About Susan &  Serenity  & Yoga

Serenity Massage came into being in 1995 when Susan Hamblen (that's me) graduated from The Florida Institute of Massage Therapy.  I am a South Florida native and moved to Stuart to begin my practice.  I fell in love with the downtown Stuart area and in 1996 rented my first space right on Osceola St ... and the adventures began...

I am in awe of the human body, love to study, & am a real book worm and life long student of everything related to the physical body.  I continue to study therapy techniques and anatomy from every angle. I am constantly adding to my knowledge base, growing my skills & staying up to date on the latest research.

In 2009 I was introduced to the newest myofascial theories through a course in Anatomy Trains (Tom Myers work). I followed that up with John Barnes MF work and took 7 workshops in one year ! I was able to get up to Maine this past summer (2013) & study with Tom Myers again. Brilliant man !  Looking into his 500 hour Structural Integration Training that begins Sept 2014.  Began KMI (Kinesis Myofascial Integration) Sept 2014.... !

The State of Florida requires more than 500 hours of initial massage therapy training and 24 hours of continuing education every 3 years.  Florida uses the National Massage Therapy exam as its' licensing test.  Susan is proud to be a member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals.

Teacher training was obtained through The Southern Institute of Yoga Instructors.  Betty Larsen and John Charping (SIYI) train teachers using an Iyengar based style of yoga.  The use of props and attention to anatomy, alignment and safety was just what I was looking for. My vision to meld massage therapy skills with a movement based training created Serenity Massage & Movement Therapy.

In 2007 I was able to purchased an office space,  built it out the way I envisioned and opened my combination massage & yoga studio.  Serenity Massage & Movement Therapy and Ahimsa Yoga Therapy... a dream come true.

The studio is located in the Central Parkway Professional Plaza on Central Parkway in Stuart.  A small oasis of calm amid the hustle and bustle.  Massage is available by appointment only.  General operating hours are Tues-Sat 10-6.  Sessions can be scheduled for 60-120 minutes.  These sessions will always start with an evaluation of your current condition.  You may choose to combine yoga and massage during your allotted time.  I love to assign 'homework' and feel, with guidance and awareness, you are the best therapist/teacher for your own body.  I welcome your input and insights and appreciate (and expect) your cooperation and participation.  I am a facilitator not a magician. Whatever is accomplished, uncovered or corrected is a joint effort.  I want to empower you to bring your attention back to your body & how you are using it. That attention is the key to a long and healthy life.
