“Danielle is amazing! She seems to know where I hurt before I even know I hurt and then she gets at the problem area…”

About Danielle:

What drew me to massage was a desire to help others, and a curiosity about how touch/body based/holistic therapies like chiropractic, massage and acupuncture had helped me with some physical challenges- neck pain and migraines. I also had noticed that after these sessions, I felt more at home in my body and my life, for reasons my mind certainly could not explain but my body felt—less pain but also less anxiety and more ease, both physically and emotionally. This remains true for me ten years later, and the interconnectedness continues to intrigue and teach me. In a time when more people report feeling disconnected, alone, confused and rushed, as well as in physical pain, this kind of hands on, one on one, open approach feels vital and relevant more than ever.

I love the variety of challenges and goals clients bring to the table and the range of tools I can use as a massage therapist—in my case, usually deep tissue massage, myofascial release work and craniosacral techniques.

I enjoy hiking, reading, yoga, cooking (and eating) with friends and family, and learning more about balance, joy, community, the world and my place in it. Professionally, I look forward to learning more about how to support pregnant women and babies, as well as individuals dealing with headaches, anxiety and depression. I also want to deepen my understanding of craniosacral work, human anatomy and how we heal.
