Stefanie Sabounchian was born and raised in Germany where she worked for eight years as a medical assistant. Her first introduction to reflexology was in the late 80’s in Germany when she attended a four-day class on foot reflexology. Since then, reflexology became an integral part of her life. After moving to the United States in 2000, she earned her certificate in the Flocco Method – Integrated Foot Hand Ear Reflexology and became nationally certified with ARCB.
Stefanie has a thriving full-time reflexology practice in the greater Los Angeles area. Since 2008, she is one of the core instructors at the American Academy of Reflexology. She has also taught Foot Hand Ear Reflexology at several other schools, as well as internationally in Germany, Switzerland and Portugal. She is past president of the Reflexology Association of California and vice president of the World Reflexology Foundation.
As a public speaker and published author, Stefanie continues to educate the public about reflexology. She sees RAA as an important national organization to help our profession to become strong and recognized as an accepted and respected therapeutic modality.
