Client Reviews

Here’s what clients have to say…

“Emily has a healer’s heart and an intuitive touch.  Her approach to bodywork is less about placing a bandage on a “wound”, and more about treating the “wound” on a holistic level.    I started going to see Emily as a result of limited shoulder movement; an issue that physical therapy was unable to treat.   Emily has an intrinsic understanding of how our bodies respond to different modalities of work. She’s inquisitive, and wants to fully understand her clients’ lifestyles and designs her work around her client; rather than a “one size fits all” approach to massage.  I simply cannot say enough good things about Emily.  I would unconditionally and without hesitation, recommend her to anyone (and have!).”

“Emily was truly a life-saver for me.  Her massage therapy released very painful, tight muscles in my hip and legs. Her back massage released a lot of tension as well. Her manner is very calm and soft, her intelligence is obvious, and she genuinely cares about her patients. I felt so good afterwards!”

​”Emily is an excellent structural bodyworker with a strong intuitive sense of where to work and how much pressure to deliver to allow for a deeply relaxing and therapeutic experience. Highly recommend.”
​-Conor B. 

“Emily was fantastic- the best massage I have had in the Greater Portland area. She is kind and considerate, has a calm demeanor and really was able to loosen tight muscles. Her use of aromatherapy was a delightful bonus. I would highly recommend Emily to anyone who wants a great massage!”
-Gina F.

I am really quite picky about who I let work on my body, and Emily is on the short list. She is knowledgeable and I trust her 100%. Both her and her work are extraordinary! -Elizabeth

“Emily is an excellent neuro-muscular therapist.  I have been seeing her regularly for over a year now and found that she has a good understanding of trigger point therapy, human anatomy, and above all an excellent listener…Her technique is structured to to ensure the client’s comfort and pain tolerance levels. 5 stars….” -Sam

“Emily is one of a kind and a great value to my ongoing therapy.  She spent significant time at our initial session to assess my aches, pains and concerns and strategize a treatment plan.  She is thoughtful, approachable and a great listener!  And her treatments are amazing.  She’s the best!”    -Sherrin

“Emily’s massage felt wonderful!  And, the aches I came in disappeared. She is gracious, calm and is a good listener.  She used a wide range of techniques which all felt great  And, she paid close attention to how I was doing throughout.  Her space is beautiful and spacious and immediately gave me a feeling of peace.  I highly recommend Emily!” -Kate

​”Emily is the best! She is thorough, and I always walk away with a new understanding of my body mechanics. As a very active and athletic person, I appreciate her knowledge and attention. Always a great experience!”
​-Meg H.

 “Very thorough! She did an amazing new client consult and really figured out what I needed”

“Emily is an amazing masseuse. She is very knowledgeable of the inner workings and connectivity of the muscular system. She is personable and a joy to be around. I always feel like I had very productive work done on my body when I visit her table. I would highly recommend her service. “

“Emily is a delight and does an amazing job. She lets you know after the massage the body parts that which seem to be more troublesome than others at the time! I like that she gets into spots that other masseuses don’t seem to. She’s great !”
-Penny W.

“Went in for some tension related issues mainly in my back. Emily does an awesome job finding areas of tension and fixing them. Left feeling great! Definitely would recommend Emily, and you could probably ask any anatomy question you had, because she is super smart! Look up her blog great stuff!” -Nate

“I had been hearing amazing things about Emily’s healing practice, and she lives up to every bit of the hype!​”
​-Thressa W.

​”Emily is such a caring massage therapist! She listens and takes time with you, both before and after, to identify and understand your needs and concerns. She has a beautiful space that allows for relaxation and comfort and makes you feel at ease with her down to earth personality. I felt amazing after my last massage, and cannot recommend her more highly!”

​”Emily is a great massage therapist. She was able to increase my range of motion, while reducing pain in my body.”

​”Emily spends the time to zero in on your specific problems for pain and to come up with solutions. Not the same old same old massage. Above the rest.”
​-Milton T.

“Emily is exceptional at responding to my unique needs every time I see her. Too many times I have been to massage therapists who treat my body as a routine practice rather than an individual. Emily truly listens to my body complaints and sensitivities and caters her practice to specifically treat my needs on that individual day. I am definitely a repeat customer!”
-Rachel S.

​”Emily took the time to ask me about what was going on with my body and listened to what I was looking to get out of the visit. Having hours on Sunday is great for someone that is busy all week. It was very relaxing. Emily even took the time after to give me some body stress relievers and hints to do during the day. I would recommend going for an appointment.”

​”Emily is so attentive to my personal needs, and really looks at the whole picture of my body. Something I love about her is that at the end of the massage, she will explain to you which muscles were tight and why she thinks they may have been tight. This is so helpful for understanding  my own body, and shows that she strives to create long-term solutions for my tight muscles, not just relieving them in the moment”
​-Andrea L.

“Emily is just the kind of massage therapist you would hope to find. Her approach is stupendous. After my first experience with her, I realized I hadn’t felt that good in several years. She worked the areas of my body that desperately needed attention, and it paid off with the reward of such deep comfort and reduced pain. Most important, to me, is the person behind the work. Emily has the kind of personality you dream of getting in a therapist when you make that decision to see one. She listens intently; she cares about what you want and how you respond to her. As a client, I’m looking for a quality person that can do quality work; you don’t always manage to find both in the same therapist. You do with Emily.”
-Dale S.
