Hi! My name is Erin Owens.

For a long time I thought about becoming a paleontologist. I loved the idea of discovering something ancient within the earth. But once I received a massage from a friend who was going to school to become a Massage Therapist, I knew that massage was what I wanted to do for a living. The idea that you can help someone, whether they are suffering discomfort or stressed, in a myriad of ways is attractive to me. I love how each session is different and presents its own challenges, and it makes me feel good to help someone feel better.
I graduated from Blue Ridge School of Massage and Yoga in 2012. After receiving my license, I took on a full time job as a Licensed Massage Therapist and learned so much. Among my favorite modalities to use are Strain Counterstrain (SCS) and Neural Reset Therapy (NRT). Both are deep tissue techniques, but aren’t as invasive as other types of deep tissue. My typical massage combines the best of all the different therapies I offer. A soothing experience of relaxation incorporated with other techniques to focus on the deep tension, chronic pain and mobility issues you are dealing with. By blending therapies I can customize your massage to your individual needs and offer you that much needed relief you have been searching for. I am familiar with Medical Massage, Pre-event and Post-event Sports massage, Prenatal massage, Swedish and Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release and Trigger Point Therapy. Essential oils are optional, but for many it helps them slip into a deeper sense of relaxation.
I live in Christiansburg, Virginia, about a mile away from the Christiansburg Aquatic Center. I have experience working with athletes of all types, whether you are a swimmer, gymnast, a cyclist or a marathon runner. I share my home with my loving fiancé Logan who is a personal trainer and who has been very supportive of me spreading my wings and branching out on this journey of owning my own business.
I also share my home with a furry friend named Icho. (Don’t worry, he won’t be a bother during your visit. I keep my office completely separate from the rest of my home, so pet dander and fur won’t be an issue. While you are here he will be outside or contained.)
In my free time I love to sculpt clay, carve stone, enjoy a fire under the stars, and rent boats at Claytor Lake. Recently I have started growing my own food so it’s been a challenge but rewarding at the same time. I also like to study history and current events, and listening to or watching people like Gregg Braden, pioneers in the realm of science. Having my own business has been a long time dream come true. I love working with the people I meet and there’s nothing more satisfying than being able to help someone feel better, especially in this crazy world we live in now.
