Suzanne Eccher, LMT has been in practice since May of 1995, attended the Boulder School of Massage Therapy in Boulder, Colorado and is a professional member of the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association).
My base education consisted of 1000 hours, and since then I have earned an additional 400 hours of continuing education. I have advanced training in Orthopedic Massage using client assisted techniques to relieve muscle tension and abnormal patterning. 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 provide energetic and physical balance for my client, giving them tools to recover and maintain proper physical health. One of my specialties is helping clients understand how important self care is. As they go through recovery self care is the when the body relearns it's original patterns. Self care is needed in our world more than ever. Our fast paced world and distractions of technology are over stimulating and we need to make our bodiy, mind and spirit much more resilient than ever. Self Care is something we can and must do daily.
