Testimonials

 

Stefanie has the most amazing touch. It seems to contain an infallible awareness of your body’s stress-problems at each treatment beyond even your own. Even better, she has an uncanny ability to treat them and remove all tightness, congestion and aching using an extraordinary array of techniques. I am constantly astonished at what she achieves. I never knew it could feel that good to inhabit this great old war-horse of a body. Her Shiatsu techniques seem to work like a magic wand. Sure, I don’t understand the Eastern science she applies, but it works!
What is the difference between Stefanie Shiatsu and a regular treatment? It seems to me that Stefanie finds the core issues that need to be addressed in your body and uses her magic touch to resolve them. No two treatments are the same, but the results are always extraordinarily beneficial. My sense is that she is engaging my particular issues, rather than just applying a routine. I always come out of those sessions knowing that all the stuff that was giving me grief can be solved, that my body is rebalanced and that I can take the next step with poise and confidence. Even better, these beliefs turn out to be correct. Stefanie’s treatments are unique and her awareness is awesome. But don’t just take my word for it. Check it out for yourself. You can be amazed too.

I have been a client of Stefanie's for 7 years or more and during that time have found her always to be very professional, skilled, sensitive to my needs and my body's needs, insightful and intuitive. Her shiatsu treatments have supported me through many a difficulty both physical and emotional and I know that each time I have a session it is specifically tailored to my needs - not just some arbitrary routine. She really tunes into my particular needs and the results are always just what I need. I really appreciate her ability to provide a holistic treatment based on her wide range of knowledge and skills - I have not found anyone else with her great experience. I would thoroughly recommend her services - she's fabulous!
