About

arica

(Please note that my name is pronounced “Erica”).

I am a Registered Massage Therapist and Energy Healer. From the age of eleven, I knew that my life purpose was to use my hands to help people heal. Healing is my passion, and I have been studying different forms of bodywork and energy work for the past 25 years, and am continually expanding and deepening my skills.

I consider my work a path of sacred service, and find it deeply fulfilling to assist and support people on their healing journeys.
