After over a year of miserable and chronic back pain from an injury in a yoga class that was only made worse by a horrific travel schedule (read: many hours in United’s not so friendly skies), I was at the end of my rope.
You name it, I’d tried it: acupuncture, weekly chiropractor sessions, physical therapy multiple times a week, a spinal specialist, etc and all of it with intense frequency and dedication. On the verge of facet joint injections and pretty much hopeless, one of my friends recommended Erika.
I had my doubts for sure. But, hell, if a new treatment came highly recommended, I’d be the first in line to check it out.
Enter Erika. She figured my body out quickly. Yoga, and teaching at the Dailey Method, and running, and crossfit, had taken its toll. She took it all in stride and figured out a program. Within a few sessions, I felt human again. A few months later, I feel normal. Normal (in case you missed that). No pain. I wake up and my back doesn’t hurt. I work out and am sore from, well, working out (and not some silly injury in my hip). I can sit on airplanes from this coast to the other and deplane without feeling like my grandmother.
Erika’s methods are intense; this isn’t a spa massage. I’m sure she’d do that if you asked, but you’d probably be missing out on what’s really special about Erika. She works to release tension not just at a trigger point, but also to unlock larger areas that are likely holding stress and pain and who knows what else. Did I mention that it can be intense? But amazing.
I’m heading to NYC for a couple of months and while I’m worried about living there, mostly I’m worried about how in the world I’ll survive without a weekly session from Erika.
She’s that good.
You absolutely will not regret a decision to work with her on whatever issues your body is having.
