Giveaway: A Free Massage from East Eden Eden (Enter Contest Soon!)

Pittsburghers we have a little piece of paradise and it is not located in Heinz Field. It is in East Liberty and it is called "East End Eden" . It’s a wellness center where you can escape from the challenges of the world. It was started by Emily Escalante. 

Emily is a true renaissance woman. She is  a former graphic designer who decided to venture on a new path.  After being downsized a few years ago Emily attended Pittsburgh Massage Therapy and became a certified massage therapist. Then, she started “East End Eden”. She also writes a blog called, "The Thirsty Therapist" located at  She has even assisted the Pittsburgh Steelers 2011 Training Camp!

Some people get to travel the world like Elizabeth Gilbert and "Eat, Pray, and Love" their way to balance. Most of us have to find our balance locally. In Pittsburgh, thanks to Emily, "East End Eden" is a place where stressed mothers, fathers, and singles can unwind, relax, and find balance. “East End Eden” offers yoga forstress management, life coaching with a nutrition focus, massage, and other classes and services. Emily is married and mother to two elementary aged children. She has been a stay-at-home mom. She has worked in corporate America. Now she is an entrepreneur. She understands that balance is not just a necessity for mothers who work outside of the home. All mothers need to take time for themselves. As Emily said, “If you focus externally, even if it’s on your family, you will burn out and won’t be able to be a force for change in the world.”

Emily believes that Pittsburgh is an ideal community to start a small business and now is the ideal time to do so. Time will tell if she is right about that. However, I know that I enjoyed the serene environment at “East End Eden”. I know that being there made me feel more centered and put me in a Zen like state. I know that it is an ideal place to get re-charged.

I  also know that would like to share that experience with one of my readers. Emily was generous enough to give one of my blog readers a free massage.  Perhaps you would like to give one to a special man in your life for Father's Day?
