An ancient Eastern wisdom says, "A person is awakened by poetry, grounded in rituals, and transcends in music." Yesterday I had a music healing experience that just attested that. My wondrous friend Stephanie Winter at the Singing Waters Nature Retreat offered me a sound immersion healing and restorative session that was beyond amazing. It was purifying, releasing, and recentering in such magical ways. Stephanie is such a gifted and loving soul, who I am so grateful and honored to have in my life as a friend and healer. As human beings we go through life with joy and sorrow, peace and turbulence. From time to time, life can be very trying, like this mountain farming experience I throw myself into. It is what my heart desires, and it is very hard, an alchemy for the soul. But I am not alone in this. We have so many fellow travelers and soul friends, and the ancient healing and renewal methods that we can reach out to. The therapeutic arts in many forms are the gems of humanity that support and elevate our soul's journey.
Feeling grateful beyond words.
I really enjoyed my stay at Singing Waters Nature Retreat & intend on coming back. The focus of my visit was in dealing w/grief. Stephanie changed my life w/Meditation, Thai Massage, Sound Healing. True Spiritual Therapy. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to rejuvenate their mind & body. I arrived feeling broken, & left w/a feeling of great peace. Thank you Stephanie for sparking my light 💫 again, I am forever grateful. 🙏 and thanks to Tom also!!
Stephanie is what she represents, a beautiful peaceful soul, eager to help all with their journey to bliss. I recommend Northern GA embrace this newer resident and experience her sound healing and massages as it clearly is a gift that she chose to settle here
Singing Waters is a delightful retreat. Immaculately clean, blissfully quiet, and well appointed. There is everything you need for a getaway. The kitchen has a microwave and toaster oven so you can prepare meals, if you plan appropriately. The bed is very comfortable. There are many windows that look out into the treetops. Lovely! I did not use the TV or other electronics, but they look to be all you could want. There is a very short walk to the stream, and it is absolutely gorgeous! Lawn chairs and hammock are available for use. I spent hours by the stream. So very relaxing! Stephanie greeted me when I arrived and gave me a welcoming tour of the rental and left a thoughtful gift for me. I needed peace and quiet this weekend and this place was perfect. I will definitely return. Next time I will schedule a massage!
Singing Waters Nature Retreat exceeded my expectations. If you are looking for a place to renew your spirit, this is the perfect place. It really is about the little things. Stephanie's personal touch from ensuring items like coffee and teas were stocked in the kitchen to a welcoming gift to a cushion for the swing by the creek just made the stay that more enjoyable. I scheduled a 1 hour personal yoga sessions each morning of my stay and indulged in a 90 minute spa treatment that included a therapeutic massage blended with aromatherapy, use of Rose quartz crystal Wand and Sound Healing Instruments. Because there is only a toaster over and microwave, it is recommended planning ahead on food if you stay in but nothing that is an inconvenience. There is also a great farmers market on Saturdays in town and restaurants and shops downtown on the square if you venture out. To say I felt my refreshed and at peace when I left is an understatement. It is a beautiful property run by kind people. I highly recommended it
I've just had a fantastic sound healing session with Stephanie. My whole body was vibrating and the energy was moving to the places where it was needed the most. Three hours later I still feel light and energized. Definitely coming back for more healing and highly recommend it if you are in the area. Thank you!
Perfect for a personal retreat. Stephanie and Tom were great hosts from the warm welcome to the parting goodbye hug. The rooms were very clean and comfortably appointed. I loved all the windows that opened to a view of the trees and down to the stream. Sitting by the stream was so relaxing. The highlight of the weekend was Stephanie’s massage and sound healing work. I highly recommend either the Chakra Balancing Massage or the Thai Foot Reflexology Massage. Both were amazing!!! A great place for personal reflection and connection to nature. I will return!
We came here for my birthday, and Stephanie went above and beyond to make sure it was a wonderful stay. (We booked massages with her, too, and they were fantastic.) The suite is beautiful, the backyard area is so relaxing, and you can hear the creek from inside if you crack the windows. We're planning to come back here at some point!
This was phenomenal! It was truly one of the best examples of neck work I've ever received. Her pressure was perfect - not too forceful but was still able to get into detailed areas to open up restrictions. Thank you!
My body needed this work!!
Stephanie was compassionate and very receptive. There is no hiding or lying behind the energy and vibrations. It exposes what needs to be. It's beautiful. She gave me many tools to keep the progress going. I say my intentions every day and live it! I am so grateful for having been given this opportunity to experience sound healing.
