Susan Potthast, LMT, CYI

Licensed Massage Therapist with more than 25 years of experience, specializing in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Reike, and Reflexology. Certified Yoga instructor.

I have a passion for helping people find ways to relieve and cope with pain. Massage therapy and yoga are two incredibly effective techniques that have been around for thousands of years and in recent decades are regaining popularity. As a licensed massage therapist and certified yoga instructor I am able to offer both of these proven pain management methods.

Global Lyme Alliance

Jen Russell - have you seen this?

For the first time the CDC will be monitoring the nation’s tick population and the diseases the pests may be carrying.

Know a lot of people struggling right now, physically as well as emotionally. The silver lining is that it is these times that refine us. It is painful but worth it. Hang in there and let me know if I can help - have a lot of tools in my "tool box"!!

Got 2015 off to a great start last week with our emphasis on opening the shoulders and lifting our mood. We are going to continue that focus this week. I want to encourage you join us: Monday - 9 at Myrna Rays, 1 at Curves, 6 at New Windsor, and Wednesday - 4:15 at Dancer's Creek Barn.

Hi all! I am back from the land of kleenex, cough drops, kleenex, humidifers, kleenex, hot (green) tea, and did I say kleenex? All I can say is thank goodness for kleenex with lotion!! So, now I am ready to get 2015 off to a good start and if it is not too late for me it is not too late for you!! In yoga we will be focusing on opening up the chest to relieve upper back/shoulder pain (from all that shivering we have been doing lately!) and lift our spirits!! Massage can help both those issues too! We are back to our regular schedule: Yoga - Mondays (9, 1, and 6) and Wednesdays (4:15); Massage - Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Lets start our new 2015 chapter by making a commitment to take care of ourselves!

Hi all - just wanted to let you that this will be the last week for a regular massage and yoga schedule. The week of Christmas and New Years I will be at Alley Outback only on Tuesdays. And, there will be no yoga. We will start back with a regular schedule the first week of January. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday with family and friends. Peace and Joy to all of you. See you January!!

Hey - hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Now it is time to not only get back into the "normal" routine but begin to gear up for the Christmas holidays. Things are going to get "crazy busy" and if you find yourself racking your brain for a special gift for a special friend or family member, remember, massages make GREAT gifts!! Gift certificates are available at the Headquarters and Alley Outback Spa. I am there Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Stop by!!

Modified schedule this week due to Thanksgiving. Yoga on Monday only, all three locations and massage only on Tuesday (one slot left!) Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and/or friends. And take a moment to say thanks for what you have and the people in your life :)

Still have openings Thursday afternoon if you want to try to get in a little stress relief before the craziness of Thanksgiving! Yoga is good stress relief too. Come join us - Mondays and Wednesdays.

http://www.doyouyoga.com/5-grounding-yoga-poses/

doyouyoga.com The word grounded gets thrown around a lot in the yoga world. In fact, we hear it so often that we probably don’t really stop to consider its importance.

What have you learned from yoga?

[08/01/14]   A quick reminder that Vicki's funeral is this morning at 10:00 at Speer Funeral Home.

[07/30/14]   It is with great sadness that I share the passing of Vicki Patterson. When we moved to Aledo 20 years ago, I wasn't sure I would be able to continue in the massage therapy business. But Vicki gave me the opportunity to continue in a field I love, and meet so many wonderful people in this community. I am incredibly grateful for what she's given to me and my family. She will be very much missed.
