Erica Mary Johnson

When I was eleven years old, I discovered my gift for using my hands to help others heal. From that time onward, my life's purpose was clear to me. I started studying various forms of bodywork in my early twenties, and I became a Licensed Massage Therapist in Hawaii in 2004, and a Registered Massage Therapist in Toronto, Canada in 2010. I love massage, and throughout my career I studied many different modalities. But I was never a typical massage therapist because focusing on the physical body alone seemed incomplete. My real passion and gift was working with the subtle energetic body which encompasses all levels of our being, and in my experience works on a deeper level than massage by itself.

Now I have shifted the focus of my practice to energy healing primarily. I still may incorporate some massage or craniosacral techniques if needed by my clients, but my main focus is identifying and transmuting root causes of the issues for which they are want help.

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