Stephen Kirwin BA, CMT is a graduate of the University of Colorado and The Boulder College of Massage Therapy. From Boulder, Colorado USA. Stephen has been a practising neuromuscular and orthopaedic sports massage therapist for over 22 years.
“With well over 20 years of endurance race experience Stephen knows the body in motion as well as all the muscular dysfunction and pain that can hinder an active life style and healthy work place.”
Stephen is a 12 time ironman triathlon finisher and has competed in numerous other mountain bike races and trail running races. While in private practise in the sports Mecca of Boulder, Colorado he worked directly with such athletes as Ironman champions Scott Tinley and Dave Scott as well as members of Lance Armstrong’s 7 time champion Tour de France cycling team.
In addition to sports personalities Stephen also works with 2 time Oscar winner Hollywood star Kevin Spacey and well known producer Oliver Stone. With well over 20 years of endurance race experience Stephen knows the body in motion as well as all the muscular dysfunction and pain that can hinder an active life style and healthy work place.
Passive non- direct massage therapy styles often leave the body in a state of reflexive stress from not getting the release one needs for healing, detoxification, injury rehabilitation and performance enhancement.
Stephen ties in a unique blend of structural integration, myofacial release, trigger point therapy, cranial sacral therapy, and genuine deep tissue therapy to help you meet your goals and get you back to form and enjoy your work and play in a pain free state. Stephen currently has private practises in integrative wellness centres in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Finland, Turkey and Belgium.

It's a man with a golden touch.I met Stephen 2 years ago in Zenaya (Belgium). Stephen truly has a gift as healer, bodyworker and therapist. I only got one treatment and it already changed my life in a positive way. He gave me good advise. I hope I will meet him again for another treatment some day. If you get the chance to get a treatment from him, you will not regret it and feel you much better and more happy. It's a man with a golden touch. Thank you Stephen.
He managed in just three sessions to help relieve the strain and lead me to full recovery.I had been suffering from an Achilles tendinitis for more than a year, the result of a poorly fitted bike on a 10 day road trip. No matter what I tried it was just not going away. But a chance encounter with Stephen changed everything. He managed in just three sessions to help relieve the strain and lead me to full recovery.
So very very thankful to this gifted man.Stephen turned my shoulder injury that doctors said would take 6 months to heal around in 2 weeks. His ability to get to the original source of the muscle stress and then work thru the body releasing as he goes to the injury is something very rare to find. So very very thankful to this gifted man.
