About this pro
Stephanie is such a wonderful, beautiful person. I felt so welcomed and comfortable from the minute I walked into her studio. Of course the massage was great. I assume it is possible to find another great massage but I believe it is impossible to find another person as warm and kind as Stephanie. I had such a fantastic experience, upon leaving I bought some gift certificates to give as presents.Dec 19, 2011
Haven't we all learned to live with stress? I never realized what I was carring around on my shoulders until I became a client of Energy Matters. After one visit I had releif from shoulder pain and could turn my head farther then I had in years. Stephanie relaxes you and puts you at ease the minute you step into the room. This will be the best 30 or 60 minute message you will ever have and the cost is very reasonable. Treat yourself to what you deserve a better feeling you!Dec 15, 2011
I was new to the South Shore area and was looking for a good massage provided by a holistic-minded practitioner. I perused the internet, asked around town and then serendipitously stumbled upon an article about Energy Matters in the local paper. After reading the article, it was clear that I had found the place that I was looking for. Clearly, Energy Matters was a place to get a great massage, but after reading the paper's interview with Stephanie, I sensed that I would also be in presence of an intelligent and gifted practitioner. And I was not to be disappointed. Energy Matters is a beautiful, relaxing place, with soft lighting, gentle music and soothing herbal aromas. Stephanie is a healer of both the body and soul. Her hands are healing, and her extensive experience and education is evidenced by her knowledge of the anatomy and systems of the body. She intuitively senses pain hotspots and uses her skill to release tension and to balance energy throughout the body. The result of an Energy Matters massage is a feeling of total well being. Stephanie's counseling background allows her to meet the needs of her client's physical as well as mental well being. She has played the role of a 'life coach' for many of her clients, helping them to articulate and realize their dreams and aspirations. In my own experience, Stephanie helped me to take the steps to move closer to my life goals. In short, Energy Matters is not only a place to get a great massage, but it may be a life changing experience. When the soul and body are balanced, it is a beautiful thing. If health, clarity and well being is something that is important to you, I recommend that you make an appointment with Stephanie at Energy Matters. You will be so very glad that you did.Dec 19, 2011

- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Whether you have had many massage or bodywork sessions or are thinking about trying holistic massage for the first time, it is important that the work be customized to your own needs and comfort level to maximize its effectiveness. I work on people who choose to remain fully clothed, who only want very specific areas worked for shorter amounts of time, or have specific medical conditions that require adjustment of the table and materials. I respect what has been beneficial in past experiences as well as suggest new options. Holistic work is very personal, not a factory assembly line. Listen to your own intuition about whether a particular place or person it is a good fit for you.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?Sometimes I get asked this: Do I enjoy my work? I love it! It is never boring. On the contrary, it is entirely absorbing and rewarding. I feel as though I am listening through my hands and responding. It is like a very interesting conversation. I also get asked: Do I take in other people's stress or negativity. I do not. That has been a skill I had to learn but I do not guard against anything that is brought to the table and I do not judge or fear. Lastly, sometimes people ask about the physicality of massage: Don't I get tired or achy myself? The first thing massage therapists are taught is about body mechanics--how to use the whole body and not hands and arms. If I breathe, bend, and flow with my own movements it is like a dance and not tiring and can even be invigorating.
