Erynne is a Nationally Certified Athletic Trainer and Massage Therapist and has been a part of the healthcare field since 2002. She studied Athletic Training and Sports Medicine at Middle Tennessee State University and graduated with honors in 2002. Her degree program focus was the prevention, evaluation and rehabilitation of athletic injuries, which only directed her further toward injury remediation during her massage education. She began massage school at the Holistic Institute for Health while concurrently pursuing her Bachelor’s degree to explore the complimentary value of massage and body work. Erynne completed the massage therapy program also in 2002.
After completing her formal schooling, Erynne worked for two years as a Physical Therapy Aide and was able to reinforce her understanding of the body’s natural healing process and how best to facilitate that through massage and other modalities. She became proficient in exercise prescription, stretching mechanics, and ergonomic evaluation. Chronic and overuse injuries, brought on by sport or other daily use, became the primary target of the style of massage she developed.
A San Diego resident since 2003, Erynne has developed a strong client base of individuals seeking out quality deep tissue and sports massage. Erynne has since developed special training in Lymphatic Drainage Massage (also excellent for post-operative swelling control) and Prenatal Massage to broaden her spectrum. She continues to teach classes in Sport Massage, Anatomy, and Physiology at massage schools through out San Diego and has been voted Competitor Magazine's "Best Of” in the Sport Massage Category every year since 2006. To top things off, Erynne received her Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology from San Diego State University in 2008 with goals to help expand our RU Functional Wellness programs. When not working or teaching, Erynne enjoys swimming, triathlon, road and mountain biking, snowboarding, traveling and spending time with her husband Sean Hill (Rehab United Co-Owner), their beautiful baby girl Raven, and other friends and family.
