Steve and his wife Celina, wanted to find a warm, safe, and supportive community in which to start and raise a family. By March of 2007 they had found what they were looking for, and moved to Ashland, Oregon. “Now we have two happy and healthy daughters, and Ashland has proven to be everything we hoped it would be.”
Steve began his career as a bodyworker in 2002 by immersing himself in the study of the ancient art of Thai Yoga Massage with Kam Thye Chow, the founder of the Lotus Palm School in Montreal, Canada. After many years of developing his Thai Massage practice in New York City, Steve expanded his knowledge of bodywork by studying and practicing the more traditional western style modalities of Swedish and Deep Tissue massage, at the Kripalu Institute, in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts.
In 2009, Steve began his bodywork practice at the Waterstone Spa. Thai Yoga Massage is his first love, and it influences his table-work as well. “I love to combine both eastern and western approaches to my table-work by stimulating the flow of chi, or prana, while applying Swedish techniques.”
“Waterstone Spa is a great place to practice massage. We have a great, caring, and experienced staff who approach the work from their heart center. I believe one would be hard pressed to find a finer group of spa technicians.”View All Therapists
