My name is Laurissa S. Stephens. I am the Owner/Manager of Synergy Bodywork, LLC. and a Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist. I have a North Carolina License #4555 and I am also nationally certified by the National Certification of Therapeutic Massage Board #397388. I have been practicing massage therapy since May 2003; it has been an extremely rewarding 15 years!
I am originally from a small town, Berlin, that is located in Somerset, PA. I commuted to Alleghany College of Maryland where I graduated from the Therapeutic Massage Therapy Program in May 2003 with an Associated Degree in Applied Science. Throughout my two year training in the massage program, I was exposed to a variety of healing modalites, an adequate amount of clinicals, and an empowering start of a personal journey to learn how to help heal myself. I am extremely pleased with my education and graduated with confidence to begin my career as a Professional Therapeutc Massage Therapist. I also went an extra year to earn a Letter of Recognition in Integrative Health. This allowed me to further my understanding of health and healing through alternative healthcare.
Although I love my career, I have several other interests and hobbies. I love spending time with my husband and our four "fur babies". Whether we take a trip to the beach or the mountains or just watch a movie at home, our time together is so valuable and precious. I also LOVE taking pictures and putting them in a scrapbook! I enjoy reading for fun and reading to learn more about the amazing body.
