Eric's treatments are holistic, yet address specific concerns and utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities to tap into the body's innate ability to heal. He works though the various layers of tissue to target adhesions and chronic patterns of tension. Your body is passively rocked and stretched to loosen and realign joints, fascia, and muscular fibers. Eric's treatment philosophy is: a little bit of medicine, a little bit of sugar as he balances therapeutic techniques which have the potential for discomfort, with nurturing and nourishing techniques aimed at bringing the body into a state of bliss. Treatment goals are not only to relieve pain and tension, but to leave his clients relaxed and revitalized.

Eric trained as a massage therapist in British Columbia where requirements for the profession are among the most extensive in the world. He completed over 3,000 hours of undergraduate studies in anatomy, physiology, pathology, specialized treatment, professional development, and ethics. He is registered as a primary health care provider in British Columbia and licensed as a massage therapist in Hawaii.

Eric's experience includes working in clinical settings, busy wellness centers and top hotel spas. Conditions he treats range from musculoskeletal issues arising from motor vehicle accidents or sports injuries, to conditions such as headaches, TMJD, nerve syndromes, arthritis, stress and chronic tension. Modalities used include myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, trigger point therapy, muscle energy technique, joint mobilizations, passive and PNF stretching, craniosacral therapy, and therapeutic exercise as well as Swedish and deep tissue massage.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Lin on Jun 24
Eric was recommended by a trusted friend. My daughter is 12 and has been suffering from neck pains for the last 6 months, probably from carrying a heavy backpack to school, ballet classes, and bad postures. My daughter has never been to a massage therapist, so Eric's sensitive and very considerate guidance is much appreciated. Eric not only provided much needed pain relief for her, but also many tips including breathing technique, on how she can improve her postures and change habits in daily life, particular when she's using her computer.

You really were very intuitive. Wish it could have lasted a little longer.

I really enjoyed his constant concern for my comfort. The session ended too quickly and I had hoped that it would have continued.

My husband and I each had a 90 minute massage with Eric. He was professional from start to finish and focused on my shoulder which has been causing me some trouble in the last year or so. I highly recommend him for your next massage! Mahalo Eric!!

The only thing that I wish is that the massage was done in my room and not the guest house's massage room. Otherwise, a terrific massage.
