Susan graduated from the Desert Institute of Healing Arts in May of 2000. Much of her continuing education since then has been focused on medical massage—specifically Myo-Symmetrics, a technique that uses manual therapy applications to support the rehabilitation of pathophysiological soft-tissue conditions and chronic pain disorders. Susan specializes in bringing function back into the body after events such as surgery in the myo-skeletal structure, minor injury, or severe injury, such as from car accidents. Knowing that when our pain receptors get triggered, our bodies can go into a place of defense, and that this can hold us back from healing and change, her deep-tissue style is to ease into the muscle and make the transition with minimal discomfort. Susan's goal is to incorporate pain relief and function-restoration with relaxation techniques for stress relief, for a more balanced transition into physical and mental well-being.
