Growing up in various states across the mid-west, Erika suffered from chronic neck and back pain and migraines. It wasn't until her own experience with massage therapy and chiropractic that Erika was finally able to find relief so she could enjoy fulfilling her passions. It was through her therapeutic experience with massage that she decided to pursue her career in massage in Iowa City at East-West School of Integrative Healing Arts.


Since earning her Massage Therapy degree in 2017, Erika has loved the opportunity to work with people in a holistic way, giving individualized care that fits their specific needs whether they are suffering from chronic pain or looking for some much needed relaxation. While Erika believes in treating the whole person to offer the best therapeutic experience based on their needs, some of the most common massage techniques she offers is Swedish, prenatal, trigger point, sports, and deep tissue. 

Erika and her fiancé live in Bloomington with their rescue pup, Sophie and three cats Cassie, Simba, and Nala. In her free time, you can find Erika walking around one of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes, watching the latest Marvel movie, or catching up on her reading list!
