Stephanie has always been an active individual and understands the importance of manual
therapy and taking care of your body. As a massage therapist, she strives to create an effective
treatment plan and works with the client to rehabilitate them, during what can be a difficult time,
by supporting and helping them get back to the best they can be. She has a background in
treating a variety of conditions including: concussions, strains, sprains, tendinitis, patellofemoral
pain syndrome and TMJ.

Prior to becoming a massage therapist, she obtained a neuroscience degree, which provides a
deeper scientific understanding in regards to brain injury and function. As well as a background
in the mechanisms of the body’s neurological functioning and how the brain and body are largely
integrated for a successful recovery.
