Dr. Steven Shuel

Founder and CEO of Oak Haven Massage

Dr. Steven Shuel is a chiropractor with over 29 years of experience in the massage and bodywork field.
He is the founder of Oak Haven Massage in San Antonio and Austin, Texas.
Dr. Shuel began using advanced soft tissue techniques in his chiropractic practice from the start, having taken several soft tissue classes while still in chiropractic school. After entering his practice, he
immediately brought in a massage therapist to assist in his work. Over the years, he brought eight
Advanced Level massage therapists to work with him in his practice in California.
In 2005, he retired from practice and moved with his family to San Antonio. After five days of
“retirement,” the idea struck him to open a massage center utilizing the techniques he developed over
the years – and Oak Haven Massage was born.
Oak Haven Massage employs over 130 therapists and has a total of 150 employees. With onsite training
in both locations, Oak Haven Massage offers Advanced Deep Tissue work as a specialty.
Over the past three decades, Dr. Shuel has worked with thousands of massage therapists, and he has
seen what this material can do for therapists firsthand.
Dr. Shuel lives in San Antonio, Texas with his wife Kathleen and their dog Zoe. He has four daughters and four grandchildren. He enjoys bike riding, traveling, and photography.
