Susan Christie Riel


Registered Massage Therapist

Susan Christie Riel has been a massage therapy practitioner at Advanced Healing Arts (formerly Coquitlam Massage Therapy) since February 1994 after graduating from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in the summer of 1993. She was registered with the College of Massage Therapy of B.C. as an RMT in the fall of that same year. In July of 2005 she moved her practice into her home and after selling it, she decided to rejoin Dr. A. Taylor at the AHA clinic location.

Susan is also a Yoga Teacher and has been teaching since the spring of 1972 after finishing a Yoga Teacher's Training Course in the summer of 1971 in Val Morin, Quebec. She has taught in North Vancouver, Vancouver, Burnaby, California (1977) and Coquitlam over these many years since. She currently teaches adult community education courses for the Burnaby School Board and has been doing so since 1974.

Both Yoga and massage therapy are holistic health care and well-being practices that, when combined work very well together toward more optimal and positive patient outcomes. Susan's massage therapy practice has applied the benefits of both disciplines in the treatment of her patient load and therefore her practice has always focused on overall stress reduction, health management, maintenance and prevention. Although many of her patients started off coming to her for massage therapy after car accidents, surgery or major illness ( after being referred to her by their physicians) they most often continued treatments after recovery for overall health maintenance and prevention therapy.

Mary_van_GeynCertified Reflexologist

REFLEXOLOGY is a method of stimulating the REFLEX POINTS in the feet that correspond with each of the body’s organs and functions. It is a perfect fit with massage therapy, chiropractic, and all other healing modalities. By rebalancing and deeply relaxing the body's system, the effectiveness of other treatments are vastly improved. WHOLISTIC, NON-INVASIVE and GENTLE, it is a beneficial for all ages – infant to seniors!

Following a detailed mapping of the body, gentle pressure is applied with the fingers and thumb of the practitioner on the plantar, dorsal, lateral and medial sides of each foot. Correct stimulation of these reflex points causes a release of trapped stress and tension, bringing about a deep state of relaxation. Toxins are also released, and ones’ natural energies flow freely, assisting to normalize the entire system. The body is REVITALIZED and SUPPORTED in its own healing process.

Mary van Geyn has been offering Reflexology for 7 years with her fellow practitioners at Advanced Healing Arts. She obtained her certification from the Pacific Institute of Reflexology, completing both Basic and Advanced Clinical courses. She is currently a Board Member with the Reflexology Association of BC, acting as their Membership Director. She attended both UBC and SFU, and holds a B.A. in Communications – Interpersonal Relations.

What is a Medical Herbalist?

When treating the client a Medical Herbalist seeks out the underlying cause of the health problem and, once identified, it is this, which is treated rather than the symptoms alone. A Medical Herbalist can also provide accurate information on any possible contraindications and/or potential drug-herb interactions.

Medical Herbalists are highly trained practitioners that combine the use of botanical medicine, science, nutrition and supplements to restore health. Medical Herbalists are not doctors, nor do they diagnose; they are, however, trained in the same diagnostic skills as orthodox doctors and take a more holistic approach to illness. They have completed at least 4 years of study in Herbal Medicine and have had extensive training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, clinical assessment, pharmacology, biochemistry, botany, materia medica, and philosophy of Herbal Medicine, therapeutics and nutrition. The National Institute of Medical Herbalists is a worldwide recognised governing body representing herbal practitioners, originally founded in 1864.
