Stephen believes that passive non-direct massage therapy styles often leave the body in a state of reflexive stress from not getting the release one needs for healing, detoxification, injury rehabilitation and performance enhancement. Stephen ties in an unique blend of structural integration, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, cranial sacral therapy, and deep tissue therapy. Stephen currently has private practises in integrative wellness centres in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Finland, Turkey and Belgium. Stephen will be taking part in 137 Pillars’ Season of Wellness from 12-17 June 2018.
