Erin Johnson was born in Jacksonville Beach, but grew up outside of Philadelphia in Media, PA. She attended Millersville University, where she studied Biology and Psychology. After college she moved back to Jacksonville and attended Heritage Institute for Therapeutic Massage. While in school, she had the pleasure of interning with University of North Florida’s various sports teams. Since graduating and passing her national board for Therapeutic Massage in 2004, she has furthered her studies in Neuromuscular Therapy, Swe-Thai, Medical massage, and Ashiatsu. She also pulls from her knowledge in Sports massage, Deep Tissue, Swedish and Trigger-point therapy to create a session that best fits your personal needs.
Movement is Important! Erin is passionate about continuing her education and broadening her skills and understanding of bodywork through all aspects of Western and Eastern philosophies of Wellness. In recent years she began her study of movement teaching. She is comprehensively trained as a Pilates Instructor through Body Balance University. In 2012, Erin was introduced to Qigong and in 2015, became a student with the Lotus Neigong School of the Daoist Arts, where she is part of a 3-year teacher-training program.
Every “Body” is different. Everyone has their own requirements and responds in their own way. She believes that everybody should feel that their request for pressure and style are honored, so we can create space within yourself for your body to feel balanced and restored. You should walk away feeling relaxed, at ease, and moving better than you could have imagined. Developing body awareness whether actively with Pilates, passively through Massage or energetically with Qigong, puts you in a place where you are able to live better!
Erin lives in Atlantic Beach with her two daughters. Her house rules are: Honor Your Body, Eat Well, Exercise, and Read every day……… or at least 95% of the time (always leave room for error, i.e. Chocolate!)
