Erin, LMT  is a Licensed Massage Therapist who graduated from the core and Master’s Program at the Soma Institute in 2010.  She completed a cadaver lab focusing on lower body injuries at UIC in 2011.  Her interest in the abilities of the human body began at a young age as she pushed herself to become an elite gymnast.  She is compassionate and understanding to the aches and pains caused from sports related injuries.  Erin uses her understanding of the body to tailor therapeutic massage treatment plans that address the pain and target the root of the problem.  She does this by using a variety of techniques such as trigger point release, myofascial release, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching.

Erin was mentored by the Bears chiropractor and has been working with clients from professional athletes to weekend warriors; from soccer moms to expectant mothers.  She treats all musculo-skeletal issues from back aches to pregnancy pains.  Erin’s passion for this work lies in a deep belief that finding the root of dysfunction and alleviating pain increases the wellness of a person’s life.  She also believes that finding a well tailored plan with a team of trusted individuals increases the healing process immensely.
