Biography

Graduated from the University of Delaware with a masters in physical therapy. A versatile physical therapist, Emily has been working in this career that she loves for more than 20 years. Emily has worked for OHSU and the Legacy system for years. Working largely with trauma patients, Emily learned early that everything in the body is connected. What happens to one part affects the others holistically. Postural alignment, core stability, and free breath support lead to less pain and improved function. After a few more years working mostly with a chronic pain population, she started using John Barnes Myofascial Release bodywork, in combination with her other skills, with great success. Emily happily endorses this hands-on, gentle technique with lasting results for the treatment of pain from trauma (emotional and physical), inflammatory responses, and/ or for surgical restrictions. Visit the John Barnes Myofascial Release website for more information this type of bodywork. http://www.myofascialrelease.com Emily also specializes in balance and vestibular dysfunctions. After years spent with neurologically involved clients, she has an excellent “eye” for movement and coordination problems, as well as good facilitation skills to promote much improved motor control. These motor control skills translate to both the client with rotator cuff problems as well as those with back pain or sprained ankles. Shirley Sahrmann’s (PhD, PT, FAPTA) works on Movement Impairment Syndromes also make up a large part of her clinical treatment philosophy and techniques. Yoga has also been instrumental in her treatment method, promoting an unhurried, relaxed style and patient techniques with a focus on feeling and breathing to help treat all diagnoses. With two kids, her husband, and a herding dog, Emily spends her free time outdoors as much as she can appreciating the lifestyle Portland has to offer
