What we Do at Sound Performance: Occupational Therapy
Are you a musician with an injury? A vocalist who has lost your range? Do you have performance anxiety?
Are you seeking a health care provider who understands your medical issues and psychological challenges, as a fellow musician? Are you ready to get better and take a journey to wellness?
There is no end to improvement.
Susan Yee, an occupational therapist for 21 years, researched musicians’ injuries for her Master’s thesis and has been playing the piano since she was 7 years old. She is a Certified Psychosocial Rehabilitation Recovery Practitioner (CPRRP) and Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner(cm). Developed by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), the Feldenkrais Method® is a sensory motor education that uses your ability to learn to reduce pain, increase performance, or overcome obstacles. The emphasis is on body awareness, so you can improve how you interact with your instrument as well as your environment. You can learn how to be more expressive musically, to avoid injury, and to heal more quickly. The Feldenkrais Method® has been taught worldwide for over 70 years, helping people recover and improve their function after injury and illness.
Services are confidential. There are a variety of options to choose from. Susan provides individualized sessions, weekly classes, workshops, and consultations.
Susan has focused her practice to help performing artists be at their best so they can help us be our best.
