Akiko in Paris, France

Massage Therapist

I have worked as a freelance photographer both for the press and the music industry during the last 10 years, although I have always felt attracted by natural therapies and energetic healing.

I thus decided to take up another of my passions and became a masseuse. I was very interested in the technique of Thai massage and decided to get trained directly in Thailand to learn traditional Thai massage. My first trip to Thailand was 5 years ago. Since then, I have given massages to private customers.

Thai massages are best practiced on the floor and I usually use a futon, although I can also work with a massage table. During events and forums, I practice the massage Amma where the client is seated on a chair.

  • “To Whom It May Concern: I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...) The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had. Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her. I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day. Best Regards, Brett Manager – The Weepies”
