I’m Susan Koenig, Certified Hanna Somatic Educator and Licensed Professional Trainer for Hanna Somatic Education.  Both of these authorizations have been conferred by the Novato Institute of Research and Training, Novato, CA.


I was a student of Thomas Hanna at his first training in 1990.  After Thomas died, his widow and business partner, Eleanor Criswell Hanna, continued to sponsor, fund, and teach Hanna Somatic Education.  I completed my training under Eleanor in 1992. I have been part of the Novato Institute’s Hanna Somatic Education teaching team since its conception in 1993.


I have had a continuous private clinical practice in Berkeley, CA, USA, since 1993.  I am currently accepting new clients.  Most people come to me for pain relief from a multitude of neuromuscular complaints, surgery recovery, injuries, poor posture, and stress related activities. I do private sessions by FaceTime, Zoom and Skype. Payments to me are usually made via PayPal or Visa.


In addition to being part of the professional teaching team, I also teach private Hanna Somatic Movements classes, currently at the National Holistic Institute in Emeryville, CA and by Zoom.


My background includes 20 years as a Massage Therapist prior to practicing Hanna Somatic Education.  In the 1980s, I was the Academic Director at a large massage school, the National Holistic Institute.


Please take advantage of my free resources noted above.  In the words of Thomas Hanna, when you are on a path of seeking and attaining well-being, “Be persistent, positive, and patient.” (Somatics, p. 97)


Thank you, Susan Koenig
