The Music and Breath Approach

The “Music and Breath” approach was developed by Susanna Brakhman. Susanna is a professional musician, teacher, and performer. She is also a certified practitioner in the Japanese Healing Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Her service combines the Jin Shin Jyutsu Healing Art, along with her coaching and expertise, which will allow your performances to soar to a new level. Your music will truly give voice to your soul. According to eastern medicine, imbalance within the body can limit a performer’s work. Imbalance

can come from a variety of sources:


  • Bodily pain experienced in your playing and practice.
  • Emotional or mental frustrations that limit your concentration and enjoyment.
  • Tension and shallow breathing problems that diminish your performance.


All these issues reduce your ability to use your full potential to perform with ease and true passion. As a musician, the Music and Breath approach will help you in the following ways:


  • You will find true healing, harmony, and joy in your everyday musical practice and performance.
  • You will be introduced to amazing tools and methods that will ultimately help you to harmonize your heart, body, and mind.
  • You will learn breathing techniques to see the music you play as an expression of your inner energy flow, as well the physical state of your body.


For a group to succeed at its highest level, each member of the team is interdependent upon the others. For that reason, the Music and Breath service is also an effective practice for working with groups. We make sure that each member of the group is at their ultimate level of personal balance, bringing the group as a whole to higher performance levels than ever before!
