    A massage with Erin is an exceptional experience from start to finish. Erin is perceptive and a very good listener -- she always listens carefully to any description of any discomfort or things going on in my body. Whenever she has worked on me, her pressure has been perfect. I always leave in a perfect state of relaxation. And she is both knowledgeable and generous in recommending stretches and exercises to keep me in that state. Both therapeutic and enjoyable!

    – David Forrey

    I’ve had chronic leg pain since 2012. It wasn’t until I met Erin that I got to the bottom of the issue and started addressing the root cause of my symptoms. We began working on my stance and making sure my core and glutes were activated standing and while walking. Erin has been great at giving me pain and discomfort relief through message therapy, trigger point release, and deep stretching. I highly recommend her. I always look forward to our sessions!
