Erika treated me during the last three years of my career with the Paul Taylor Dance Company. At the time I was suffering from degenerative joint disease, and it was her superb care and treatment that allowed me to continue dancing. When I left the company the focus of our work shifted to preparing me for total hip replacement surgery. These preparations, along with our post surgical physical therapy, enabled me to heal and recover at a rapid rate. Today I am enjoying a pain free life, moving with freedom and ease, and expecting my first child.
Erika’s command of anatomy and kinesiology, combined with her years of experience and firsthand knowledge of the physical demands of dancing, are immediately apparent. What makes her so special, invaluable in fact, is her wise understanding that no two bodies and no two injuries are the same: she treats every patient, every case, as completely individual and unique. She listens to you, she asks questions, and she patiently takes time to learn about your lifestyle and understand exactly what you require of your body. She assimilates all this information into her treatment, finding patterns and finding solutions while always remaining interested, concerned, and 100% committed to her patient.
While I still see Erika for occasional hip “tune-ups”, I now see her primarily for craniosacral therapy. I have always felt a profound connection with this work, and Erika’s sensitive and empathic nature make her an ideal practitioner, so naturally I was thrilled when she began incorporating it into her practice. She creates a beautiful space of energy that allows me to completely relax and get the maximum benefit of her healing touch. It has been especially helpful in balancing my energy and easing my pregnancy symptoms.
Erika has also treated my husband for various gym related pains, and she had him running and boxing again in no time, armored with new knowledge to prevent further injuries. Once our baby is born he/she will be adjusting to life outside of the womb with the help of Erika’s craniosacral therapy. Our whole family will enjoy good health and wisdom thanks to Erika!
