Stephanie Von der Thannen

Massage & Tantra Therapist, Coach, Workshops


I grew up in a small village in Austria, surrounded by big mountains, beautiful nature, lots of snow in the winter.

Having an identical twin sister, I experienced the joy of unity and the challenge and need to find my own path.


In my youth I had the feeling of not fully fitting in. I was very interested in spiritual topics and busy with questions like: "What is the meaning of life? Why are we here? What is my purpose?" etc. I was longing to follow my heart and to live and work in a way that truly resonates with me. There was an inner knowing that there must be so much more to life than commonly teached - there must be more possibilities than the usual life path in my village (to marry, to build a house and to get children). 

With age 21 this voice in me got so strong, that I decided to take a leap of faith and to follow it fully. This was scary and a big relief at the same time. It was the start of a great discovery journey, which led me to leave my village and to live in an Eco-village community in Portugal for many years, to explore life and finding my own truth, to travel to different countries, the joy of finding like-minded people and getting to know my gifts and turning them into my profession.
I learned that my sensitivity is not a weakness, but a strength. My interest in the physical and energetic levels of life led me to study different modalities and techniques of massage, energy work and healing.

I am a calm and optimistic person and enjoy to be in nature.

Since 2017 I live in Stockholm (Sweden).
I feel grateful for life and all the support I received on my path and am passionate to inspire and support others to fill their sensitivity with confidence, to follow their inner truth and creating a fulfilled and happy life.
