Eric Smith LMBT #MA 72094
I, Eric Smith have been in the medical/chiropractic/medical spa industry for over ten years and am very well-versed in anatomy and physiology. I also have a strong knowledge of how medical doctors and chiropractors treat ailments of the body. As a massage therapist I have worked mostly in medical and chiropractic practices. I have however worked for two award winning resort spas including The Emerald Grande in Destin, FL and Grandover Golf Resort in Greensboro, NC. I have personally found that the medical side of massage is much more rewarding. Why? On the medical side patients come in with different ailments and the doctor will refer those that I can help through massage. Sometimes this may be the first time a person has ever had a massage. Given the chance to show a new client how much better they can feel after a seemingly simple massage is quite worthwhile. An experienced massage therapist can make a huge difference in your health and there are many studies that have proven this point. I have outlined many of these on the ‘benefits’ page. There are different types of massage and massage therapists out there. Do not be discouraged if you don’t find the right one at first, or if your first massage isn’t what you expected. My massage style is not for everyone and if you’re looking for a “fluffy” or “frufru”massage you probably won’t find it here. Not that I can’t do it, I just think a massage should actually do something more than just increase circulation and skin tone. I generally provide moderate to deep pressure, “medical” style, utilizing a variety of different techniques that are customized for each client’s needs. My clients range in age from 18 to 60+ and are approximately 65% female – 35% male. I have helped them recover from medical conditions ranging from carpal tunnel syndrome to car accidents under medical supervision.
I am married to an awesome esthetician at Chickcity Skincare and have two super children all while living in beautiful Navarre Beach, Florida. I haven’t always been a massage therapist. In fact, I was a captain in the offshore oilfields and a High Speed Ferry Captain that ran from Ft. Myers, Florida to Key West. Working offshore I had a 2 week on-2 week off schedule and got bored sitting at home for two weeks. My wife suggested I go to school for massage and do that while I was home, because you can set your own schedule. Fast forward and I have been doing this full-time now for over a decade and am finishing up my bachelor’s degree in IT/Computer Programming. I also do IT work on the side from building websites like this one to building Home/Business Networks.
