What Our Clients Say
I’ve been getting body work from Erin for about 3 years now. She is, hands down, the BEST therapist there is. Not only does her work feel incredible, she actually FIXES problem areas. When I first met Erin, I was ready to go in for my second shoulder surgery. I couldn’t lift my arm without pain and a loud popping sound. Erin showed me that my shoulder joint was fine but the muscles attaching to it were imbalanced and were the cause of my severe pain. It only took a few sessions with Erin to be able to take my arm out of the sling and regain full range of motion. Years later, I am still turning to Erin every time my body feels “off.” She is a true “Body mechanic!
I loved how Erin explained what she was doing and gave me feedback on my body and the problems that she saw. I also liked how her balance of silence and some talking as appropriate. She also has a great sense of humor. This was one of the best massages I’ve ever had and she seriously changed how my body felt prior to the massage.
Erin is constantly expanding her education in medical therapies, learning new techniques and deepening her knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Her feel, experience, and extensive training make her the ideal massage therapist.
Excellent through and through, 5-stars! Would not hesitate to recommend to my family and friends – not to mention by doctor.
