Sherrin brings over 20 years of experience in the Health and Wellness industry. This and her many years of study of the known effects of essential oils has provided her with the knowledge to formulate the Attract Essentials company’s flagship product “Ritual 1, Intention-Based Aromatherapy” and her expanded “Root, Branch & Blossom Line” which offers all natural, safe, gentle and effective products for home and body.
Sherrin began her career as a Dance Major at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University and graduated NYU’s Gallatin Department in 1990 with a B.A. in Dance and minor in Non-Traditional Injury Rehabilitation. It was here that it all began. Here where she discovered that the success rate of holistic therapies such as Movement Re-education techniques and Ideokinesis compared favorably to traditional methods of injury rehabilitation. Sherrin became a wellness professional teaching fitness classes in 1987 and went on to becoming a private trainer.
1999 was a turning point when she graduated from the Swedish Institute and was licensed in Massage Therapy by New York State. Since then, she has developed her own technique “Informative Bodywork®” which incorporates posture, placement, and movement concepts from dance, tai chi, movement re-education techniques, sports, personal training, fitness class instruction, with the breath, imagery and visualization. She took her first class in essential oils with Evelyn Li, LAc, a teacher then at the Swedish Institute, and a whole world of fragrances opened up for her. Before that, she’d learned to stay away from harsh chemicals and synthetically fragranced products which kicked off the allergies she’d grown up with and turned to and become accustomed to natural and unscented products.
From the moment she left her first essential oil class feeling better than she’d ever felt before, Sherrin was hooked. She became wholly absorbed by any books, studies and articles she could find on essential oils, buying up new essential oils and mixing her own massage oils according to therapeutic benefit as well as fragrance. Since then, Sherrin has taken many classes and dog-eared many books and found her way to studying with Robert Tisserand, one of the most well respected educators in the field, and became a Certified Aromatherapist through Andrea Butje’s Aromahead Institute.
Touch Fitness, Informative Bodywork® is licensed massage therapy that uses Sherrin’s unique blend of imagery, visualization, informative touch, hand blended signature Touch Fitness Massage oils and Intention-Based Aromatherapy™ to transport you, your mind and your body to the world of movement freedom and wellness.
In 2005 she visited Miami Beach and fell in love with the palm trees, access to sky and beach lifestyle. In 2006 she went to The Educating Hands School of Massage in Miami and became additionally licensed in Florida. Finally in 2018 she moved to Normandy Isles with husband Dave Harman where they work on music together in their spare time. She currently runs her Massage Therapy practice in Miami Beach and works on the Attract Essentials lines with partner, Rodd Marcus.
Sherrin continues to add to her knowledge base and explore opportunities in business, massage therapy, aromatherapy and spa communities. She is a Level II Certified member of the NAHA (National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy) and past Membership Secretary, Board Member and Editor of NYSSMMT (The New York Society of Medical Massage Therapists).
