Susan Bernhardt, AP-NAMA, C-IAYT, LMT (she/her)
The complementary health and wellness services that Susan offers include hands-on healing therapies (Tibetan Cranial therapy, Thai massage, Reiki), Ayurveda (food, lifestyle, herbs, cleanses), and Yoga Therapy (physical poses, breathing practices, guided relaxation, meditation).
Susan is passionate about partnering with people on their personal journey to address health goals and concerns using natural methods of healing. The services she offers all recognize each person as unique and view the whole of each person—mind, body, and spirit. Each of the healing arts can be used on their own, or Susan can integrate them as needed. Susan's offerings aim to truly restore health and not merely relieve symptoms.
Because these healing methods work with the body’s innate ability to heal, they can be beneficial for a wide variety of health conditions and at any stage in the healing process. Susan works with a wide variety of health and wellness concerns, including headaches and body pain, digestive issues, chronic health conditions, anxiety, insomnia, and stress.
