Stephen’s philosophy is basically straightforward: to get people out of pain and back to functioning as quickly and effectively as possible. What form this takes depends upon the patient, their needs, and their insight into their pain. Each of Stephen’s sessions starts with a verbal assessment of the patient’s condition.

Following this analysis, a combination of bodywork styles is utilized that is tailored to the patient’s needs. An acupuncture protocol is then developed to reinforce and integrate the treatment. The combination of acupuncture and bodywork in each session lends itself to a dynamic experience for the patient.

Stephen specializes in a very subtle form of acupuncture, sometimes referred to as “wrist-ankle acupuncture”. This technique -which is very gentle and only uses a few needles, is particularly suitable for those patients who are either new to acupuncture or are reluctant towards the idea of needles.
