Eric Moya began as a massage therapist in 1996. He taught at the Crystal Mountain school of massage in Albuquerque, NM for 8 years and taught a variety of subjects including anatomy/physiology, ethics, CranioSacral therapy, and others. He also led rotations of massage students through clinical hospital settings at that time. In 1999-2000, he completed his advanced training in CranioSacral Therapy and became certified to teach for the Upledger Institute, and began traveling and teaching internationally. In 2004, he completed his master's degree in marriage, family, and child psychotherapy and began seeing psychotherapy clients as well. With those backgrounds, his deepest passions lie in the connection between the body, mind, and spirit.

In 2008, Eric moved to California where he worked as the Director of Education for the Esalen Institute for 5 years. The projects of the past few years have included being project lead on the design and implementation of a global clinical mentorship program for the International Alliance of Healthcare Educators as well as the development of a new CranioSacral therapy course called CST working with Chronic Depletion. Eric currently resides in Monterey, California while his private practice locations are in Carmel and San Francisco, California. 

Beyond maintaining a busy private practice and lecture schedule, Eric is the founder and publisher for The Idea Crucible, an online magazine based around bodymindspirit integration and therapy.
