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.  Embody Healing Center is an open floor plan.  Most people are surprised in their first session or class, because they have never experienced anything like Embody.  

Working with Ashley and Michael will quickly draw you to one single question, do I want to change? Am I ready to give up old movement patterns that have led to limitations in my body? Am I ready to let go of my 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 causing injuries or further injuring ourselves after an accident. 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?





We offer a variety of classes of Movement and Meditation.

Human Functional Movement Class (TU 11:15am, TH 9am)

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.

    Movement Class (M/W/F 11:15 am;  TU 9am)

    We offer Energetic Healing with Michael and Physical Therapy with Ashley.

    Energetic Healing

    Session will include Reiki, Reconnective healing, regression therapy and Mantra Mediation techniques to address the current state of your energetic system.  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 session will ground and balance your energetic system, allowing your nervous system to relax and reboot. 

    Practitioner: Michael Nardi

    45 min apt,  Call to schedule Monday-Friday 9am-12pm


    Physical Therapy

    Session will include pre-hab, rehab, mobility, stability, balance and strengthening exercises to address your injury and your whole body system.  Manual therapy and Pilates Machines will be replaced with 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
