I love to dance, to move, to create. This brings me so much joy! I've found the greatest freedom of movement and creativity through healing old patterns, traumas and pain, healing not only my physical body, as you might think is critical for dancing, but also working with the emotional, mental and energetic aspects - a holistic approach to healing.
I've realized through my training that we all have trauma. Growing up, I didn't realize how I was affected by my parents divorce - I thought I was fine, unfazed by it. It wasn't until I understood the nervous system that the tears started flowing. At age 8, my nervous system was in a freeze state, unable to feel. It was a natural, intelligent protective response. In relationships throughout my life, my partners would tell me that they didn't know what was happening for me. I wasn't very expressive, and it took me a while to understand what I was feeling. I was numb, and unaware how to thaw. It's like I was hiding behind a frosted glass window. I considered myself to be "simple" and I was grateful for my easy, pleasant life. Except for my lack of connection in relationships. That was the hardest thing.
Finally, in my Biodynamic training, someone punched a hole through that frosted glass, revealing a bright, colorful world. Since then, I've broken through the window and stepped in to an ever-brightening, beautiful world. My self-awareness continues to deepen, allowing me to recognize and process emotions with ease. Trust in myself is increasing, which allows me to trust others more. My relationships with family, friends and partners has deepened. I've learned how to self-regulate when I feel anxious or tired, how to recognize when I'm empathizing with someone else's pain, and how to deal with that. My nervous system has a broader capacity for a wide range of experiences, which allows me to be more present. These days, connection with others comes with more ease and joy.

"I've been receiving care from Erin for several months. I've received 100's of massage in my life, and find Erin offers a quality of touch that is uniquely nurturing and so lovely. I feel so met and held by her caring and attentive presence. I really appreciate her depth of expertise from anatomical knowledge to energy healing, and across diverse modalities. Overall, her gentle care provides me comprehensive support for body, mind, and spirit that helps me on my path of healing, growth, and self development. I'm so grateful for her." - Eros
"Erin has fantastic technique and I am very happy that I found her. After a slip/fall on the ice left me with a splitting headache and shoulder pain, she was able to get me fixed up in just one session. Her rates are reasonable and her massage room is very relaxing. I look forward to seeing her again soon!" - Melissa
"I've had several massages from Erin and I've never been disappointed! She is an amazing massage therapist with an intuitive body knowledge which allows her to always gauge exactly what my body needs - even when I don't know myself! She also has a very calm and relaxing presence which sets the perfect tone for a massage. I prefer quiet to talking during massages for the most part, and she has always respected that. Plus, when I was working through some chronic pain in my shoulders from working at a computer all day, she took the time after the massage to give me stretches and exercises (without making me feel guilty for my bad posture!)" -Alex
"Loved it! The massage was super relaxing.....even though I had just met her, she was so calm and easy to be with that I felt comfortable from the start. The massage was wonderful - I will definitely go back when I get the chance and will give her number to my friends in Boulder." -Varuni
"Just had one of the best massages ever! Erin has a sweet caring spirit and a calm peaceful easy going personality. She was communicative enough to learn what I needed but not so much as to keep me from relaxing. She is clearly skilled and genuinely cares for her clients, giving that extra effort to ensure I got what I needed from the massage. I will be seeing her again and would highly recommend her to anyone!" -Richard
"I've had several sessions with Erin Casey. Her work was very professional, and beneficial for me. I went to her for lower back pain. I walked out of her office very relaxed and my back felt great. I highly recommend Erin." -Deb
"Erin did an amazing job of first discussing and really listening to my goals before the session. During the massages, she translated those objectively into her work. Erin's intuition into what my body needed was impressive. I felt much more in balanced and relaxed. I look forward to our work together and would highly recommend her. Not only is she talented, but flexible in her scheduling and very professional." -Kelsey
