Stephanie offers gentle, relaxing massage combined with esoteric anatomy. She has studied anatomy in depth and complements her understanding of the body with massage and Reiki in order to peel away the layers to help people manage their psycho-somatic pain. She is also trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Lymph massage, Trigger Point, Myofascial stretching, and pulls from her massage toolbox as needed to meet every *body* where it wants to be met.
Her belief is that physical pain stores emotional trauma. Through her bodywork, she works with you collaboratively to excavate the emotional pain that is stored in the physical body. Stephanie aims to re-activate your nervous system and reset proprioceptors in the body to build new mind-body connections. She combines her esoteric anatomy knowledge to help you break out of the physical and metaphysical patterns that may cause your pain.

“Massage has done a great deal for me besides just being a physical career. Its teachings have gone beyond the massage table and crept into my life spiritually. Practicing massage allows me to deeply connect with my own body, to have a better sense of patience, and challenges me to grow in all parts of my life. I love my job with my whole heart, and am grateful to show up for it every single day.”
