Stay Healthy and Balanced at InnerSource

By Jake Levin

Emily Walter firmly believes that our bodies possess the innate knowledge to keep us healthy and balanced.

Since 2015, she's been helping the body get its message across at InnerSource Massage and Bodywork in Burlington, Vt., the culmination of nearly two decades of studying holistic healing methods.

Walter first became interested in holistic health in the mid-'90s, when she was studying to become a home birth midwife. Following the birth of her own daughter, she transitioned to becoming a health coach. Walter graduated from the Touchstone School of Healing Arts in June 2008 and became nationally certified in August of that year, with additional studies in perinatal massage and infant massage. She began working at a holistic health center for the next six years or so, expanding her interests to include nutrition and lifestyle coaching before finally going out on her own and create InnerSource.

"Sunny and warm, my studio provides the perfect atmosphere for taking time to slow down," Walter said.

Located just over the train tracks from Perkins Pier, InnerSource is within the Karma Birdhouse, a charming old mill building home to several other entrepreneurs, Walter said. Many of her clients enjoy an afternoon walk by the lake to a cup of tea after their sessions.

Walter loves to learn, and as such, she's always adding new techniques to benefit her clients at InnerSource. She takes continuing education classes at The Swedish Institute in New York City, which is America's first accredited school of massage and acupuncture.

"I also love meeting regularly with other bodyworkers in the area and sharing experiences and techniques in order to broaden my skill set," Walter said. "Most importantly, I look at each bodywork session as an opportunity to learn. When we stop to listen and feel with intention, we can learn so much about each other."

Walter approaches each session with her clients with care, intention and focus. She offers no "cookie cutter" massage, but rather caters to the individual needs of each client.

"I offer integrated therapeutic bodywork which means I draw from many modalities to bring about relaxation and healing," Walter said. "I not only utilize different bodywork techniques, but bring in aromatherapy, sound healing, heat, energy work and herbal therapies to create a very special and unique experience. I truly love what I do and my clients feel that through my service to them."
