"Keep your inner light glowing"

Of American-Eurasian heritage, Erica grew up in India and the States. She was a pioneer in the western world of acupuncture and holistic health. She began her studies in 1975 in England where she was introduced to principles of living in accordance with natural cycles and healing of bodymindspirit She was lucky to be on the faculty of Tai Sophia from its beginnings with colleagues who have engendered a paradigm shift in health care that embraces integrative medicine and natural support for healing. Erica taught for many years in the Master's degree program (now MUIH) and was eventually given recognition of Faculty Emeritus.

She has studied with different Masters from East and West, travelling to China for 3 1/2 months and working in hospitals there. She also studied Japanese styles of acupuncture. She particularly appreciates palpation and touch as a diagnostic tool and healing modality. She is a Reiki Master and has studied many forms of energy work which she incorporates into her sessions. Her current study is in biodynamic craniosacral therapy. She believes these are modalities that assist a person to move into a more meditative state and open to deeper healing. A core part of her work is to assist a person's transformation, healing emotional scar tissue - as it shows up in physiology, tending one's life force and allowing a person to come to their own state of health.

She has taken courses in Chinese herbology and particularly likes topical herbs. She is also a certified Integrative Reflexologist. She believes that holistic health and these modalities should be available to everyone.
