I love to learn and hone new skills, get my hands dirty, my body tired and my soul shining. I am a student first, forever engaged in the expansion of my own consciousness and awareness, but I am also passionate about teaching others and sharing the wisdom that has been taught to me.
My broad set of professional skills and healing expertise is a product of my diverse passions. I have known that I wanted to be a healer since I was a teenager. I remember nerding out in science class, fascinated by earth sciences and the nuances of the human body.
I am currently a student of Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland, CA.
My free time is spent adventuring with my dog Maple, riding bicycles, flowing in aerial apparatuses, rock climbing, practicing herbalism, tending to my local flora and fauna, cooking and crafting.

“I’ve received Reiki from Emilia at different stages of my life for the past 7 years. My sessions with Emilia helped redirect my energy and accept myself and my body. During our Reiki session she would clean and restore the mis-aligned energy giving me information I could use as I began my healing journey. She helped me get clear what was blocked and where my attention needed focus - giving me direction during a very uncertain time.”
“Emilia excels at so many areas including energy healing, pilates, and acrobatics, and she intuitively pulls from all those teachings simultaneously. Emilia is so attuned to her students! I love her classes, they are soothing, juicy, and challenging, a perfect balance of stretch and strengthen. ”
"Energy work is something that oftentimes is misunderstood because many of us, especially men, struggle to see what is the effect or point of this work. To have another being, especially a person like Emilia, pay such caring attention to me and my energy field is a treasure and definitely worthwhile if you are curious about her offerings. I had never been exposed to reiki, energy work or anything of the sort before meeting Emilia. I decided to give it a try because I felt very safe, secure, and seen in her presence. Emilia is trustworthy because she attentively listens, is curious, and honestly speaks her heart and mind.”
“A session with Emilia is a very special thing. Emilia’s natural warmth, joy, openness and gentleness uniquely equip her for the role of energetic conduit. Her strength serves her physical purpose well yet never eclipses her calm sensitivity, giving her the ability to heal with equal integrity. As a result, her practice provides medicine not just for the body, but for the heart, mind and soul. I walked away from a lymphatic massage and reiki session with Emilia feeling lighter, clearer, and blissfully in balance, with the aura fostered fully tangible.”
“I had found myself at a rough patch in my life where I needed some extra support and I was able to find that within my session with Emilia. This was my first experience with reiki and it was something I didn't know I needed. Energy work is something I feel we are disengaged with these days and we all need a moment to be still. I would recommend it if you are curious or even if you have had treatments with other practitioners.”
“I did a nighttime session from a distance and felt wonderful afterwards. I slept well, and it really helped me move forward with a rejuvenated mindset and a sustained sense of connectivity to the larger universe, which is exactly what I was looking for. During my session, Emilia relieved some blockages and tension in my energetic being, and explained to me in illustrative detail what she found and did from her point of view - it was really cool to hear the descriptions and get a sense of all that is happening to our energetic bodies that I’m not often aware of!”
