Stewart began his massage career in 1994 after experiencing very effective sports massage from a gifted therapist who kept him free from injury while he pursued marathoning, cycling, triathlon, adventure racing and Ironman in his thirties and forties. This therapist encouraged Stewart to start studying massage therapy.
After being the first to certify in St John Neuromuscular Therapy at the New Zealand College of Massage (NZCM) the directors asked Stewart to teach an introductory course in 1998. He soon realized that there were gaps in his knowledge and skill.
In 2000 he attended a conference in Washington DC and met some fabulous presenters, including Judith DeLany from St Petersburg Florida. In 2002 he attended two conferences in Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington to further his knowledge and connections. After asking Judith whether one day she would be interested in teaching him her method he then applied for his US green card in order to spend time studying with her.
In 2003 Stewart was a full-time tutor on the Bachelor Of Therapeutic Massage program at the Southern Institute of health (SIT). There he taught neuromuscular therapy, pathophysiology, sports massage and anatomy and physiology.
Stewart and his wife moved to the US at the end of 2003 and started his American version NMT apprenticeship with DeLany the following year. In 2005 he taught his first US class in Charlottesville, Virginia. This began a five year teaching relationship with the NMT Center, teaching all over the US. In 2007 Stewart and his wife moved to Massachusetts and there he became a co-partner in the multi- disciplinary health business, 360 NMT in Needham MA.
Also in 2007, Stewart began studying Manual Trigger Point Therapy at Myopain Seminars under the tutelage of the world famous physiotherapist, Jan Dommerholt, of Myopain Seminars. He became the first licensed massage therapist to pass the course and become a Certified Manual Trigger Point Therapist, CMTPT.
In 2009 Jan asked Stewart to begin remodeling and teaching the manual therapy course for Myopain Seminars. He has now taught seminars throughout the United States, Vancouver, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
In 2011 Stewart was asked to become a member of the Certification Board Of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists (CBMTPT). First he had to pass the board exam. That made him double certified in Neuromuscular Therapy and then double certified in CMTPT. In 2015 he left 360NMT to start Myopain Solutions in Dedham MA, where his thriving clinical practice continues to this day.
