"Where's the 6 star button? Stevie's healing and spiritual presence have consistently managed to gift my chronically ill and injured body with a combo of knowledgeable assessments, easy treatments, & compassionate care which provide me with the perfect amount of push/pull I need to thrive. Under her watch I've experienced astral projections, emotional releases, and a newfound sense of painlessness that seemed impossible prior to our work together. I always leave her office feeling emotionally lighter and physically rooted." - Mason S.
