Danielle is based at Yurt in the City and Portland House in Cardiff.
Danielle first experienced massage in 2004 after she was hit by a car while on her bike. She suffered from whiplash from the impact of the fall. She received a 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 remodeling of scar tissue from the whiplash. Danielle strongly believes her mobility in her neck and shoulders would have been worse off today if she has not received massage after her accident.
Danielle realized massage therapy helped her on so many levels emotionally and physically...she loved the feeling massage gave her...she loved it so much she wanted to learn to do this.
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 summer of 2018.
Danielle specializes in injury recovery. Her massage treatments she caters 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 advance massage techniques into her work such as muscle energy technique, soft tissue release, positional release, and neuro-muscular technique.
Danielle will work 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.
Many people believe that complementary therapies are a luxury, they are not.
If complementary therapies were used, instead of reaching for medical pain relief, more commonly known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs* (see below) then muscular aches and joint pains could be relieved by finding the root source of the problem and not just alleviating the pain.
I am a trained fully qualified therapist with a level three diploma in complementary therapy, further to that I am passionate about healing and have travelled around India and North Africa to research different ancient techniques.
Aromatherapy, Massage and Reflexology have been trusted methods for healing and improving both physical and mental health and well-being, without the use of surgery or medication for over 5000 years. Ancient Egyptian, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Acupuncture & Trigger Point techniques are still used widely and successfully today. Upon consultation and understanding my clients needs I use a combination of the most appropriate methods to achieve amazing results as you can see from client testimonials.
I offer a mobile service as I strongly believe that a client needs to be fully at ease during treatment, this can only be achieved in familiar surroundings. Clients should not travel especially drive or face the elements following treatment as all the hard work could be undone. A mobile service is also an advantage as many of my clients are housebound
and unable to travel.
All treatments are tailored for a bespoke personal experience and rehabilitation, I blend my own massage oils using 100% natural ingredients. Offering all clients advice and aftercare and an opportunity to purchase oils if required.
I also offer Skin Care Products for use at home for a Softer Younger looking complexion, Smoother and BeautifulSkin, again all products are 100% Natural.
