Stephanie is a graduate of the 2013 class of Cortiva Institute in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania and has been practicing for seven years in Philadelphia and for a brief time in Chicago. Her personal style consists of a blend of dynamic deep tissue techniques, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release paired with intensive focus in the neck, shoulder, and upper back regions. 

Along with the physical benefits of massage, Stephanie also puts a strong emphasis on the mind and spirit components of well-being and is passionate about providing trauma-informed and trans-competent care for the LGBTQ community.

"Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare." - Audre Lorde



"Stephanie was awesome. Before starting, she went over my profile, going over where it hurts on my body to get a better understanding of how it happened. Let's just say once my massage was done, I felt very relaxed and my pain on my lower back was not as bad. She worked it in. My whole body feels great. I will most definitely return. Thank you so much."

- Beth                   


"Ask for Stephanie!! Don't let her size fool you, this woman is an amazing massage powerhouse. The perfect combination of deep pressure and muscle relaxing massages, she's amazing and I'll be coming back to her as often as possible to her."

- Melissa C.          


"Stephanie did an excellent job paying attention to the areas that needed attention including areas I didn't even know required help. She quickly figured out a variety of problems I had in my back and adeptly addressed them. I like a lot of pressure and she was able to oblige. I'll definitely be back soon." 

- Daniel M.            

"I liked Stephanie's sincere and caring attitude and her commitment to making the session as effective and therapeutic as possible. She always puts everything into her work and genuinely wants to help." 

- Cynthia L.            

"Stephanie takes her time to get to know what's going on and how to best treat you during the massage. She is one of the best massage therapists I've been with in 20+ years. She is down to earth and knowledgeable about health and local resources."
