An Exceptional Relaxation &
Therapeutic Massage Experience

 

I take a no agenda, integrative approach to bodywork, allowing your body to guide the session, ensuring an experience specifically tailored to your unique, individual needs.

My integrative approach combines elements of classic Swedish, deep tissue, craniosacral, trigger point, lymphatic drainage, reflexology and other modalities. I specialize in the following:

Integrative Massage
Prenatal Massage
TMJ Syndrome Therapy
Neuromuscular Therapy

Bodywork can help undo what your hard work has done to you through postural improvement, pain relief, and stress reduction. 

Located across from the picturesque Andree Clark Bird Refuge near Santa Barbara’s East Beach, Modern Bodywork provides one of the coolest massage settings anywhere. Vintage mid-century furnishings and décor give the space a vibe you won’t find anywhere else. Add a generously padded stationary massage table and face cradle, along with choice of music and you find it the perfect place to relax, refresh and restore yourself.

Let me introduce you to a unique and exceptional relaxation and therapeutic massage experience.

He takes his craft seriously, and each time I have been pleased with how my body feels afterwards—sometimes for days. I have had literally hundreds of massages in my life and Steve ranks among the top.

About Me

After 30 years in the tech industry, this new adventure began when, at the urging of my wife, I began my training at the Santa Barbara Body Therapy Institute.

My intention was to better care for myself and my wife, not a career change. But, as happens in life, I was pulled down an unexpected path. The people I have met, the perceptive I have gained, and the knowledge I have acquired have led me in a new direction. My experience as an artist, a spiritual leader, and my work in client care have unknowingly prepared me for the healing arts of bodywork.

One of the absolute best massages I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a lot! Super relaxing. Steve asks the right questions, listens, and then performs his ‘magic.’ I give him my highest recommendation.

I’ve experienced the good, the bad, and the ugly massages in Santa Barbara, and I am currently on cloud nine after my 60 minute prenatal. Thank you so much Steve Shepard for the amazing massage tonight. Steve was professional, receptive, convenient, perfect pressure! Please contact him for your next massage, you won’t be sorry!
— Elise Kahn
Pregnancy can be an uncomfortable time for the body- but Steve’s prenatal massage has left me feeling like I’m floating through the rest of my day. His pressure was PERFECT and he was easily able to access some hard-to-get-to spots (i.e. the SI joint and QL) that frequently get worked throughout pregnancy. His friendly, professional demeanor made me feel at ease and comfortable throughout the entire massage and I cannot thank him enough for the wonderful experience!
