I decided to change careers and leave corporate life. My new goal was to find a way to give back and to help others, so in 2016, I completed an accelerated massage therapy program. It was an intense experience but I knew I was in the right field the moment I performed my first massage.

To fast track my learning, I hired one of the school’s instructors for extra tutoring, and during one of those sessions; I learned about Erik Dalton’s techniques and experienced them for myself. I felt immediate relief in an area that had been bothering me for years. It was an instant game changer & I knew immediately I wanted to learn everything Erik Dalton had to offer… every tool, every technique, and every assessment, I wanted to learn it all right there and then. Unfortunately, I had to be patient and get my massage therapy license before I could begin Erik’s MMT program. It took time to build my practice, so it wasn’t until 2019 that I was able to attend my first Erik Dalton workshop.

I was completely blown away by the live event. Client after client popped into my mind as I was learning the techniques, and when I was shut down during Covid, it allowed me time focus on his online courses.

I have practiced many of the Myoskeletal techniques on clients over the last few years and each of them has greatly benefited from Erik’s work. Clients walk away with less pain and more ROM than they’ve had in years and I’m developing quite a reputation in my community.

Recently, I completed my last live workshop with Nate Fay and it so much fun being back in class with fellow therapists again. I’m so excited to have earned my Master Myoskeletal Therapist certification and so are my clients. I will continue learning from Erik through his newsletters and blogs and I look forward to always being his student.
