Stephen graduated from the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy with a desire to help others recover from their injuries and physical discomforts. He understands how debilitating it can be to live with pain, so he strives to support people on their journeys to recovery. Stephen’s goal is to assist his clients in overcoming the physical manifestations of stress or tension, and to create customized treatment plans that address these or specific injuries, so his clients may feel as healthy and whole as they possibly can.
Stephen was mentored by respected Registered Massage Therapists on a variety of techniques which he applied in a student massage clinic, community outreach programs, and local spas for over two years. He has provided treatment for a large range of conditions including: muscle strain, rotator cuff injury, shoulder impingement, tendonitis, IT band friction syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, whiplash, headaches, sinusitis, chronic stress, and postural imbalances.
Through assessment and testing, he will design a treatment plan to meet each individual’s specific needs. Stephen will also provide home care activities that will complement the massage treatment in order to maximize results and speed healing.
