After 20 plus years as a building contractor, it was time to move on. Steve attended two schools in Arizona, whose curriculum centered on injury recovery, chronic pain reduction, sports performance, and special populations, graduating with honors.
During the last quarter at Cortiva Institute Tucson, he was invited to provide treatments at the World Junior Olympic Diving trials, working with young athletes and coaches from 32 countries.
While in Tucson, Steve honed his skills as a massage therapist specializing in injury recovery, chronic pain reduction, and sports performance.
After opening Pain Relief Therapies, Steve then started training in the JFB Myofascial Release Approach® under the creator John F Barnes. Steve continues to grow with MFR taking 3 to 4 classes a year increasing his skill set for himself and his clients, in this modality.
