Stephen is a certified masseuse and from 2001 till present he has focused his music skills towards developing a healing modality blending sound and touch he calls "Wave Massage".

Stephen's most recent CD, "Beyond the Beneath", a collaboration with Debra Nunes, Ken Becker and Taressa Bell, is a blend of Stephen's shakuhachi flute, vibes and zither, playing with cello, guitar and vocals. It is also enhanced with brainwave entrainment technology and ambient nature sounds.
