Dawn Sutton LMT
After receiving her first relaxing Swedish massage in Philadelphia, she quickly found herself a passionate student of bodywork. Soon after, Dawn relocated to Chicago attending a 710-hour accredited massage therapy program. Through this program, she was exposed to a great variety of bodywork modalities.
Dawn has since continued to expand her skills and vocabulary of massage and bodywork. With the desire to learn from the best and to experience the source of this knowledge, she has traveled to Thailand and India taking her time to study traditional bodywork from the asian masters. This in-depth training has inspired Dawn’s passion, providing both authentic and traditional bodywork, as well as, developing fusion modalities in blending traditional eastern bodywork with the core techniques of more western approaches. Dawn maintains a successful independent bodywork practice and enjoys sharing her knowledge and experience by training to those that wish to begin learning these profound and healing techniques.
