About Us

I practice Amma and Shiatsu massage, Asian Bodywork styles rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory. I also practice cupping, gua sha, tuina, and moxibustion, all adjunct therapies that are sometimes added to a client's treatment depending on their needs.

Root is what lies underneath, the causal factor, the chronic issue you have been living with for a long time. The manifestation of that root issue is the branch, it is what you can see and feel and what you want help with in the present moment. By understanding your imbalances (where there is too much, where there is too little), I can create a massage flow unique to your needs.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • It was an amazing massage. Thank you, Erica!

    Truly wonderful, thank you Erica!

  • Ericca leaves me seeing stars after treatment! Her ability to read my body and know EXACTLY what I need is amazing. I enjoyed a mixed treatment of Shiatsu & therapeutic massage with Moxibustion. I will go back again and again!!

    I was impressed with every aspect of this experience! Please see my Front Porch Forum Post about it (April 12, 2022) and feel free to copy and paste it here. : ) Steph

  • Erica is a phenomenal practitioner. Her approach is so holistic and balancing, and her touch is very nourishing. She always takes the time to listen and understand my needs before the hands-on session begins. I have found her techniques to be very effective in reducing pain and tension in my physical body, releasing stress, balancing my mind and emotions and creating an overall sense of well-being. Erica is very talented and I highly recommend her services!

    Erica's massage was incredibly relaxing, and tailored to me and my current imbalances. I was fascinated by her approach and I will definitely return!

  • Wonderful experience, I was in so much pain and feel much better now that I can sleep without my neck hurting

    Erica continues to grow her already amazing skill set! Lots of little details and attention to client comfort. Excellent massage, strongly recommend.

  • Wonderful, relaxing and invigorating massages every time. Erica is intentional and professional. Thank you!

    What came through most in my session with Erica was her presence. Throughout our initial health intake and her nuaned bodywork offering, which included cupping, amma therapy, moxa, tuina, and probably a handful of other blissful modalities, it was evident she was attuned to my individual physiology and particular needs. The result - I felt absolutely at ease and balanced post-treatment, and the depth of this centered state expanded noticeably throughout the day. Erica is such a gift, and I consider myself fortunate to have experienced her intelligent, intuitive offerings. I can't wait for my next session.

I would definitely recommend Erica. Her office is clean, welcoming, and relaxing, and she has taken COVID safety protocols very seriously. Erica checks in before and after each massage to see how I'm doing/how things went, and responds to my feedback and needs during this time and during the massage. I look forward to my massages with Erica.

Erica is probably the best massage therapist I’ve been to. She makes you feel completely connected and at ease by being highly personable and professional. She is clearly very passionate about her work and takes great care to mindfully diagnose and address problem areas, specific to your unique situation. The consultation before my massage was helpful in figuring out which areas to target and understanding possible root causes. I suffer from lower back and neck pain from sitting at a desk for most of my working day, and sprawled over my bicycle most evenings. After one session with Erica, I left feeling transformed… like I was floating! Her session was restorative for both my body and mind. Even days later, her techniques and calm, healing environment made me feel grounded and present. I would recommend Erica for everyone!

Erica is skilled, knowledgeable, thoughtful, and intuitive. After my massage I felt relaxed, refreshed, and more in tune with my body and its needs. I’ve had a good number of massages in my life and have usually left the experience thinking “that was nice” and not much more. But I left Root and Branch eager to schedule another appointment. She is that good.

The massage was so helpful in reliving shoulder and hip pain I have been experiencing for 2 months. Additionally, having a through new-patient intake process was assuring in being able to provide helpful information to Erica your that I might not have thought to mention- I felt like I was in good hands- literally!

Erica is an incredibly skilled and professional bodyworker/healer. Her intelligent touch, knowledge of Amma massage, insightful questions and suggestions and inviting space are just right. I consistently see and feel significant change in my neck, shoulders and back after seeing Erica. I wholeheartedly recommend this deeply relaxing and healing experience.

I felt so relaxed after my massage yesterday. Erica asked thoughtful questions to tailor my massage to my specific needs. She found and relieved tension I didn't know I was holding, and the entire experience was just what I needed. Erica is a caring professional. She listens closely to what you need and is incredibly skilled. I can't recommend her enough!

Erica is so professional and she really listens to her clients. When I go in and tell her that I have a problem area, she gives me advice on how to take care of it on my own and she spends time and energy on that area during the session. I feel like so many places ask about problem areas, but then just give a generic massage. Erica's knowledge about the body and how everything connects is thorough and impressive. 10/10 would recommend her to a friend OR stranger :)

What an experience. Having Erica work on my body was a true gift of self love. She is knowledgeable, caring, and I felt instinctively safe in her hands. Her touch was the perfect level of pressure, sometimes noticeably working my muscles, and other times just lightly rearranging the energy of my body. I loved the variety of techniques she used in our session, and could feel the results of targeted problems quickly. I will be seeing Erica again as often as possible, and I highly recommend the same for literally everyone!
