REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Eric takes great care to listen and responds intuitively to my story each time. His equally intuitive technique, and professional demeanor, paired with the lovely and calming environment at Elk Rock will keep me coming back. It has been the next step in the process of healing ancient trauma in my body. I am grateful to have been referred.

Eric took time to get to know me and how I was feeling. He's very skilled and used different modalities to address my pain and tension.

Great massage. I was very sore after some strenuous backpacking and Eric sorted me out. Highly recommended!

Hands down the best massage I have ever received

Great technique, very professional and I would recommend him to other. I only had 2 things that kept this from being 5 stars; 1) Eric’s hands were cold the entire time, I know this may not be something he has any control over but it did take away from the overall pleasantness. 2) Eric’s nails seemed too long at certain point when he was using his fingers on pressure points and/or deep tissue. Again I know this may be something that can’t be changed, his nails didn’t look long I could just feel them cutting into my skin (no marks or anything just the sensation).

I have gotten 3 massages from Eric and absolutely love him. Before each massage, Eric asks what my massage needs are-he listens and delivers. I have a tight upper back and Eric gets right in there and loosen things up. He is very considerate with my desire to converse, or not during, our session. Eric is very professional and provide great insights to massage therapy (e.g. breathing into the tight spots). It was a game changer for me.
