My name is Vanessa and I'm a licensed massage therapist living in the Boston area.
In 2004 I participated in a four-month intensive Integrative Bodywork training on the southern coast of Portugal. The instructors were phenomenal and the setting was truly magical.
Since then I have taken additional workshops on Deep Tissue Massage, Acupressure and Myofascial Release. I am currently enrolled in a 100-hr Orthopedic Massage training to be completed in May 2014.
I enjoy working with a diverse clientele and have lots of experience traveling to various hotels, businesses and venues to provide on-site massage. I am personable, optimistic, timely and always strive to exude positive energy.
I prefer to work deep and slowly, I can do a long, flowing Swedish style massage, or if preferred I can do more focused work on a specific area of tension. I love using acupressure points and myofascial release techniques.
I was a competitive synchronized figure skater while growing up. This experience enabled me to travel far and wide for international competitions. I have a strong passion for adventure, some of my most memorable trips have been to Bali, Costa Rica, Hawaii and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. In addition to massage, I am passionate about yoga, eating healthy, and springtime blossoms.
I look forward to working with you!

“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.
