Melt away the pain & tension with a
deep, healing massage.
Since 1995, I have been integrating deep tissue massage with various techniques including Swedish, Myofascial Release, and active range of motion to increase flexibility, decrease soreness, and release tension. In 2010, I became Reiki certified, allowing a greater sense of peacefulness to come into the work. Most recently, I created Riverstone Therapy, a unique and powerful combination of Hot and Cold Stone Massage with Reiki and Intuitive Energy Work. When you receive a healing massage you are increasing circulation, decreasing inflammation, stimulating your immune system, lowering your blood pressure, and calming your nervous system.
Exceptional massage therapy includes more than just kneading muscles. The body consists of layers of muscle, connective tissue, fascia, energy channels, and bioenergic fields. We are a combination of physical, mental, emotional, and spitirual beings. An intuitive massage therapist is able to feel through all these layers to clear congestion and release stuck patterns and bring about a sense of peaceful relaxation along with ease of movement.
Reiki is a form of alternative healing that uses Universal (Rei) Life Force Energy (Ki) to completely relax the client and promote the body's own innate healing process. The therapist places their hands on or near the client's body and requests that the energy flow to where it is needed most. Once energy is flowing freely in the body, the client is left feeling profoundly relaxed, more joyful, content, and at ease.
Stephanie combines Reiki with crystals, subtle Aromatherapy, and sound to achieve the best possible treatment.
Riverstone Therapy is a unique healing modality that utilizes both hot basalt and cold marble and quartz stones; Reiki Healing Energy, and Intuitive Massage to relax and stretch muscles and connective tissue; improve circulation and lymphatic flow; decrease pain and inflammation in the joints, muscles, and connective tissue; balance masculine and feminine energies; increase energetic sensitivity and awareness; and reduce stress to create an unparalleled relaxing, healing experience.
