Stephen began his massage career in 2000 in California, where he received his first license. In order to treat soft tissue issues and pain more effectively and to help his clients heal, he went back to school in 2001 to study myofascial techniques, Structural Integration and trigger point therapies. Stephen graduated from the Healing Hands School of Holistic Health in 2003.
Stephen’s past and present clientele includes professional and Olympic swimmers and divers, professional football players, golfers, dancers and aerialists, extreme marathon runners (3100 miles !), hockey players, stay-at-home dads, active moms, martial artists, dog walkers, yoga practitioners, and lots of desk-job workers.
In 2008 Stephen met Arik Gohl, the creator of Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT), at an MLT demonstration in Washington. He immediately saw the positive change this ground-breaking technique made in his clients and became a student of Arik. Since then Stephen has worked closely with Arik and the MLT community to further develop and promote Manual Ligament Therapy across the country.
“I have to say, without a doubt, MLT has changed my practice. I would not want to be without this amazing tool!”
Out of excitement for new treatment possibilities and with a desire to share, Stephen trained to become an instructor of MLT. He is now a Master instructor of Manual Ligament Therapy (MMLT) and teaches throughout the country.
Believing that education and good communication are the keys to change, Stephen works very closely with students to help them develop the understanding and confidence to use Manual Ligament Therapy as a stand-alone technique or as part of their own bodywork style.
Stephen enjoys playing ice hockey, a passion that started when he was 3 yrs old.
