About Erin...

A long time resident of Shelby, I have been practicing massage therapy here since 2004, after completing my initial massage training at the Whole You School of Massage in Rutherfordton. Always interested in physical fitness and the well being of the body, massage therapy was a very natural fit for me. It has been my core belief that our bodies respond better to treatments that work with the body, giving it what it needs instead of treating just symptoms. Once thought of as a luxury, massage is now recognized as a form of treatment necessary to overall health and well being. Whether you need to relieve sore muscles and tension, or just get away to relax and feel good, a therapeutic massage can do wonders for you.

Sometimes the gentle, relaxing strokes of a Swedish massage will give you the quiet you need to let go, while other times more aggressive, therapeutic massage is necessary to release tight muscles and bands to achieve desired results and overcome persistent pain. I work with each client on an individual basis regarding things like lifestyle, work, and leisure activities to determine what may be the cause of certain issues and how we can work together to make them better. 

In 2005, I completed training in Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy. I became an Ashi therapist because I felt that I was unable to deliver a massage with just my hands that met the needs of some of my clients desiring deeper work. I have since received advanced training and continue to improve and develop a technique that is unique in its application. I strongly feel that more education and exposure to alternative types of therapies help me to meet the needs of my clients, and what services I can offer them.

Massage can benefit people from all walks of life, from infants to the elderly.  However, massage may be contraindicated in certain circumstances.  Massage can be a complement to, not a substitute for, medical treatment for injuries or illnesses.  Massage therapists cannot diagnose illnesses or injuries.  If you are under a doctor's care, I may request written permission from your physician prior to beginning any bodywork.  

I would welcome the opportunity to work with you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns you may have. Even if you do not choose me as your therapist, I encourage you to find a therapist and begin enjoying the many benefits massage therapy has to offer




In a gentle way, you can shake the world.
- Mohandas Gandhi
