I am a graduate of Just For Your Health College of Massage in San Jose. Since receiving my certification in 2001, I have gained a vast amount of experience in the field of massage.

I began my career at a Day Spa, where I utilized my skills by providing soothing relaxation massages as well as deep tissue techniques. I continued to gain experience by working for three different Chiropractic offices. This gave me the opportunity to develop and practice a clinical style of deep tissue, injury recovery, ART and sports massage.

The combination of relaxation and deep tissue massage skills have equipped me with the ability to identify specific muscle tensions and provide overall healing results that last. I continue to further my education in anatomy, physiology and the fundamentals of massage by continuing to take classes to provide you with the best treatment possible. I have a passion for the anatomy and study of Kinesiology and muscle tissue. I believe if I understand how muscle works, what causes injury, and how it restores and heals, I can help empower the body to naturally heal through increasing blood flow, lengthening muscle tissue and restoring range of motion through stretches and muscle energy techniques.

Prior to pursuing a career in massage, I spent a few years working for the marketing department of a high tech company. There I learned first hand how challenging and demanding corporate life is, especially in the current economic climate where higher workloads and increasing responsibilities can threaten employee productivity and their sense of well-being. So whether you are in corporate America, an amateur athlete, a marathon runner, or just undergo stress in your daily life my work will be a benefit to you. My goal is to help individuals heal from symptoms of stress and reach optimal wellness in all areas of their life.

I have a variety of personal interests such as Rock Climbing, Skiing, World Travel, Camping, Cooking and Service Projects with my Church. I believe a well balanced life is a true blessing.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Eileen on May 10
Donna is THE BEST deep tissue masseuse I have ever met. I keep coming back to her for the past 15+ years. Her skills are far and above everyone else I have ever tried (which is about 20+ others). She not only reads the muscles and knows how hard to work them, but she warms them up appropriately and works "on the knots". Some others just do the mechanics of a deep tissue massage, but she goes beyond that with being in touch with reading your body. Hands down the best ever.

I am a CPA and I have come to Donna at Body Rest Massage Therapy for over ten tax seasons to get a weekly massage to held reduce my stress. Donna has a unique ability to perform a deep tissue massage that is relaxing as well as beneficial. She transports me from numbers and tax laws to one of my happy places. I recommend Donna to everyone.

Donna is wonderful. She checks to make sure the pressure is good and always asks if there are specific areas to work on. She is knowledgable, professional and friendly.

Donna is an amazing therapist and has been in practice for over 10 years, that's saying a lot. You must always book in advanced with her since she books up fast which is a sign of a great therapist. I go for deep tissue work for my back neck and hips and I feel so much better once I leave.
