"There is a sacred partnership among those who build a home dedicated to truth and harmony. Their home is a safe harbor for others: a lamp in the darkness."
In 2010, Brad and Emily began their partnership in life and in their massage practice. With their combined knowledge and skills a new technique emerged; the 4 Hand massage. With both of them working in symphony it became a harmonious blend of different yet complementary techniques which resulted in deeper relaxation and more unwinding of a tense mind and body. Quickly, their individual clients began to prefer and request the 4 Hand massage. They soon realized that they had come across something that was more than a luxury, but a powerful healing tool. They strongly believe in maintaining a positive and happy frequency for themselves and for others. Integrating a regular practice of connection and stress relief through yoga, qigong, and meditation are imperative to their health and happiness.
Always intrigued with the human muscular and skeletal system, Brad became a Licensed Massage Therapist in 2001 at Hands on Approach Massage School in Dallas, TX. He soon realized that his passion was in Fitness, Rehabilitation, and helping all of his clients to feel better so they can live a full, pain free life and achieve health on all levels. He has achieved special training in Anatomy/Physiology, Advanced Neuromuscular Massage, Deep Tissue/Sports Massage, Personal Training, Qigong, Reiki, and Vipassana Meditation. WIth 15 years of experience, he has since become a CE Provider for his fellow Massage Therapists so that he can pass on his knowledge and intuition of Massage & Bodywork. His consistently genuine and humorous personality allows his clients to feel comfortable as he assists their bodies in healing and helps guide them to find harmony in all things. In his free time, Brad is a martial artist in training and avid reader.
Always passionate about encouraging and helping others to be happy and healthy, Emily became a Certified Medical Assistant in 2005 and began working closely with Chiropractic and Natural Medicine doctors which quickly inspired her career as a massage therapist and healer. Licensed in Massage Therapy at The Phoenix School of Holistic Health & Massage in Houston, TX since 2007, she soon realized that performing massage was rewarding for not only her clients but her own spirit as well and she has much gratitude for that reward. She has been learning about Yoga and Meditation since 2009 as a continued student of Vipassana Meditation, Hatha Yoga, and Kundalini Yoga leading her to become a Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Yoga in 2012. Emily is dedicated to deeply relaxing her clients to provide healing and complete restoration of body, mind, and spirit using her skills in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue/Sports Massage, Prenatal Massage, Yoga, Meditation, and Reiki. In her free time, Emily loves dancing, botanical drawing, and being in nature.

"4-hand massage is a beautiful thing! *sigh* Brad + Emily are a divine and harmonious duo and I don't think I can ever go back to regular massage now.... Thank you Hands of Chi Massage!"Jocelyn
"I just want to let all of you know that Tuesday I had probably the greatest massage known to man. I know a few of you have heard me talk about my massage while you were in the office, but I just wanted to get the word out even more today. I had what is aptly named "The Four Hand Massage", yep you guessed it that is two people massaging you at the same time. The practitioners of this wonderful massage are Brad and Emily Tidwell of "Hands of Chi" Massage. I just want to let all of you know about them and I highly suggest visiting them. They are also out at the Sunset Valley Farmers Market on Saturdays. I have included their contact information for all of you and I really can't begin to describe how great the massage was."Dr. James
“I have run over 70 marathons and have used massage therapy for over 7 years. I also spend a lot of time traveling and at the computer. Brad's techniques have been the best I've ever experienced, especially for muscle and shoulder recovery. I would recommend him to any athlete or person who works out. His massage makes a great difference for me. I'm always impressed with Brad's ability to recognize key target areas to work on with no supervision. That is my measure of a talented massage therapist.”Trent
"I've gone to Emily for a little over four years now. She is amazing! I've seen her during two pregnancies and she helped the entire time and even went above and beyond to offer prenatal massages. It is easy to relax around her. Emily is one of the most gifted massage therapists I have ever been to and we are lucky to have found her."Melissa
"Massage from Emily is just like eating comfort food and has become part of my routine to not only relax my body but also my mind."Hweilu
"I have had 2 back surgeries and have been seeing Emily for a deep tissue massage once a week for over 4 years. A few years ago, she introduced me to her wonderful husband, Brad, and I started seeing him for my massages when Emily wasn't available. They have different styles of massage, Brad has hands of steel and really gets in there to work out those knots while Emily has long, firm strokes that soothe and relaxes those knotty muscles of mine, so for me, their different styles are wonderful. They both know my many “trouble spots”, and after 2 back surgeries there are a lot, but we were finding that even with a 2 hour session with just one of them, there were still some spots we would have to miss and then try to remember to get to them the following week. Then, Brad and Emily came up with the amazing 4-hand massage. OMG! If you have never tried it, you have got to at least try it once, but be prepared because after a 4-hand massage, you will never want to go back to a single person massage. Imagine every muscle in your body getting massaged twice in two different ways – Brad working that knot out and then Emily getting deeper into that knotty muscle that Brad has loosened up. We have found that with a 4-hand massage, we can get more work done in 1 hour than we ever could with 2 hands and 2 hours. Try it…..you will LOVE it and never go back to a 2-hand!"Kim
