Jaimie Shrestha

Jaimie Shrestha | Certified Massage Therapist

Jaimie Shrestha is a Certified Massage Therapist and a graduate from CenterPoint Massage & Shiatsu Therapy School in St. Louis Park, MN. She is also a Certified Practitioner with American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia (AOBTA).

Jaimie got her start doing western therapeutic along with sports massage and teaching yoga but her love of Traditional Chinese Medicine and its benefits gradually brought her to Shiatsu. She believes that by combining the Eastern and Western modalities, you are able to get the best of both worlds when healing your body and mind.

Jaimie specializes in Therapeutic/Deep Tissue Massage, Shiatsu Therapy, Reiki and Hara Abdominal Massage as well as cupping and Gua Sha techniques.

When not doing bodywork, Jaimie teaches Shiatsu at CenterPoint School of Massage & Shiatsu. In her free time, she enjoys doing yoga, traveling, hiking and spending time with her husband and her cat, Mila. The Eden Prairie location of ChiroCenter is privileged to have her as a member of our health care team.

Andrew Milligan | Certified Massage Therapist

Andrew Milligan is a board-certified bodyworker who has been practicing for over fifteen years. He specializes in the John Barnes approach and is also trained in Pranic Healing and Shamanic Reiki.

As a practitioner specializing in the Myofascial Release Approach, Andrew utilizes a variety of techniques such as soft tissue mobilization, cross-hand stretching, unwinding, and rebounding to correct whole-body structural dysfunction.

Andrew believes that bodywork elegantly synthesizes these various disciplines into a whole that is both playful and profound. Having a deep reverence for the innate wisdom of the body, Andrew is committed to facilitating a sanctuary wherein each of his patients may begin to enter the great mystery that is the human body, releasing emotional traumas both ancient and recent, and transforming the conflict between psyche and corpus into playfulness and peace.

Andrew has been stealing the stage since the age of 9, culminating in a Bachelor of Fine Arts in theater and dance. Here he gained a deep awareness of emotional and psychological motivations manifested through action, behavior, and posture. He has also practiced nineteen years of movement arts exploration through ballet, modern dance, and the Afro-Brazilian martial art of capoeira, earning a visceral understanding of the structure and function of the human body.

When not engaged in the healing alchemy that is bodywork, Andrew can be found flipping and spinning in the capoeira roda, booking his next trip to some far-flung locale to sit at the feet of an indigenous shaman, or creating mad paleo masterpieces in the kitchen!

Emy Young | Certified Massage Therapist

Emy integrates all of these methods of healing into her bodywork sessions, relying heavily on Thai Massage techniques. She is a graduate of Saint Paul College Massage Therapy program and is currently pursuing her degree in Advanced Clinical Sports Massage.

Prior to Massage Therapy, Emy worked as a chef in Japanese restaurants. During this time, Emy built her yoga practice and went through Yoga Teacher Training. It was here she was introduced to Thai Massage. Having spent an entire weekend participating in a workshop dedicated to kindness and loving touch, Emy was flooded with joy and received many compliments of being “a natural” at bodywork. Since this training, Emy has been on a journey of self-healing and learning in order to facilitate the healing of others. The practice of yoga and giving and receiving bodywork has brought an abundance of love, kindness, and compassion for self and others to Emy’s life.

When not doing bodywork, you can find Emy at home reading a book snuggled up with her cats or biking around the Twin Cities. Emy is a mental health and sober advocate, working with people who are seeking lifestyle changes or battling addictions to help them plan out their way to success. She is starting a podcast based on sobriety with a fellow friend in recovery. In addition, Emy teaches yoga and creative movement at various circus and performance arts festivals in the Midwest. She loves to cook and dance (sometimes at the same time!) often with a hula-hoop and preferably in a group!