I really enjoyed experiencing a sound healing session with Stephanie. She provided a pathway for very deep connecting healing. I highly recommend her cultivating healing approach from within. She is a generous and gifted healer.
Stephanie is very professional and makes you feel comfortable and at ease in a very relaxing atmosphere. I felt great after the session, it really helped with my anxiety and nervous tension. Can't wait for my next session!
Very much recommend this style of healing and Stephanie's connection with the healing sounds. The effects lasting days after.
Stephanie has been my massage therapist since last year and she is the best one I ever had in my life. And I have been a medical massage patient for decades, with back and neck issues. Stephanie definitely has a talent in her hands, and a special energy. Every time I have pains and problems they go away within an hour after her sessions. And I sleep like a baby after her help. Thank you for keeping me alive, happy and pain-free, Stephi!
Bei Stephanie spürt man richtig dass Sie Ihre Berufung gefunden hat und es mit Herz und Seele macht.
Ihre normalen Massagen waren damals schon relaxend und trotzdem stark genug um sämtliche Verspannungen aus einem raus zu bringen. Aber mit Thai Yoga übertrifft Sie sich nochmal. Als Sie mit meinem ersten Bein die Yogastellungen durchgeführt hatte, habe ich schon.... nur beim Liegen.... gespürt, wie verspannt meine Beine gewesen sein mussten. Nach dem Thai Yoga war mein ganzer Körper so entspannt, dass ich erst einmal einige Minuten gebraucht habe bis ich wieder aufstehen konnte. Aber nachdem ich mich wieder aufgerappelt hatte ist eine wahnsinnige Energie durch meinen Körper geflossen, die schon seit Tagen anhält. Ich bin kein Yogafreund, da ist so ein passives Yoga genau das Richtige für mich Faulpelz. Ob Yogafan oder nicht, wenn ihr mal die Möglichkeit habt euch von Stephanie behandeln zu lassen...nutzt die Chance...ihr werdet es nicht bereuen. Ich treffe Stephanie leider nur einmal im Jahr und freue mich jetzt schon tierisch auf die nächste Thai Yoga session.
I had the chance of having an hour and a half Thai Yoga bodywork with Stephanie during my stay at her place last weekend! It was my first Thai Yoga session, I have to say it won't be the last! I loved it! It was very relaxing and very effective!! It released all the tensions I had and energized me! Thank you Stephanie !!!
I had a Thai Yoga session with Stephanie; it's a combination of yoga stretching, compression and acupressure. She is a gifted, intuitive practitioner. You must try one.
Stephanie...you are the best! My back feels so much better today!
Loved my session today it was amazing! Can't wait for my next one!
If you've never had a Thai massage before, you don't know what you are missing out on. Absolutely rejuvenating and Stephanie is the best. I highly recommend it. Give it a go!
If you never had a Thai Yoga bodywork before let me tell you, you will never want a regular sessions again. I've had many sessions before but after I tried this I felt like a new a person spiritually and physically.
I give you personally a 10 star rating.
I had my first ever Thai Yoga session with Stephanie last weekend and have to say it was awesome!!!! I felt so good afterwards and am looking forward to my future Thai Yoga sessions! Thank you Stephanie!
Stephanie opened my mind and body up to something new. What an amazing experience!! She is phenomenal!! Will definitely return for more.
As a guy in my early 70s and retired, I was talking one day last fall with Stephanie and my SO when the subject of massage came up and its relaxing and therapeutic value to one's life. Never having had a massage or even thoughts of one, I had my doubts but arranged for a session with Stephanie and the rest is history, as now, I have regularly scheduled sessions. Stephanie's professional, calm, and soothing demeanor has made these sessions most rewarding and, in its own way, life changing. I highly recommend and encourage you to treat yourself to a session with Stephanie and I guarantee you too will make massage an important part of your life.
Stephanie is a fabulous massage therapist with a skill & presence of mind that make for a very effective therapeutic experience. Her studio is an inviting oasis of serenity and calm and you will definitely feel renewed after a session with her!
I had my first Thai Yoga with Stephanie and it was so relaxing but also exhilarating...I can't wait to go back. My back pain had subsided from the work out. I like to call it "passive yoga"....
I was fortunate to have the experience of a lifetime. Thai Yoga plus Stephanie's spirit is a very special combination. I was taken to a new level of consciousness while Stephanie gently manipulated my body parts. Thank you, Stephanie, for broadening my world!
Absolutely love Thai Yoga with Stephanie. She is excellent. Be sure and treat yourself and get some personal healing sessions with her.
