Praise for my one-on-one sessions:
“After injuring myself in a fall and while still in a great deal of pain from a badly sprained foot and lower leg, I sought out Emily and her healing touch and energy. Without her help I’m sure now, one month later, I would still be unable to walk without crutches. The traditional medical approach would have probably been to schedule me for surgery. It is hard for me to express my gratitude to Emily in just a few words. Emily, you are a gifted healer. May God bless you!” ~Carole, accountant
“An attentive and attuned practitioner, Emily worked on my neck and shoulder area and not only decreased my pain level in an area of chronic injury, she almost immediately increased my range of motion! From one dancer to another, she has a wonderful understanding of maintenance, longevity and safe practices and is generous with each client, providing them with a personal assessment and customized care. She is wonderful!” ~Kimberly, dancer
