Greetings - my name is Emry Ellinger, Owner/LMP of Hawks Prairie Massage Clinic. I served honorably in the United States Army for 9 years. Upon getting out, I completed massage school in Oklahoma. I also attended college with an emphasis in exercise science. In October 2014, with $400 to my name and living on the Ft. Lewis campgrounds, I started my first business, called Fitness Recovery Room. It was a struggle to maintain that massage business, but I never gave up. After 6 months and seriously considering the possibility of going back into the military, I was determined more than ever to build my dream. Miraculously, I found the perfect location. The owner of the Hawks Rest Professional Center gave me the chance to make my dream a possibility.
