Massage therapist, Stephanie Blades RNC, LMT, CEIM, of Easton, is a mother, nurse, massage
therapist and educator. A nurse at the Birthing Center at University of Maryland Shore Regional Health at Easton since 2000, teaching childbirth classes since 2002 and a licensed massage therapist since 2014, she offers prenatal massage as well as therapeutic massage and Reiki. Stephanie is certified as an educator of Infant massage and anticipates completing more specialized certification courses to expand her massage modalities. “I believe that each of us has the inward power to heal outward ailments, and that often, the manifestations of injury, disease, and unease in life are shown to us through our aches and pains,” Blades says. “In my practice I take great pride in listening to what my clients tell me, but also the feedback that their bodies give me. I then fine-tune the massage to meet those needs.” She combines different modalities in order to allow the body to achieve the ultimate level of relaxation and pain relief. These modalities include Swedish, deep tissue, lomi loom, myofascial release, aromatherapy, reflexology and thai yoga massage. “I believe that massage should be obtainable for all, so I offer massage at a rate that is reachable for all.”
Deborah Pulzone, Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner
JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area but will continue and eventually disharmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow. Through Jin Shin Jyutsu our awareness is awakened to the simple fact that we are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves (in rhythm with the universe) physically, mentally and spiritually.
Retreat. Reiki is a Japanese technique used to reduce stress and anxiety, and promote relaxation. It is not a cure for disease or illness, but may assist the body in creating an environment to facilitate healing, and has been used as a complementary tool to traditional medicine. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and wellbeing. Donna began her own healing journey through Reiki for Lyme disease in 2011, when she began her Reiki training with Reiki Master, Del St. Ana at Evergreen Cove, and completed her Reiki Master Teacher training in 2015. Donna has a B.S. in Biology and a M.S. in Environmental Education, and has worked as a biologist, naturalist, and environmental educator for over 30 years.
