Suzanne Wilde

I fell in love with massage more than thirty years ago!  As an athlete and a parent, I was looking for pain and stress relief and I discovered that massage brought these and so much more. Massage therapy has been a major part of my wellness strategy ever since. As a therapist, my goal is to bring together all the health benefits of massage into my practice, including calming the nervous system, muscle manipulation, stimulating circulation and joint lubrication, and gentle stretching. I have studied many types of massage and I like to bring a variety of techniques to cater to my clients’ preferences. I seek to create a warm, relaxed environment and I encourage clients to communicate their needs.

I have been a licensed massage therapist for twenty years. I studied over 1400 hours of massage therapy at the Big Island School of Medical Massage. I am practiced in a variety of modalities including medical and treatment massage, Swedish, Thai, Lomi Lomi, Sports Massage and Deep tissue.
