I think Emma Holder is a great Sports Massage therapist. She comes from an athletic background which allows her insight into understanding sports injuries. A massage therapist with the strength and stamina to get deep into the injured area is hard to find. I highly recommend her for a quicker recovery.-

After an intense day of carrying cabinets and counters up three flights of stairs, I needed a massage the next day. It made me feel brand new! If money was no object, I’d do this once a week.

Emma is uniquely able to respond to my specific needs as a performing musician. No two massages are the same enabling her to focus on my changing concerns. Not only does she address current problem areas, but I am convinced that her work has enabled me to avoid injury in a job that is very stressful on my body.

Training for my first marathon involved going to Emma for Sports massage on a regular basis. Not only was it a big part of my preparation, but after the marathon, Emma’s massage was a crucial part of my recovery and return to distance running. I’ve subsequently done two marathons and have relied on Emma to get me safely through without injury and feeling strong! I wouldn’t run a marathon without her support!
