About Us

Ericka Gardner was born and raised in Bronx, NY.  She attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where she received her BS in Accounting. In 2008, the economy collapsed and she was laid off.  While looking for work, she noticed she was not excited about pursuing a career in Accounting.  All she wanted was a massage. That’s when the light bulb went off.  Ericka researched massage therapy schools and choose Southeastern Institute in Charlotte, NC. Upon graduation, Ericka was hired immediately at a local franchise, where she worked for several years.  During her tenure there, she often imagined how she would own and operate her own massage therapy business……

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Erica did a great job helping my back feel better and she was easily able to find the “trouble spots!” I would definitely recommend her as a highly qualified massage therapist.

    OMG! This was my first massage with Ericka. 18 years of sitting at a desk has put a lot of strain on my shoulders and back. The deep tissue massage has really loosen up the muscles and the tension. I look forward to my regular massages with Ericka to get this old girl back up and running properly.

  • I must say I was impressed with my 90 minute Deep Tissue Massage. I was greeted at the door with a warm welcome of how are you doing today. We talked about what was hurting and areas to concentrate on. She had great technique and combined some stretching. I am soar but feeling GREAT! Next appointment in 3 weeks.

    Ericka is a great massage therapist. She listens to your needs and adjusts accordingly.

  • Treated my mom to a massage for her birthday and she absolutely loved her experience with Ericka. She felt so relaxed and no longer tense. Ericka did an amazing job!

    Today is the first day that I didn't wake up with a headache or lower back pain. The best massage I have ever had. She is very knowledgeable in what she does. I traveled from Rock Hill SC, but it was worth it. I will be seeing her every 2 weeks for now. Highly highly recommend.

  • I will go back! Feel renewed!

    I got the hot stone massage with CBD oils massaged into my shoulders. This was my first experience with any CBD products and Ericka was great explaining then and sharing her personal experiences with them! As always, the hot stone massage was amazing!

  • Great Service. Feel much better.

    Enjoyed my massage. Scheduled 5 more massages. Ericka is great.

Ericka is a very talented massage therapist, one of the best massages I have had in a long time. The ambiance could use some improvement. There is a faint cigarette smoke odor in the room, not sure if it is the carpeting or linens. Also would recommend using a music app that is commercial-free as it was very distracting to hear ads play in the background.

At the young age of 12, I had my first massage. Fell in love with the experience and have continued to enjoy massages for sixty years. Today, I just had the best massage ever! Ericka is extremely skilled and every movement, stretch, manipulation served a purpose. I can recommend her without reserve. Book her for your next massage and you will be glad you did. Excellent.
