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

by Karen on Jul 22
I have experienced many massage therapists (over 15) in my lifetime. Danya is the best treatment I have ever had. She listened carefully before our session and then applied her expertise to all of my issues. It is evident that she genuinely cares about her clients and stays focused throughout the session. I highly recommend her as a true professional with excellent skills and knowledge.

It was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Very relaxing and professional, she does a very good job with connecting with her clients and figuring out what is ailing them
by Sarah on Jul 03
My experience was absolutely incredible, Danya is personal and works around suiting your needs and does everything possible to ensure a comfortable, safe, and relaxing atmosphere where you can breathe and just be. She is easy to talk to and doesn’t force conversation if you don’t want to talk during your massage. If possible, I would go more often… she is trustworthy and so caring, I can’t say enough great things about my experience… I’ll be a reoccurring client to say the least!

Danya is excellent! She's very conscientious and takes the time necessary to address any problem areas she finds along with whatever specific requests you have. Her approach is specific to you & not just a pre-determined routine.
