Erin McIntire- Certified Massage and Movement Therapist, LMT
Erin’s love of massage began at the young age of thirteen when she became the resident massage therapist for her family in 1983. She spent the next ten years informally studying and observing the benefits of touch on the human(and animal) body.
With the birth of her first son in 1993, she was inspired to begin her lifelong love and practice of Yoga-the Art of Embodiment. She has worked with many wonderful teachers exploring a variety of forms of hatha yoga, including-Iyengar, Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Kundalini and Vini Yogas. She has found the greatest gifts in self-study and personal practice.
In 1998, she expanded her studies at The Phoenix Center for Health Excellence in Denver. This 5 year apprenticeship and certification in The Principles of Intelligent Movement® included Polestar Pilates, Gyrotonic Expansion System®, Gyrokinesis®, and the fundamentals of Feldenkrais. In 2000, Erin began her formal study of Massage Therapy and she continues her studies to this day. She holds certification in Thai Yoga Massage, Ayurvedic Massage and Reflexology. She has been licensed to practice massage in the state of Colorado since 2009.
The birth of her 2nd son in 2014 once again inspired her to dive deeper into the potential for health and healing in the human body. Her approach to Massage and Movement is based on the ideal of aging gracefully through mindful practice. Exploring the principles of gravity, posture & alignment, breath and intention; she works to bring about relaxation and a sense of ease in our experience of being alive in this amazing body.
For over 30 years, Erin has been studying and practicing Massage and Movement Arts, holding space for the healing potential inherent in all of us. Erin is delighted to be joining the Sunshine family and will be offering massage and movement sessions. In this fast-paced, frenzied world of high-speed technology and modern living, she invites us all to slow down and try softer…because a relaxed body can heal itself.
