Eric's Education

I began studying with master teachers in Thailand over 23 years ago and am the only Registered Traditional Thai Yoga Massage instructor in Washington state. I have been to Thailand 13 times and have earned certificates from several Thai institutions.

I am also a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist, Acupuncturist, Certified Viniyoga instructor and Ayurveda health coach. I graduated from the Brian Utting School of Massage in 1994 in Seattle and received a Master of Acupuncture degree from the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2002. As a student, I interned at Harborview Medical Center's HIV/AIDS and Chronic Fatigue clinics.

Prior to studying healing arts in Seattle, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance (with a minor in Sociology) and a Master's degree in Environmental Science. Through teaching and taking continuing education courses, I am able to stay current in my field, refine my skills, and expand my knowledge. I have facilitated workshops for other healthcare providers for over 23 years and am an Approved Continuing Education instructor with National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and Thai Healing Alliance International.

I have presented workshops throughout the Pacific NW, as well as, at the Washington state and national American Massage Therapy Association conventions.

I am also a member of the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

When I'm not teaching or seeing clients, I love spending time exploring the world and staying physically active by practicing yoga, lifting weights, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, growing organic food, and doing photography.
