Note from, Suzanna Young Everett, owner of Take 5 Bodywork:  

Helping people is what I do.  This has been a very frustrating time for me, in particular because I know that NOW of all times is when we all really need to relax, decompress, and clear out all the panic and stress.  If we do so, we can actually bolster our immune systems, whereas stress and anxiety have a way of depleting and undermining our health, making us more susceptible to illness.  This pandemic is driving home that the work I do truly does benefit my community and is of paramount importance and value, especially in times like these.  For some, perhaps, massage may be a mere "luxury," but the fact of the matter is that bodywork and energy work have the power to improve mental, physical, and spiritual states of being; it works on ALL levels.  I believe that for many, the work I do plays a vital role in keeping them healthy, functional, and best able to contribute to the community in their own unique ways.

My Approach to Healing

Suzanna Young Everett, CLMT

Owner, Take 5 Bodywork

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.
