The best massage I have had in the Greater Portland area.

“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!”

Both her and her work are extraordinary!

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!

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 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 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!” E.G.
