Erin believes in the profound effects massage therapy can have on our lives – bringing us more in tune with our bodies and inviting us to deeply connect with what we find there. Her intention is to access the origin of her client’s tensions and allow space for the restrictions to expand, release and, finally, to dissipate. She likes to create a rapport with the people she works with, creating a therapeutic plan that may involve a progression from Swedish Relaxation massage through more intense, therapeutic techniques such as Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release. She is grateful to share this healing art with you and to have it be the method for which she lives her life.
