  • Stephanie Garner

    Hello! I'm Stephanie Garner, I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist and I've been providing massage therapy in the Freeport and surrounding areas since 2011. I graduated with my Associates degree in Massage Therapy in December 2010. I then took my National Boards exam (NCBTMB) which allowed me to obtain my IL license. I have pursued my education to the furthest possible degree and achieved one of my lifelong goals and dreams. I went on to receive my Bachelors in Nutrition and Masters in Oriental Medicine, and finally my Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. I am currently studying for my National Board exams (NCCAOM) which I intend to have completed by the end of 2022, at that time I will apply for my license to be able to offer this ancient medicine to my clients. 

    I enjoy working with all people of various ages, and whether they are coming in just for relaxation or a specific ailment or aches and pains. I enjoy working with new clients as they present new challenges and have me think outside of the box of how to help them achieve their goals. I tailor each session to the clients needs and always ask if what we are doing is working and if not what we could do differently and offering suggestions of alternate ways to achieve their goals. The client is the integral part of their health and wellness and I will do my best to help guide them to their goals. 

    Some additional certifications I've obtained over the years are (not all inclusive): Infant Massage, Pre-natal/Pregnancy Massage, QiGong Instructor, NADA specialist



Review By Our Satisfied Patient

  • "Since I have been coming, my back pain and stiffness have been better and walking is easier, and I feel I have more mobility. I'm also more relaxed and restful. Walking, bending, sitting, standing, and sleeping are much easier. My ability to sleep, back/neck aches, overall pain, and nerve function has improved. The staff was very concerned about my condition and were efficient and knowledge about my care."
