Susan’s private practice is located in Manhattan. Her clients include artists, athletes, yogis, and business professionals. Susan brings a unique combination of sensitivity, creativity, skill, and determination to her work, to help her clients along their paths to greater health and well-being.
Although Susan’s interests were always anchored in health science, she also had a successful career in business before focusing in on the work she loves.

About the Work
Susan’s manual therapy work is informed largely by her experience and training in Structural Integration.
Structural Integration is a system of hands-on bodywork that balances and aligns the body, through work on the connective tissue. Structural Integration was founded by Dr. Ida P. Rolf more than fifty years ago, and is sometimes referred to as 'Rolfing'.

Some individuals may perceive their losing fight with gravity as a sharp pain in their back, others as the unflattering contour of their body, others as constant fatigue, yet others as an unrelentingly threatening environment. Those over forty may call it old age. And yet all these signals may be pointing to a single problem so prominent in their own structure, as well as others, that it has been ignored: they are off balance, they are at war with gravity.
