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!

Susan has a great spirit and sense of connectedness!

Susan isn't like any massage therapist you've been to before. She's gentle but effective. Often my issues have been helped with only a few appointments, though you'll want to keep coming back.

Susan is excellent and I highly recommend her.

Hard to put into words. Susan's understanding of connective tissue and the heart and I could feel some shifts happening, while also feeling comforted and guided. great stuff!

I liked how sensitive you were to my body. I liked that the procedure was pain free and drug free. I liked that you spent time to talk and the smell of the room!

Susan is not only highly skilled but also empathetic and attentive. She seems to really care about her patients. She extended my session longer than scheduled to finish the treatment and wants me to let her know it's effects over the next few days. I will definitely be seeing her again. Thank you.

Susan is a true healer. She listens to you, she listens to your body, she shares her learning, and comes to the process with compassion, laugher, and an expectation of healing. She a gift!
