Massage therapist and violist tackles repetitive music injuries with preventative approach …
ITHACA NY - Suzanne Miller graduated from Ithaca College with a bachelor and master degree in music performance. Since graduating she has been actively performing as a violist in several orchestras such as the Binghamton Philharmonic and the Tri-Cities Opera. As a musician she became aware of the physical stress the body suffers from playing an instrument. While being part of several orchestras she witnessed injuries varying from mild to more severe, some even causing the player to take a leave of absence. She was drawn to massage therapy as a way to alleviate the pain and tension sometimes caused by playing an instrument, or to prevent an injury in the first place by maintaining good musician health. Suzanne enjoys working with people to aid in their recovery from injury, repetitive motion trauma, or chronic pain. She also sees the benefit of regular massage as a tool in good overall well-being and emotional health. She loves to offer her clients self-care tools to give them power to aid in their own recovery. Being a musician gives Suzanne a unique understanding of how a player uses his or her body on their particular instrument and therefore supports her work as a massage therapist.
Suzanne is a licensed massage therapist in New York State as well as nationally certified. To find out more about how massage may benefit you or to schedule an appointment please email email@example.com
