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. 
** Please note during the Covid-19 pandemic, after being allowed to re-open, there will be some limitations to scheduling.  I will be following the CDC, State, and Massage Therapy guidelines ...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Session was exactly what I was looking for - combination of Shiatsu and Massage. I felt relaxed and refreshed after the session. Felt very comfortable going in with the Virus precautions she has in place. Thank you!

    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!

  • Susie is professional, engaging, but not intrusive. She is skilled at finding and working problem areas. We always feel better after a session with her. She is taking extra steps for cleaning so that clients feel safe when visiting.

    The type of massage from my professional that I need on a regular basis especially going through the pandemic. Susie is the best therapist that I have ever had.

  • I always feel better after each visit. Susie always asks if there are certain areas that need some extra attention. Getting a regular massage makes me feel younger after each visit. :) Cindy

    Provided a very safe environment for massage, given covid19 threat.

  • I had an absolutely wonderful experience. From start to finish I felt that everything was handled with the greatest professionalism. I also appreciated all steps made toward sanitizing and preventing the spread of COVID.

    Susie gives the best massages and I would recommend her to anyone needing a nice relaxing massage. She is very conscientious during the COVID crisis and I feel totally comfortable/safe getting a massage with her during this time.

  • Susie is taking outstanding steps to minimize the risk of spreading COVID.

Susie always seems to find the trouble spots. She's incredible.

The best massage I've ever had is with Susie. She has that perfect pressure that I like. She is also adding lots of extra precautions during Covid, which she knows is extremely important to my family with a medically fragile child and my elderly mom in the home. I felt so safe and it was great to get back to my massage time with Susie!

Susie is very professional. She always asks how I’m doing, if I have a particular area of my body that is bothering me. I like the environment of the massage room, lighting, soft music.
