Susan has such a vast knowledge of the field and the way the body works. She assesses her clients’ posture, gate, tissue condition, joint function, muscle strength, and range of motion, and responds with all of her skills to what she feels your body needs. She provides clients with guidance and information about techniques for postural improvement, stretching, strengthening, and relaxation.
Susan incorporates many different modalities in her massages. She works from a base of Swedish massage and includes elements of deep tissue, reflexology, trigger point therapy and shiatsu. Based on the clients’ individual needs, she will customize each session to ensure that those needs are met.
Her work is an art, and she is a therapist who loves what she does, continues to learn, and, with her intuitive touch, she enhances her client’s well-being. A massage with Susan is an experience to be remembered. She gives your body what it needs to be healthy and whole. She guides your body into remembering how to feel strong, flexible and relaxed.
