Stephanie Davis, ASCM CPT, CMT
Contact Stephanie: (802) 793-0838
A Lyndonville area native, Stephanie started her career in the fitness field in 2002, when she was certified through the American College of Sports Medicine. She worked at the Club at Old Mill, teaching fitness classes, including strength training, spinning, kickboxing, senior fitness, and personal training. Later, she worked for Dan Wyand Physical Therapy where she aided clients in rehab exercises.
It became clear to Stephanie that both exercise and massage are important tools to help the body stay strong and balanced, so she expanded her fitness education by studying massge therapy at the Green Mountain Massage School. Upon graduation, she opened her own massage and personal training practice in St. Johnsbury. Her love of the outdoors prompted a move to East Burke, where she and her clients can enjoy being close to Kingdom Trails, Burke Mountain, and the myriad of outdoor recreational opportunities available in the East Burke area. Stephanie hopes Trail 2 Wellness will provide convenience for her clients by offering a number of healthy services under one roof, such as yoga, nutrition, personal training, small group fitness classes, massage, and other spa treatments.

Reiki is translated as: spiritually guided life force energy. This universal energy flows through all things. A person’s energy can become stagnant when there has been physical or emotional injury or pain. Practitioners of Reiki learn to help to remove these areas of stagnation and thus improve the flow of energy. This improvement in energy flow can help to provide relaxation, reduce stress, reduce pain, and assist the body in its natural healing abilities.
