A little about me: I have my bachelor's degree from Northern Michigan University in Sport Science, once I finished with my degree I continued my education by attending massage therapy school at Ann Arbor Institute for Massage Therapy.  I am now a licensed massage therapist and am certified in myofascial release.  I am also trained in; neuro muscular therapy, sports massage, thai massage and other modalities.  
I am an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, camping, and riding my motorcycle (not necessarily in that order).  I believe that being active and living healthy play a large role in the happiness we experience in life.  I encourage everyone to do what you love and love what you do!
Why I do what I do:  I became interested in massage therapy so that I could help people. Massage is a great source of pain and stress relief and that is my goal as a therapist. I want you to come see me and leave feeling better. 
It is important to be proactive in your own health. The best way to do that is to do everything you can to stay healthy; being active and eating healthy are a great place to start! My role as a massage therapist is to keep you doing what you love, so book an appointment!

working in Physical Therapy is what gave me the idea to persue my carreer in Massage Therapy. I learned a lot about the Human body, specifically the musculo-skeletal system.

I was trying to find the building and could not reach anyone to help me locate the building. I walked in on a meeting and felt uncomfortable at first. Erika is very knowledgeable and kind.

Everything was great about this massage! Erika being a cyclist and triathlete herself knows exactly what muscles are utilized during each activity. And also how to target the troublesome areas! So far both massages I’ve had at Superior have been fantastic!

I have been seeing Erika for a little over a year, and cannot say enough good about her attention to your individual issues and needs - I always leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, and have noticed an overall change in my athletic performance (and general comfort) since beginning to see her!

Erika is very knowledgable about her practice. She is also personable and amazing at what she does! I'm so happy to have found her and to return.
