About Us

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 ...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Everything was very nice.

    I've been training for a marathon and logging more miles than I had ever done in over 10 years after a hamstring injury. Trying to be smarter with training and making sure I implement good PT before injury. Erika's AIS session did the trick and kept me on the training track.

  • Honestly, Erika's skill level was more than I could have ever expected. The massage she gave me was tailored to some very specific running-related pain. I was very concerned that I would not be able to complete my 'long run' the following day-- and not only did I complete it- I actually felt great afterwards. I am still shocked at how this could be! The day after my long run some of the pain has resurfaced (thought not in the specific area worked on by Erika) and I hoping to get in one more session w her before my 1/2 marathon this weekend. Thank you thank you thank you Ericka- in just one session you have completely transformed my understanding of what Is possible regarding pain management/rehabilitation through massage. And I am truly grateful! Hope to see you downtown next weekend!! And hopefully one more time in your office;)

    Erika is very knowledgable and intuitive. She spent a considerable amount of time listening to what brought me in and what I was looking to gain from the visit before the massage even began. I came in with a specific injury that my doctor recommended medical massage as a pain management strategy and Erika delivered. She was able to begin to alleviate some of the areas of my body that have taken the brunt of over-compensating for my injury. The office is clean and pleasant, she is very professional and makes you feel like she has all the time in the world for you.

  • The noise and smells could have produced a more tranquil environment.

    Impressed with technical knowledge and techniques. A great overall experience. I will be back.

  • Massage was great. Erika really was able to loosen my stiff neck. Thank you!

    She's the best! Best massage in Metro Detroit!

  • Went there in pain which was affecting my training. Erika took the time to understand how this happened and not only worked on the problem spot but gave stretches to help before my next visit.

    I'm a skeptic when it comes to massage therapy. My short session certainly gave me pain relief with an on going issue. I will be goin back on a regular basis.

Hi Kelly, I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your visit. Unfortunately there isn't much I can do about traffic noise, but please let me know if there is a type of music that you would prefer and I would be happy to play it. Also I would be happy to turn off my essential oil diffuser if the smell bothers you. I hope to see you back soon!

Erika provided an Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) session on the lower body. She did an excellent job explaining what to expect. The session was very thorough and left my legs and hips feeling very limber. The studio was very clean, light, and airy.

The location is convenient, the environment is welcoming, and Erika is very professional. Erika gives a great sports massage and is amazing at working on trouble areas. With other massage places, I usually leave feeling very sore and sometimes that soreness will last for days- not the case with Erika, I always leaving feeling better and have never had that residual soreness. I highly recommend Superior Massage Therapy!

I am a competitive weight lifter with tons of aches and pains that have not gotten better with stretching and strength training.

Erika addressed my main concerns very well! I have neck issues and my neck was feeling better as soon as I got up and off the table. Today a day later my neck is feeling better than usual! If your looking for a therapist who can give a good firm pressure and has good techniques she's the right therapist for you! I've been to many therapists and I've been searching for one to continuously go to and I rebooked with Erika for the following week! Her prices are very fair! Her massage room was very clean, calming and simple. And It was very easy to find her house- (close by me which was a plus). I'm excited for my massage next week!

I enjoyed her enthusiasm, attention to detail, given that she is a new starting out, she has tried to accommate your comfort. Would of liked her not to be so concerned of covering thinking you are overexposed, after all, she is in the field where you must be a bit less inhibited for her to do her job. That just goes with the territory. No different than getting a physical at a doctors office. I will go back for she is one of the few that will succeed just by her doing her homework!

I thought I was on the road to having another surgery on my back and possibly my shoulder when Erika suggested I try a massage. The difference has been night and day. I feel so much better than I did. I could barely stand up straight or sleep at night with the pain in my shoulder. I would recommend Erika to anyone.
