NICOLE ERWIN

Nicole graduated from The Cumberland Institute in Brentwood, Tennessee and has been practicing Massage Therapy for over 14 years. She is proficient in Deep Tissue, Swedish, Four-Handed, Acupressure, and Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM). Known as the “Glute Queen,” Nicole is known for her exceptional work on the gluteal muscle group. She has found that this important area of the body that connects our upper to our lower is sadly often the most neglected by many Massage Therapists. Her technique combining Trigger Point Therapy and breath work allows the release of these muscles that often contribute to low back and hip pain.

Throughout Nicole’s career she has worked with NFL, NBA, and NHL players as well as runners and average-joes. She combines her unique skillset in order to address each of her client’s needs, tailoring each session to the individual. Nicole equally enjoys offering the Lymphatic Drainage Massage modality for clients who may suffer with allergies, edema (swelling), and auto-immune diseases.

ERICA HEIDEN

Erica is a Licensed Massage Therapist and Reiki Master born and raised in Naperville, Illinois. She moved to the Nashville area in 2016 looking for a fresh start and a new career. She attended Cumberland Institute of Holistic Therapies, where she not only found a new career path, she also found a new outlook on her life and how she could help others. She truly believes that the mind, body and spirit are all connected and we hold our emotions and memories in our bodies.

Erica grew up competing in gymnastics and cheerleading, and benefited from receiving massage starting at a young age. Her active lifestyle continued as she decided to pursue a career in the music industry and a was a professional singer for 13 years. She also found a love of the food service industry and enjoyed establishing and cultivating relationships with regular customers. When considering her next career move, massage seemed like a natural fit for Erica because it combined her love of people with a way to help them in an active way.

Erica’s love of massage comes from the work that can be achieved on a massage table. It brings her great joy to utilize two of her favorite modalities, Swedish and Reiki, and use them to create a relaxing experience with her clients. The biggest compliment to her is to see the smile and look of relief and contentment after a session.

When she’s away from the massage table, Erica is an avid dog lover with plans to adopt one in the next few months. She also enjoys movies, reading and her favorite hobby of all…napping!
