Emily is a holistic bodyworker specializing in Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Thaiatsu and Thai Massage. She chose these modalities because they are each based firmly in cultures and principles that view the person as a whole. The mind, the emotions, the soul and the body are all parts of an inseparable and intricately balanced whole person. The primary aim of each of these modalities is to bring each person closer to balance.
Emily is a dedicated Yogini and Mantra Singer. She has practiced Iyengar Yoga for 18 years, and Kundalini Yoga for 4 years. Through these studies she continually reaches deep self-knowledge, heartfelt compassion for humanity, and grateful awe for the power of vibration. She is in a constant state of experiential understanding of the trifecta that is the sound current: Sphota – transcendental sound, Nāda – supersonic sound, and Dhvani – sound that is heard by the human ear. Emily shares mantra and sacred song with unbridled joy and appreciation. Her performances are a devotional practice in action. Her melodies and voice carry the sound current to invoke and awaken the divine qualities latent within the heart of humanity.
