Transformative Massage Experience in Englewood |  Rose Manual Therapy

Meet the Owner | Emily Rose Newton

Hi Em! Can you introduce yourself to our readers? Tell us your story leading up to starting ‘Rose Manual Therapy’.

  • My name is Emily Rose Newton. I moved to Denver 11 1/2 years ago. I grew up in a small Missouri town called Cape Girardeau, right on the Mississippi River. I was raised on an Arabian Horse Ranch and when I was 19, I moved away and lived all over the United States.

    I married my CO native husband last year and am now a proud step mom of two. I went to massage school and got my license back in 2016 and started Rose Manual Therapy. Outside of schooling I learned from a Rolfer and studied about Fascia, which in turn led to my unique technique that I use today.

Are you from Colorado? Which neighborhood did you eventually choose to call home?

  • I am a transplant. Born in Houston, I’ve lived in Pensacola, St. Louis, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Santa Fe, Eugene and now Denver. When I first moved here I lived in Capital Hill, bought a house in Wheat Ridge that I sold in 2021, currently live in Englewood and hope to buy a house next year around Littleton area. The older I get the further from the city I’d like to be. Probably has something to do with being raised on a farm in the middle of nowhere.

Where is your Business Located?

  • I work from home. I had an office for several years at 11th and Acoma, but like so many, I moved to my home when the pandemic happened. Best decision!

Can you describe your technique and Fascia? And how your Style of Massage Therapy is Unique?  

  • My technique is very simple in a nutshell. I’m simply creating space in the body again. I’m reading your tissue and finding the inconsistencies; which is where pain, immobility and almost problems you experience happen. My work is very detailed but deep. There is a perfect pressure the fascia requires in order to change without causing further damage. I use movement with my work. I am essentially reprogramming the tissue that has formed a new pattern from over or under use of that muscle. Telling the muscles they can move their full range of motion again safely. It is very bittersweet but effective.

 Can you tell us about being Featured on the Podcast “Skinfessions” and being Featured in a 5280 Magazine Article ?

  • I talk about Fascia of course, but I also touch on conscious work, stress and fasting. Any podcast streaming service should have it.

  • An Excerpt from the 5280 Magazine Article:   “I try to read the body and discover where the impingement is,” she says. “It could be the size of a pinhead, and it might not be located where the pain is.” When she does find it, she works her magic—and will likely ask for your help. “The grooves between muscles and bones and nerves should be slippery with fascia,” she says. “When areas aren’t stimulated, the fascia gets hard and sticks to things, causing pain. That’s why I ask my clients to move certain ways during therapy to stimulate the area and unstick things.” While the therapy might not be as relaxing as, say, a hot stone massage, it’ll likely give you something better: lasting relief.”

What challenges have you experienced on your journey?  

  • Having a client that I know I can help, but they aren’t willing to go through the pain it requires to heal.

How would you describe the Personality or “Vibe” of Denver?

  • Denver people work hard and play equally hard.

What is the Website and Instagram to Book with You?

I’ve never had a website or social media. My practice has always been referral only and very underground.
