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.

Erika did a great job! I love that she also aimed to educate so that i can maintain my care in between massage sessions.

Always a great experience with Erika. She takes her time to understand what is going on in my body so she knows how to best treat me before even getting me on the massage table! Highly recommend to anyone!

Erika was great - she tailored the massage to reduce soreness ahead of a big race.

Erika knows the human body very well and that shows with her work

Erika was amazing! While I note a good massage leaves me sore, Erika got me to a really good place and provided the muscle release/relief that I desperately needed. She was also able to talk through some strategies to mitigate muscle imbalances in the future.

Erika was welcoming and professional, very easy to talk to. Asked questions about my sport and my aches and pains that brought me in for the massage, and then tailored the therapy to those concerns. Massage was great, with appropriately deep pressure on tight spots.

Erika was friendly, and found tight spots I didn't even know I had.

I abuse my body quite a bit in my quest to get back to running and I can always count on Erika to put the pieces back together and get me feeling great!
