I wanted to share something with you...I exercised this morning. It was the first time in probably 10 years that my heart rate went up and my neck/throat didn't hurt! I credit the breath session (EERT) on Friday! Thank you!

Mi nombre es Paulina. Desde hace 6 o 7 meses había estado padeciendo de dolores en mi pierna derecha a nivel de la unión entre el fémur y la cadera. El dolor iba y venía. Fui al doctor y en sus chequeos me había mandado medicamentos para aliviar el dolor y me había sugerido hacer terapia física y enviarme donde un especialista si mi condición no mejoraba pronto.
Cuando conocí a Susan estaba en una de mis etapas de dolor fuerte y ya había empezado a cojear. Susan me ofreció una terapia de alineación de mi columna y pensé que sería bueno alinear mi espalda y deshacerme de otros dolores que ya se me estaban presentando en la pierna izquierda por tratar de compensar y disminuir el dolor en mi pierna derecha.
Susan empezó con su terapia evaluando minuciosamente mi posición. El lado izquierdo de mi cadera estaba desplazado hacia adelante y jalaba los músculos de la cadera derecha haciendo por otro lado que los músculos de mi estómago se relajaran y perdieran su flexibilidad. Las primeras dos sesiones fueron muy relajantes y noté que dormía mejor; para la tercera o cuarta sesión empecé a sentir mucho dolor en mi pierna. El proceso de alineamiento había empezado!
El dolor era bastante fuerte, pero Susan me explicó que era una señal de que se estaba operando un cambio positivo en mi cuerpo. (Ciertos músculos que no tenían sensación estaban “despertándose”). Los músculos de mi cadera izquierda y derecha empezaron a relajarse y los músculos de mi estómago comenzaron a volver a su estado normal de tensión. Susan sugirió aumentar el número de terapias a dos por semana y para la sexta sesiones el dolor había desaparecido por completo.
No fue un proceso fácil, pero gracias al conocimiento de Susan y la Terapia de Estructura y de Energía pude comprender que no siempre el dolor es malo y ahora he recuperado la movilidad completa de mi cuerpo, puedo dormir mejor y lo más importante estoy sin dolor.

My name is Paulina. Six or seven months ago, I began suffering from pain at the top of my right leg where the hip bone and femur meet. The pain came and went. I went to the doctor and after examining me, he prescribed medicine to alleviate the pain and had suggested I do physical therapy. If my condition did not improve, he would send me to a specialist.
When I met Susan, I was in the midst of an episode of extreme pain and I had already begun to limp. Susan offered a therapy which helps to align the spine and I thought that it would be good to align my back and to get rid of other pains that were already showing up in my left leg from compensating and trying to reduce the pain in my right leg.
Susan began therapy by evaluating my posture in great detail. The left side of my hip was displaced forward and, as a result, was pulling on the muscles of my right hip-- furthermore, causing the muscles of my stomach to lose some of their flexibility and strength. The first two sessions were very relaxing and I noticed that I was sleeping better; by the third or fourth session, I began to feel a lot of pain in my leg. The process of alignment had begun!
The pain was rather intense, but Susan explained that it was a sign that a positive change was taking place in my body. (Certain muscles were “waking up” which had been numb.) The muscles of my right and left hips began to relax and my stomach muscles started to return to their normal state of tension. Susan suggested increasing the number of sessions to 2 times per week and by the sixth week, the pain had disappeared completely.
It was not an easy process, but thanks to Susan’s knowledge and to Structural Energetic Therapy, I understood that pain isn’t always bad. I have currently regained full mobility of my body, I can sleep better, and most importantly, I am without pain.
I have been impressed by the thoroughness of the SET protocols that Sue uses. I have enjoyed working with her, and appreciate her skilled firm touch and kind supportive style. I started working with Sue in April 2014, and the treatments have helped tremendously to relieve pain that I was experiencing in my wrists and various other discomforts that showed up over time. Also, the treatments have been helping to improve my overall alignment and the treatments feel really good!

Sue Hayes is amazing! I've been seeing Sue for over a year now. I knew she would be able to help me after our first session. Her deep tissue techniques and the SET work have given me some immediate relief. I've had multiple neck surgeries, herniated discs, and was on a lot of pain medication. And was going to P.T. 3 days a week. Once a month, Sue works on whatever she feels I need after we have a brief talk about how I've been feeling. I no longer see the dr., go to P.T., or take pain medication of any kind. I have my active life back again thanks to Sue.
Breathwork is just one of the many healing modalities Susan uses to help bring her clients, including me, to their optimal level of functioning in their bodies; she does this on all levels, as she recognizes the mind-body-spirit connection. Through her trained coaching, I was able to move and to release deeply repressed fear,hurt, pain, and anger. It was amazing, and helped me to understand what it is we need to do in order to feel lighter and to bring more well-being into our bodies. As we soar into the Age of Quantum Physics, it is easy to comprehend how Susan is able to bring about remarkable positive changes in my ability to shed away old physical illnesses/conditions and emotional scars. She is NOT your typical therapeutic massage therapist, but so much more. I highly recommend you find out for yourself!
Sue is extremely knowledgeable about her craft, and enjoys sharing her insights with her patients. A massage with Sue is extremely beneficial because it is always customized to her patient's needs. Having suffered from migraines for years, I was desperate for a professional approach that would complement what the medical community was recommending. Sue looked at the whole body and knew what my situation needed. Her thorough, therapeutic approach to relieving neck and muscle tension has "reset" my upper body (neck, chest muscles, back muscles) to be more supportive. I feel that her mindfulness and care for the individual patient is just what I needed as part of a comprehensive approach to migraines. Apparently, my neurologist agrees because she wrote a prescription for continued, regular head and neck massages. I finally feel that my chronic condition is getting the attention it needs. Sue's caring and thoughtful approach makes coming to appointments a joy and a relief!

