Radio Interview About Susan Ginsberg
In October of 2007, I founded Stop and Breathe®. A former yoga/meditation instructor and educator for many years, I began to see the benefits of the practice of healthy breathing and relaxation/visualization techniques, and wanted to share it with others outside of the yoga studio.
I reached out to my local hospital, in the Chicago area at the time, and began working with surgical patients before and after their surgery. Shortly afterwards, I started working cancer patients at The Kellogg Cancer Center, providing support via breath guidance, relaxation, and visualization techniques during their chemotherapy treatments. It was so gratifying to work these patients experiencing anxiety over a procedure, diagnosis, or treatment, and to be able to bring them peace and comfort. I soon trained others to provide this as well, and it is still going strong, despite my move to Arizona.
I soon branched out to provide this well-needed wellness service to corporations and organizations. I even provided a workshop for our own United States Marine Corps! These workshops provide healthy breathing, relaxation, and visualization skills to help manage daily stress and live a healthier, more peaceful life. I also teach insomnia-busting techniques, since so many are sleep deprived and struggle with healthy ways to fall asleep.
The greatest teachers in my life are the amazing clients that have faced various types of adversity-cancer, anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, chronic pain, loss of a loved one- and found the inner strength to persevere. When one of my students who was battling breast cancer told me that not only were the teachings I provided instrumental in her fight, but helped her cope during chemotherapy, radiation, and surgeries, I felt compelled to share these valuable tools to those in need of comfort and inner peace during turbulent and stressful moments.”
As a professional speaker/communicator, I provide wellness workshops to companies, organizations, residential communities, and individuals here in Arizona. I also provide these workshops globally via Zoom. These highly popular workshops- either live or in-person- are not only highly informative, but tremendously soothing, as well.
Recently, PHOENIX magazine selected me as one of the ‘Great 48’ influential professionals who are exemplary in their field and making a difference in their realm of business, an esteemed honor of professional recognition I was so humbled and proud of receiving.
After providing thousands of private sessions and workshops throughout the years, I released the 'Deep Relaxation Series- Guided Breathing, Relaxations, and Visualizations' to share my life’s work and passion with others seeking a way to combat the devastating impact of stress and anxiety. These easy to follow and enjoyable to listen to downloads available on nearly all music streaming sites, provide instruction on healthy breathing, guided relaxation, & visualization techniques which provide a healthy respite from day to day living and guide listeners down a path to overall wellness and healthy sleep.
There are many reasons why someone may experience stress- whether it be personal, occupational, or medical. Through providing Stop and Breathe workshops, private sessions, and my Deep Relaxation Series, I am committed to sharing these valuable tools with individuals and companies to learn a more healthful way to combat this stress and find inner peace and wellness.
