Amber | Studio Manager
Master Ashiatsu Practitioner
A good friend once described me as naturally inquisitive. Following curiosity and in an effort to extend my career + work in a more sustainable way, I found Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage, a modality that most aren’t aware exists. I instantly knew that this is what I would offer to my clients. The pressure that I can sustain is unmatched and the fluid movement allows for better body mechanics. It’s a win for both myself and the client!
My passion lies in health and wellness and I love sharing my gift as a massage therapist to help others continue to stay active in their own life.

Emily first started her career in the horse industry, while working within that community for over 20 years she has performed body work on horses of all disciplines, and soon shifted that focus over to people. She attended massage school in South Florida and has since been a licensed therapist for over 10 years. Now solely focusing on massage body work of the human variety it allows her to have time for her other passions which are olympic style weightlifting, traveling, yoga, hiking, and camping with her dog Iris. This career shift has allowed for Emily to find her niche in working with athletes. While Athletes are only a fraction of clients Emily sees, she also works with prenatal clients and those recovering from injuries as well as surgeries. Emily has a knack for reading the body and finding the spots that need body work the most. This allows her clients to receive the massage that’s best suited for them and building that relationship between client and therapist.

Trigger Point Specialist
Gary has been working in the massage industry since 2009. Having spent many years working in the physically demanding catering industry, he was transformed by the relief that therapeutic, deep massage provided. The combination of pain relief, and a renewed ability to physically move through a full range of motion was the catalyst that led him to become a licensed massage therapist. Being able to identify and treat someone’s discomfort, and feel the tissue start to change in session is quite possibly one of the most rewarding things about his work. His style uses a combination of trigger point techniques, strong deep tissue massage, assisted stretching as well as the use of cupping as an additional tool to release tight muscles and restrictions in the body. With every session, he will customize bodywork to each client’s needs for treatment. Gary lives just outside of Phoenixville with his lovely wife and fur babies.

John Barnes MFR Therapist
Tammy has been in the health and wellness industry for over 30 years. She believes physical fitness and massage go hand in hand. As a licensed massage therapist for almost 20 years, her specialty/passion is Myofascial Release. She was blown away at her first certification course with John Barnes, (founder of myofascial release) and knew immediately that this type of corrective therapy was something she wanted to do. Trauma to our connective tissue (fascia) comes in many forms- falls, injuries, and even emotional trauma. Myofascial release allows our fascia to correct itself, relieving the pressure off our internal organs, and muscles. Tammy has gone on to take additional myofascial courses in Sedona, Denver and even to work directly with John in his Paoli office. Tammy also offers Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Trigger Point, Gua Sha and Reflexology. She has 2 fur babies (Buddy and Angel), loves working out, crafts, and traveling

LMT, MFR Therapist
Chris is an LMT that specializes in clinical massage, sports massage, and lymphatic drainage. He received his B.S. in Exercise Science before his training as an LMT, and now has just shy of 5 years of clinical experience. Through these experiences/schooling, he has developed into a therapist that is adept at assessing and treating a variety of clinical complaints. He is able to figure out the root cause of issues by finding dysfunctions that have caused an issue or could lead to one in the future. He prioritizes preventative care, but he also works to reduce lymphedema or swelling in the case of an injury or surgery. He also works with local sports teams to do tissue work for pre and post-event on the day of or days leading up to/after an event. He is a strong believer that massage therapy can play a vital role in both preventing and rehabbing from injuries.

LMT, Thai Therapist
Michelle is a Licensed Massage Therapist with over 7 years of experience. A lifelong interest in health and wellness and an undergrad at Penn State studying Biobehavioral Health led her to a career in bodywork. She has worked in spas, gyms, wellness centers and chiropractic offices and credits these various settings for her unique style of therapeutic massage. These customized therapeutic sessions are tailored to the ever-changing needs of each client. One can expect focused work on problem areas, range of motion and stretching, consistent, firm pressure and a whole body approach to work on supplementary areas of tension that may be undetected. She believes that when deep states of relaxation are reached in a session, our bodies, minds and many systems of the body can have a chance to balance and be supported. Working closely with clients to help them achieve goals, decrease pain, reduce stress and feel better in their bodies is what drives Michelle as a therapist.
