Massage Therapy – Emily Chard, LMT, CSMS
My Massage Story: A family friend had introduced me to the sport of Cricket during 2005 and I became so engrossed that I would watch it all day long. One day there was a segment about ‘A day in the life of a Sports Physiotherapist’ and I remember thinking to myself how inspiring it would be to become part of a team, support the athletes and contribute to their journey. From that point onwards I was motivated to follow my passion and went on to obtain a Bachelors Degree in Sports Therapy and achieved my LMT license a few years later. I have recently gained my CrossFunction Sports Massage Specialist (CSMS) certification and work with the Seattle Seawolves Rugby Team as their Massage Therapist.
What you can expect from working with me: My Massage style is intentional, result-driven, and evidence-based. I specialize in Deep tissue and Sports Massage techniques including; Myofascial Release, Orthopedic Cupping, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM), Kinesiology Taping, Compression Flossing, Percussion Therapy, Assisted Stretching, and Trigger Point Therapy.
My sessions begin with an assessment of your movement and a detailed treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. I aim for you to feel empowered by your body, by moving and participating in your sessions in order to gain an insight as to what we are treating and why.
