Embody Healing Center

about us

Ashley and Michael met in college building a house for Habitat for Humanity, and their partnership, love and respect has birthed two beautiful children and Embody Healing Center.  They are two opposite ends of the same pole, together they learn and teach through their experiences and are redefining healing.  

This starts with an open floor plan without the separation of individual treatment rooms. Most people are surprised in their first session or class, because they have never experienced anything like Embody.

The layout empowers you to take a part of your own healing and recognize that you are the most important factor in your healing process.  When you come to the realization that you are responsible for your own healing, it is an empowering moment.   

Working with Ashley and Michael will quickly draw you to one single question, do I want to change? Am I ready to give up the old patterns-beliefs that have led to limitations in my body and Life? Am I ready to let go of the story of how I came to be here?

We all struggle at times mentally, physically and emotionally.  When we stop and start to look at ourselves, we begin to see how we are impacting our injuries or problems in our life. Then a change occurs, we embrace all we are, and take personal ownership for our mind, body and emotions. The real learning begins.


Are you ready to MOVE and OPEN?




Physical Therapy

Session will include pre-hab, rehab, mobility, stability, balance and strengthening exercises to address your injury and your whole body system.  Ashley uses movement, loaded progressive stretching, neuromusculature re-education and movement patterns required to be a human, including squatting, hanging, crawling and swivels.  Tissues respond to the stimulus they are provided with; meaning that if tissues are provided with nourishing movements in the appropriate dosage and intensity, they adapt and become stronger, more mobile and more functional.  If they are provided with immobility, a fear of movement and compensatory methods of movement, the body will become weaker, less mobile and less functional.  

Practitioner: Ashley Nardi

45 min apt, Call to schedule, Mon-Thurs 7:30am-3pm, Friday 7:30am- 1:30pm

Human Functional Movement Class (Tuesdays 11:15am) 

Free for current patients

When our nervous system is highjacked, we have a flight or fight response.  We tend to be highly reactional, hypertense and irritated or we are sedated, unconscious of our decisions and inappropriately responsive.  The class will ground you back into your body, allowing your nervous system to relax and reboot. 

Class will focus on basic movement patterns including: hanging, squatting, waves, and swivels.  Learn foundational human movement patterns that are missed in our normal daily lives. Learn to become comfortable in movements fundamental to being a human being, while having fun and calming the nervous system down.

Japa Yoga Sessions

Michael utilizes a system of Mantra Meditation to guide you in the process of a Japa practice. Japa is the repeated uttering of a Divine name -mantra. The more you repeat, the more you build self-awareness. Learn to connect with your inner world, see how you interact with the world and master goal setting. 

"When we stop judging ourselves and accept ourselves ... we begin the path of unconditional love and true discernment."
