Emily Aalona - L.M.P.
Everest College, 2010

Emily has seven years of experience in massage therapy. After 3 years working in mental health, she found myself burnt out and seeking work that was better for her well being, and also allowed her to help others. She found massage, and it turned out to be her passion.

She has worked in many areas of massage, including spa, general practice and treatment, but her favorite is treatment and injury massage. It has kept things interesting with every patient!

She completed massage school at Everest College, and have since been to many different continuing education classes which have expanded her knowledge of different techniques specific to areas of the body, such as shoulder, neck, knee and low back. She has also taken classes on different kinds of massage, like prenatal, ligament work, energy work, trigger point therapy, structural integration, myofacial release, lymph drainage, stretching techniques and so on.

Her style is usually in the deep tissue and treatment genre, but she can also give a lighter massage if necessary. She is well versed in injury work, whether it be from a specific event, or repetitive motions over time that cause pain and postural issues.

She loves what she does because she is always learning, always perfecting technique, and loves to see her patients improve and reduce pain.

When Emily is not massaging, she is hanging out with all her boys. A husband, two sons (Samson and Zane), two male cats, and a male dog. They all treat her like a queen!
