•Many thanks to my friend Lisa Goswick for being my lovely model•
My name is Stephanie Churn Lubow and I am deeply committed to facilitating healing and wellness for my clients.
I have been a massage therapist in Florida for over twenty years, and I incorporate the knowledge and experience that I have gained through studying and practicing a blend of Eastern and Western modalities.
In 2006, I found my passion for the art of traditional Thai massage. I had the opportunity to study Thai healing arts in Thailand in 2012, and have continued to further my studies in traditional Thai medicine. My style is firm yet relaxing, and since I work on a mat on the floor I am able to utilize my body weight and gravity for deeper work. I believe that Thai massage is a practical application of the Buddhist principle of metta -- loving kindness --.and that it is all about working from a place of open heart and compassion. Thai massage is meant to be a deeply meditative and healing experience for both the client and practitioner.
