Sue Stuparek Palliative & Elder Massage Therapy

sue-stuparek“Who I am…

After 14 years working in the art world and doing studies in the music industry, I went back to school, this time to learn massage therapy. In 1994, I began a private practice. Since then I’ve integrated various body therapies into my treatments such as movement therapy (Trager), the energy work of Reiki, the subtle yet powerful work of CranioSacral, the cleansing therapy of lymphatic drainage (Upledger Institute) and the aromatic and therapeutic use of essential oil therapy.

I have passion, compassion, heart, joy and kindness with an interest and applied knowledge of end of life care with a certificate in Compassionate Care For the Terminally Ill from McEwan University Continuing Education. I’ve studied with Christine Sutherland of BC in palliative massage and Contemplative Practices in End of Life Care with Rayne Johnson of Edmonton.

I’m a long time member of the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada, and more recently with the Alberta Hospice Palliative Care Association and Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association.

Music has long been a passion. I have volunteered for the Alberta Baroque Ensemble concerts, and various events including CKUA Radio fund drive for many years. I’m an animal lover, a cat parent to Mani and Luna. I’ve been a student of yoga and meditation, cooking classes and gardening and always… a student of life!

I love talking to and spending time with seniors and am drawn to senior advocacy in healthcare. My own mother is a senior, currently living with cancer, in a retirement condo where I find my interactions with the residents fun and easy and very gratifying.

I offer gentle massages and touch therapies for end of life care in hospice and hospital settings as well as private homes, with, and without, a massage table. I can adapt to your needs.

I deeply care about our feelings of loss concerning grief and bereavement. I continue with ongoing self studies with much awareness and heartfelt attention. Please, ask me more. I am here to help and support you and your loved ones through an emotionally challenging and difficult time, with sensitivity and compassion through touch therapies. ”
