Heart Felt Touch


Paula Hubbard, L. Ac. 

Growing up in rural Appalachia, I learned the value of hard work, living off the land, and how all of life is connected. While living and traveling in Asia, I saw a different approach to life balance and became interested in a more holistic and balanced lifestyle. After returning to the US, I decided that I wanted to pursue further education in Integrative Medicine and Acupuncture. While studying and working with patients in school, I learned that I love helping people. Now, my goal is to help people of all means and walks of life heal and help them on their life’s path. 




Amanda Emminizer, LMT

Hello, I’m Amanda, LMT. I studied massage therapy at American Spirit Institute in Williamsburg, Virginia. I graduated in January 2015 and have been practicing massage ever since. 
Massage has always been a passion of mine since I was a young girl. I have photos of myself giving back massages to various family members before I was a teenager. Caring for people has always been near and dear to my heart. What brings me joy I having a client come to me and share their needs with me, and then leave with a smile on their face. My favorite type of massage to perform would be a medium pressure Swedish massage. I love creating an environment to have all your worries melt away while you’re in my care. If you want complete silence, I won’t say a word. If you need someone to talk to, I’m more than happy to be what you need. 
I’m the therapist for you if you...

  • Want a quiet space for your worries to melt away.
  • Have trouble spots and would like deep work.
  • Need a sports massage with stretching and deep work.
  • Are an expecting mother looking to relax.
  • Like to add hot stones or cupping to your session.
  • Enjoy special attention on your head, neck and shoulders.

I look forward to meeting you and discovering if I am a good fit for you. Remember, healing starts in the mind. Remind yourself that you are worth the time and investment! You can’t care for others if you don’t care for yourself; something I have to remind myself of often. Stay blessed!


Patricia Luna, LMT

Hi, I'm Patricia! I graduated from Central Maryland School of Massage and fell in love with the human body and the

benefits of healing therapeutic touch.
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in Virginia and a Registered Massage Practitioner in Maryland. I use a combination of different massage types and styles during a session tailored for your body’s needs that day. I am trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Prenatal, Sports, Injury, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Acupressure, Hot Stone, Trigger Point and Assisted Stretch Therapy.
A client once told me, “The human body is like an amazing vehicle, and we have to treat it the best way we can to get all the mileage out of it possible. It’s the only body we get in this lifetime.”
Whether you need help with pain management, chronic pain, injury recovery, or simply want to relax and de-stress, take time for your body. Book an appointment!

Amy Short, LMT

I truly enjoy my work! I received my license to offer Massage Therapy in November of 2001 after graduating from Virginia Academy of Massage in Newport News. I have completed continuing education courses in medical massage, including:
Whitney Lowe's Orthopedic Massage Clinics, Lymph Drainage Massage, Neuromuscular, Therapy for Spine and Thorax, Pregnancy Massage, Myofascial Release for Upper Body. 

In my practice I use many of the techniques to complete a therapeutic massage session. Over the years I have learned that each person's differing needs can be met by using a variety of these massage techniques.

I love my work because it is a calm one on one environment and I gain great satisfaction knowing that I have the opportunity to make someone feel better both mentally and physically in such a hectic world.

I approach every massage as a puzzle to be solved. As we explore your life, each piece will fall into place. Curiously, that last piece is always elusive, and I love the ever-evolving dialogue of your body. It’s like a painting, where you can always find something you’d do a bit differently or an area to be improved upon. As a lover of art, I enjoy learning, creating, growing, and exploring. I approach therapeutic massage with that mindset and thoroughly enjoy the artistry of the human body. 

My top areas of expertise are neck and shoulders, followed closely by hips. 

My special skills: Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular, Deep Tissue, Hot Stones, Reflexology, Prenatal, Medical Massage

  • An athlete - sportsman, runner, lifter - athletic build with a highly active life

I am aiming for you to live pain-free. I will bring my best to you, each and every time, seeking to improve how your body feels, providing the routine work and maintenance that will establish your baseline for a healthy, strong, restored body. Your body tells the story of your life. I simply have to listen to what it’s saying.

Ginger Peer-Spencer, LMT and Owner

I love my work. Exploring the body and laying on hands to heal and restore is something that never ceases to amaze me. As similar as the overall makeup of our bodies may seem, they are each drastically different for a million different reasons and each person deserves the attentive care that seeks out and addresses their unique needs with purpose and precision. 

I have spent a considerable amount of time learning how emotions and trauma affect the body. I can tell when someone’s nervous system is functioning in overdrive and use that knowledge to help my clients discover ways to nudge their bodies toward moving in a more relaxed state. I cultivate a state of calm and comfort in my therapeutic approach and honor everybody with compassionate, trust-filled care. I understand that massage therapy reveals people’s vulnerabilities, stressors, anxieties, and pain. Acknowledging and honoring that experience is a critical piece of therapeutic support. You are safe with me. 

If you need to talk, I’m here. If you prefer silence, I’m here. If you are grieving, I’m here. If you are resting, I’m here. This is your time and your space. I will follow and honor your lead.

My deepest love is caring for people in later life stages, especially those who may not receive a healthy, compassionate touch, and may be experiencing loneliness, depression, anxiety, and pain. Providing any sense of relief that uplifts them physically, emotionally, and spiritually is something I hold sacred. 

You’re the client for me if you’re: 

  • Battling chronic stress and need help unwinding tension

  • Seeking medium pressure to help your entire body find a state of rest

  • Working through trauma or medical crises

  • Looking for compassionate touch that connects on physical, emotional and spiritual levels

  • Navigating later seasons of life, including hospice or terminal illness

  • In need of a therapist who can come to you (off-site care available)

The time we spend together is all about you. I will listen to you and to your body, tailoring your experience to align with what’s going on in your world, whether spoken or unspoken. I give my all, my best, every time. You are loved and you are not alone.
