|"In the fall I was having
pain from herniated discs in my neck. I thought
having a massage would help relieve some of the stress I was
under. I was
given Susan's name from a mutual aquaintance and decided to
give her a try.
She not only relieved the stress but helped with the pain.
I had surgery in
November and as soon as I was given the go ahead I started
again. I was now having problems with my shoulder and arm
from the surgery.
Susan has researched weekly to find things that would help
me. She has
done more for me than my shoulder Dr. and the therapist he
sent me to. I am
able to function more than I was and I realize that there
may be some nerve
damage that she will not be able to fix.
I have recommended her to other people and I will continue
to do so."
I believe that Susan is very
well-rounded in her knowledge base which gives her a variety
of “tools” to use in her massage.
She also makes a great effort to meet a
client’s needs when she gives a massage. Her effort is much
appreciate and makes her massages very effective.

Susan Nunn is a very caring
and knowledgeable massage therapist. I am a harpist, and
frequently get my shoulder and arm all knotted up from too
much practice and playing. Susan is able to find the source
of the problem and work out the kinks in a kind way. Her
use of hot rocks is amazing, and her massage room is very
serene and restful. She has given me exercises to do, and
suggestions about how to sit properly, so these problems
don’t occur as often. She has taken time, in the early
morning, on short notice, to work me into her schedule, so I
am able to play the next performance or rehearsal. I
recommend Susan to anyone experiencing shoulder, neck, and
"'Susan is Dayton's best-kept secret in
massage therapy. She does wonderful work.'--Deb Lecklider,
very successfully used a combination of yoga and massage
over the past 15 years to get me through a broken ankle,
knee arthroscopic surgery, lumbar disc regeneration and
genetic high blood pressure with minimal to no medications.
As I began to study yoga and seriously practice, it began to
show me where I was holding tension that had become a
habitual part of my body awareness. At that point the
massage was letting me relearn what truly relaxed muscles
should feel like and with the daily yoga practice the
possibility of maintaining that state as well as the added
ability to release deeper and deeper levels. : Like they
relate to letting yoga work trough the layers like peeling
an onion. I was benefiting with Susan’s intuitive way of
working to add in different modalities with table massage.
I have added in the hot stone massage throughout at
times where I felt it was almost sealing in the openings I
had gained and still enjoy it very much.
began her work with Thai massage I was very willing
to switch to that style as it is so complementary to the
yoga practice. For me it is as important to work with joint
mobility and meridian openings as it is truly from that work
that the muscles and surrounding tissues have a chance to
heal and relax. I find that even though you leave the table
massage feeling really relaxed it did not have the lasting
effect that the Thai massage does, which continues to work
throughout the following week. I think doing the Thai
massage in several consecutive sessions then adds to the
total effect. I have, after a period of several months gone
back to the table massage for a few times which allows the
body to adjust to its new way of feeling, but then return to
the Thai massage for continued deeper healing. To me the
table massage is very important in the beginning to learn
how your body should feel, but comparable to putting a band
aid on something that hurts where the Thai massage is
getting in to the hurt and making it better from the inside
so it can correct itself for true healing.
styles of massage it is also important to be open to the
psychological and emotional learning along with the
physical, which is a yogic concept as well. Each layer
that is physically released also opens more understanding
and appreciation of the emotions and perspectives that can
be let go of or changed for healing the entire being.—Vicky
The more I experience sessions with you the more I
appreciate your intuitive approach and am always pleasantly
surprised by the way you tend to home in on problem areas
(many of which I didn't even know were there) and make
connections between seemly (to me) totally unrelated areas
and use techniques that are continually new and different to
address the problems. You are second to no one.—Malcolm W.
