The Hunter Method









The Hunter Massage Method is designed to change muscle memory and give relief to many conditions in which tight muscles are an underlying major factor. The method is a combination of interactive movement and specific myofacial touch, that reprograms muscles to relieve tightness.  Treatment is based off of a kinesthetic and visual postural analysis and thorough intake of your “muscle story” that determines the underlying cause of the tight muscles.

How Was the Method Developed?


The Hunter Massage Method’s founder, Stephanie Hunter, has worked full time as a massage therapist since 1992, giving over 2,500 treatments a year. A  master in her profession, Stephanie trained in many massage disciplines over the years–excelling in sports massage, myofacial work, polarity massage (energy work), myokinesthetic, myoskeletal massage, ashiatsu, and others. She combined the knowledge she learned in these different disciplines over this  long period until she came up with her method that employs different parts of different types of massage to focus on lasting relief that does not require ongoing treatment.

How Does the Hunter Method Work?


The Hunter Massage method is nothing like traditional massage. Instead, the client is fully dressed as the therapist goes through a sequence of targeted movements (while the client actively participates) in order to release tense muscles and relieve even the most stubborn pain problems that the muscle issues cause. Many pain problems can be solved with as little as 1-5 Hunter Massage Method treatments. Other, more serious, issues take more sessions. A Hunter massage isn’t a relaxing massage for temporary relief, it’s a massage built to give lasting relief.


Who Does the Hunter Massage Method Help?

Clients with Balance Issues

About 30% of all the clients we see have issues with balance problems like Vertigo, BPPV, Menieres, and just feeling “off-kilter” “stoned” “wobbly”, and prone to falling. We don’t help any named disease but when the muscles are no longer tight in the nerve pathways that lead to the eyes, ears, and head the body has a natural way of fixing itself. There are no side effects to the massages. Some clients have been home bound for years, others call us the minute they wake up “dizzy.”

Clients with Movement Issues

We see many different clients with movement issues like the following: difficulty going from sitting to standing, difficulty to lift leg to put on socks, Frozen shoulder, difficult to walk, waddle walk, can’t serve, can’t play golf, can’t lift arm to drive car, unable to play Pickle ball, or throw a football for son. We love to help people get moving again because even though it is not life threatening to not be able to do things, it is deadening to the spirit and leads to depression, weight gain and sadness.

Clients with Pain

They say that pain is the great human equalizer. There’s nothing worse than being in pain and in our experience the pain that comes from contracted muscles can be extremely severe and debilitating. The massage works by communicating with the nervous system through movement and touch to let the body know that it is o.k. to move, and touch is welcome. We see really serious pain issues like Trigeminal Neuralgia which feels like a knife going through your face relieved to more common pain complaints – neck, back, foot, elbow, myofascial, and named conditions like Sciatica, TMJ, Plantar Fasciitis, Neuropathy.

Kids 4-18

We see a lot of kids with pain, movement and balance problems. It is great because clients remain dressed during treatment, and parents come and participate with their kids. Typically we see a lot of athletic kids with muscle tightness, imbalance and severe cases where they’ve spent tons of money when in reality the problem was a tight muscle that was causing symptoms.


We see all kinds of athletes from weekend warriors, to professional competitors where their livelihood depends on how well they can perform. Most of the people who do athletics are golfers – the treatment helps with golfer’s elbow, back pain, shoulder pain, hand and thumb pain, gluten not firing, and increases mobility for rotation. We also see tennis players with hip flexor issues, knee pain, and frozen and tight shoulders. Others include hockey players, lacrosse, volleyball, shooting sports, running, triathletes, etc.

Carol–Frozen Shoulder

“I was skeptical at first…but, the first time she (Stephanie Hunter) started to work on me, I started feeling relief. After 5-6 visits, I was completely fine. I never took another drug. ”


“I came to Hunter Massage Clinic because of a broken back from a car accident 45 years ago, and I tried just about everything. I spent over $100,000 on treatment before I came here and got significant relief… I could feel a difference after one treatment, but after about a year of treatment I was in a totally different place.”
