Hi there, my name is Emily! I moved to Kalamazoo from Golden (Denver), Colorado in the summer of 2017. My husband and I wanted a change of pace with a smaller city, more affordable housing, and a new environment (we love the trees here)!  


I have created a very professional and quiet office in my home.  Every massage is customized to my clients’ wants and needs, where I combine different modalities to best help them.  Self-care is very important to me, and I educate my clients on stretches that are tailored to improve range of motion and help alleviate pain. 

Why “The Leaning Tree”?

The tree symbolizes the body and how daily variables and stresses of life change the way it stands. When the body leans it can cause pain and tight muscles, along with imbalance. Here at The Leaning Tree Massage you will receive integrated treatments to help ease pain and discomfort, as well as balance your posture!

The street sign for Eventide is hidden quite a bit…if you miss it you can turn at the next street, loop around and get to Eventide from the east!

Coming from Milham:

  • If you’re coming north on 12th Street from Milham, look for the second Foxwood complex on the right, then next you will see Moonlite Avenue. The following street is at Eventide (turn right) where there is a bus stop sign. Eventide is 1.3 miles from the roundabout at Milham. I am the 6th house on the right (teal with white trim).

Coming from Parkview:

  • If you’re coming south on 12th Street from Parkview, look for the Rosewood complex on the left, then you will see the street sign for Starlite Avenue (I turn my blinker on here). There are only 2 houses between Starlite and Eventide, so your left turn is immediately after seeing the Starlite street sign. Eventide is .9 miles from Parkview. I am the 6th house on the right (teal with white trim).
