Emma Zuo, MA 61425711
Modalities: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Tui Na, Shiatsu, Prenatal, Craniosacral, Cupping, & Hot stones
I have developed my skills in a wide range of massage techniques. My unique approach combines the principles of these modalities to create a customized and effective treatment plan for each of my clients, addressing their specific needs and promoting profound relaxation and rejuvenation.
For clients struggling with chronic pain, tension, or musculoskeletal imbalances, my expertise in trigger point and deep tissue massage allows me to target deep-seated muscle knots and release tension, facilitating improved mobility and overall wellbeing. I am also well-versed in the ancient Chinese healing practices of tui na and shiatsu, which focus on restoring the body's energy flow, promoting balance, and enhancing the body's natural ability to heal itself.
Additionally, I offer cranial sacral therapy, a gentle yet powerful technique that addresses the subtle rhythms of cerebrospinal fluid, promoting deep relaxation and alleviating stress.

Nathan Bramel, MA 61014740
Modalities: Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Sports Massage, Injury Treatment, Post-Surgery Massage, Cupping, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release
I see massage as an art form and a tool that gives people freedom in their own bodies. People nowadays are often disconnected from themselves, either from stress, work or just a lack of understanding. My work focuses on reintegrating clients to their bodies, hopefully helping to create lasting change.
I have found when a client begins their health journey a feeling of empowerment is fostered, and with it a collaborative effort between client and myself is born. I am here to aid, encourage, and care for you along your journey for a better self. I will do my best to create a calming and safe space, and even when the work can be intense or uncomfortable, we can always laugh through
I’m a very patient, caring, and intuitive person. I am focused on my work and I love what I do. When I’m not massaging, you can find me outside with my puppy, cooking delightful and complex creations, and playing games with friends.

Molly Simpson, MA 60243571
Modalities: Deep tissue, Swedish/Spa/Relaxation, Hot Stone, Intraoral, Pregnancy and Postnatal, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Techniques, Injury Treatment, Sports Massage.
What makes my massage unique:
For me, bodywork is all about balance. Blending the luxury and indulgence of 5-star spas with the nuance and technical finesse of clinical work, as well as a bachelors in Somatic Psychology, I've developed a unique style of massage that is structurally-oriented, analytical and experimental at times, and ultimately intuitive, curious, and relaxing. Each session is truly tailored to how you are experiencing your body in that moment and I strive to hold space for immediate rest and recovery with an eye on long-term healing. While I happily do deep tissue and employ heavy pressure when needed, I do not believe in treating pain with more pain; instead, I combine a wide variety of techniques (including myofascial, neuromuscular, and passive and active movement) to tune into and attend to the signals your body is giving to gently unravel your unique patterns of pain and discomfort, leaving you feeling grounded and at-ease in your body.
