Stephanie has been a Massage Therapist for eighteen years. After graduating from the Natural Health Institute of Bowling Green in 2003, she moved to Louisville, Kentucky to begin practicing and gaining experience in therapeutic applications for both clinical and spa settings.
Wanting to add depth to her anatomical knowledge and explore Eastern perspectives of health and healing she attended the Yandara Yoga Institute in Baja, Mexico where she completed a 200 hour Hatha Yoga teacher training in the summer of 2008.
Over the years, she’s arranged her style of Massage to incorporate fluid techniques that promote relaxation and precise, tension relieving applications for muscular discomfort. She relies on her skills (including Myofascial Release, Reflexology, and PNR stretching) along with her own intuition to personalize Massage to each unique person’s needs, and has found this method to be beneficial to her clients, thus, rewarding for her.
She believes in the mind/body connection and knows firsthand that movement and meditation are positive and powerful.
Yoga holds a special place in her heart and she is so grateful to have it reintroduce itself to her after being out of practice for a while. The Nightingale is a perfect setting to reignite that relationship, and she is so excited to start.
"When life takes it out of you, massage puts it back."
