The Flowbird Vision

Integrity, Compassion, Equity, Harmony

All beings have the innate ability to heal. My mission is to help my clients step into this power for the benefit of all beings.

My vision for the Flowbird Practice is to bring more love and light into this world by tending to the needs of my local community and anyone across the world who wants to connect. I strive to be a healing conduit, living by the tenets of "think globally, act locally" and seek to contribute to the betterment of all humankind.

Meet Emilia Friedberg

MA, OTR/L, CLT-LANA, RYT, Reiki Master

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.
