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's ability to "listen to my body" and to me surpasses all! Her skills are exceptional and unique.

Susan turned my last resort before a second surgery into an experience that enexpectedly helped me become pain free. I have 4 herniated discs and have been suffering from sciatica and severe lower back pain for 8 years. I’ve tried everything - yoga, trigger point injections, physical therapy, surgery, etc. This is an unconventional treatment that all chronic pain victims should try.

The experience exceeded my expectations. Amazing how she is able to read my body so well. She confirmed so much of what I already suspected and was able to explain things that I did not know. I look forward to allowing her to help navigate on this holistic journey.

You have very “nurturing hands”—I was never uncomfortable and trusted you completely. I’m SO not a “crunchy” person, but you just have great energy and very positive vibes! Thank you and I’ll be seeing you again soon:
