Eric is a graduate of the Florida School of Massage, but before Massage School he had already been in the medical field for more than 15 years. His background includes being a Life Guard in South Florida (where he grew up), a Combat Medic in the Army, a Volunteer Fire Fighter/EMT, and now more than a decade as a Critical Care Tech in the Medical ICU at the Gainesville VA Hospital. All this gives him a broad knowledge base to help you feel better and more relaxed.

Clients chose Eric for his knowledge and strength, just as much as they do his softness and ability to help you relax. His warm hands and soft touch blend perfectly with his ability to get the pressure you like. How ever you like your massage, relaxing or therapeutic, Eric works hard to make sure it's just how you want it.

Eric and the other therapists at Compass Point Massage will go out of their way to make sure you have the best massage experience you can have, and leave our office feeling better. With consistent work, hopefully your daily life will also be able to improve through the reduction of tension and ease of muscle pain.

Everything was great!

*actually leave relaxed, compared to other places in gainesville *knowledgable, suggests stretches for my problem areas *very professional, but also easy to connect with *peaceful office and great location, no big box store traffic to fight I'm not trained at all, but it seems like Eric has a much better understanding of how the muscles connect and how cetain rubbing motions work together to release tension. Eric is also really great about taking the time to understand my problem areas and suggests stretches and movements I can do at home to help prevent tension building up. I'm a student and travel a lot for internships and things. Ive gotten messages other places where I leave in pain, my muscles spasm and lock up, and it's just miserable.

My first massage ever. Was an awesome experience. Eric was very knowledgable and very focused on customer needs; wants. Encouraged questions and feedback. Made the whole experience very personal with the utmost respect and professionalism.

Eric thoroughly worked through all the muscles that needed extra attention and gave just enough pressure. He knows what he's doing! Professional therapist, good atmosphere, and effective massage

Eric provides a relaxing atmosphere combined with a natural knack for massage therapy. He worked tirelessly to ensure that I was happy with my visit. I’ve never felt so relaxed after a massage as I did after leaving my appointment with Eric. Keep up the amazing work!
