Shannon Stone, CMT
Massage therapist Shannon Stone believes that massage can serve as a form of preventative medicine if adopted prior to the onset of pain or injury, and as such, she attends to particulars––including the temperature of her massage table and position of bolsters––with a fastidiousness most doctors would envy. Stone acquired her deft touch during a 2,200-hour course in Edmonton, Alberta, after which she earned both state certification and a credential from the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, a program that requires completion of continuing education. Today, her areas of expertise include aromatherapy massages infused with the scent of ylang-ylang or bergamot, and therapeutic styles geared toward warding off tension in pregnant mothers, athletes, or human cannonballs.
While her skills have been sought to treat everything from headaches to sciatica, Stone still caters to her clients' desire for pampering by incorporating hot rocks, steamed towel rinses, and soothing music into each session. Her conviction that massage can play a vital role in long-term health inspires the 20% discount she gives to those in the military, the police force, and other high-stress public-service positions, and her generous nature leads her to donate 25% her studio's profits to a different charitable organization on the first Wednesday of each month.
