Massage Therapy is a system of manual therapy preformed by a licensed practitioner that focuses on the application and principles of therapeutic massage to reduce musculoskeletal pain and promote healing, relaxation, and overall health. We offer pre-natal, sports, myofascial, trigger-point, deep tissue, recovery and relaxation massages, both chair and table.

We are excited to annouce that we are now accepting appointments for Massage Therapy with Licensed Massage Therapist, Erika Christoph:

Hello. I am Erika, the Licensed Massage Therapist here at Smith Chiropractic. I grew up in south-west Michigan and graduated from Portage Central High School. I then went on to receive my Massage Certification from Olymipia Career Training Institute, as well as obtained my state license to practice in the state of Michigan. I have been practicing Massage Therapy locally for the past eleven years. In school I studied courses in Kinesiology, Anatomy, and Physiology. I also received a multitude of hands-on experience in various massage modalities. I gravitated towards Myofascial Release, Sports Massage, Prenatal Massage and Trigger Point Therapy. Continuing eduacation is also something I am adamant about because massage therapy is my passion, and I am always looking to further my ability to help my clients.

I live in Portage with my significant other, Brian, and our four-legged kiddos, Bernie and Lucy. Gardening, camping, and being out in nature with our pups are a few of the things I enjoy outside of the therapy room. I am so excited to be working with Dr. Kirn and her amazing staff and look forward to meeting and working with each one of you!

Best Wishes,

Erika Christoph
