ERIK’S PERSONAL BIO:
I was born and raised here in Santa Rosa and have been a Sonoma County resident for almost 30 years now. I truly love Sonoma County and our culture here. That’s why being a local business owner is extremely important to me. I really enjoy meeting and developing relationships with other local business owners so I can connect people with other passionate hardworking people. Outside of my work, I love listening to music, playing drums, spending time with my wife and daughter, I love all things movement, and doing DIY stuff around the house.I graduated with honors from the National Holistic Institute in 2010 and started building my massage therapy practice in 2012. During that time I also worked as a Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist and I did that for several years. I love helping others get “unstuck”, whether that change manifests itself physically, mentally, or emotionally. I use massage therapy as a tool to connect with my clients and build a relationship with their body and mind to facilitate change. The techniques I use in my sessions widely range and I pull from my experiences in both my massage therapy and personal training backgrounds. My favorite work is with people with specific issues they are trying to resolve. It allows me to really use my brain during a session and to try and figure out the “puzzle of the body”. I most recently became Level 1 certified in NeuroKinetic Therapy® which has given me a very powerful assessment tool in trying to figure out the “why” behind my client’s symptomatic issues. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to help others through my work and I love what I do.
Erik Sherwood is absolutely phenomenal. Incredibly intuitive and knowledgeable about the human body and possesses the ability to tailor the massage to your needs and wishes. As a chiropractor, I highly recommend his services and this office.
Erik is a gifted and intuitive massage therapist. He is amazing at specifically working with people like myself with neck injuries. I have never had a therapist work so well on relieving my neck issues. He is also a wonderful human being. I highly recommend Erik.
I was highly referred to Erik after a traumatic car accident. His knowledge, intuition & skill have been key parts to my recovery. I was so vulnerable when I first started to see him, both physically & emotionally, and I instantly felt safe and taken care of. I continue to see him for therapeutic massage and always walk away feeling better than when I walked in!
