When Erica was 12 she decided she wanted to do some form of manual therapy after many conversations with her family chiropractor about the intricacies of what can effect the musculoskeletal system. These conversations always fascinated her and a decade later, she graduated from Endeavour College with a Bachelor of Health Science (Myotherapy).
Erica's degree has given her a range of skills including dry needling, cupping, mobilisations, trigger point therapy, sports injury management and rehabilitation. She has also gone on to do her Kinetic Link Training (Level 1) to improve her exercise prescription skills.
Erica has always found the most rewarding part of her job to be working alongside clients to help them to reach their long term goals and this has led to a love for injury prevention, management and rehabilitation.
Erica grew up trying her hand at a range of sports but always found herself back playing netball. Now after having her first child in 2019, Erica has found it easiest to maintain her fitness by going for jogs with her partner while pushing her son in the pram.
