about2Steven Tiede, the Massage Therapist at In the Zone Massage Therapy, has been a resident of the Eastern Sierra for fifteen years.  He came here because of his love for the outdoors and all the Eastern Sierra has to offer. In addition to being an avid cyclist, he backpacks, hikes, cross country skis and fly fishes. It is also his love of the outdoors and sports that also led him to massage therapy.

Steven studied massage therapy at the Somatherapy Institute for Massage in Rancho Mirage, California.  He completed their Massage Therapist Program and is certified by the California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) as a Massage Therapist. In addition to studying the traditional therapies such as Swedish, Sports and Deep Tissue, Steven also studied Thai, Lomi Lomi, Riiki/Polarity, Aromatherapy and Reflexology.

Steven believes the massage experience starts from the moment you walk in. By focusing on details, such as using the highest quality massage products, he has created an inviting and relaxing environment  for you to enjoy your massage.  More importantly Steven believes that the value of massage lasts well beyond the massage itself. Each massage contributes to our experience of living life fully and in good health, of living and being in the zone!

“I thought I preferred a woman massage therapist…no longer! Steve was professional and respectful. A good combination of strong hands and relaxing technique made me feel at ease and comfortable. Very genuine and very clean, relaxing, warm, quiet space. Was a great experience and I will definitely go back again.” – Julie R.
