Stephanie has experience as both a patient and a provider of various therapeutic modalities. In 2002 she was in a near fatal car accident & struggled to manage her chronic pain. After completing about year of intense physical therapy, she still had reoccurring symptoms. Her doctor recommended yoga as something to help relieve her chronic tension. Little did she know that would lead her down a path that would change her life.
She wanted to learn more on the bodies ability to heal naturally, by living a balanced healthy lifestyle. Stephanie attended the University of Texas at San Antonio where she earned her bachelors degree in kinesiology (the study of human movement). In college, she earned the nickname 'That Yoga Chick'. For her, yoga was the key to helping her manage her pain and she wanted to share this profound knowledge with others. This inspired her to complete her 200hr yoga teacher training. Since then, she's had intensive trainings under internationally recognized teachers Seane Corn, Ana Forrest, Kathryn Budig & Sadie Nardini. These trainings, along with her kinesiology degree give her an extensive knowledge of both anatomy & physiology; which are taught as fundamentals in her classes.
In 2010, she became a licensed massage therapist so that she could take her brand of movement therapy to the next level. After years of practice and searching for the most innovative and effective modalities in the field of bodywork, she became a medical massage practitioner. Stephanie specializes in neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization & kinesiology taping. She is also a certified neurostim MPS practitioner. Stephanie is also a proud member of the American Massage Therapy Association.
