Stephanie is a licensed and registered Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine with the Board of Directors of Drugless Therapy-Naturopathy (RHPA). She is also a professional member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND).
Stephanie Farwell first attended Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, and successfully completed her Honours Bachelor of Science, BSc, in a double major of Biology and Chemistry.
Following her undergraduate degree, she underwent four years of study at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, including a one year internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic. Stephanie was the recipient of the Presidential Award in Botanical Medicine for her graduating class.
During her Naturopathic studies she decided to undertake additional study in bodywork for more efficient treatment of pain and body misalignment. Bowen was first introduced to her at the College and she fell in love with the therapy. She was certified in 2006 and has since taken 2 levels of Masters in Bowen courses and additional training with babies, pregnancy and Bowen.
Energy Medicine appeared to be the most logical next step in the bodywork aspect of her practice. Usui Reiki was the energy therapy that she decided to undertake and became a Master and Teacher. As a teacher she endeavors to teach others the aspects and importance of integration of the Spirit, Mind, and Body in holistic health.
Stephanie has a special interest in both fertility and pain resolution and management. Having studied these various body healing techniques, such as Bowen and acupuncture, she has been able to develop her medical intuitive abilities. This has enabled her to look at her patients as a whole, not only allowing her to identify what their physical bodies require for healing, but also their mental/emotional and spiritual aspects. She is constantly studying in this area to grow as a practitioner and as a person.
