Q&A w/ Shoji Masseuse: Lucas Stevenson

Meet Lucas Stevenson!

He is one of our world-class massage therapists, offering us another look behind the scenes. We’re excited to share with you his thoughts on his craft, favorite relaxation techniques, and all things Shoji!

Where are you from?

Northeast Kansas

What brought you to Asheville?

Business – I began working a small company here in Asheville back in 2008.

When or why did you decide to get into massage therapy?

Back in 2005. I chose to go into massage therapy as a gateway into Alternative Health, and it became my primary practice.

What do you love most about massage therapy?

I love that people nearly always leave happier and healthier than when they came in, and I love using my knowledge of the human body to accomplish that.

What do you love most about working at Shoji?

Great atmosphere, great staff, great visitors! We get to work with relaxed people and make them even more relaxed.

Can you share with us a time when you helped someone with massage?

My favorite experience was with a young woman, a really talented musician who had severe arm and hand nerve issues. Her mom brought her in a couple of times each week for specific work. It was a group effort – her Physical Therapist, her mother, myself, and most especially her determination and hard work – but she is playing professionally and is now also a conductor. That makes me smile every time I think of it.

What kind of music or sounds do you like to play during massage therapy?

Anything relaxing that helps myself and the client get into the zone. Singing bowls, chanting, New Age music, nature sounds, etc.

Favorite Japanese food?

Sashimi – all of it!!
