A Little Bit About Me ...

Get to know me better ...

Stephanie Maxwell is a Registered Massage Therapist, a Massage Therapy Educator and a Pre and Postnatal Movement Specialist.

 

Stephanie's practice focuses on supporting individuals and families through the transitory journey of pregnancy and postpartum parenthood.

 

Her therapeutic massage treatments aid in better pregnancy, birth and postpartum experiences. 

 

Through the application of massage therapy techniques, nervous system support, education and movement, Stephanie focuses on facilitating and maintaining balance and alignment of the pregnant pelvis and supporting structures. This helps create optimal fetal and uterine alignment, aid in more physical comfort for the birth parent, and create optimal space for the baby. Stephanie's hands-on work facilitates comfort, ease and relaxation.

What is pregnancy, birth & parenthood, but new growth, continuous development & a flurry of movement. 

Stephanie offers massage therapy appointments at the Wolseley Wellness Centre on Corydon in Winnipeg, MB.
