Swedish, Deep Tissue & Trigger Point Massage If you need massage to help with your muscle pain or stress, then Fertile Ground is the place for you. Depending on what you need, Erin can go deep enough to work out your knots or light enough to send you into deep relaxation. She is experienced in working with a variety of conditions including migraines, whiplash, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, and much more.
Breast Cancer Recovery
Massage therapy can be very beneficial after recovery from Breast Cancer. Mastectomy surgery often decreases range of motion in the shoulder but massage can help relieve some of this tension and improve mobility. Lymph drainage is also helpful in reducing the chance of edema after the removal of lymph nodes. Erin Aufdemberge has been trained in massage techniques specific to the needs of a woman recovering from Breast Cancer.
