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.

I’ve gone to Susan for back pain when doctors could find nothing wrong and after first session began to feel relief. I also come in with a headache and it was relieved by the time I left. Susan is excellent and also great at explaining what is going on in the body.

Susan has the magic touch. I always fall asleep and snore during my sessions . I didn’t this time because I had a lot to unload but my experience was awesome!

Susan is terrific. She unwound so much of the twisting that I brought in through her door that I can breathe again. Relief!!!

Had a great first experience, already starting to feel tightness loosen up in areas I was having issues with. Highly recommend.

It is always an amazing experience- I always leave fully relaxed and physically feeling much better.

Susan is wonderful - kind, gentle and open. I didn't really know what to expect, but it was really gentle adjustments, almost not noticeable unless you are paying attention and staying really present. So much energy was released from my body and tears started flowing when she put her hands on my rib cage. I have only been for one visit and think I would need repetitive treatments to fully realize the true benefits of this therapy, but I would recommend this to anyone looking to release energy and regain internal balance. Perhaps if other modalities, such as intense breath work, have not worked as well, this more gentle, meditative (but still physical) therapy would be a great choice. Susan is also very good with Covid safety precautions and creates a safe, nurturing environment.
