About Us

Hi, my name is Erika Cripe.  I've been a personal trainer in the fitness field for over 20 years.  I studied kinesiology and minored in nutrition at Lousiana State University.  I've attained certifications in Yoga, Pilates, Spinning, Aerobics, Silver Sneakers and Water aerobics.  I've studied herbs, essential oils, permaculture and food as medicine, Chinease and Arvada medicine, energy and light medicine.  I ran a small hobby farm and CSA(Community Supported Agriculture) in the past, when we lived in Oklahoma.  Abundant health has always been a passion of mine.  Massage and body work is a newer modality for me but it has come so naturally and fits so well with my passion for exercise and health.  Come see me and let me help you find renewal and more vibrant health. ... more

Had gone to school for massage myself, I am aware of techniques and proper movements. I was pleasantly impressed by her perfessionalsm and knowledge. She did an amazing job and taught me a few things as well. She did such a great job and covered all the bases that some massage therapists skip over. I left feeling very relaxed. I would recommend her to anyone that has chronic pain, new injuries or just a refreshing experience.

Erika's integration of all of her skills and knowledge has gone beyond any other massage therapist I have gone to. Her willingness to share of all of her "repertoire" to help my individual needs has given my much hope. She is professional, very friendly and encouraging. Her office is warm and filled with good smells and quotes...AND she gives a heated foot wrap! N. Turley

Ms. Cripe was very analytic. She listened as I described my various pains/discomforts. She manipulated the various points of pain--gently at first and then, firmly. Ms. Cripe pointed out several relationships between portions of my body of which I was not aware. I came away from the treatment/discussion with a feeling that I could be helped by her form of massage treatment. I have significant back problems and have explored surgery, physical therapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic therapy.

Fella that was coughing out at another office/desk was distracting. Would prefer more focused area massage for 60mins (in the future) as I know this was the first time I appreciate Erika’s professionalism but also prefer less talk to be able to focus on relaxation (no thinking on my part) Recommend water bottles at the end to provide to clients
