Professional Summary
There have been several key moments in my life that have shaped me into the professional I am today!

Read More

Growing up in a military family, studying in China, and struggling with acne throughout the years.

In April 2005, I studied in China at the Wan Zhou college of Traditional Chinese Medicine for a month long intensive program. The college has been recognized by the regional and central government as a leading institution in TCM education and research. I learned many advanced techniques for the treatment of musculoskelatal problems and internal diseases. The experience showed me how important integrative medicine is to achieve a well balanced health care plan. While studying I was also introduced to community healing as a standard practice for affordable healthcare. I saw the substantial benefit from community healing and was inspired to introduce this into my clinical practice.

As a teenager, and also when I was pregnant, I struggled with hormonal acne. I have seen the wonders of Chinese medicine and Skin Care first hand, which has inspired me to share these with others.

As I live, learn, and grow through my own life experiences, my goal is to better enhance my treatments and practical skills for my patients!

Treatment Style
Many people ask me, “what kind of practitioner are you? What do you mainly treat?” I feel that over the past 10 years, I have grown into a “family health practitioner.” I treat infants, kids, adults to the elderly suffering from a wide variety of ailments. Specializing in pain, acupuncture injection therapy,  allergies, fertility, cosmetic facial acupuncture, and pulse diagnosis in clinical practice.

Many people do not try acupuncture out of fear. Fear of needles, pain, and the unknown. Some practitioners advertise acupuncture as “painless.” While I have a gentle touch and needling technique, I emphasizes to each patient that acupuncture is full of “sensations.” As the histamine reaction begins and the body balances, it is normal to feel a myriad of sensations such as: heavy, deep, aching, warmth, cold, and more. If the sensations are ever too intense, the needles can easily be adjusted for the patient’s comfort level.

I provide quality health care with sincerity and compassion for each patient. By creating a treatment plan that addresses each individuals needs and including various modalities of Chinese Medicine. My treatments not only target the symptom, but also the root of illness, and thus restore balance of the mind and body.

I pride myself on educating patients on the importance of preventive health care and wellness treatments!

I’ve gotten to support people, as groups and individuals, on their journeys of healing, mind, body and spirit. My role as a massage therapist is a continuation of that work, as clients share their authentic selves, joys and sorrows, and we work together to ease their aches and expand their well-being.

On a river or a mountain, in a private treatment room or co-managing BC, in some ways, it all feels the same at the core. It is a profound privilege and inspiration to witness and support people through life’s challenges and triumphs.

Treatment Styles
I believe the most effective massage therapy is a collaboration between practitioner and client. With thorough consultations, we co-create each session to support your treatment goals. My specialties include a certification in neuromuscular therapy and advance training in biodynamic craniosacral therapy as well as integrating myofascial, lymph drainage, sports, muscle energy technique and pre/peri-natal massage. I combine the science and artistry of the practice to tailor each session to your needs.

Massage helped her learn how to manage stress, unwind from chronic postural issues, and increase her overall commitment to physical and mental health. Stephanie understands how easily we tend to silence the signals and signs our body provides until we are faced with illness, injury or chronic pain. She believes that by reconnecting with our body we can begin to: reduce pain, recover from injuries, address and confront traumas, both physical and emotional, stored in habitual holding and movement patterns.

Treatment Styles
Stephanie incorporates techniques from a variety of modalities in a flowing cohesive manner, thereby alleviating client fear and stress surrounding deeper treatment work. Her modalities include: neuromuscular therapy, orthopedic massage, sports, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, Phenomenal Touch, prenatal, hot stone and cupping. She has additional training in myofascial release in the style of physical therapist John Barnes, rib dysfunction and Phenomenal Touch (Phenomenal Touch integrates Thai Massage stretches, gentle movement and undulation of the spine). She genuinely enjoys opening people’s eyes to the benefits of regular massage and has a soft spot for elder/geriatric massage.

I’ve been a cook, martial artist, handyman, teacher, photographer, stocker, salesman, manager, and more, but I feel as though I’m still a student of life.

Although I’m formally trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Neuromuscular Therapy, I find that I use Fascial Release and CranioSacral Therapy very often as well. I try to blend these different modalities into a homogenous, and easily acceptable treatment, that is unique to the individual.

Licensed Massage Therapist
Professional Summary
After Graduating from Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art, I felt like something was still missing in my life.

Read More

I began practicing daily yoga and started looking at how to use the healing arts in my own life. This commitment to a healthy and more centered lifestyle was the missing piece for me in finding balance.

To further my endeavors within the healing arts, I started Massage Therapy school in May 2014, fell in love with the practice and graduated school in May of 2015. With my background in fine arts, exploring the creative mind of therapeutic massage, as well as my own personal dedication to health and well being, Massage Therapy was a perfect fit. I have found a way to express myself, while working with others to achieve balance and wellness through the art of healing.
