I took Susan's prenatal workshop and was totally delighted with it. I loved her approach of giving some instruction and letting us practice with the movements. She's clearly super knowledgeable and experienced with all of this, but most importantly I felt like she really had time and attention for me - something that I almost never get in Dr.'s offices. I left feeling much better prepared for the labor and delivery process, with simple practices I can do on my own to make both go better for my body and for the little one. So grateful!
Susan is a miracle-worker. She might not call it that, but she has helped me work through a couple of injuries. I was very impressed by her ability to identify and address my issues. I recommend her to my clients, friends, and you!
I have worked with Susan on several occasions. For several weeks I had experienced pain in my pelvic region. It hurt so bad it was difficult to sit and drive a car. I went to Susan and walked out pain free and the pain never returned. In 2011 I had an electrical shock which went through my chest area and caused a great deal of nerve pain. Working with Susan allowed me to release some of that pain. Most recently, I have had Biofield Tuning sessions with Susan and my experience surpassed my expectations. I have had issues with my brain for several years (short term memory issues, etc) and I was getting really frustrated and losing hope. I am now able to remember the names of prospects, I can remember which offices I have gone to already, etc. I have hope again! In my last session with Susan, she did Touch Work for Nervous System Regulation, and I could actually feel my C1 vertebrae move as well as my pelvis, both of which had been very painful. Susan is the most connected practitioner I have ever worked with. Her knowledge and skill produce results which exceed expectations!

Learn More About Susan McLaughlin

About me

Susan McLaughlin is a physical therapist, a pelvic health specialist, and the owner of ALIGN.  People usually come to ALIGN for pain relief, but what they really walk away with is a greater understanding of their body. Susan is passionate about facilitating clients to tune into their nervous system and habitual daily activities that affect postural alignment, tissue function and movement. With awareness, clients can create new patterns to build healthier tissues for structural support and fluid movement. Ultimately, the goal of ALIGN is to help people learn self care strategies to get out of pain, improve function, and become more vital. Because when we have the tools to heal ourselves, that is when we thrive! You can find out more on her website: www.alignforhealth.com.

My Philosophy of Care

My intrigue with the human body evolved after an injury sustained in a car accident. I experienced constant back and nerve pain down my right leg and into my foot. I tried conservative approaches: chiropractic, physical therapy, and a nerve root injection to no effect. My solution was surgery. And for a few years I was “fixed”; I was 25 at the time. Gradually, back pain returned as well as periodic SI dysfunction, and pain became the focus of my life for 10 years. My pain ranged from a moderate continuous inconvenience to short episodes of incapacitation: unable to walk or stand up straight.

In 2011 my perspective changed. I began to be more mindful about how I moved and used my body on a daily basis. I realized that I had a lot of tension in my nervous system and muscles. Within 3 months of being attentive to my postural alignment and performing other movement correctives, I was not in pain anymore.

At the time of my accident in 1994 I was fumbling with what I wanted to “do” in life. I was a college graduate with a degree in english, working for UPS slinging boxes to make my living. I had relied on my body, and because of the pain, I couldn’t use it in the job I had chosen. This experience placed me into self-reflection: I discovered that I wanted a profession that was focused on health, wellness and taking care of the body. I wanted to support other people to learn about their own bodies, to get out of pain and become vital. And so I began the process of getting an education to become a physical therapist.

I have been practicing physical therapy since 2001. In 2012 I started my own business. I transitioned away from the major medical healthcare system to a holistic and eclectic collection of skills, all of which fit under the title of my business name: ALIGN Integration | Movement. As a practitioner I meet each client with the empathy and compassion that I, too, have sat deeply imbedded in the suffering of pain, and have been able to transform my body, mind, and spirit to get out of it. You don't have to live in pain!

Susan is an incredibly gifted practitioner, and I have referred many clients to her who I felt could benefit from the specific modalities she offers. Her knowledge and depth of understanding around the nervous system and connective tissues is next level, and much more advanced than you may typically experience with other physical therapists. I personally enjoy the biofield tuning, but it's all beneficial and I always walk out of there feeling rewired and lighter. Having experienced her work first hand and heard numerous positive results from shared clients, I have developed great confidence and trust in Susan's abilities.
Susan is great at the detective work at what may be involved in your symptoms. She is able to draw from her vast experience and knowledge to guide you in your own healing process. She is passionate about her work which drives her ability to be present with each person she sees.