Yo uso mucho la computadora para mis presentaciones y como todos tengo una vida muy ocupada. Cuando llegué a la oficina de Susan, la parte de arriba de mi espalda alrededor de los hombros estaba tensa--- en verdad toda mi espalda. Lo que más me gustó del masaje fue el ambiente tan tranquilo, relajante, y la energía que sentí desde que entré a la sala de masajes. Eso fue mi tercera vez de recibir un masaje de Susan, y cada vez, me he sentido así.
Yo creo, practico, y me rodeo de personas positivas. Me encanta la delicadesa como Susan me haga preguntas acerca de en que parte quiero yo que ella se concentre en el masaje. Durante el masaje, ella me pregunta como me siento, si la presión está bien.
Esta vez, yo estaba asombrada de las bolas que sentía alrededor de mi cuello y hombros cuando ella me masajeaba---y ella me masajeaba el cuello anterior también y los pectorales para darme alivio en la espalda. Al terminar el masaje, yo me sentí como si me hubiera levado una capa pesada de mi espalda y hombros. Yo salí muy relajada. Los próximos dos días yo sentí mi espalda un poquito resentida. Susan me lo había advertido y después de ahí me he sentido como nueva.
Yo recomiendo la terapia que ofrece Susan con "mis ojos cerrados". Espero tener la oportunidad de regresar más a menudo. Yo le invito para que se quiera un poquito, organice su presupuesto y se dé el gusto de regalarse un masaje. Todos tenemos vidas ocupadas. Así pues que saque el tiempo, un momento no solo de relajación sino de alivio. Todos lo merecemos.

I use the computer for my presentations and like many people I have a very busy life. When I arrived at Susan's office today, the part of my back around my shoulders was very tense--actually my whole back. What I enjoyed most about the massage was the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, and the energy that I felt when I entered the room. This was my third time receiving a massage from Susan, and each time, I have felt this way.
I believe, practice, and surround myself with positive people. I love the manner in which Susan asks me questions about which part I want to concentrate on during the massage. During my massages, Susan asks me how I feel and if the pressure is okay.
This time, I was shocked at the balls I felt around my neck and shoulders when she massaged me--and she massaged my anterior neck and my chest, too , in order to give me relief in my back. At the end of the massage, I felt as if a heavy weight had been lifted off my back and shoulders. I left very relaxed. The next two days, my back was a little sore. Susan had warned me that this may occur, and after that, I felt like new.
I recommend the therapy which Susan offers with "my eyes closed". I hope I have the opportunity to return often. I invite you to organize your budget and to give yourself the gift of massage. We all have busy lives. ...So take some time, not only to relax, but to find relief. We all deserve it!
I have been receiving Structural Energetic Therapy® from Sue since March of 2013. In my first visit, I was in so much pain. Sue was really patient with me and I appreciated that. My whole body hurt, especially my lower back. I also had off and on knee pain...which I had forgotten about...
Sue is different because she works with the "head" and she also works inside the mouth. My favorite thing that she does is when she "unjams" the top vertebra by putting her finger to the back of my mouth to release it. I usually notice the biggest difference with Sue's treatments the second or third day after--not always right after my session. The first time she unjammed my C-1 it popped again the next day while I was taking a shower. It was amazing--I felt great!
Sue's been able to get rid of a lot of junk in my body. My neck and rhomboids still hurt sometimes, but my lower back almost never bothers me anymore and I feel much straighter...and, as for the knees, I was able to climb Mt. Chocura and had no knee pain afterwards. My muscles are much looser and I'm also learning a lot about the names of muscles I didn't even know I had! I am so glad I found Sue and that she doesn't just do a fluffy massage.
I'm not one to let my body go. I exercise regularly, eat right, and meditate. Despite this, there were areas in my body that I just couldn't do anything about until I started working with Susan and using this method (Structural Energetic Therapy®). Doing yoga, I had a hard time squaring my hips. After one session with Susan, I could square my hips and could feel the difference throughout my body. I now know what being balanced really means. I've noticed how I walk straighter, and can feel all parts of my feet instead of walking on the outer edges of my feet. I no longer have cracking in my jaw which I had had since a teenager. The tightness in the muscles in my back have loosened up giving me a better night's sleep and greater range of motion in my neck, shoulders, and arms.
This was my 3rd session with Sue and already I feel a HUGE difference, not just physically, but on all levels. I know and feel that I am walking straighter and with more ease. I have no pain in my hips, my shoulders feel relaxed, my neck feels the best it has felt in years, and my head feels lighter and less congested. I felt myself skipping today because I felt so light in my body!! I have so much energy and have been motivated to do all the things on my to-do list! I also felt the energy move in many key areas today--it was incredible. This stuff is powerful! Thank you!!!
