Exeter Massage Therapy welcomes therapist Susan Koning, Registered Acupuncturist, to its team of treatment specialists.
Serendipity was in play to bring this newest addition to the EMT team. Stephanie Vandenbussche and Susan Koning share mutual clients who highly recommended the treatment results they received from both individuals – this was their introduction. After meeting and learning more about each other, they determined that EMT was a great fit for Susan.
Having practiced acupuncture for more than ten years, Susan brings a wealth of international training and experience to her work with clients.
Practicing acupuncture for eight years on cruise ships expanded her horizons, as did working with different medical conditions in various parts of the world. Susan made landfall in 2019, moving back to Ontario, her point of departure years before.
She is enthusiastic about acupuncture, including traditional Chinese Medicine, with its purpose of treating not only pain and inflammation, but improving the function and balance of almost every system in the human body. “I find it very rewarding to see impressive results, to help people with various health conditions feel better in so many different ways.”
“A wide range of common conditions are treated with acupuncture including back, neck and shoulder pain, headaches, migraines, knee problems, arthritis, and emotional issues…this ancient treatment method, used for centuries, continues to benefit so many people that have modern-day illnesses and issues.”

DISCOVERING HER CALLING AND SPARE-TIME PASSIONS:
Susan notes that her original interest was in medicine, which is why she wanted to study biology. “Then I became more interested in natural remedies which eventually led me to study acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.”
In her spare time, she is an avid gardener who enjoys working in her vegetable plots. Her love of nature leads to hike the trails throughout the area. Playing soccer is also high on her fun-to- do list.
Susan’s years at sea took her to exotic ports of call including St. Petersburg, Sydney, Monte Carlo, Cannes, Helsinki, Dublin, Reykjavik, Lisbon, Bilbao, Paris, and Dubrovnik. Travelling is still high on the wish list of this world explorer; there are many destinations she wants to explore.
