Danielle believes strongly in the importance of creating a feeling of safety in order to allow the body to release tension and restore balance. With sensitivity and clear communication, she meets each client at their body’s distinctive boundaries. And in this way, she works together towards returning to the breath and towards fostering a sense of rooted embodiment. Whether you are on a healing journey, or seeking massage as preventative medicine, Dani is humbled to work with you to better understand your own health. Her integrative sessions draw upon Swedish Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, Sports Massage, Myofascial Release Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Shiatsu, Marma Point Therapy, and Ayurvedic abdominal & face massage. Dani approaches each session with full confidence that through patience and persistence, change can and will be felt.
Danielle came to massage therapy after years of working within organic agriculture, native plant conservation and the world of specialty teas. The need to sustain her own physical vitality, cultivated her fascination with massage therapy. She believes that the preservation of kind relationships, Earth stewardship, and the creative fire, first originate within understanding our own bodies.
Danielle was born to a family of clockmaking artists, was raised within Waldorf education, and later graduated from the University of Vermont with a B.A in Geology and Music[Cello]. Danielle has traveled extensively throughout both India and Mexico studying music, Reiki and yoga [200 hr YTT], and completed her massage therapy studies at the Asheville School of Massage & Yoga. When not at the studio, you can find Dani in the garden with her cats, playing cello, and selling her artwork at bluegrass festivals.
