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 allopathic medicine meet natural health care practices and embracing the wisdom of the ages. I've found joy in bodywork and helping clients maintain abundant health.  I'm also a mother of 4 amazing children and happily married for 20 years and counting.

Erika is the best. Highly recommend.
by Bob on Dec 15
Erica is far and away the best massage therapist I have ever had work on me. Very skilled, with deep knowledge if all the muscles, and how they all work together. She shares this knowledge as she works on the problem areas. She makes excellent suggestions for self action to improve health and reduce future problems. Erica us tops!

I liked Erica's way of doing massage. She made me relax and helped the areas that were hurting the most.
