Stephany Floyd has been a Massage Therapist for ten years, and has a background in deep tissue/clinical massage. She’s been a part of EHM since it started, but now works primarily in Chicago at Massage Evolved (118 N Clinton). She is a guest therapist at EHM a few times a year. We look forward to having her actively on staff when she is available. Deep tissue, Ashiatsu, Therapeutic massage are some of her specialties. In the summer you’ll find her riding or racing her motorcycles, and in the winter, she’ll be trying to share her delicious baking experiments. Stephany also enjoys sloths, chocolate, photography, yoga, and doesn’t get to go rock climbing nearly as much as she likes.
I believes these techniques are helpful in the body’s recovery from strenuous activity or injury, as well as promoting relaxation. My personal beliefs are practicing with a holistic and client-focused approach that values open communication between therapist and a client. Aside from my professional life, I am passionate about reading related to health, fitness and nutrition. I enjoys spending time with my family and friends. When I am not treating clients, I enjoy cooking, working out, spending time with my daughters, listening to the music, and enjoying all that life has to offer.
Kim McDuffee Dotson: “May there be Peace on Earth and may it begin with me”
In my practice, I listen carefully to each and every client I work with and tailor my services to meet each individual need. My specialties include the reduction of stress and sleep issues, the increase of relaxation, and the development of personal rituals to improve quality of life for young children through adolescence, pets, and adults of all ages. I believe in the power of positivity, the medicine of laughter, and the necessity of unconditional love to overcome the unique challenges we each may face. My call to Reiki came when my daughter was born with a birth injury in 2001. She had trouble eating and sleeping because she was in such discomfort. I learned Reiki as an alternative and in addition to the traditional medical treatments she received. She recovered from her injury in record time which I believe was the result of the combined efforts of those traditional and alternative healing treatments. My path to Reiki Master Teacher took another 5 years to develop and during that time I learned to incorporate my experience with the healing properties of crystals, oils, and teas as well as meditation, and ritual.
