Erica Santiago is a licensed massage therapist and a certified yoga teacher. Her business, Ancient Healing Arts Yoga and Dance, is a 1-on-1 healing practice.
Erica has worked in the holistic healing and movement arts fields for ten years. She has an extensive background of the human body in motion and the mind-body connection through in-depth study into yogic philosophy.
Erica is a dance artist and uses movement as a way to access self-inquiry. She has learned that dance, yoga, massage, and meditation are all different tools in her toolbox of healing modalities through the years. Her deepest passion addresses the whole being, body, mind, emotion, and consciousness in an intuitive and creative way that affirms one with his/her most profound knowing of truth for their greatest benefit.
Erica is deeply attuned to the natural world as well as cosmic cycles. Her healing sessions go as deep as her client is ready to go. The cornerstones of Erica’s work are willingness, conscious consent, faith, and curiosity. From this foundation, Erica co-creates actively with her clients to bring them into a profoundly transformative space where they have the choice to bring into conscious awareness that which no longer serves and therefore release at the cellular level.
Multidimensional Massage Therapy sessions are for those individuals who wish to experience deep healing along with bodywork. It is an “all systems check” type of session—ideal for trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and depression.
These sessions address more than just the physical body by holding space for emotional and mental well-being. As guided, Erica uses sound/frequency medicine, hot stones, homemade essential oil blends, and dynamic cupping.
Erica also provides Mindful Movement Therapy sessions which allow the body to unwind deeply held patterns with guided movement and therapeutic touch. For full-spectrum soul healing, Erica draws upon Evolutionary Astrology to truly listen to the soul’s evolutionary healing needs.
It is important to note that these healing sessions are spontaneously guided by higher intelligence and support systems.

Testimonials and Reviews – What patients say about Erica’s Work
“Erica is a highly intuitive and caring massage therapist. Her space is welcoming and peaceful. Her years of dance, yoga, and massage experience all come together in a beautiful way.
As a professional in the fitness world myself I have a lot of experience with the body and tend to be selective about what practitioners I see. Erica’s knowledge of not only the body but also of the mind-body connection is deep. She approaches massage holistically and intuitively, helping her clients tune into their bodies and seeing what they need. I came to Erica in a lot of pain after ignoring back and hip pain for over a year. In just two massages I can already see improvement, and even my knee, which had also been hurting but I had not told her about, feels better than it has in months. I’m so grateful to have found Erica. Her calm and deep approach is exactly what I needed, and I highly recommend her.” – Alayna Benchly, Pilates and Gyrotonics personal trainer
“Intuitive and compassionate are the first words that come to my mind. Her experience and strength were obvious at the start, but her ability to recognize the deeper roots/source of my pain was amazingly “spot on.” Erica tapped into a buried experience of mine, bringing it to the present here and now. It had a pathway to leave. I am now Free of the ten-year chronic/acute pain that I had learned to live with. Anxiety and depression were intertwined with it as well. The joy in my heart now has a bigger place to inhabit.” – Rhianon Renee, Yoga Therapist
“I was fortunately referred to Erica Santiago by a close friend when I was in dire need to reconnect with my body in a healthy, supportive, and energetic way. Erica has an innate talent to intuit into my body and access exactly what I need during her treatment for me each time. Her combined skills, knowledge, expertise, experience, and intuition create a multifaceted “massage therapy” treatment that is unique, authentic, professional, and highly beneficial in my healing journey, as well as maintenance for my well-being. I trust all of her services explicitly. BTW, Erica’s handmade massage butters are so amazing!! I am so grateful for you, Erica!” – Mia Loweree, Certified Akashic Record Consultant
