About Emily

Emily Gatewood is a Massage Therapist in Montpelier VTI attended the StillPoint School of Massage in Greenfield, MA. I have over 20 years of experience in professional practice in the states of Massachusetts and Vermont.  I became Nationally Certified in 2003.


I have completed many specialized trainings over the years, including Sports Massage Therapy, NeuroMuscular therapy, Myofascial Release, postural assessment,  Thai Yoga Massage, and Lomi Lomi massage.


I have specific training to work with chronic cervical pain, for headaches, whiplash injury, forward head posture and other chronic pain patterns.


I studied Anatomy Trains® with Tom Myers, starting in 2003, whose theories on fascia and connective tissue were ahead of their time. I have worked in chiropractic and osteopathic doctors clinics, and have worked in conjunction with other healthcare practitioners, such as acupuncturists and Feldenkrais® practitioners at WellSpace in Cambridge, MA, and with acupuncturists at Breathing Light in Montpelier, VT.


I have experience working in day spa and resort spa settings offering a variety of massage modalities and body treatments.  I have traveled with my table to practice in-home massage and on-site chair massage for large corporations in Boston. I have been self-employed at my studio space in Montpelier since 2009.


I joyfully offer pre- and post-natal massage. I use the bodyCushion™ positioning system, which is the best support system on the market for allowing a pregnant woman to lie face down for the duration of her pregnancy or provide side-lying support.


I have been practicing pregnancy massage since 1999, but it has been since the birth of my own two children that I have deeper connection with and love of this work. I have experienced both cesarean and VBac births with my own children.


I am a licensed and NCBTMB certified massage therapist, a Stott Pilates™ method certified instructor, and an RYT-200 yoga instructor.

Emily lives in Central Vermont with her husband and two spirited children where she organic gardens, raises chickens and makes awesome jam.
