"I believe in the body's innate ability to heal itself. Using Bowenwork's gentle light moves along with a holistic approach, I address specific restrictions, conditions and symptoms along with encouraging a natural potential for health to express itself in every aspect of my clients lives."

Sue Pfendler, the owner and founder of Balanced Bodyworks, has had a successful massage practice since 2004. She is Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, a Registered Thai Therapist, and Registered Yoga Teacher. Through a personal health crisis, Sue discovered Bowenwork through another colleague. Upon experiencing first hand her own pain and movement relief and seeing the powerful results of Bowenwork, she knew she needed to learn this modality and offer it to her clients.  

She has received her Advanced Professional Bowenwork Practitioner certification through the American Bowen Academy and continues her ongoing studies training path in Bowenwork in order to provide the best care possible. In addition, Sue has certified as an Associate Bowenwork Instructor to share Bowenwork's gentle touch care by teaching the introductory class - "Bowenwork An Introduction to Wellness in Your Hands."

When you have your first session with Sue, she will set aside time at the beginning to do a thorough health in-take and assessment to determine the best course of action to personalize each session to address your presenting conditions. In some cases, she may assign simple exercises that will help to re-align the body. These exercises are an essential part of the program to bring your body to a better state of wellness.
