Welcome to Breezeway Massage!

marysville washington massage therapy

Hello, my name is Susan Birdzell owner of Breezeway Therapeutic Center of Marysville Washington. I’ve been a licensed massage therapist living and working in the Marysville community for over 20 years.

In addition to attending massage therapy school, I’ve received a great deal of advanced training in order to help my patients feel their best or just relax.

I’ve trained in a variety of massage therapy techniques such as Structural release therapy, Deep tissue massage, lymph draining (to name a few!) which allows me to put together a custom treatment plan based on your needs.

I listen to my patients and it’s important to me to hear your pain concerns!

​Curious about massage therapy in general?

I’ve created this website to not only assist me in my practice, but also to help people get information about massage therapy and other related products and services so that they can make better informed decisions and get the help they need.

​Even if you aren’t in the Marysville Washington area, I hope you can find something here that will be of interest or help to you as you either look for a professional massage therapist or are just interested in alternative and holistic treatments.

Breezeway Massage Therapy Treatment Plan

Many people are nervous about massage therapy. Don't be! I try to makes it as comfortable as possible for all of my patients. Here are a few simple things to expect from your therapeutic massage session to help you get prepared for your appointment.

1. All patient information gathered is in compliance with Federal regulations.

2. Patient Interview. I will talk with you to find out what your needs and/or concerns are, what your pain level is (or isn't). Did you visit due to an auto accident, is your injury related to your employment or are you taking some time to relax? In any case, I will talk with you and Listen to you. Try to be as descriptive as you can you to assist me in isolating where your pain and/or tension is.

Breezeway Therapeutic Center is located at:

1606 4th street, suite C Marysville Washington, 98270

Office: 360.657.2755

3. Postural Analysis. I will check for differences of you left, right front and back to help determine treatment. You may be surprised at how tension on one side of your body is causing pain on the opposite side!

4. Treatment begins! It's important to now listen to Susan as she begins treating you. Again be as descriptive as you can so she can adjust her treatment accordingly.

5. Most treatments last approximately 1 hour, Longer sessions available. Need more time? No problem! Just Let me know and I will adjust your time accordingly.

When You Should Not Get Massage Therapy

Are there times when it may not be beneficial to receive any kind of massage therapy?

As beneficial as massage therapy can be for helping to relieve stress and pain, there are definite instances when massage is more of a hindrance than a help.

While we can't account for everything, below is a short list of situations that you should avoid massage therapy. If one of the below conditions describes you, I would ask that you wait on making any appointment with me or any other massage therapist.

1. ANY EMERGENCY! If you have an emergency seek medical attention immediately. There is no such thing as an "emergency massage".

2. Immediately after an auto accident, sports, industrial or other injury when you're in an acute stage of inflammation. A massage may do more to aggravate your injuries than help it.

3. Any condition with "Itis" at the end of it (Burcitis for example).

4. If you're Using any drugs or alcohol. Drugs and alcohol diminish you're ability to give proper feedback when asked about your body. If your ability to articulate conditions of your body are impaired, you risk putting myself or any other massage therapist in a position of accidentally injuring you. Massage therapists are in the business to heal not hurt!

5. Certain Cancers and other conditions like shingles without permission from your doctor.

If you're still unsure, feel free to give a us a call by phone or send us a note on our contact page.

Scheduling Policy for Breezeway Therapeutic Center

This is the part where I have to be a little stern for the sake of my patients.

Massage appointments are scheduled weeks in advance. I ask that you respect this cancellation policy and understand that Short Notice Cancellations and Missed Appointments hurt service quality.

I know that life is complicated, and sometimes there are situations that are out of your control (family emergency, sudden illness, etc.) in those cases an exception may be made and I’m happy to work with you. This policy is only in place to encourage common courtesy and respect everyone’s time.

Breezeway Therapeutic Center requires a 24 hour advance notice if you must cancel or change an appointment. Changes or cancellations less than 24 hours in advance will be charged for the full price of the originally scheduled session unless. Cancellation fees must be paid prior to your next appointment.

No-shows: Anyone who forgets, consciously chooses to forgo their appointment for whatever reason, or doesn’t call will be considered a "no-show". You will be charged for the full price of the originally scheduled service.

Late Arrivals: If you are running late, please call within the first 15 minutes of your session. If you do not call, you will be considered a "no-show" and the remainder of your time will be released.

If you have any other questions or a special situation, call Susan at 360.657.2755
