Suzanne

Suzanne has treated numerous ailments, but what she is really attracted to most is helping people with their pain and dysfunction after car accidents, chronic pain and postural correction.

She also has a special interest in women’s health, specifically before and after giving birth, knowing first hand the benefits of massage throughout pregnancy and after. Suzanne is a very open-minded practitioner and works with patient’s individual goals, seeing to it that if she can’t help them at Living Wellness, one of her devoted team members can.

In 2015 Suzanne decided that being a mother and partner weren’t enough hats to wear and decided to go back to school. She has since completed her first year in her training to become an Osteopath. This 5-year program will allow her to treat her patients with more precision that integrates well with her existing knowledge of massage therapy.

Suzanne’s life growing up and the terminal illness of her father lead her to choosing the path of healthcare. Along with her passion for discovering the world and exploring new territories, she decided on Massage Therapy as her craft and graduated from WCCMT in 2009. Massage therapy has allowed her to travel throughout Asia, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Europe and all across Canada. She has had the privilege of working with the Canadian Paralympic Alpine Ski Team at the 2010 Paralympics, as well as working with athletes in Australia of the AFL league.

Suzanne has now put her travels on hold, and is settled back in her hometown of South Surrey with her growing family. Her passion to explore now involves staying a bit closer to home with her partner Andrew and daughter Zoey in tow; hiking, biking, swimming, paddle boarding, snowboarding, and nowadays more frequently puddle jumping or sand castle building.

I feel very comfortable in Suzanne’s care. She is very mindful during the process, always checking in and asking questions when treating me, while addressing my current needs. She teaches and explains what I can do to help with how my body is healing. I would definitely recommend Suzanne to others, especially women. She is calm, thoughtful and genuinely cares. It is comforting knowing she is familiar with how to treat specific female needs and that she takes the time to research and learn more how to help.

When I came to see Suzanne, I expected treatments to be relaxing with temporary pain relief following a car accident. My greatest surprise was the lasting effects from session to session. My muscle pain improved with each treatment. As a therapist I found her to be very approachable easy to talk to, and willing to research all avenues to help improve my physical condition. I would highly recommend Suzanne to other friends and family members. I feel she has amazing skills with her hands, and goes the extra mile each and every time I come.

My biggest fear about coming to a new RMT was that it would be another temporary fix and I would feel good for a day or so but the pain would return. It was different with Suzanne. After following the recommendation of two friends, I knew I would feel at ease with her and I was right. She listens to what is causing your pain, where it hurts and takes a holistic assessing all the problem areas and how they are interconnected. I am more pleased that she combines her knowledge of massage therapy and her studies of osteopathy to go beyond a massage. I came to her with an old wrist injury and she was able to reset it using her osteopathic techniques and it has been great after only the one treatment. Suzanne uses her experience, knowledge and studies of massage and osteopathy to help your body heal itself. She is very easy to talk to and provides caring treatment.
