CranioSacral Therapy is a subtle, yet powerful, technique that assists in the rebalancing of the Nervous System. Emily loves this work because of how vast the results can be, and how unique each session is for every client. Whether working with chronic issues, acute symptoms, or anxiety/depression/emotional imbalances, this form of work can be life-changing. To be able to give that gift to a client is truly priceless, and the magic of each session keeps Emily fascinated with the process.
Reiki is a form of energy work that can access and clear many layers of the system. Emily loves using Reiki In conjunction with other modalities, and finds that it often deepens the overall experience and results for her clients. Many have told her that she has some of the “hottest” Reiki hands they’ve experienced, reflecting the power with which Emily believes this practice can bring. She is honored to be a vessel through which to transmit such sacred, and revered, healing touch.
Massage Therapy sessions with Emily are not your typical “deep tissue” or “fluff & buff” type of experience. She combines her insights from CranioSacral and Reiki, as well as intuitive guidance, to create a soothing, truly restorative experience. Her intention is to work not only with your muscles, but also with your Nervous System, to encourage a parasympathetic experience for true healing. Pressure will be adjusted to your needs, and will never be so deep that you experience pain.
Every session incorporates essential oils, if desired, as well as music and palo santo. Emily uses doTERRa oils, which are therapeutic grade oils, safe for topical and internal use.
