It's All Connected!

When I was 25 years old, I got my first massage.  That experience blew me away.  I began learning massage techniques soon after and practicing them on people in the customer service department where I worked.  One day Janeen, the supervisor on shift that day, pulled out a bottle and shook several pills into her hand.  I asked if she had a headache and if I could try to help.  After five minutes working on the sinus pressure points in the back of head, she put the pills back in the bottle, smiled, and thanked me.  I knew right away that this was for me.  It was then that I decided to go to massage school. 


15 years ago, I studied Integrated Sports Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy alongside traditional Swedish techniques at ASHA School of Massage in Atlanta, Georgia.  I practiced Myofascial Release, Russian-style Medical Massage, and specialized stretching techniques for the first 8 years of my practice.  I really fashioned my own form of the techniques I was taught and practice a unique blend of my own creation.  I am currently becoming certified in two amazing gentle techniques that complement my skills, Visceral Manipulation and BioDynamic Craniosacral Therapy.  

I love to geek out on the anatomy and structural parts of my work as well and tune in and deeply connect to my own intuition as well as the deep wisdom of my client's body.  It's a truly Connected experience!  Left brain meets right brain.  East meets West.  Logic meets intuition.  

I work out of my home office in the Kirkwood neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia.  I live with my partner of 12 years and our 6 year old daughter.  I love to read to my daughter, ride bikes and play with her at the park.  I relish being in nature, hiking, and swimming.  I'm passionate about relieving chronic pain and educating folks about their own bodies.  In the cooler weather, I can most often be found knitting up something cozy to wear.  

Massage changed my life.  Let it change yours.

Massage Therapy Educator

I have taught massage students at two different schools. First at Everest and then back to my alma mater, Asha School Of Massage. I enjoyed teaching students myofascial release, muscle energy technique, and Russian Medical Massage. It is an honor, responsibility and a privilege to get to teach students!

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Christina on Mar 18
Susan had great energy and was very knowledgeable about the body. I had a great session with her and she helped me shift some energy and and ovary back into it's proper place. I felt very comfortable with her. This isn't your typical massage therapy session but overall I left feeling great with what she worked on. My husband on the other hand has an almost life changing session with Susan and she helped him deal with a lot of residual body stress and helped with some structural reworking that stemmed from a horrible car accident he had as a teenager. I would highly recommend Susan, she has a wonderful bedside manner and she does an amazing job.

I’ve been in alternative health care for over 20 years, and I highly suggest visiting here to get a true hands on experience of the work offered. Some people are skilled in this field and some are healers. Susan is both!

Susan is a skilled therapist. She always does a follow-up from the last session. I would definitely recommend Connected Body Therapy.
