Real Clients, Real Experiences
My knee had some serious issues since my teenage years, doctors told me that surgery would make it worse, but prevent any further deteriorating. I lived with this for 9 years, giving into the fact that I wouldn’t be able to be active in my early thirties.
I told Erica about the pain, and was blown away when she started describing my symptoms before I could. Thirty minutes later, my knee was fixed; and I don’t mean “felt better” I mean, it works like I was 16 again. Since then, I refuse to see anyone else, and now she helps after my 5k mud Runs!
Patience is vital with bodywork – it allows me to work with the body to release tension when ready instead of forcing and causing further injury. The gentle, firm, and strong touch of massage therapy encourages the softening of body tissue and eases pain. While it promotes healing from injury, it also helps relieve stress and feelings of anxiousness.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle touch therapy approach that releases tension deep in the body to relieve pain, discomfort, and dysfunction. With a gentle touch to the cranium, sacrum, and spinal muscles, CST encourages the release of soft tissue that surrounds the central nervous system. CST is perfect as preventative care due to its ability to help strengthen the immune system against illnesses and other dysfunctions and pain in the body. While many use CST primarily for physical pain, I use it for mental & emotional health as well to encourage healing to the body, mind, and spirit.

Postural assessment evaluates one’s posture to help locate an imbalance in the muscular and skeletal systems. The assessment allows an in-depth understanding of pain and injuries, allowing the therapist to work on the root of the cause instead of the symptoms. Postural assessments will also decrease the chances of injury or pain.
Many times in our lives, we feel depressed, full of sadness, drained, confused, experiencing illness and trauma, or feeling pain. When this happens, it usually means there is a block in us mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This can disrupt our everyday life in many ways. Determining the cause is called shadow work; most often, there is something that keeps us from exploring ourselves – This is where I come in. Using Shamanic healing, I work in partnership with your energy and Spirit to understand the blocks disrupting your energy and causing discomfort. Learn More.
