About Me

Susan Bessonette RMT

Susan graduated from the University of King’s College in Halifax (1992) and from Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic in 1996. She originally arrived at massage therapy as a profession through sports, but grew to appreciate all areas of massage. She maintains a home based practice and outcall/housecall massage practice, as well as instructing a variety of classes in the Massage therapy programs.

Always interested in continuing education, Susan completed a certificate in Adult Education from Centennial College, as well as continuing education in the field of Massage therapy practice. Susan loves to be in the classroom, either as a learning participant or a learning facilitator.

Susan has had opportunities participating in research for Massage therapy, as well as a reviewer for a journal for Massage therapists.

Susan believes in that one’s professional practice is a continuous evolution and growth. She feels it is important to stay current and maintain an evidenced based practice.
