Healing Lotus Massage

Emily Nelson, Licensed Massage Therapist


Welcome to Healing Lotus Massage!

I am a licensed massage therapist and have been working in the Des Moines area since 2012. My main focus is Sports Massage, Rebalancing and Pulsing, Neuromusclar Therapy (trigger point work), Lymphatic Drainage, Reflexology, Thai Foot Massage, and Scalp Massage. I am a certified Tai Chi instructor and have been practicing Tai Chi for 14 years. Like massage, Tai Chi has many health benefits that can greatly improved ones daily lifestyle. 

I would say my business exists where Sports massage and energy work meet. By blending specific stretches with relaxation techniques, clients can recover in a peaceful environment. Recovery work can be a truly healing experience. There is an internal as well as external component to our lives and massage can help remind us of that. I strive to bring joy and balance into my practice by blending my passion for massage, martial arts, and making environmentally conscious skin care products.

I put my creativity to use by building a range of different massage services. No two people are alike and I take that into consideration. I believe feedback can be a helpful tool to success. I've put that same creativity to use by designing, handcrafting, and building a vegan skin care line called Lotus Box. I've been making soap for over 15 years and I very much enjoy finding new scent combinations and ingredients to use. I have also learned how to make various scrubs, balms, bath bombs, body oils, and more. I've gained an understanding of essential oils that I put into my massage practice. I continue to build upon that knowledge and love being able to share my essential oil blends with clients.
