Steve Hasheider was born and raised in south central Wisconsin, but left after High School to explore the bigger world. He found his life work in 1989 when he attended the American Institute of Massage in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The healing arts and working with people to promote wellness came natural to Steve and he began a life long quest for more knowledge and experience in these areas. After finishing at the American Institute of Massage he went on to study a course in Basic Fitness Training at the Florida Atlantic University. Steve then moved to New York and started his own massage business while continuing to take courses and workshops in Oriental Massage, Spinal Polarity, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Deep Tissues, Swedish, Sports and Neuromuscular Massage, Myofascial Release, Reflexology, and Energy Work. Steve served people through his massage business in New York for 18 years. He recently decided to return to the countryside he loves and create a healing practice in south central Wisconsin that incorporates all the knowledge and experience he has gathered over the years, helping people obtain optimum wellness.

Basic Fitness Training
I have been a massage therapist for 20 years. I have worked in Spas and Chiropractor's offices and South Hampton Hospital doing massage. I also set up my own massage business in Eastern Long Island, NY and later in the Madison, WI areas. I have learned and incorporated various types of massage and body work techniques into my unique approach to individualized massage therapy. Listed below are the various techniques I use. Therapeutic Massage Incorporating all these modalities for the most effective individualized massage for you. Sports Massage – specifically addresses the accumulation of lactic acid in muscle tissue produced from regular exercise, and promotes muscle relaxation. Swedish Massage – a gentle and relaxing full body massage that promotes circulation, relaxes muscles and reduces tension. Deep Tissue Massage – both a therapeutic and firm massage that focuses on specific tension and restoring flexibility. Using various strokes and deep pressures, specific muscle tension is released and flexibility is restored. May include assisted stretching and is highly recommended for chronic pain and limited range of motion. Ideal for anyone that desires a firm massage. Polarity – Polarity draws on Western and Eastern theories that assume the existence of energy fields in the body that must be balanced to maintain health. These fields may be called Bio-Energy, Ki, or Vital Force. Health is a delicate balance of physical, mental and emotional energy. Gentle touch and holding techniques are used to restore the flow of energy throughout the body. Spinal Polarity – passive stretching that works on the muscles that affect the spine. Cranial Sacral – a gentle hands-on technique that allows direct balancing and healing access to the nervous system. By using subtle palpitations and light pressure points of the cranium and sacrum, the natural healing capabilities of your body are enhanced. Foot Reflexology – based on Ancient Chinese teachings using pressure point massage. This foot therapy restores the flow of energy to the entire body and promotes a sense of well-being. Myofascial Release – a form of bodywork which includes, but is not limited to, structural and manual massage techniques for stretching the fascia and releasing bonds between fascia, integument, muscles, and bones are mainly applied; with the goal of eliminating pain, increasing range of motion and balancing the body.
