Evolve Bodywork is the private practice of
Lydia Emery CMT, MLD-C
Helping clients for over 16 years with specializations in Pillossage, Neuromuscular Cupping, Trigger Point work and PNF Stretching. My style utilizes a body-friendly approach to access and release the deeper, more stubborn layers of tissue. I don’t buy into the “no pain, no gain” philosophy. Instead, I will work with your nervous system in order to facilitate communication between the mind and muscles. Each massage is customized to address your specific concerns. Together we will discuss your needs as well as come up with a result-oriented plan.
Your aches and pains advance. Your goals shift. Science progresses, and so should your bodywork.
60 minute therapeutic massage $133.00
Restore is suited for monthly, regular maintenance care and allots enough time one area of focus.
90 minute therapeutic massage
Whether your goal is pain relief, relaxation or just the perfect blend of both. Repair is geared to help with chronic pain and tension issues, to rehab muscles, improve circulation, and increase range of motion.
120 minute therapeutic massage
A unique session created to address the muscles that run along the side of the body as well as what you would expect in a 60 or 90 minute massage. During your two-hour session you will be Supine (face up) Side-lying (on each side) and Prone (face down).
A unique experience customized for your treatment goals along with your preferences. All services may include some combination of:
Concentrated pressure along with a slower speed to encourage the fascia, muscles and tendons to relax and realign.
An advanced, gentle form of assisted stretching. Involving both stretching and contracting (activation) of the muscle group being targeted.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) Stretching
A calming, thermal modality that uses heat and weight to help accelerate healing, rehabilitation, and improve quality of life for clients with persistent pain, emotional distress, or those who may prefer to remain dressed during their session.
An ancient therapy where special cups are placed on the skin to create an opposing pressure through localized suction. This sensation causes your pain receptors to become distracted and helps to assist in the unlocking of persistent pain patterns.
Smooth, heated stones applied to ease muscles stiffness, melt away tension along with promoting your body’s relaxation response.
Percussion Massage Therapy Gun
Gentle, but firm vibration therapy. Frequency adjusted according to the purpose: for warming up tissues, soreness/tightness relief, or muscle activation.
Localized Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
A gentle manual technique, based on the four basic Vodder strokes, to help promote the movement of lymphatic fluid. Typically to reduce swelling in acute sprain or strain, beneficial for autoimmune disorders. * This is a limited add on to your massage service and not intended for Post-Op plastic surgery recovery. *

She discussed my concerns and problem areas and then set expectations for the session. I have been receiving massage for over ten years and she stands out. I could not recommend her more highly.
