About Stef​

I first discovered my innate ability to massage as a child when I used to massage my mother. I instinctively knew where to go and how to move the knots and stagnation.

After finishing a BA in Asian Studies/Mysticism, I travelled to India and found Ayurvedic Medicine. Through the framework that it offered, life finally made sense, and I returned to Oz to study it. But at the time it was still quite unknown, and so I chose the next best thing: Acupuncture. At the Australian School of Natural Medicine in Brisbane, I completed a diploma in acupuncture whilst also simultaneously completing an apprenticeship with a teacher training in Yoga Chi Gung and Ayurvedic medicine under Grant Woolven of the Creative Health Institute.

 

I have always been fascinated in movement- whether it was channelling my inner gypsy pirate via travel, or via Conscious dance or the movement of energy via massage.

 

With over 20 years of experience massaging literally thousands of clients from all over the world, my skills have become more subtly attuned. No matter what background we come from, as humans, we all require space to pause and notice what the body - the barometer of the soul - is trying to tell us. And a beautiful way to allow this to happen is via the space that a massage can provide.

My style of massage is a synthesis of the knowledge I have gathered over the years and has been described as deeply relaxing deep tissue.

Stef’s massages are incredible. So much more than just a massage, her knowledge of the body and how it works is amazing. She is very intuitive and gives a lot of helpful advice and knowledge as well as magic hands 😊 highly recommended.
