Establishing healthy lifestyles through
authentic, holistic health practices
Erika is a Therapeutic Massage Therapist & Thermography Technician.
She believes that good health is not a luxury and works with her clients to create a healthier, happier self by reducing stress, improving energy, and reaching their life goals.
Erika received her massage training from Eastwind Holistic School of Healing in Iowa City in 1999 and continued her education at The Institute of Therapeutic Massage and Wellness in Davenport. Erika believes massage is a therapeutic and necessary tool in life.Therapeutic massage is a combination of techniques and pressure to help relieve pain, reduce stress and improve movement while working on specific problem/areas.
Bodywork and massage therapy are mostly the same, though bodywork is part of a larger holistic modality that encompasses massage therapy as well as a variety of therapeutic techniques. This includes manipulation, breath work, energy work, tools, hot and cold, muscle testing and cups to promote awareness of the mind-body connection and helping to uncover the root cause of dysfunction.
Erika became a Thermology Technician in 2014 through Breast Thermography International. Thermography is a radiation-free state-of- the-art screening procedure that captures heat images of the breast to aid in the early detection of cancer and fibrocystic breast disease. Thermography is a painless and non-invasive test with 97% accuracy. She is a member of BTI and a certified Professional Academy of Clinical Thermology technician.

We are all exposed to hundreds of toxins a day in the air we breathe, what we eat and drink, and the products we put on our bodies. Because of this overload, our bodies’ filtration organs, otherwise known as our detoxification systems, have a hard time processing adequately. A Detox Foot bath is a natural, healthy, easy on the body way to detox.
