Susie is so supportive and knowledgeable. She is so level and calm in tense situations. She brought so much strength with her that I drew on my entire birth. She was not only supportive to me but to my whole birth team. She is someone who loves babies, loves birth, and loves people.
She was key for me in my natural birth and talked me through my birth plan, prep, and was on the phone with me up until I went to the hospital. I would love for her to be at all of my births!
I love Susie and look forward to my massages with her. Making time for self care is hard for me, but when I see Susie for a massage I feel better from the inside out, making the time and money worthwhile. She often gives me exercise tips to help with trouble spots. She knows her stuff and is so caring!
Susie helped me through some long training days with her great deep muscle massages. Highly recommend her.
Susie was our doula for our first baby’s birth in December. I say “our” because she not only supported me, but those with me in the labor room. Without her my husband and mother would have been exhausted and would have not had the knowledge of how to best help me.
Susie was a vital part of our team and I loved having her be a part of my
We planned an unmedicated labor and delivery.
We did an unmedicated labor(for about 10 hours) that ultimately ended-up needing a c-section because baby was sideways and not descending.
During labor Susie helped through each contraction and knew exactly what I liked and didn’t like through our pre meetings and while in the labor room allowed me to lead to way.
Before labor we went through essential oils that she used to help bring calm and energy to me while in labor.
Even after I received an epidural, Susie was still important to me as she was one of my support pillars and helped as we tried to push baby out.
Susie brought a calming and reassuring presence to me and my family.
Doulas are amazing and I would definitely have Susie be there for me again.
Susie is an amazing massage therapist! In the past I've had trouble finding a therapist who can get in there and do deep tissue massage like I need. But I now have to look no more! Susie has very strong hands and she's able to get right down to the root of the problem for me. She is also a very caring and calming person. She is very knowledgable on what stretches I need to do to help with my various issues that come up. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a massage therapist who knows intuitively how to relax you and /or help you to heal from any injury or just release tension.
She can do it all!
Susie is an extraordinary massage therapist. She has a natural gift for finding the core of a blockage and working it into a relaxed and open state. She has a learned ability to leverage the principles of gravity so she can push a massive amount of physical might into the healing of her clients' bodies. She's many cuts above your average therapist.
I strongly recommend her services.
Having Susie as my doula was hands down the most beneficial decision I made for the birth of my first child. It took me a little while to decide to hire a doula because I figured that between my mom, the midwives, and the nurses I would have all the help, knowledge, and support I needed, but Susie proved to be the anchor of my birth team, and I’m so glad I decided to go with her!
Out of health concerns, I ended up being induced about 3 ½ weeks before my due date. I was told on a Friday that I would be induced the following Tuesday. There was suddenly no time to do all of the things I had planned to do last-minute to prepare. But luckily Susie had kept encouraging me to prepare a birth plan, so I at least had that completed. Susie had me clearly define the roles that every person in the room would be playing and that did so much to eliminate confusion and help things flow. Because I had Susie there, she could help me with pain management, help my husband know what to do to assist me, ask questions to the medical staff I wouldn’t have known to ask, explain different options and information from the staff to me and my family, and free my other family members up to help get food and document the experience. It was so nice to just be able to focus on the baby, my husband, and myself. I know without a doubt that I would not have felt as comfortable and confident in myself and in this experience without Susie’s knowledge and guidance.
If you are questioning whether or not you should hire a doula, I strongly encourage you to do it, and to hire Susie specifically. She is kind, patient, and so easy to talk to. She will be there for you throughout the entire process, helping you feel more knowledgeable and confident along the way.
Susie will give you more than just a nice massage. She will dig in and get deep! She has helped me work through muscle weakness and pain. She’s down to earth and easy going as well. She always makes me feel comfortable.
Susie is an amazing masseuse! She has a real gift. She's also an amazing listener, and refreshingly non-judgemental, trustworthy and encouraging. I always leave our sessions feeling heard and healed. I recommend her wholeheartedly!
Susie is a gifted massage therapist! She is knowledgeable and intuitive in her ability to remedy and relieve the aches and pains I hadn’t fully realized that my body holds onto. Susie has a warm and friendly presence and is comfortable to converse with. She is able to target, and work, deep Into problem areas. She has helped me to live more comfortably in my own body, and better balance and prioritize self care.
I’ve had two back surgeries and getting monthly massages from Susie helps keep my back loose and feeling great. She talks with you about where there are issues and focuses on those areas. She’s knowledgeable about how all muscles work and explains how I can work on my back between visits. She’s the best!
Susie is the best! She has excellent knowledge of the body and the experience to get to the root of problems. She is also a great listener and respects what I know about my own body. On top of that, she is warm and compassionate and a lot of fun to talk with.
Susie is a truly gifted masseuse! She is able to work efficiently and deeply to help my body recover from all of my hiking adventures! Susie listens to me and cares deeply about helping me recover and heal properly. I would recommend Susie with all my heart!
Susie has gifted hands and a big giant heart! As a massage therapist, she is second to none. She has a deep knowledge of the body and hope to care for it. She's also a thorough and thoughtful doula. As a doula colleague, I'm always impressed by the thoughtfulness of her care for her clients. Susie's support during your birth would be a true gift.
I know Susie as both a massage therapist and doula for my niece when she had her first baby. Susie is a great massage therapist. With Susie's help I am able to do all the activities I like to do such as walking, hiking, biking and swimming while managing the aches and pains that come with age. She not only helps me with massage but also has helped me to understand the value of stretching and exercise in between massages to maintain a pain free/healthy life.
When it was time for my niece to have her first baby, Susie was an extremely important part of the birth team. She took care of all of us, kept us informed and helped each member of the team to be an important part of helping Cora deliver her daughter. We love Susie and are so thankful that she is a part of our lives. I would highly recommend her for massage and doula services.
