Stephanie Fredricksen, LMT, Instructor, Holistic Health Coach, and Energy worker
I am passionate about health and healing, which has lead me to do some amazing things. I have a BA in Complementary and Alternative Health from Ashford University. I am a certified Reiki Master, Instructor, and a Licensed Massage Therapist that specializes in holistic therapies.
My interests include reading, writing, any activities outdoors (camping, hiking, fishing, etc.), helping others, natural medicine, meditation, and spirituality. Yoga has also been a strong force in my life.
I am a country girl with small town values of being a part of the community, taking care of those not able to do so, and most of all treating everyone with kindness and respect. Although I am no longer living in the country I still hold on to these values.
My main passion is to help others to feel their best in all aspects of their lives, be it physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. I love the idea of holistic health and practicing it as well!
Sharry Smith, LMT, Instructor, Holistic Health Coach
My specialty is in the John Barnes approach to Myofascial Release. After I graduated from Healing Mountain Massage School, I then went on to get extensive training in the John Barnes approach to Myofascial Release. Having used this method for several years, I have learned that a gentle and nurturing touch can be quite powerful.
In my journey to become well I learned through personal education, growth, and seeking how to become the healthiest version of myself. Diving into nutrition and awareness of what my body needs, I have learned that we can take charge of our own health. These ideals have helped my clients tremendously with their own health and wellness.
I chose to do this work after having been relieved of twelve years of chronic pain and stiffness, and limited movement. I am here to help you loosen those stiff muscles and joints, and to join life again. With a passion for your best health as the foundation of my practice, I can help guide and coach you towards your best self.
When I'm not working I enjoy music, reading, making quilts, and tending my garden. Daily yoga practice, walking my errands, and sitting quietly listening to the sounds of the earth are my medicine.

Katrina is our lovely Receptionist here at Holistic Bodyworks. She is a valued member of our team and we are glad to have her. A little about her…
My journey with holistic health began when I was thirteen, after the sudden passing of my mom. To cope with my grief I turned to spirituality, knowing that there had to be a greater power out there. I became very open minded and began learning about energy, crystals, etc, and started to develop deeper spiritual beliefs and practices. I was awakened to the importance of mental health and happiness in life and how often they get neglected compared to other priorities like work, making money, education, etc.
While learning how to prioritize my mental health and discovering what brought me joy, I found a passion for nutrition and exercise. I also started to tune inwards and discovered how I really wanted to live my life. I took big leaps of faith and made life changes that have led me to living an incredible life that I would have never imagined.
Right now on my journey I am pursuing an Associate of Science degree while further exploring nutrition, holistic health, and self development. Some of my greatest joys include traveling the world, camping, hiking, music, yoga, my pets, and spending time with genuinely amazing people.
I aspire to continue learning and experiencing my life to the fullest. I strive to live a life of purpose and impact, and hope that I can help and inspire others to live the life of their dreams along the way.
Alexia Rojo, LMT
Hello! My name is Alexia and I am originally from Mexico City. Growing up my mom has always fascinated me by intriguing facts about the human body. Since then, I thought I wanted to become a doctor or a nurse- you know, something that everyone knows about the medical field. However, as time went on and as it took its course into growing spiritually and mindfully, I realized that there is a big problem with opioid abuse, especially here in Utah. I know, you might ask yourself "Why if it’s a very religious state?" Yeah, you would think that people knew not to do or be a part of such abuse. I understand because we are just human at the end of the day. We have temptations that sometimes eat up our minds and make us act but its okay! Negativity will only turn into positivity because we learn from experiences. That's the only way to the path of happiness is to know sadness. So, back to my point... I went through high school pursing perquisites in order to get into a nursing program, but with the opioid problem I said to myself, "I don't want to be a part of the problem or seeing families go through the struggle."
When I graduated high school in 2017, my whole vision had shifted. I never went to pursue my nursing career. I went straight to Cortiva Institute in Salt Lake City! It had been the kind of school I'd always wanted to be a part of or thought of how a medical school would be like as a little girl. It taught me so many amazing things about our wonderful machine we use every day! Even though I only went for a year I learned and will keep learning about the simplicity of our well being and how massage therapy benefits it. I have also learned about one of my favorite subjects of the hidden realities we don't see, even though it's hidden in plain sight. I have learned that we are much more powerful and divine than we think we are and how there is something much greater waiting for us to come back and to learn more forever and ever! Progress is an eternal principal and one of the greatest gifts. This is what I am about and if you come in and see me, we can progress together! Holistic Bodyworks has given me the opportunity to share my message with others and I hope you can come in and hear it!

Take a trip down Sharry's personal experience with myofacial release. She shares her ups and downs of her healing journey.
Thirty years of repetitive motion from assembly line work had resulted in a tear in my right rotator cuff. I had the surgical repair done but it did not heal properly and cover twelve years' time the pain and stiffness increased, going into my neck and across into my left shoulder. I was unable to turn my head fully or reach above my head without a great deal of pain and discomfort. This was diagnosed as degenerative disc disease and I was told there was nothing medical science can do to help me and that I was just getting old before my time.
Twelve years after the surgery I was guided to a physical therapist who practices the John F. Barnes method of myofacial release. Since nothing else was working and my insurance would cover the physical therapy I decided to give it a shot. This is my story of how myofacial release therapy not only lessened the pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders but also opened my mind and my life.
I am very thankful to have been guided to this gentle approach to healing my sore and aching body.
