Massage is a natural and ancient method of supporting Mind-Body Health. I specialize in a Deep, Flowing, Intuitive and Emotionally Connected, Relaxation style massage and have the ability to address clients' specific concerns. I customize each session for the individual that I serve by drawing from massage styles ranging from deep, slow relaxation techniques to highly effective, therapeutic interventions. My work is informed by many techniques including those developed at the Esalen and Heartwood Institutes of California as well as Trigger Point and Neuromuscular Therapy. I believe it is through a skillful combination of receptivity to my own intuition and perception with a high degree of sensitivity to the true needs of the client that the highest levels of therapeutic massage can be attained.

After obtaining my first 200 hours of massage training at the Heartwood Institute of California back in 1998/9 I shifted gears and went on to become an extensively trained meditation instructor and taught meditation for over 8 years. For the following 5 years I provided Organic Landscaping Services and for 2 years after that I provided Individualized Nutritional Therapy Consultations. Recently I have come full circle back to Massage Therapy and I am thrilled to be here in service to you!

I am a graduate of the Center For Massage & Natural Health, located in Asheville, NC. I am one of only 4 students from my class accepted into the exclusive Graduate Massage Program at our school clinic.

In my free time, in addition to trading massage with highly skilled therapists in my area, I enjoy walking and hiking through the mountains around Asheville and I also spend a great deal of time studying all forms of natural health and healing.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Grace on Mar 16
Daniel is an amazing massage therapist. Listened to me, and really helped me with what I had going on. Very intuitive and highly skilled, and as a massage therapist myself of almost 20 years, I'm very picky! Daniel is AMAZING!

Daniel is great! He pays attention and ensures that he spends time in the areas that are most sore. I highly recommend Daniel!

I've had many massages in my life and Daniel's skill is truly remarkable. I left feeling a level of physical release that required a long moment of rest before being able to drive my car home. His ability to connect & flow with the energy centers in my body was amazing and I am very grateful for the relief I received from his massage.
