The Full Story
Philosophy & Biography
With more than 25 years in the practice of bodywork, Sue brings many modalities, experience and a deep base of knowledge to her work.
The body is always speaking. It is the therapist’s job to listen to the body and respond. This work is about communication. Therapist experience matters and so does trust and connection.
An open minded approach to treatment and flexibility in strategy is key.
Patients come first and the therapeutic relationship needs to be mutually respectful to function well.
Quiet sessions allow for both people to pay attention to the efficacy of the work. Sometimes people need to talk to relax. That’s okay too.
Questions are always welcome. This is a non-judgemental space.
