Emily Landry is a graduate of the Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences Massage Therapy program, a New York State licensed massage therapist, and a TOLABOR-trained doula committed to supporting people across the spectrum of pregnancy. She has also completed training through the Inwood House volunteer doula program to support teenage women giving birth. She brings her doula sensibilities to each massage session, including an emphasis on informed consent and a belief that each patient is capable of making the best choices for their own health and wellness.
She especially loves working with clients coming in for their first massage, and working with community organizers, activisits, and healers; folks from queer and trans communities; and anyone who has ever wondered if their body would be ok on a massage table. Her goal is always to help her clients feel more at home in their own bodies, and to support integrated personal wellness. In her clinical training at Swedish Institute, Emily has worked with ER staff at Mt. Sinai hospital, student athletes at NYU, and residents of the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge, as well as clients recovering from musculoskeletal injuries and chronic autoimmune illnesses.
Emily has lived all over the midwest and southern US – most recently Tulsa, OK – and has made her home in Brooklyn for over five years. She has been involved in social justice organizations for more than 10 years, including Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, Amnesty International, Community Action Project – Tulsa County, and the Tulsa ecumenical social justice ministry UCM. Emily is excited to join Third Root in its commitment to health justice.
