taking comfort in your body is healthcare
In awe of the body's ability to heal, Emily began her career in manual therapy after an injury in 2007. While receiving a massage a few years later, Emily experienced that healthcare can be more than fixing a problem; it can acknowledge and promote with is right with the body. The ability to help people appreciate their body had a profound effect on Emily's career direction.
Emily completed the 1,000 Hour Extended Massage Therapy program at the Cortiva Institute in Seattle in 2011. Coursework focused on extensive training in injury treatment modalities including myofascial massage, orthopedic massage, structural bodywork and neuromuscular facilitation. Emily's interest in the therapeutic value of touch led her to complete a case study on the effect of relaxation focused massage therapy on a client with diagnosed TMJ dysfunction.
With the passion to bring comfort into people's everyday lives and to offer healthcare as a rewarding experience, Emily open E. Ruth Wellness Massage in 2012, in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. After a rewarding three years, Emily relocated her practice to the beautiful downtown Edmonds in early 2015. Emily is thrilled to be a part of the Edmonds community and looks forward to growing her practice with the local residents and businesses.
