About Me

Eric Nyman – The Pain Specialist

Licensed Massage Therapist (L.M.T.)
Neuromuscular Therapist (N.M.T.)

Emergency Muscle Therapy
I’m a state licensed massage therapist specializing in treating clients with chronic and acute pain. I am certified in neuromuscular massage therapy, also known as trigger point therapy.

Education and Experience
I received my certification in massage therapy and neuromuscular therapy at Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy. I have 1150 hours of training and graduated in 1995. I have been helping relieve my clients of pain since 1996 in Rockford, Illinois.

I have lived in Rockford since 1982 and graduated from East High School in 1989. I also graduated from Rockford College in 1993 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a minor in Sociology.

My dad retired in 2008 after being a professor at Rockford College for over 25 years. My mom is a retired pastor.

I have a real passion for health and fitness and enjoy spending time helping clients with these areas.

I love the outdoors and get outside every chance I can. Some of my hobbies include weight lifting, disc golf, and bicycling (both road and mountain). I also have owned and love old muscle cars, and motorcycles.

My first 24 hour challenge, The National 24 Hour Challenge, I successfully completed over 250 miles. This event is one that I have looked forward to doing.  I really enjoy cycling in any form from road to mountain biking and even urban cycling enjoying the Rockford and surrounding community.

I go to a chiropractor and get a massage from other massage therapists typically once a week to help me maintain my level of fitness and general health.

I hope this shows my commitment to my own health and fitness and my commitment to be a role model to the people I work with.
