Daily Inspiration: Meet Erica Taylor

Today we’d like to introduce you to Erica Taylor. 

Hi Erica, so excited to have you on the platform. So, before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today.
Erica Taylor is the Owner of BODY by Erica Taylor LLC, located in Sandusky, Ohio. From a young girl to adulthood, she has always resorted to holistic at-home remedies before using medicine or going to the hospital. In 2013, Erica opened Red Light Studio, a dance and fitness studio. The studio allowed Erica to narrow in on her true passion; healthy lifestyles, natural products, and holistic remedies! 

Erica’s love and admiration for the human BODY grew stronger each year as she focused on sculpting her own body naturally. She believed in her vision to help others create their quality bodies! 

Erica has traveled the US training in different states to perfect her craft becoming certified in the following: 

Body Contouring & Sculpting, Body Detoxification, Vacuum & Wood Therapy, Eyelash Extensions, Life Coaching, Reflexology, and Practical Reiki. 

BODY by Erica Taylor provides a superior spa excursion for both men and women; we give our clients a personalized, holistic, hands-on experience filled with beauty & detoxification services, combined with the benefits of cutting-edge technology! Our goal is to make anyone look good and, more importantly, feel even better. 

Our holistic wellness spa first opened January 31, 2021, in a 400sq ft two-room office space in the old corporate health building located on the South Side of Sandusky. In 5 short months, BODY expanded into a 900sq ft suite in the same building! After our expansion and successful year in that space, in April of 2022, we relocated to a beautiful, double window front suite in downtown Sandusky. 

Among the services it offers: 

• Red light therapy: Incorporating different heat-related techniques, the therapy helps people break down hard-to-lose or stubborn fat, such as “love handles” or “kangaroo pouches.” It also stimulates collagen production for smoother and tighter skin.

• Wood massage therapy: Helping to better sculpt the body, this therapy uses wooden handheld tools, which can reduce and/or eliminate cellulite, increase lymphatic circulation, reduce wrinkles and alleviate stress.

• Infrared Sauna detoxification: Allowing clients to burn upward of 1,500 calories per session, sauna treatments can also help repair damaged tissues, which help a person feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

BODY also provides eyelash extensions, reiki – energy balancing, vacuum therapy (Brazilian Butt Lift), teeth whitening, facials, waxing, massages, waist training, nail services, and yoni steam.

“Everything we do offer is mostly holistic based. We can be an alternative to surgery or a maintenance for plastic surgery. Body contouring allows you to feel more confident about yourself without any risks or downtime. 

Our team is licensed and certified in all services offered. All services have been researched and proven to work elsewhere. No matter what you get, you will leave with a better overall state of your mind, body, and soul.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back, would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The biggest challenge with opening a body contouring spa is people do not believe it works, let alone get same-day results. Yes, you can get same-day results. But body contouring is not for everybody. Different body types get different results. We encourage healthy eating, drinking the recommended water intake, and regular exercise when using our services. In addition, body contouring is like anything else in the service industry; it requires maintenance. You must continue your services for a period of time to maintain your results.
