Suzanne Scurlock

I have been in private practice for nearly 40 years helping people heal, grow and thrive through in-person and distance consultations. My sessions offer a synthesis of advanced CranioSacral therapy and energy healing. In 2015, I added Quantum Scalar Wave cold laser therapy and BioMat therapy as an option to enhance our work together.

My specialty is knowing how to translate the signals offered to you from the deep wisdom of your body. I hold space for you to listen and respond at a pace that works for you. This unique approach allows you to more easily access and tap the inner resources already available within you.

People often tell me that in sessions with me they find clarity about what feels foggy, unmanageable, or unhealable within themselves or their lives.

Then we work together to optimize their physical and emotional environment, creating a more healing and integrated flow. 

We may engage with the actual structures in your body as well as emotions and thoughts that limit or disempower you. 

Sometimes it means dialoguing with your cells or organ systems - to initiate your inner self-healing capacities. 

Sometimes it means helping you shift how you perceive something and thereby regaining your power around that circumstance. This may mean learning how to have a healthier boundary in relation to a certain person or circumstance This returns you to a sense of your own innate worth at a soul level. 

I work with lineage trauma, energetic cord cutting, and healing at a DNA level.

I have effectively worked with clients pre-and post-surgery to optimize the outcome.

I have successfully helped women prepare for conception and a healthy pregnancy and delivery.

I have facilitated people in dying with dignity and a sense of peace, as well as supporting their caregivers in maintaining their own health through this often challenging and exhausting process.

I have effectively worked with chronic health challenges and auto-immune issues - to provide better quality of life for these clients; and to slow down or halt the progression of the auto-immune condition. 

I do my best to offer the energy of Love into every session.

My Skills.

Developer: Healing From the Core® curriculum

Suzanne Scurlock, CST-D, is one of the world’s leading authorities on conscious awareness and its transformational impact on the healing process.

For more than 30 years she has empowered people with practical tools that enable them to experience joy in each moment without burning out. These skills help improve every aspect of their lives, from their health and well-being to their relationships, their careers, their creativity, even the growth of their businesses.

After decades of perfecting her methods of awakening the body’s innate wisdom, Suzanne created the comprehensive Healing From the Core® training curriculum in 1994. Today it includes a robust selection of international workshops, webinars, speaking engagements and audio programs.

In 2020 with the onset of the pandemic and the subsequent isolation of that time, she took her curriculum online and has pioneered innovative methods for effectively reaching those in need from a distance. Her entire curriculum is now available online for caregivers and therapists internationally.

Suzanne is one of the original instructors personally mentored by the late Dr. John E. Upledger. She also collaborated with the late Emilie Conrad for almost two decades. Together they integrated Emilie’s Continuum Movement with Suzanne’s Full Body Presence® to teach other practitioners how to accelerate and deepen the healing process.

Known for her honest, grounded, nurturing manner, Suzanne is adept at weaving together mind, body and spirit to create a unique and safe environment that encourages profound healing.

She is a sought-after speaker who inspires healthcare providers, coaches, executives, parents, clergy and others to stay relaxed and energized using her life-changing tools for dissolving stress, pain, overwhelm and confusion. She also provides ongoing staff development training at the Esalen Institute.
