Hi, I’m Stephanie. When I was about 8 or 9 years old, my parents had a Massage Therapist that came to our house. One day I sat quietly watching the Massage Therapist flow smoothly around the massage table and around my Mom’s body with oiled hands and forearms. When I saw my Mom’s face, so tranquil, softened, relaxed, the lightness of her being, I instantly wanted to be able to do that for her, and for the people around me. I knew I wanted to be able to make people feel better by touch.
I have been practicing massage therapy in the Butte County area for over 9 years with over 550 hours of training and thousands of hands-on hours. The bodywork I do is relaxing, though it is primarily therapeutic as I utilize modalities like Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, Neuromuscular Trigger Point Therapy, Acupressure, Deep Tissue and Ashiatsu. I realized early on in life that I have the gift of healing touch. Maintenance of our bodies, physical, mental, and energetic/spiritual is vital to our well-being. As a Massage Therapist and Energy Practitioner, I feel I am able to be a bridge for people seeking healthy self-care activity and healthy connection with others. I believe we are all deserving of quality health and care no matter our socioeconomic status. I am glad to be a part of the Prana Endura team and to be able to share my massage abilities with this great community that is Chico and the surrounding area. I look forward to continuing my growth and learning of these skills to be able to best serve this wonderful community.
