Hi! I am Stacey Massey and I am the owner and operator of Benevolence Total Wellness. I have created Benevolence as a refuge for people that are actively struggling with any number of health related issues. Over the past 10 years I have been privileged to share my time with ordinary people that are striving to create an extraordinary life. All of us possess the ability to achieve greatness and that greatness is measured in many different forms because we are all beautifully unique. I want to help you not only realize what your extraordinary is, but give you that extra support that you need to reach for the stars and be the very best that you can be. I do that by teaching you how to nourish your body, mind and spirit in ways that have supported people for thousands of years.
Life is a challenge, and unfortunately most of us were never given the “Overcome Life’s Challenges” manual. I want to change that. I am here to help you navigate your way through the struggles that you are facing whether they are emotional or physical. The therapies that I have implemented work for everyone with every type of challenge. I have successfully assisted patients in recovering from a number of disease processes including:
All Forms of Pain
These are simply a few of the different types of issues I treat on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, this is catching people after the disease process has already taken hold. More than anything I want to educate people on how to really take care of themselves before they are labeled as “broken”. This is called preventative medicine. It is the answer to our health care crisis. I believe from the bottom of my heart that if you educate people on how to take care of themselves, they will. Most people simply do not know where to begin. It has become blatantly clear that we are worth more sick and broken than we are healthy. It is your responsibility, your duty as sole owner of your body to take control of your health. Disease does not just happen to you, there is a reason. Sometimes that reason is hidden deep down and it takes some time to discover but if you stick with it everything will come together. I am here to take your hand and help you up the mountain that you are facing. Because together we can achieve anything!
