Suzanne Eccher, LMTÂ has been in practice since May of 1995, attended the Boulder School of Massage Therapy in Boulder, Colorado andÂ is a professional member of the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association).Â
My base education consisted of 1000 hours, and since then I have earned an additionalÂ 300 hours of continuing education.Â I have advanced training in Orthopedic Massage using client assisted techniques to relieve muscle tension and abnormal patterning.Â This method is very effective and provides muscular re-education, a critical part of healing following injury, surgery, or during the rehabilitation process.
My goal is to help find pain relief and provideÂ energetic and physical balance for my client.Â The secret to finding a great massage therapist isnâ€™tÂ just in the technique.Â Every Body and every therapist is different.Â It may take some time to make a match, but when you do there is no turning back.Â Massage then becomes a very positive and enlightened part of your life.â€
