Meet Erik De Leon, Advanced Therapist

Erik De Leon graduated from the World School of Massage and Holistic Healing Arts in San Francisco in 2011. He trained simultaneously as a massage therapist and yoga instructor, and he incorporates a synthesis of these as he finds the physical distress points of his client — pain, soreness, inflammation. He then employs an effective system of soft tissue manipulations to release tension and help circulate oxygen-rich blood into muscles and tissues. Erik believes in the body’s inherent healing abilities and that bodywork can help tip the scale in favor of natural restoration to health and normality. At Massage Therapy Center Palo Alto, he offers Clinical Deep Tissue Massage, Deep Work Massage, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, and Trigger Point Release.

In his free time, Erik enjoys burying himself in classic novels over a cup of coffee. A Bay Area native, he loves the sun and beach and also enjoys rollerblading in the urban landscape where he lives.
