Ericka Mira joins Headline with an impressive array of skills. From an early age she had a love of dance, which developed into performance and later dance teaching. She studied at QUT in the fine arts and dance program, gaining a degree in Health Science.
She continued more in-depth study of the body, with a physiotherapy degree awarded from ACU. Her previous physiotherapy roles have been in providing treatment for children with neuromuscular conditions and general musculoskeletal issues within a general private practice. She has been a Pilates instructor for eight years and is a trained meditation teacher. Ericka has an interest in managing pain through both physical therapies and meditation, using its central nervous system modulation effects.
Having developed a keen interest in head and neck conditions, she has been mentored by Kerry Read. Ericka then sought out the work of ground breaking physiotherapist Mariano Rocobado, to develop a solid base in head, neck and jaw treatment. Finding he no longer teaches locally, Ericka took herself off to Spain to take his Cranio-Cervical course in Spanish, such is her dedicaton to excellence.
She is trained in Dry Needling, Watson Headache Management and Cranio-Sacral Therapy. She has also trained in Vocal Unloading with Performance Medicine in Melbourne. These skills combined with her innate understanding of how the body works and a naturally empathetic nature, make her a perfect fit for the Headline Team.
