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 work, I love playing and listening to music, spending time with my wife and daughter, hiking, adventuring, and I’m a huge DIY guy 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 am extremely passionate about 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. He gives you the massage you need to obtain the best results.

Erik Sherwood is excellent at what he does. The ability to find and resolve AND explain why he works on what he does is what makes this experience so unique. I always feel better after a massage but with Erik’s instructions on stretches and techniques to better my body health and wellness I feel more comfortable throughout my day and have made positive changes in my posture and stature.
