Stephen Flam is a graduate of The Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences based in New York City. He is a Licensed Massage Therapist in the state of New York and South Carolina. His massage specialties are deep tissue, sports, medical, Shiatsu, Swedish, trigger point therapy, rapid release technology (RRT), and manual lymphatic drainage and lymphedema management therapy.
Combining massage therapy and exercise science together and with over two decade of experience, Stephen finds himself very comfortable working in the massage therapy setting with special populations as well as athletes. Stephen Flam also is able to perform Rapid Release Technology, which is an alternative way to help relax muscles, and foster the healing process.

Currently, Stephen is pursuing further education in Acupuncture.

"Stephen Flam served as our U.S. Team Head Massage Therapist in Athens, Greece at the 2004 Mixed Martial Arts World Cup. Stephen's exceptional knowledge of the anatomy and exercise physiology, as well as kinesiology as it related to our competitors was superb. Stephen's consummate professionalism, confidence and competence in treating our fighters, both in preparation for the matches, as well as for recovery and maintenance thereafter were a godsend. I would recommend Stephen Flam to anyone with the utmost confidence and highest regard."

"It was my pleasure and good fortune to meet Mr. Stephen Flam during his pursuit of enhanced knowledge in the field of fitness and wellness. Stephen Flam is an educated, focused and determined individual. This is obvious through feedback from his clients, his punctual nature and his constant quest for knowledge. Stephen puts all of his attention to each client he works with during massage or personal training and he treats patients from all walks of life. Many patients have pre existing injuries he must work around but he also trains apparently healthy individuals. As a member of the Bodhizone staff, Stephen conducts himself in a responsible and professional manner. This is demonstrated through his rapport and his coordination with all employees of the facility. He continuously tries to make the patients treatment more streamline and efficient through the proper communication to all practitioners and with the front desk manager. I, without a doubt, send Mr. Flam to you with high regards and am sure he will be an asset to any team or organization. If you have any further questions regarding Mr. Flam, do not hesitate to call me at the above address."
