ABOUT DANIELLE

Danielle is originally from Minneapolis Minnesota. Danielle enjoys cycling, music, camping, yoga, swimming, and spending time with her daughter.

Danielle first experienced massage in 2004 after she was hit by a car while on her bike. She suffered from whiplash as a result of the fall. She received massage every week for the first month then twice a month after for 8 months. Massage helped ease the pain and stress caused by this event and helped with the remodelling of scar tissue from the whiplash.

Danielle strongly believes her mobility in her neck and shoulders would have been worse off today if she had not received massage after her accident.

Danielle began to pursue her dream of becoming a massage therapist in 2009 in the United States attending East West College of Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon. She studied Swedish massage and Kinesiology.

In 2011 she moved to the United Kingdom, settling in Cardiff. Danielle has since studied at Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork. She graduated in 2012 with a level 4 diploma in Holistic Massage from the Massage Training Institute. The diploma is one of the best you can get in the UK.

 

Danielle started her business in Cardiff in 2012. She varies the kind of work she does between corporate massage, private clients and festival work. She has started the Level 5 Sports and Remedial massage course at Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork and will be finished with the course early 2019.

Danielle specialises in injury recovery. Her massage treatments cater to each individual client’s needs. She treats the body as a whole using a variety of techniques; such as deep tissue massage, kneading, draining, compression, cross fibre friction, joint mobilization and fascia release. Danielle also integrates many advanced massage techniques into her work such as muscle energy technique (MET), soft tissue release(STR), positional release, and neuro-muscular technique (NMT).

Danielle works with her clients to come up with a plan suitable for their needs whether it be for needing help through injury recovery, times of change, to get through a pregnancy, to reduce stress and provide relaxation. Massage therapy can help you both emotionally and physically. If you think this is what you need, book an appointment today!
