★★★★★ No More Pain!

Lois C.

I feel very fortunate to have found loosenupmassagecenter. Susan has a magic touch! I am a long time sufferer of migraine headaches and Susan relieved my headache in one visit. I walked in with my head dragging after two weeks of headaches and she hit all the right points. I have more energy and no more pain. Thank you Susan!

Sue is the best. She knows more than any massage therapist I've ever been to and she really understands trigger points. She has helped me with migraine headaches, wrist pain and chronic neck and shoulder pain. She will research trigger points and do her best to learn more about an issue I'm having. She keeps in touch, is easy to schedule, and her office is warm and inviting and clean.

Sue is extremely professional, and knowledgable. I have had chronic neck & shoulder problems related to double-mastectomy and other surgeries. I had a lot of concern about how massage therapy would effect implants and areas of scar tissue. Sue understood my concerns and helped me to relax and feel confident in her skill and knowledge. She has given me insight and exercises to help as well. Sue is excellent!




Very therapeutic message! Quality!! Quality! I love Sue's nurturing touch! 5 -tar all the way.Very professional and caring and she pays attention -- Sue knows her stuff!




Sue is wonderfully gifted. In over 25 years of regular massage from her, whether for strained muscles, stress or to maintain my sanity, she gets it right every time. Sue has a great sense of humor, is a warm and nurturing person, and really connects.




I have been "loosened -up" for many years and can't begin to describe the amazing results I have personally received. I have arthritis and am 72 years old so this body needs a lot of TLC . Sue has relieved my chest tightness, knee pain and swelling, neck tension, lower backache and the computer induced pain in my right arm and hand. She is knowledgeable, caring, skillful and has healing hands Thank you Sue for improving the quality of my life




Best therapeutic massage in Orange County! For over fifteen years, I keep coming back to Loosen Up to solve my aching muscles and learn new stretches to stay at my peak performance. Go see Sue!




The best massage ever. Sue is a life saver in my book. I am an older athlete who needs to stay at the top of his game and I go once-a-month to rejuvenate body. Give it try and you won't regret it.



Since I arrived to the US 17 years ago, I started teaching Russian medical and sports massage as it was proposed by Russian physician professor Sherback. Not many US practitioners are familiar with this scientifically developed method of massage therapy . Practically from the first continued education workshop, Sue started taking my classes. From the first moment I noticed that she had natural gift of healing hands and huge desire to learn new methodology. She is an intellectual and smart woman, as well as pleasant and interesting to be around. But most important I believe that she providing health beneficial treatment.

Boris Prilutsky, MA, has been teaching medical massage for over 30 years. He is the founding director of the Institute of Professional Practical Therapy (IPPT) in Los Angeles, Calif., and graduated from the Pedagogic Institute of Higher Education in Vinnitsa, Ukraine, with a degree in physical education, and Medical College in Ramat-Gan, Israel, with a major in chiropractic medicine. Boris has worked with athletes and athletic organizations throughout Europe, has been a personal therapist to many world dignitaries, and has trained thousands of therapists worldwide. He also treats patients with various neural, muscular and skeletal disorders at the Back and Limb Institute in Beverly Hills, California.



"I must tell you, I am in awe of your skills. I have been to many massage therapists over the years, only 3 of whom I consider to be excellent. One of the 3 is simply outstanding and I've never been able to imagine a better therapist. Until you. I can truthfully say that I have never had a treatment as comprehensive, effective or as creatively applied as the treatment I received from you. Who could ever have imagined that in two 2-hour sessions, I would be freed from chronic pain in my right trap which has plagued me for 20 years. I have had the plenty of treatment and it all helped. None of it ever got right to the core, or gave me lasting complete relief. I have remained pain-free in that area."

Thank you so much for being so absolutely outstanding. What a pleasure."

Dianne Kerr, Canada


"I would highly recommend Sue at Loosen Up Massage. I am a former professional triathlete who continues to run for health and fitness. Over my career I have had multiple massage therapists and Sue is number one on my list. Sue knows her stuff, and takes the time to really understand your massage needs.

I have been seeing Sue for almost a year now after breaking my ankle. With my first appointment Sue took the time to assess my ankle and understand how important the ability to continue running is too me physically and emotionally. Without a doubt Sue’s massage skills on my ankle decreased my time away from running.

I continue to see Sue for ankle and body work for health and maintenance. My ankle is not yet 100%, but with Sue’s stretching and massage work, I am able to run.

If physical activity is an important part of your life Sue is a great choice as your massage therapist."

Patty Kelly

“I used to think massage was just a treat – until I injured myself falling down some stairs about 10 years ago. After that, I found I could get very stiff very quickly and it would keep me from working out and keeping up with my hectic schedule at work. I started seeing Sue and she helped keep me on track with my goals – running the county fair, exercising regularly and keeping me healthy. If I had not started getting massages, I think I would feel old and much less likely to stay fit and enjoy retirement. Massage with Sue is a cornerstone to a healthy lifestyle!”

Becky Bailey-Findley
Retired CEO
OC Fair & Event Center

“In 1995, I got a massage at my gym from Sue. She was a massage student, and I had to laugh when she asked me if I wanted to listen to music or chanting monks on tape. Then she started the massage. I felt great for days afterward. It helped with golf; it helped with beating the other sales team at work. Massage helped when I started my own business, and it helped keep the peace at home while we ran our business and raised four kids. My wife and I have gotten massages at least twice a month for the past 10 years, and we credit keeping our health and wellness to Sue’s TLC. I never did hear the chanting monks, and Sue’s awesome hands and sense of humor are a bonus!”

Mark Reynolds, Anaheim Hills

"Sue is my very own 'Toxic Avenger!' She removes stress, maintains my optimism toward life, and prevents bad stuff from happening. Sue's skills make her a super-hero in my life!"
