Stephanie is a great massage therapist with specialized training and sensitivity for cancer patients. I have had many of my patients go to her and all I hear is positive feedback from their experience.
We are very lucky to have this depth of experience in oncological massage therapy and physical therapy here in our town.

If you have been struggling with lymphedema or other side effects of breast and node surgery, give yourself the gift of a healing massage package with Stephanie Gray.

Not only does she specialize in oncological massage, her solid and centered presence is a balm to the battered spirit. Her massage is careful and gentle, yet therapeutic, targeting the special concerns and challenges of a breast cancer client.

Stephanie also educates you about your condition and teaches you self-massage techniques to take home with you. I am truly grateful to be in the capable hands of Stephanie Gray, and frankly would feel much less hopeful about my situation without her expertise and care.
