About Emily Ruth Lovelett

Emily Ruth Lovelett

In awe of the body’s amazing ability to heal, Emily began her career in manual therapy after an injury in 2007. It was while receiving a massage in 2010 when Emily experienced how healthcare can be more than fixing a problem; it can promote and acknowledge what is right with the body. The ability to help people feel more comfortable and appreciate their body had a profound effect on Emily’s career direction.

Emily completed the 1,000 Hour Extended Massage Therapy program at the Cortiva Institute, Seattle in 2011. Coursework focused on extensive training in injury treatment modalities, including myofasical massage, orthopedic massage, structural bodywork and neuromuscular facilitation. Emily’s interest in the therapeutic value of touch led her to complete a case study on the effect of relaxation focused massage therapy on a client with diagnosed TMJ disorder.

With the passion to bring comfort into people’s everyday lives and to offer healthcare as a rewarding experience, Emily opened E. Ruth Wellness Massage in 2012, in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. After a rewarding three years, Emily relocated her practice to the beautiful downtown Edmonds in early 2015. Emily is thrilled to have E. Ruth part of the Edmonds community and looks forward to growing her practice with the local residents and businesses.

Emily is always exploring ways to make massage therapy more accessible to the community. Please contact Emily to discuss the possibility of bringing massage therapy to a fundraising event, assisted living community or senior center, or to other underserved populations.
