Emelia received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Simmons College in Boston, MA, and since that time she has never stopped learning.
Her post grad work began at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where she specialized in Breast Cancer rehabilitation. When she transitioned to outpatient orthopedic therapy, she was fortunate to train with Igor Burdenko to learn first hand the Burdenko method of aquatic therapy. After moving to Vermont in 2009, she extended her range of therapeutic skills to include Myofascial Release in the John Barnes Method, which she has employed to successfully treat the most challenging rehab cases. Emelia also has an area of specialty in Lyme Disease rehabilitation, supporting the vast need here in Vermont. Recently, Emelia has been trained in Craniosacral Therapy, which has proven to be extremely effective for clients with long term pain and disease.
Her holistic approach to patient health empowers her clients to reach their goals through shared ownership of their wellness and plan of care. Emelia loves to cook (and eat!), has recently returned to skiing with her body and pride intact, and can’t wait for the return of gardening season! She also recently married her best friend, Tony.
Please contact Emelia if you are looking for a specialist in orthopedics, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, breast cancer reconstructive therapy, or Lyme Disease rehab.
