Whatever it is that’s troubling you in life- soul massage offers a way to that deep, quiet place within where all healing takes place. Experience life without fear, stress, or anxiety by connecting with the deepest, soulful part of yourself. Stephen traveled to Kyoto, Japan to train with a traditional Zen Master at Daitokuji Temple. Upon returning to the states, he started Zen House in Schenectady, NY and was one of the founders of a mediation community outside Fayetteville, Arkansas called “The Little People Farm.” A long time meditator (over 40 years) Stephen offers soul massage, a unique and beautiful healing modality where you can find the soulful center of your life.

Mia Hansford, LMT


I received my training from The Chattanooga Massage Institute (CMI) where I completed my anatomy training and practicals in an intensive seminar atmosphere to become MBLEX licensed for: Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, sports massage, shiatsu, reflexology, and neuromuscular technique. This past year I trained additionally in manual lymphatic technique for wellness. Previously, I studied Fine Art and Teaching English Literature at Wheaton College, Parsons School of Design and Eastern Kentucky University. In 2005, I arrived in Chattanooga to teach English and creative writing. Now, in 2018, I am passionately engaged in developing a practice as a Licensed Massage Therapist in an exciting extension of the dual studies of kinesiology and the living body as a work of art. Together, these threads are complementary, deepening a multi-faceted approach to both creativity and the healing arts. In addition to the modalities mentioned above, breath work, a variety of assisted stretches, muscular energy technique, and facia awareness will inform the therapy we choose to address your needs and goals. I look forward to being part of your wellness regimen at Sisu Sauna Studio. Contact Mia at 423.653.2739 to schedule your massage.
