Susannah’s journey in the healing arts started when she was a graduate student in Medical Anthropology and travelled to Peru in 1985. She spent three months travelling in the highlands of Peru and gathering information about “magical illnesses”, such as “susto, and how they are treated by Andean healers. When she returned from her trip she knew that would dedicate her life to learning the healing arts and helping others. This led her to study Chinese Medicine and she graduated from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1999. Since then she has been practicing acupuncture and oriental medicine and also added other modalities to her practice, including Reiki and Maya Abdominal Massage. She is a Usui/Tibetan Reiki Master and Karuna Master and enjoys using Reiki in all aspects of her work and life. Susannah is the current Campus Director at the Southwest Acupuncture College, Boulder campus.
