Stephanie is now certified as a Graston Technique Specialist. Graston Technique is an instrument-assisted, soft tissue mobilization that uses specifically designed instruments. Soft tissue mobilization breaks up fibrous muscle tissue as the instruments are moved over the affected area and come in contact with the adhesions. This technique is often used to relieve conditions including carpal tunnel and plantar fasciitis or to alleviate pain in the large muscle groups of the back, legs and hips. Bruising is not intended but can occur.

Stephanie also offers Massage Cupping. Cupping is an ancient from of alternative medicine which uses negative pressure or suction. Placing cups on the skin helps to lift and separate tissues and relieve pain, inflammation, lymph drainage, relaxation and is even a form of deep tissue massage. The suction helps by loosening adhesions and stimilating elimination of accumulated debris in the tissues, organs and systems. Some conditions that respond to massage cupping are sciatica, bursitis and chronic pain. This non-invasive technique aids well in scar reduction annd pre and post operative recovery time. While discoloration of the skin is not intended, it may occur with treatment.
