Emma M. – RMT

I’ve always liked problem solving and understanding how things work. I find the interactions between the muscles, fascia, brain… fascinating; how an issue in the feet can create pain in the back, tension in the shoulder can trigger a headache, or stress can upset the stomach. 

My goal is to find and treat the root of the problem rather than just the symptoms, and get you back to living pain-free. You’re not you when you’re achy!
