How it all started…

In Summer 2003, she moved to Bay Of Plenty to commence her career amongst a positive and outdoor-orientated society.  Since then Stef has managed the Massage Centre at the Mount Hot Salt Water Pools and has been the Massage Therapist to The BOP Steamers rugby team in recent times and Contracted Massage therapist to the Waikato Chiefs

Body imbalance or pain is often not where you’d first think to look.

Stef has developed an innovative blend of Massage, Acupressure & Meridian Energy Healing over the past 14 years and has already helped many hundreds of people.  This potent style of massage catapults the effectiveness of every session to another level!  It continues to release tension behind the scenes for an additional 24 – 48 hours after the appointment is finished bringing you profound and fast relief from pain and imbalance.

Often we will enhance this by suggesting helpful tips for you to take away so you can feel more in charge of your progress between visits.
