I'm Susan Findlay

and like most people I teach, I came to remedial massage by way of a journey

Like most people I teach, my development as a massage therapist was by way of a journey.

It began with classical dance and gymnastics back in my home country, Canada. When your body is the tool that you work with, you learn to take notice of it and it was this interest in the human body that led me to retrain as a nurse.

Fast-forward to 1992 and I stepped off the plane onto English soil and my future life. After briefly working for the NHS, I made the choice to be my own boss. Still in the health and fitness field, I worked with GPs and health centres, setting up different schemes for a range of clientele. Teaching 20+ movement classes a week and running multiple health programmes, I discovered a love of teaching and enjoyed the rewards of helping clients to reach a goal.

I trained in many forms of massage, including Sports, visceral, remedial soft tissue therapies, alongside all my past skills to deliver an integrated approach.  This is the basis from which I teach.  I have been teaching since 1998, but I'm still very much actively learning, I believe in this profession there is a real depth of information that is essential in the delivery of our hands on skills.

I'm passionate about providing the very best quality of training and that goes beyond my teaching. I am involved in many aspects of the profession one which involves the GCMT, I volunteer my time to sit on the board of the General Council for Massage Therapies with the aim to elevate our profession within other communities.


I'm not a natural born writer.
My position as a teacher and lecturer have given me opportunities to share my knowledge with a wider audience through writing but if I was given a choice, my favourite form of teaching would be, hands down (excuse the unintended pun), direct contact, but video also comes close to the top.

I admire those who are at ease with the written word, I find it a challenge but over the years and with much support and encouragement from my editor (my husband) I regularly write for a number of periodicals.

You can also catch me expressing my views, telling stories, sharing my favorite top tips, in my blog.
