"In order to help others, we must help ourselves"

As the owner of DAAC, I provide you and your family the opportunity to endorse your holistic health through massage therapy. Because of my strong educational background with pediatrics and my massage background, I tend to focus more on child-health. I also have a personal background with working with children with disabilities, which enable me to understand the vast techniques needed for working with people with disabilities and their health needs.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Counseling services

by Anonymous on Apr 30
Sandra is great - very attentive and understanding.
by Steve on Apr 11
It was a wonderful experience. You hit the areas we discussed with good results and new areas of treatment were identified and communicated to my chiropractor. I was comfortable enough to almost fall asleep. I'm also so happy that I have extended my next appointment to 90 minutes. The ambiance is only a temporary rating since the treatment room is just being setup.

Massages by Sandra are very relaxing and meditative. I know that in this session it was relaxing enough to put me close to sleep.

Sandra is amazing! She has increased the flexibility and reduced the pain in my neck by tenfold due to a car accident and degenerative changes. She is sweet and very smart regarding message techniques!
