MY OFFERINGS AT A GLANCE

Dance

Earth cycles
group Mountain biking program

Each year from March to October, I lead group rides that literally follow the Earth's cycles. Experience the different energies of each of the 8 main points of the year within the mountain biking community.

Each year will have a slightly different theme. Rides are no drop pace.

All riders are recommended to have at least 1 year experience riding single track for safety. Questions or want to sign up? Email me erin.align@gmail.com

Mystic rides/mystic hikes

Not a fan of group rides? No problem!

I can help you co-create a ride or hike to deepen connection with the Earth and Self. Intention options: animal and/ or plant messengers; the medicine wheel; connecting with the elements. This option is helpful for people who want more individual attention and feel more comfortable 1:1 vs a group.

PHysical Therapy

 I utilize different techniques based on what each individual needs. I use stretching, movement, and various forms of manual therapy (hands on) which is primarily Myofascial Release and CranioSacral Therapy. I also use strain/ counterstrain, muscle energy techniques, total motion release, and mobilization with movement. The purpose of manual therapy is to assist the patient in making gains they could not otherwise achieve with only exercises or stretches, however patients are provided with a home program to maintain positive changes made in session.  

 

Office hours are by appointment only on Wednesdays and some weekends.

Location: Elk Haven Wellness Center

in Brevard, NC.

online classes

If you're looking for ways to care for your body and mind and aren't local or need something you can do from home, here's what I have to offer:

SELF PACED:

Stretch Damn It!

For active people who need reasons and run-through for stretching and self care techniques. Geared towards cyclists.

LIVE: 

From Burn Out to Balance 

Feel like you just work your entire day? Recognize ways you're already doing self care and where you can improve in the following areas: peace of mind, inspiration, play, heart centered work, body care, community, intuition, rest.

  

Welcome! Watch this video to see what your tailbone says about your ability to hold and own your own power! Are you grounded and centered with your tailbone pointed towards the Earth or are you unknowingly giving your power away?

My goal is to support, treat, and empower my patients. When we are at ease and are in alignment in our bodies, we are  also aligned with what we want and need. Pain or dysfunction can inhibit our ability to tune into our own body sensations and therefore what we need/ want, so my job is to assist the body in becoming clearer so my patients can eventually tune in without needing my assistance. 

Call me for a free 15 minute consult if you'd like to hear more or have any questions. 828-606-2264. We can also set up a consult via Zoom: email me at erin.align@gmail.com

TESTIMONIALS

"Erin is the rare therapist that combines the skills of the mind with the compassion of the heart. Her touch is informed, educated and finely tuned.  Listening carefully to the messages of the body’s tissues, she treats accordingly with sensitivity and deep knowing.  A highly skilled therapist, she continually seeks to hone her craft: the sign of an awesome practitioner."

- Cari R.

"I was referred to Erin after a car accident which had resulted in a bad concussion. I had headaches, dizziness, insomnia and depression as a result. I saw Erin for 8 sessions and the treatments were relaxing and wonderful and the results were amazing. I felt 100% restored as a result of my treatments. I had had persistent wrist pain for almost a year prior due to de quairvains tendinitis and as an added bonus that has completely resolved after some focused sessions as well. Erin is a talented therapist and I highly recommend her to anyone having pain, headaches, or sleep issues."

- Sarah P.

"I came to Erin hoping to find relief for a neck injury I sustained from my exercise routine. An hour and a half session left me floating on clouds, but more importantly, the irritating neck pain I had been experiencing for the past month had melted away. Also, Erin has amazing hands! She's gentle, but also has this strength that makes you feel you're in good hands. I highly recommend her services. "
