Exercise Physiology with Erin Parish | Clarity Massage and Wellness

Exercise Physiology with Erin Parish

As an AEP, Erin’s main goal is to educate you on your body, the way it moves and how this can improve your life in a BIG way. She wants to see you doing all the things you want to do in your life – that may be as simple as playing with your kids, getting the housework done, perhaps it’s running a marathon or getting back into footy or mountain bike riding.

In addition to her One on One Exercise Physiology offerings (which you can learn more about here) Erin offers these specifically tailored small group classes:

  • You need reminding and accountability for doing your stretches and foam rolling

  • Manage muscle soreness, stiffness, injuries and physical restrictions

  • Better breathing! Which means better performance, reduced fatigue and improved stress management.
  • Maintain or improve range of motion of joints and do so with control and stability.

The nitty-gritty

  • All equipment is included – foam rollers, mats, balls etc
  • No need to worry about getting sweaty – great if you need to dash off to work
