I have been practicing massage since 1997. My interest in health and healing started early, learning from my father who is a chiropractor.
My first formal education in bodywork started in the summer of 1997, when I participated in a two-week training in Lomi Mai Ka Na'au (Massage from the Center of Being), an ancient hawaiian healing massage. Soon after, I continued my bodywork education by attending the 500 hour Professional Massage Therapy Program at Virginia School of Massage. I am proficient in a number of massage styles, including deep swedish, deep tissue, sports, and myofascial/connective tissue massage.
I have worked as a massage therapist in a variety of settings over the last sixteen years, including chiropractic offices, upscale day spas, prestigious hotels, corporate offices and private practice. I work with people from all walks of life and have experience addressing an array of health conditions.
I am currently enrolled in chiropractic school and will graduate in the spring of 2015. I love my work and am honored to serve my community as a health practitioner.

“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.
