Hi! I’m Stephanie Barry, licensed massage therapist, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, and founder of Transcendent Massage Therapy and Personal Training.
My mission is to provide recovery and performance solutions for athletes.
I have been enthusiastic about health and fitness since a young age. Growing up, I was a multi-sport athlete and went on to play field hockey at Bridgewater State University. There, I pursued my passion of health and fitness and earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise science in 2010.
After years of playing sports and training, I had experienced a few injuries along with some aches and pains. I found relief through massage therapy and wanted to learn how to use this modality, along with exercise and nutrition, to help others. I enrolled in Massage Therapy School with Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy (now Cortiva Institute) to help athletes move better and feel better.
In addition to being a licensed massage therapist, I hold the distinction of being a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist under the National Strength and Conditioning Association, which is one of their highest honors. I am also certified with USA Weightlifting, Precision Nutrition, Level 2 RPR, and Pain-Free Performance Specialist.
My goal is to incorporate my knowledge of strength and conditioning as well as massage in every session. I love helping people get relief from aches and pains and increasing their athletic performance, whether they are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior.
I look forward to meeting you!
