Muscles Move Me!!! :)

And they should be moving  you too! :)

The amazing power touch has always been a part of my life. I have been blessed with a family that recognized how healthy touch and affection can be healing waters not only to our physical aches and pains, but also to our emotional heart aches as well.

The amazing power touch has always been a part of my life. I have been blessed with a family that recognized how healthy touch and affection can be healing waters not only to our physical aches and pains, but also to our emotional heart aches as well. 

Through sports injuries, car accidents, life stresses, muscle strains, massage has always been there, helping me get back into the game. It wasn't until 5 years ago, while massaging my RN supervisor, she said, "you're missing your calling," and I said, "I'm not dead yet," and decided to go to the Lancaster School of Massage in 2012.

Since then, I've poured myself into learning and refining the art of massage. Having toured and assisted with Sport therapists who have experience working with Olympic level athletes, trained with Neuromuscular, Mayfascial, and Structural Integration therapists, I offer many different modalities to help you find the healing path for your body and soul as well.

In my spare time I try to keep active Swing Dancing, Hiking, Gardening, Mission Trips around the world and as a Christ-follower, am a firm believer in the power of Prayer and Positive thinking/speaking.

Chair Massage

I've served chair massages in great local business areas such as; Park City Mall, Barnstomers Games, Occupational Development Center, Women's Expo's and Business Expo's at the Spooky Nook, The Good Samaritan Hospital, and many other health fairs or bridal showers, etc.

Deep Tissue

Much of my experience has been dealing with Deep Tissue injuries. Having worked with Chiropractors, many of my clients have been in car accidents, Pregnant, or had strong muscular issues that needed deep tissue to unfurl the muscular knots/connective tissue that was causing them pain. Necks and Low backs have been a joy and my specialty to take care of :)

Myofascial Release

Many of my clients have enjoyed the MFR experience of gentle stretching/releasing of the connective tissue, it is something that I keep active on my tool belt.

Neuromuscular

My favorite mode of massage is NMT (Neuromuscular Therapy). Hitting a trigger point or a knot or a muscle with great connective tissue adhesions and holding until the muscle/knot releases is one of my favorite things in the world.

Rolfing

I've traded with some pretty superior rolfers that have fine tuned their trade to become a heavenly experience. I picked their brain and learned alot from them and use their techniques in my repertoire. It helps rebuild the integral structure of muscle and ease pain.

Reflexology

I've had many occasions to use reflexology to aide in a persons health and well being. One of my clients was a leader on a mission trip, was pregnant and became constipated. I worked on her feet and shortly after she went.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage has become one of my all time favorite massages to receive. The heat from the stones undo so much tension from the muscles, it's so lovely!

Sports Massage

All of my Continuing Education is in Sports Massage. I feel honored to have followed around a man who has worked at so many historical events; including the Olympics, weight lifting competitions, etc. He seems to always know how to fix whatever is wrong. I've learned so much simply from being around him. We also worked at a the Harrisburg Marathon; before and after.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy massages are fun! So many beautiful young lives carried in the wombs of these courageous moms, and such an honor to bring relief, comfort and encouragement to them; physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as they are on their journey.

Medical

The most common form of massage practice that I've had-working at a chiropractors. :)

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Danya goes out of her way to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. The massage was exactly what the doctor ordered and amazing as always!
by Laura on Mar 12
I loved my massage with Danya! I became completely relaxed and also got relief from some shoulder and neck pain that I have been experiencing. She takes her time, was careful and thorough asking questions about the pressure along the way. It's a blessing to reconnect with her! Thanks Danya.

Danya is an amazing individual who uses her gifts to glorify God. Not only was the service incredible. But the presence of God was prevalent.
by Ashley on Feb 28
Especially for therapeutic massage, when I'm in pain or upset, there is no one I trust more than Danya. She is sensitive and intentional in her approach to address the root cause of injury.
by Dan on Feb 27
Danya is excellent with great care and attention to detail. Will be coming back again for my back pain!!
by Shawn on Feb 17
It was a good massage. Danya seems to know what she's doing. Either that or she is doing a really good job of faking it. In either case, I'll be back. If friends ask me for the name of a good masseuse, Danya is who I give them.
by Teresa on Jan 27
My shoulders and neck were a mess. I waited too long before getting a massage. She listened to my issues and took exceptional care of me. I highly recommend.
by Tina on Jan 22
Danya was very sensitive when caring for my poor back which was in knots! Upon request, she shared her observations and valuable suggestions for self care and stretches that would help me deal with my particular challenges and life stressors. She went above and beyond my expectations. I felt very safe and cared for.
