2019 Best of the Boat massage therapist: Erica Olson, Iron + Silk Bodywork & Movement Therapy

For Erica Olson, it’s all in the hands.

For 10 years, she’s been helping clients get rid of aches and pains and perform their best, first through her practice at Heartfire Massage and now at Iron and Silk Body and Movement Works.

She recently adopted the new name to call attention to the movement focus her therapies have.

“There’s an inverse relationship between stability and mobility, and the sweet spot is right where we want the human body to be,” Olson says, adding iron represents stability while silk represents mobility. 

Each client gets an individualized plan based on what’s affecting their body, be it repeat stress, injuries or surgery recovery.

Olson says her passion to learn more about how our bodies work translates into better care for her clients.

“The human body is fascinating, and I love learning more about it from a variety of disciplines,” she says. “I like to take that knowledge and incorporate it into my body work.”
