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 pressu...

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.

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

Susan is not only technically very skilled, she has intuitive capabilities that let her address the underlying causes of the complaint.

I had low back pain nearly every morning for the past 25 years from an auto accident. After seeing Susan, I am waking up pain free. Her techniques are unique and the really work!
by Erin on Feb 22
Susan's space was calm, private and inviting. I felt very comfortable and appreciated the background she provided about how our session would progress, and hearing her observations during the examination. I am so used to deep tissue massage that I was amazed to feel relief without pain! It was relaxing hour of self-care. I would like to return on a regular basis. Thank you, Susan, you have definitely found your calling!

The care and attention Susan gave me, as well as her intuitive hits, helped my body to find it's natural resting place. The results were instant - thank you Susan!

She's a very wonderful woman and I feel much better

I have had two sessions with Susan...and both were so amazing. After leaving her table the first time, I felt high and happy for at least 4 hours. I've had many, many types of body and energy work, along with many releases...but this was incredible! My physical body also felt so much better....my outer hip was in pain and I was lacking mobility in my pelvis area as well, and it feels 90% better now. And to top it off, I had the BEST night's sleep both nights after having my session with Susan. I will be back soon!
