Hi,  my name is Erika Cripe.    I studied kinesiology and minored in nutrition at LSU.   I've been an exercise instructor for many years teaching Pilates, Yoga, Water aerobics, spinning, HIT style classes and many others.  We moved to Grand Junction in 2013 and I've been teaching classes and personal training at the Fruita Rec Center ever since.  I love physical activity and helping people to regain and maintain function and abudant health.  I've studied and worked with herbs, plant medicine and essential oils for most of my life.  I ran a 16 acre hobby farm in Oklahoma, where I learned  to milk goats and make cheese and many other wonderful products. I grew a huge garden and ran a small CSA ( community supported agriculture) there.  I love seeing modern allopatic medicine meet natural health care practices and embracing the wisdom of the ages. I 've always loved massage and recently added this modality into my practice.  I've found so much joy in bodywork and helping clients maintain abundant health.  I'm also a mother of 4 amazing children and happily married for 19 years and counting.

Erika took a lot of time, more than the 60 minutes. I can’t find anything to complain about , Nepali Ayurvedic type massage is a head to toe treat . Wish I could have that massage everyday.
by Donna on Nov 08
Came away from the massage feeling like all my issues were addressed.

Couldn’t have asked for a better experience...

Erika is so knowledgeable and knows the body so well. She adds a personal touch to the massages she gives and addresses the whole body and person. Not just a plain massage.
