Suzanne Kelly BA/RMT holds a Bachelor of Arts with concentrations in Visual Arts and Psychology. Drawing the human figure inspired her love of anatomy and led her to pursue a career in massage therapy.
After spending years stooped over the drawing board she became sensitive to the postural strain potential for anyone whose job requires prolonged seated postures. Through her practice and education she’s acquired lots of tips and tricks to help clients navigate work related stress and holds a specialty in neurological conditions. She is most interested in the reciprocal relationship between the mind and body and seeks to provide treatment that is deeply relaxing to both.

In addition to her barefoot massage training, she has taken courses in hands-on deep tissue techniques, aromatherapy, perinatal professional development (including Doula training) as well as a hatha vinyasa yoga teacher certification.
For all treatments, she aims to merge a gentle deep tissue approach within the context of the relaxation response. Her clinical focus is unique to sports performance and injury management as well as pregnancy massage but is happy to work with clients on a variety of stress management goals.
