity of the session to meet your current physical and emotional state.

THAI MASSAGE

Traditional Thai Massage

Thai massage is a full-body, clothed massage that includes the use of a variety of stretching, trigger-point, and movement techniques. Thai massage is performed on a large, padded floor mat, and techniques are adjusted to the client’s comfort level and movement capacity.
