Suzanne is great!. Very relaxing environment. I first saw Suzanne for sciatic pain and it hurt with every step I took... had a massage and the pain was gone! . AMAZING!. I then saw her for lymphatic draining after surgery. I've never had this done but will definitely be doing it again. (As an added bonus...reiki) Thank you Suzanne. :)

I have been going to Suzanne for massages for several months now due to chronic pain from inflammation. It was clear to me from the very first visit that Suzanne knows what she's doing, using various techniques to ease pain in my problem areas. After trying several businesses in the area who do massages, I would say Suzanne has been one of the best. Her pricing is good and the quality is better than most. My rating is five glowing stars!

I have been to Suzanne for a series of lymphatic drainage massages to help with my chronic pain from Fibromyalgia. The morning after the first session, I awoke with literally no pain at all for the first time in a long while! The sessions are so relaxing... I melt off the table! I have also had swedish massages with Suzanne as well which are equally as wonderful!! She is also a gifted Reiki Master and her healing energy comes through with each session, giving an additional level of healing!!! I highly recommend going to Suzanne to anyone who is looking for someone who can do it all!!

I've Re-Opened!

Dear Clients,

  Happy to announce on Saturday July 11, 2020 I have reopened, as most of you are aware there are State and Federal Guidelines put into place to keep us both safe from Covid-19.

  All sessions are by appointment only, Saturday and Sundays from 8:00 to 8:00 with a 1-hour cleaning period between clients. Sessions will be at 8,10,12,2,4 and 6. Interior waiting areas are no longer permitted, clients are encouraged to wait in their cars and call when they have arrived.

  Clients must enter the building wearing a mask that covers the nose and mouth and keep it on throughout the session. I am however able to set up the face cradle using a pillowcase to form a hammock so that you may remove your mask while lying face down during the massage and put it back on when returning face up for the rest of the session. I will be wearing a mask & face shield or goggles and a clean smock during the entire session. Gloves are recommended but not required, that is up to you, the client. Hand sanitizer will be provided throughout the office.

  I have purchased medical grade anti-viral/anti-bacterial table and pillow covers. Each client’s sheets, pillowcase, face cradle cover and towel has been washed and dried at high heat with disinfectant detergent and individually bagged. Thermal temperature and Covid-19 release form need to be signed at arrival and placed in your chart. A new air filtration system will be running all the time.

  The dressing area has been modified for better cleaning between clients. Bottled water and individual tissue packets will still be available.

  The bathroom will be sanitized between each client and I have purchased a new paper towel holder, touchless soap dispenser and foot peddle garbage can to keep surface contact minimal.

  I know all this seems extreme but your family’s safety and mine is important to me. I would like to provide the same relaxing massage your used to without the worry of getting sick.

Looking forward to seeing you,

Suzanne Genest LMT, CLDT
