ERICA in the Quad Ciities
I was born and raised in Austin, TX. At the age of 16, I started working in recording studios, and managing bands. I attended massage school there in 2004, because another inherent calling was manifesting itself inside me. One day my father asked me to hold my hands above his arm, and generate heat (as a test from a friend he refers to as “the witch doctor”…ha!). After a few seconds he was convinced I had a gift, because without actual contact, I had made his arm feel as if it were next to a fire. More than one client has inquired if I was using hot stones during treatment, when in all actuality it was the energy emanating from my hands.
During massage school, I focused my practical treatment population project on musicians, to emphasize the need and importance of bodywork to sustain and enhance performance. My next goal was to go back to school for music therapy. Instead, I ended up back out on the road driving and lugging gear (I love it.). I have helped run, and have worked hands on for clinics during music festivals administering acupuncture, massage, and naturopathic first aide on the staff and performers.
After working all up and down the West coast, my practice has now landed in the High Rockies of Colorado working with Olympians, and at a 5 star hot springs retreat. My touch is intuitive, effective, and works with the natural rhythms and frequencies of the human body. “Gentle yet assertive.”
I am an integrative, 3D body worker. My focus accompanies the Central Nervous System. I see the human body as a series of open and closed circuits. The goal is to tear down adhesions, freeing the voltage to create effortless flow through the system. I guess you could say I am a low-frequency engineer.
My modalities include:
-Manual Lymphatic Drainage
-Muscle Energy Technique
-Manual Ligament Therapy
-Pre/Post Event Massage
-Pre/Post Natal Massage
-Jin Shin Do
-Specific Treatment Massage (i.e. degenerative conditions, neuritis/neuralgia, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Whiplash (for some of you heavier rockers out there…haha), and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome to name a few)
I think this company is ingenious, and I am honored to be a part of the Dr. Dot team.
*I am available for tours.
Look forward to working with you, and see ya down the road.
