Erica Mary Johnson

When I was eleven years old, I had a powerful experience that set me on my path. My sister and I were bored, and I had the idea to give her a foot bath. As I was washing and massaging her feet, I entered into a meditative state. There was such a strong feeling of familiarity, as if I had done this thousands of times before. From that day onward I knew my purpose in this life was to help people heal people.

 

I became a Massage Therapist in 2004, and throughout my career I studied many different modalities. But my true passion was working with the subtle energy body, so I transitioned my practice into doing energy healing exclusively. 

 

It brings me great fulfillment to assist my clients in releasing trapped emotions and old patterns stored in their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies, so they can be free to create a healthier and more joyful life.

I consider what I do as a path of sacred service, and am deeply honored to support people on their healing journeys.
