Philosophy and Comments        

Within our body flows the support of life. A formless tapestry of energy that beckons growth & expansion. Healing & creative energy of which we know little about---ie. the true power & magnificence of all that is. It is our spiritual connection to Universe, the Cosmic support of ALL life.

Refusal to flow w/ the support of life or rejection of that spiritual connection alters our internal landscape & our capacity to connect with SOUL, LOVE, GOD. Ruminations from Ego & muscular contraction squash pulsations of the life force energy. Our physical structure adjusts accordingly & manifests the only way it knows how to; by hardening & drying up.

Pain also triggers our body's alarm system which in turn sets off muscle reactions to grip, harden & splint the area desperately trying to do the only thing it knows how-'protect the area'. These artificial 'splints' impair & inhibit the formless energyflows within (Prana, Chi, Ki). Thus creating the inability to nourish, neutralize & heal the region. By releasing muscular tension we can re-establish these formless energyflows to move to/thru any area, hence restoring equilibrium; homeostasis, balance. Then the Body/Mind/Soul heals.

When we align w/this energy and train it up inside us we no longer remain in a state of pain or ill health. We become Vital, Radiant & free to be all that we can be. We are all infused with this vital life force energy. We are all meant to have a dynamic flow of this energy.

Dr. Susan has mastered the art of teaching, guiding & assisting others to find, feel & harness the power of their own energy, to overcome present difficulties and transform into radiant luminosity. By shifting the paradigm from external reference to internal reference we may distinguish 'who' we are from what we've been told we are and more importantly shift away from the 'stories' we tell ourselves. Her skillful assistance and encouragement allow one to gently reclaim one's own power, attune to inner guidance and balance, build, transform, evolve & finally connect back to SOURCE-Spirit.

Various natural healing modalities and techniques are customized on an individual basis so to perfectly attune and connect with the vital healing energy & thus orchestrate the healing response throughout the organism. This includes instruction on how to develop skills necessary to sustain health and vitality. Sessions honor the uniqueness & space of the individual-body/mind/spirit to restore the natural pharmacy within WITH beautifully balanced internal rhythms.

Feeling as if nothing works toward your goal of being healthy, pain free, or complete and whole again?

The answer is simple. Many of us perceive healing, cleansing and de-toxing as exclusively a physical action. The powerful truth is that our physical body is merely reflective of the landscape within. An out-picturing of our emotional, spiritual and mental selves. By addressing what is happening on the inside these changes WILL automatically reflect outwardly.

Reclaim your birthright of Vibrant Health, live life to its fullest again.

Each session is personalized for YOUR particular needs and goals. Clear old patterns, unwind your historical limitations and integrate energies for new healthy states of being.
