Suzanne Pazandak

Shiatsu Therapist

Originally from Vermont, Suzanne left home to study social work in North Carolina.  After graduating, she set out to live overseas where she spent many years exploring and learning more about what she really wants in life. It wasn’t until she became very committed to her own healing journey that she found shiatsu. Very quickly she learned how much it helped her and years later went on to study over 2,000 hours at the Shiatsu School of Canada.  Suzanne is honored and passionate to offer her support and continues to be amazed every day about how healing touch can be on so many levels.
