Susan is a graduate from the 2200-hour massage therapy program at Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic. She has worked with clients in a wide age range and with health concerns including central nervous system issues, cancer treatment, sports injuries, and general “wear and tear”. Even while working with specific impairments and injuries, she still tries to incorporate relaxation and breathing into her treatments and believes that stress-reduction can aid the recovery process.
Before finding her calling in massage therapy, Susan has worked in several other physically demanding industries, so she truly understands the importance of optimizing posture and strength to maintain a happy, healthy body. Her treatments are slow and focused, and can vary from light to deep pressure depending on her clients’ preferences. She likes to use the brain’s natural reflexes to enhance the release of muscle tissue. She also uses a combination of deep tissue, and Myofascial release to address all the layers or restricted tissue. To help get clients back to their normal, pain-free function, she creates specific treatment plans and self-care for each individual based on their needs, goals, and lifestyle.
