Emily Ahmanson, LMT

Hi, I’m Emily!

I’m originally from the central coast of California. I graduated from the Mind Body Institute in Nashville, TN in 2021 and have been practicing massage therapy since. I relocated with my family to Fort Collins in 2022 and love calling it home!

I enjoy working slowly in a lighter-medium pressure range, with relaxation always being at the forefront of my work. My approach to massage is holistic and nurturing. I aim to provide a calming and caring environment that allows people to leave the hustle bustle of their everyday life and just be.

I am extremely passionate about the art of hot stone massage, and would love to create a relaxation experience to help you melt on the table. I also enjoy focusing on sore/problem areas, and I specialize in working on the scalp, face, neck, and upper body.

My massages are an opportunity to slow down, get out of your head and reconnect with what it feels like to be in your body. Whether you are looking to decompress and unwind, or looking to incorporate some gentle focus work into your relaxation experience, I’d love to have you on my table!

Client Review: “My husband got me a 60 minute custom massage here for my birthday. It was my first time at this place. The place is located right below the Mugs Old Town cafe—there are stairs and signage that is located between Choice City Butcher & Deli and Mugs Old Town cafe. I showed up a little early to fill out the form (asks for preferences and any health issues/concerns) and sign the waiver. The lady at the desk was really nice and asked if I would like any water while I waited. The massage itself was very relaxing and just what I needed! The [therapist], Emily, would occasionally ask if the pressure was ok or if I needed less/more pressure. The warm towel compress felt really nice! Afterwards, as I was checking out at the front desk the lady up front offered a free chapstick since I was a first time customer. Highly recommend!” – Cassandra B.
