About Us

Susie Garton has been providing pain and stress relief since 1998.  Her primary training is in Focused Touch Shiatsu, which is a Japanese form of acupressure.  This has evolved into offering clients the best of both worlds, with a combination of Shiatsu pressure and various other massage techniques. If preferred, Shiatsu can be received alone without oil or lotion through loose comfortable clothing or full coverage sheets.  Each massage is tailored to each client's particular issues, whether its relief from migraines or help with neck, shoulder, back pain or simply a quiet place to relax and renew.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Susie does amazing work and creates a calm, relaxing environment. Highly recommend!

    Susie is the best!!! She focuses on trouble spots but hits all areas so when you leave you know you'll feel better. I miss the Solon office but will travel a longer distance to continue receiving her services.

  • Susie is the best!!! She focuses on trouble spots but hits all areas so when you leave you know you'll feel better. I miss the Solon office but will travel a longer distance to continue receiving her services.

    Very professional, always prompt and pleasant. Outstanding massaging skills most importantly. Good side suggestions, such as stand up straighter and raise your chin when you walk; put pillows under your book or computer so you don't hunch over it too much.

  • I always recommend Susie to anyone that wants to get a massage. She is very knowledgeable about what points in your body that needs to be dealt with whether you have lower back pain, sore legs, etc. I have been going to her for massages for about 20 years now and would not want to switch to anyone else. She is the best!

    I enjoyed the massage. Atmosphere was quiet with relaxing music. Ample parking too.

  • Wonderful experience all around!

It is definitely a positive experience to have a massage with Debbie - she is professional in every way but yet has the wonderful ability of making one feel that there is also a personal connection. Her response to the problems dealing with the Covid situation has been outstanding in her efforts to abide by all the rules and suggestions provided by the medical field - which is for the benefit of all of us who are her clients. I look forward to continuing to see Susie as my 'massage person'!

Susan is amazing. Susan is so kind, and understanding, and beyond professional.She helped mend my back injury with two massages!! Until I saw her, I couldn't sleep in my bed due to the pain.

Safety and cleanliness top notch! Total “ contact-free” experience for a massage! Susie gets it hands down! From temp on arrival, hand sanitizer on entry and exit, tote for clothes. Mask and shield on and the best massage for right shoulders and headaches! She is also the kindest and sweetest person!
