Danielle2 in San Diego (Southern California), CA, USA
Having had chronic pain from poor posture, I sought out many different varieties of healing modalites from massage and yoga to posture therapy. This created a love for movement, somatics and a desire to help others out of pain.
I started my career path in therapeutic deep tissue and Thai massage after graduating from the International Professional School of Bodywork in San Diego in 2006 with over 1000 hours of training. Having studied yoga for over a decade, I became certified in 2009 upon realizing the healing effect this exercise had, both alone, and in conjunction with massage.
Still yearning for a deeper understanding of how posture is related to pain, I continued on at The Structural Integration Institute, graduating in 2012 with a certification in Alignment Therapy.
My vast knowledge of posture and healing allows me to approach the body with a more versatile eye. My goal is to not only rid people of pain, but also to educate and empower them to become an active part in this process.
“"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."
