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.

Susan is an exceptional craniosacral therapist! She is beyond skilled. I can't say that I completely understand what she does. But if you need gentle bodywork to help soothe your nervous system, she is amazing. She has helped my pain, my stress, and my general state of mind. Thank you Susan!

Susan and her work are a total self care game changer. I couldn’t say enough good things about my experience and the after effects. So worth it, so grateful.

Susan is a gifted healer and has truly found her calling. She listens carefully, not only to my words but to my body. She finds the problem and gently does her best to help my body correct itself.

Susan is wonderful - highly recommend!

Susan was very knowledgeable about her methods and informed me on the process throughout the session. She was easy to talk to and helped me understand how my body was feeling before and during the session. She helped me understand what was happening with my hips when no one else could.

I’ve spent about $50,000 on bodywork over the last 7 years to help with my stomach. In one session, I‘ve had more relief than all my past bodywork combined. Though that’s frustrating, I’m grateful and can’t even get mad about it.

I love Susan! The atmosphere she creates in her space is always so welcoming. She does an incredible job and knows exactly what I need. I can’t wait until my next session!

I liked the release of emotional tension after the session, and the continuing of that these past few days.
