   It is such a gift to be able to live your dream. Turning Leaf Massage is the product of a dream that was born shortly after my graduation from the Clinic Massage Institute of Geneseo in 1997. My life has always centered around health, healing and re-discovery.


   I spent 15 years working in labor and delivery  and I am an experienced  "birthing coach" or doula. I opened Turning Leaf in 2010.  It is my passion to help people discover the relaxation and restoration that massage can provide.  I have a particular interest in providing massages for couples, a process that can help couples build stronger bonds in their relationships by rekindling the spark that first brought them together.

   I believe much of our stress today stems from our lack of time and space for reflection and relaxation. The world has become far too busy, and today’s frenetic pace has taken a toll on us mentally, physically and relationally. Relationships need time and space together to breathe, grow and thrive. I have created a tranquil atmosphere in my studio where people can come in and leave their cares at the door. They leave here relaxed, centered and more ready to tackle whatever challenges they may face. Let Turning Leaf Massage be your first step towards discovering a more relaxed, restored and invigorated YOU!

I graduated from Midwest Technical Institute in Moline, Illinois in 2019.  I started my Nail Technician journey at Top Ten Nails & Hair in Moline, where I worked for two years.              

  “Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved the art of making people feel beautiful, as well as relaxed.  My goal in life is to always represent the inward significance of things by their outward appearance.  I truly believe that expressing yourself is a key part to life, and nails is a great ways to do that.”                              Emma specializes in gel nails/extensions along with pedicures.  She is so excited to meet new clients and build her business at Turning Leaf.  Book now to bring out the inner you!
