Ericka M. Hakanson
Owner, Massage Therapist, Reiki Master Teacher
My name is Ericka M Hakanson. I have been a Massage Therapist since 1995. I am an NAMT certified member. Like many of you I have traveled many paths to get out where I am today.
Here is my story:
I graduated from Center for a Balanced Life in 1995. During my time at massage school I studied Swedish Massage Techniques, Reflexology, Polarity, Sports Massage, Pre. /Post-natal, Acupressure, and of course Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology. I received my National Certification upon graduation.
Continuing education includes: Hot stone massage, SET training (structural energetic therapy). Kinesiology, Aromatherapy, Healing Touch.
I AM a powerful energy healer. I know this because I am absolutely brilliant at feeling, moving & transforming & shifting energy.
I AM a total authority/expert on my soul’s truth and helping others identify their soul’s truth.
On August 1, 2020, I launched Serenity Spiritual coaching!
A 6-week program to get you better aligned and bring more Serenity to your life.
Pure Serenity's Salt and Selenite Sanctuary! Is a dream come true for me! It is the first of its kind!
It was part of manifesting my dreams & I can teach you how to do the same.
On my journey I have had the privilege of working with a variety of people with a variety of health issues. I work on people of all ages, from infants to the elderly. Every Wednesday I work with the elderly & hospice patients. With my chiropractic background I believe that massage & chiropractic go hand in hand. I work closely with chiropractors. I do insurance billing for personal injury & workers compensation cases. Athletes, personal trainers & weekend warriors have benefited from my massage techniques as well. I do enjoy working with pregnant women, in fact my massage table is a prenatal table. Some clients are just looking to relax & de-stress, I do that too! After all my business name is Pure Serenity!
I have created a tranquil environment where everyone can feel comfortable & relaxed.
Each client is a blessing to me. I work hard to honor the mind, body & spirit of each individual. When you come in for a massage with me you will have a massage specifically designed for your unique needs, not just some generic massage.
With my years of experience and educational background I can offer many techniques to benefit your well-being.
I believe I am a natural born healer. God has given me a gift & it is my honor & privilege to share my gift with you.
