Journey into Tranquility with

T Spheres Founder, Stephanie Whittier

February 22 - 25, 2024

Intuitive and Explorative Movement / Aromatherapy & Massage / Self Care Rituals / T Spheres Aromatherapy Massage Sessions with Stephanie

Bring your body back to balance. Learn how to self-massage, explore intuitive movement,

practice aromatherapy, and build self-care rituals. This retreat is an opportunity to rest and reset and instill healing habits that you’ll take with you on your travels.


T Spheres Movement & Massage is a unique technique of self-massage based on Stephanie’s 30+ year career as a bodyworker, healer, and teacher of self-care practices.


Walk away from this retreat with a deeper knowledge of how to blend massage, movement, and aromatherapy to manage daily aches, pains, stress, and anxiety. Know that you will be well taken care of during the retreat under Stephanie’s expert attention, and you will leave with the tools and understanding to maintain and deepen the healing habits you’ll create.

Stephanie’s Purpose & Perspective:

Stephanie's career mission has been to educate and inspire her clients to take control of their daily well-being with aromatherapy, self-massage, movement, and positivity.


“When we allow ourselves the experience of discovering how our body and feelings change daily - especially as we age and in times of hardship - we can then embrace the practices of self-love and soulful contentment as we continue on this glorious journey called life!”

T Spheres has managed to combine the appropriate mechanical effects of soft tissue mobilization along with the chemical and psychosocial effects of aromatherapy and color in one durable produce that's easy to travel with.


Thank you so much for the T Spheres - they will be great on tour!

Dave Gahan, Depecha Mode

Quite simply, I use the T Spheres whereveer and whenever possible, and that is pretty much anywhere.

Brooke Shields, Actor and Model

Thanks you for the T Spheres, they came at a perfect time - I had just done something to my neck and was in need of a massage

Jamie Goodwin, Shaping Sounds Dance Co. - So You Think You Can Dance 


T Spheres are my go-to for everything. I use them in yoga, on flights before and after during rehearsals, I even use them to help relieve pain and discomfort while recovering from my surgeries.  They've helped aid my rehabilitation with their gentle ways of releasing stubborn muscles.  Every athlete should have a set.

About T Spheres


The aromatherapeutic effect of the essential oils promotes relaxation, which lessens muscle

tension, allowing the balls to access deeper into the tissue for more effective acupressure and

myofascial release. The T Spheres techniques target and reduce muscular pain, joint pain, and

backache and enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow and improving sleep.

Stephanie’s breakthrough process and product are the first and only of their kind to deliver such powerful holistic healing benefits in a user-friendly, portable package.
