"I first met Emma as a shy rookie in the back of her yoga class. Emma has a very welcoming and calming nature and immediately put me at ease, allowing me to focus on my practice and meditation. Her smile and manner are genuine and uplifting. As a first time patron of both acupuncture and reiki, I found that Emma explained the process and the benefits very clearly making the experience comfortable and beneficial. I also sought Emma’s services to better my nutritional plan. She was sure to get a full view of my health concerns and lifestyle in order to offer me a complete review, drawing connections I had not previously seen. I found Emma to be very knowledgeable, thorough and encouraging in assisting me by offering tips and solutions."
"I had a great experience working with Emma at Present Moment’s Yoga Retreat Center this winter. She was eager to share her knowledge, and answer questions. I appreciated that she had both a Western Medical and Traditional Chinese Medical background and approach to working with me as a patient. It was nice to finally get a chance to understand more about how acupuncture and herbs work! She was generous with her time and even sent me home with some free home remedies, like my first gua sha tool! I felt really comfortable discussing all my women’s health, dietary needs, and questions. The treatment was soothing, with acupuncture, nutritional counseling and some body work all mixed in and I noticed the effects of the acupuncture on my sugar cravings right away!!
"I can’t speak highly enough of Emma’s acupuncture treatments. I was suffering from serious TMJ and lockjaw when I reached out to Emma. There were times when I couldn’t eat because my jaw would lock up and biting guards weren’t helping at all. Emma’s treatments helped seriously reduce and eventually eliminate my jaw pain. I was in disbelief the first few mornings waking up without feeling any pain after having received treatments the night before! Not having tried acupuncture before, Emma was extremely kind and welcoming. She gave me explanations beforehand of why she would put the needles in certain places. Now I am a huge advocate for acupuncture and I am extremely grateful for Emma’s treatments."
"Emma has a gift for making women feel comfortable and at home in their bodies. She is a great listener. Through her health coaching, I was able to learn about my body, the Chinese medicine perspective on healing, and how to take care of myself during stressful times. I was scared of the needles, but it didn’t hurt at all, and I actually fell asleep! I always feel rejuvenated and restored after her treatments. Emma had a lot to share about how to regulate hormones, move energy, and take care of my mental and spiritual health. I am grateful for her support and our time together."
"Emma has a soft and sweet presence in the Yoga studio. Each of her sessions are crafted with care and intention while embracing and being fully authentic to the present moment. Emma's guided meditations, especially in final shavasana, provide an easy and most peaceful portal to bliss. My only complaint about Emma is that she doesn't live in Seattle! 🙂 "
"Emma naturally holds beautiful space in a session. Her combined knowledge of energy work through acupuncture and her connection with Reiki, allowed for me to deeply relax, release blocks and feel refreshed. Highly recommended!"
