Professional Therapeutic Massage and Energy Work

Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Cupping


Deep Tissue reaches a deeper layer of muscles, releases fascia and breaks down knots. Relieves pressure points throughout the body. This massage is beneficial for both athletes and those who sit for long periods of time, manipulating muscles to work at their optimum.

Traditional Usui Reiki


A natural energy work, Reiki helps release blocked energy and aligns Chakras. Grounding, gentle, yet powerful on many levels. Helps heal emotionally and physically. Mind, body, and spirit.



An ancient and intuitive art that reduces stress, improves lymph and blood circulation, detoxifies system of impurities, and improves energy flow.

Body work sessions may be one or a combination of techniques.

Craniosacral Manipulation


Craniosacral work is a gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones in the head, spinal column, and cerebrospinal fluid. It releases tensions deep in the body, improving whole body-mind health and performance. Great for optimizing brain power.

Excellent in combination with Reiki.



The goal of Swedish Massage is to melt away muscle tension and increase the blood flow to your heart. Swedish Massage is extremely therapeutic as it decreases muscle toxins, increases oxygen levels in the blood, and improves flexibility in the body, while relaxing.

 Perfect if you prefer a gentle relaxing touch.

Pregnancy Massage


Enjoy a much deserved massage on a specially designed body cushion with a "break-away tummy" to fully support you in comfort while laying on your stomach.  Helps reduce fatigue, leg cramps, head and back aches, and general discomfort during pregnancy.

Benefits of Bodywork

If done on a consistent basis there are many excellent health benefits.

Results are cumulative.  Effects are immediate and on-going.

Relieves pain, stiffness and tenderness throughout the body.

Regular massage causes muscles to become firmer and more elastic.  Muscular atrophy caused by inactivity can be delayed by massage.

A muscle being massaged has three times more blood passing through it. This increases the nutrients brought to the muscle and improves circulation.

Lactic acid, the by-product of strenuous or repetitive  exercise is removed. Buildup of toxins is relieved.

Bodywork helps lower blood pressure.

Massage aids in the removal of metabolic waste by stimulating the lymphatic system.

Mental strain is reduced and a feeling of deep relaxation is achieved through bodywork.

Bodywork allows the client to become more aware of their body, enabling a state of equilibrium of the internal environment called homeostasis .

Bodywork produces a greater feeling of well-being and confidence. It can help ease depression.

Bodywork is extremely effective in prevention, maintenance and healing.




I do a lot of crafting that involves detailed work and repetitive motion. As a result, my neck and shoulders get quite knotted. I see Sue at Stress Escapes on a regular basis to relieve the tension. As a regular client, Sue knows where I carry my stress and how to get the knots out. Having therapeutic massage with Sue allows me to continue with the activities I enjoy.

Laurie M., client since 2001

No more aches, pains, or frequent injuries. I've been seeing Sue now for many years. I've never been healthier and my body never felt so good! Thank you Sue!

Dave S., client since 2000

I'm a firm believer in ongoing therapeutic massage as a key part of my wellness plan since suffering from sciatica in my 40's. I've seen several great therapists over the years, but Sue is a standout. Beyond her obvious skill is an intuitive understanding of what I need each session. She is the best!

Jim M., client since 2011

I love Sue @ Stress Escapes. She has always treated me like family. She's done my pregnancy massage with both my kids and really does an AMAZING job. I really can't say enough about her.

Jen B., client since 2003

I look forward to seeing Sue every two weeks. She always asks what is going on with my mind and body and tailors an hour of Massage, Reiki, CranioSacral, and Reflexology work, depending on what I need. I haveMS and she is absolutely essential to keeping me healthy.

Kelly M., client since 2011

I have scoliosis and my back gets thrown out (particularly this winter with shoveling). I have bodywork with Sue once a month and she works miracles! I have referred her to others and two of the responses were that she is "awesome" and that it was the best massage they have ever had!
