Emily Ahmanson, LMT

Hi there- I’m Emily!

I have always been a nurturer, even from a young age. Massage has become another branch for me to express my compassion for people and find connection. I grew up in California and was first introduced to massage therapy when I was about 15 when my mom changed careers to practice massage. I often thought I could see myself following in her footsteps, and here I am!

I attended and graduated from a therapeutic and clinical based school, Mind Body Institute in Nashville, TN. After graduating in Nashville I worked at a busy, high-end day spa, allowing me to work with people from all walks of life, while growing as a therapist and honing my craft. I recently relocated to Fort Collins after visiting and falling in love with it a few years ago, and it has been nothing less than wonderful! I am so excited to find my place in the massage and wellness community in this beautiful place I now call home.

When it comes to my massage practice I love finding that balance between focused therapeutic work and relaxation massage. I enjoy incorporating some of the clinical tools I learned in school such as trigger point, neuromuscular, and myofascial therapies, as well as Swedish & relaxation techniques into my sessions. With that, I am continually intrigued by the mind body connection and how the breath plays a huge role in that. I find when a client is able to connect to their breath in a session it may allow for deeper relaxation and release. I truly work to listen to my clients needs, while also listening to their body, feeling what their muscles are reacting too. I strive to create connection and relaxation in each session, so my clients may have the best full body experience. I am so grateful to be a part of the team at Amara Massage Therapy and Wellness and am elated to continue growing my career in massage therapy!
