Stephanie L Soder, Owner and therapist at Mountain River Therapeutics, has been a Certified Massage Therapist since 1995. She integrates deep tissue massage with Swedish, Myofascial Release, and active range of motion, bringing the client's breath and awareness into the process as much as possible to achieve a lasting, healing release from pain due to tension, injuries, work-related stressors, or everyday life tension
Stephanie is a Certified Massage Therapist licensed in the State of Colorado, a Reiki Master Teacher, and an Intuitive Energy Healer. She is trained in Obsidiana, or Obsidian Mirror, the ancient Mayan technique of looking inward to release trauma and pain. Currently, Stephanie is in a year-long apprenticeship with Leanne Holitza of Insightful Inspirations, learning to teach Energy Awareness and Healing. Stephanie teaches classes in Reiki, Crystal Healing, and Subtle Aromatherapy. She developed Riverstone Therapy, her own unique treatment involving warm and cool riverstones to bring ultimate balance to the client's body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Stephanie's greatest passion is to listen thoroughly to the client's goals and help them release emotions and patterns that are underlying their pain.
"I grew up in Colorado and New Mexico, and have always felt myself drawn to the beautiful rivers of the Rocky Mountains and the Sandia Peaks. In 2009, during a meditation next to the Ceran St. Vrain River, I realized that mountain rivers have always been the source of my own healing. When I received the Reiki II attunement, that same river energy became the source of my ability to bring healing to others.The trees, animals, birds, and insects help out, as do other spirit guides. I add Energy Healing and Reiki into each massage, and also offer Reiki and Energy Healing with sound and crystals as a session on its own."
Peace & Healing,
