Kitchener Massage Therapy


Stephen Downey

Registered Massage Therapist

Stephen's mission is to help his clients return to what they love doing while performing at their best. His approach to healing and maintenance is to look carefully at cause and effect and identify the root of the problem. He seeks to promote positive change in each patient's health and well-being, and to educate them around body awareness. In clinical practice, he uses a variety of techniques including Swedish and deep tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, cupping, along with gait analysis and postural reeducation, stretching and remedial exercises. Stephen treats the body as a whole and is concerned with the mind-body connection. Meditation is a big part of his life and this translates into his practice. He believes that massage is an integral part of healing the physical manifestations of trauma and is passionate about helping those with PTSD, anxiety disorders, depression and other chronic illnesses.
