I highly recommend Steven Blackstone as a therapist for his knowledgeable approach to sports injuries and prevention. I found the advantages of having a highly trained holistic Asian Bodywork therapy over just plain massage to be great. In my preparation and competition in the Olympics I rely on finding root causes of problems, which can be varied and complex. It helps to have someone on your team with the insight and perspective to unravel injuries and more importantly see them coming and prevent them.
While many people may not be familiar with Asian Bodywork and it’s extensive training, it is in high demand amongst top-level athletes who need effective and thorough care.

I recommend Steven Blackstone as an Asian Bodywork Therapist accomplished in the healing art of Tuina. I have served as Steven’s instructor, clinic supervisor and consultant on some of his cases. Steven displays abundant capability to accurately diagnose and treat not only orthopaedic ailments but, all manner of illnesses. He is enthusiastic and meticulous in his treatment of children and experienced in Pediatric Tuina. In my opinion, Steven is an undeniable asset to the health care community.

Steven Blackstone has been my choice of bodywork therapists for a long time.
I prefer the unique methods he associates with Sacred Healing Tree over many others. I like the flexibility of his techniques and admire his ability to diagnose and treat fluidly at the same time. He can work deeply when necessary without causing pain and there is no pain after. Each of his sessions is different but he still manages to isolate my problem areas and make me feel like new every time.
I get regular therapy sessions with Steven because it helps me to manage the cumulative aches and pains caused by the stresses of everyday life. After a session I feel much more relaxed, pain free and ready to deal with everything again.
Thank you, Steven.
