Remedial and Sports Massage Therapist
Erika is trained in both sports and holistic massage so can help a wide variety of patients with her soothing hands! She is also trained in Indian Head Massage if this is something a patient requests.
Having always been told by friends and family I should be a massage therapist, I finally enrolled on a massage course and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am naturally someone who likes to help people and this career gives me the opportunity to do hands on treatments that have great results.
I trained at Tonic School of Massage in Henley on Thames. I really enjoyed the Holistic massage course that I enrolled in 3 years ago. Since then I decided to expand my knowledge and completed sports massage level 3 and 4. I also added Indian Head Massage to my certificates.
As the majority of my clients come for a sports massage, I feel it’s important to have feedback about the techniques, pressure, pain, and how the massage makes them feel, therefore a good trusting client-therapist relationship is essential. I like my clients to be responsive.
In my spare time I like to go to the gym, I do Pilates and walk every day. With two children, a husband, a dog and two cats, there is never a dull day!
I would like to further expand my knowledge by continuing to attend different seminars. I believe the key to being a good masseuse is in having extensive knowledge of the human anatomy and being able to visualise every muscle's origin and insertion when you are working on it.
