Why Choose
Take 5 Bodywork?

"It's not just about pressure, or knowing where to find the muscles, or those little perks like convenient online scheduling and a chocolate at the end of each session.  


It's not even that she's got the most comfortable table in town.  All of this, plus her sensibility, compassion, and calming energy, make Suzanna Young's healing touch something very special."                  


   --- K. Nichols     

Why Take 5

Not all massages are the same -- not by a long shot.

Most people look for an experienced professional who is skilled in the types of massage that they prefer.  They want a therapist who listens and responds to their needs and also with whom they feel comfortable and safe.


People all over the Santa Barbara area are discovering that

Take 5 Bodywork offers all this and so much more!


My Approach to Healing

kayaking SB Harbor.jpg

I have had massages that are fluffy and sometimes feel good on the table, but I leave with all the same aches I came in with.  And I have had massages where I feel I have gone ten rounds with Mike Tyson.  


I aim instead to provide a therapeutic session that not only addresses tension, aches and pains, but feels wonderful to receive as well. I love it when my client is able to drift off into deep relaxation or even slumber, and at the end of the session marvel that the pain and tension they had an hour before has alleviated.  


I listen to your individual needs and make sure that my pressure is deep enough where it feels therapeutic and beneficial, but not so deep you can’t breathe, or are otherwise uncomfortable and unable to relax.  I strive for that perfect balance of pressure and blend of modalities to customize the session just for you.
