Julene R Coblentz LMP
Founder, Chrysalis Cove
I’ve always been drawn to the healing arts, to guide my personal journey through life as well as to help me better tend to loved ones. I’ve been practicing as a licensed massage therapist since 1998.
Prior to starting my first practice, the Seattle Body Whisperer, I worked in-house for an area chiropractor. In 2008, I joined a medical massage clinic where I specialized in medical massage and developed many tools to treat the body effectively, including, Trigger Point Therapy, Reflexology, and Myofascial Release.
Deep tissue massage is incredibly taxing on the practitioner’s body; that’s why I started looking into other holistic modalities to see if my skills could apply to something I could do for the long term. CST opened my eyes to an entire new world of healing. Much like how a horse whisperer communicates without words, so do I when exploring a patient’s central nervous system to discover restrictions, pain points, and areas to heal. It is incredibly rewarding to go on a journey with my clients, as we go from a place of chronic pain and discomfort into a new world of lasting relief, comfort and inner peace.
In 2019, the time had come to expand my practice and bring in highly-skilled and specialized massage therapists. I named this new clinic, Chrysalis Cove, in honor of the physical, and in turn, spiritual transformations that await all of our guests and patients.
I am Stephanie.
I am excited to bring my unique clinical massage style to Chrysalis Cove. My style of massage incorporates Deep Tissue, trigger point therapy, Lomi Lomi, Western and Asian Bodywork. I can offer specialized treatment and prefer to take a full body approach when helping clients alleviate stiffness and pain; gain greater mobility; and feel healthier and more balanced in their bodies.

I moved to Seattle from the Midwest in 2012. When I was young, I didn’t resonate with local culture, and in my late teens and early 20’s, I learned about Eastern philosophy by reading books by Alan Watts and other philosophers. Those ideas transported me to the other side of the world and opened my eyes to different cultures and outlooks on life. While living in England to pursue my Bachelors degree, I was able to travel to India. After undergrad, I dove deeper into eastern religion by exploring Yoga and Tibetan Buddhism. From there I was drawn to Thai Massage and wanted to explore that modality in depth. In 2011, I finished a Certificate in Massage Therapy and Asian Bodywork from PCOM, now Pacific College of Health and Science, in Chicago.
In addition to massage therapy and Chinese Medicine, I also love non profit work. In 2015, I did an AmeriCorps year with the Washington Food Coalition followed by work at the Downtown Emergency Services Center (DESC) in Seattle. In 2016, I further explored my Buddhist practice and moved into a Buddhist Center where I lived for the next four years. In 2021, I received my master’s degree in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture from the Seattle Institute of East Asian Medicine. I am currently working on obtaining my Acupuncture license.
When I’m not practicing at the Cove, you may find me exploring nature; rock climbing and hiking are my two favorite activities. I also love to go on retreats and volunteer whenever I can
