Improving the quality of life for herself, family, and friends has led Donna Dickerson on the path of alternative health therapies for the past 10 years.  Her studies include massage therapy, hypnosis, HypnoBirthing®, child development, Brain Gym, Rhythmic Movement Training, health coaching, behavior management, meditation facilitation, and Reiki (energy work).

Donna is a Virginia State Licensed Massage Therapist.  She received her training in massage therapy at Northern Virginia Community College.  The NOVA program provided a deep understanding of anatomy, while teaching massage techniques, including Swedish and Deep Tissue work.  As a skilled therapist, Donna understands the need to provide additional services for clients with health related challenges. She is certified in Basic Spinal Reflex Therapy (SRT) and is completing studies in Manual Lymphatic System Cleansing. Treatment for edema is available now.  

The journey to understand the body's ability to heal itself began with the study of Usui Tibetan Reiki starting in 2007.  Donna also certified in Rainbow Reiki and Karuna Reiki.  She continued her studies in a 2-year apprenticeship in energy work.  Now as a Reiki Master, Donna works within the energy field of the body providing techniques for stress reduction and relaxation.  When stress is reduced, and the body is relaxed, the ability for healing is greatly increased. 

Donna's training also includes health coaching and meditation facilitation through Georgetown University.  She is certified as a Consulting Hypnotist through the National Guild of Hypnotists.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Julie on Dec 14
Not only do I feel much better after an appointment with Donna for massage or reiki, I know that it helps me recover from my arthritis pain, especially in my hands. Each time I have a session, my body, mind and spirit feels better, and the process of having someone work with me on my sore and inflamed joints is so helpful. Donna is someone who cares about her clients and has such a great touch and healing presence that I cant recommend her enough! She is a true healer and I am so fortunate to have experienced her massages and energy work. She is the best!

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Donna. The ambiance was very nice, clean, and professional. The skill level is crazy good, and resulted in amazing pain relief. The professionalism exhibited by Donna is second to none! Overall, my experience with Donna has been amazing, hands-down the best massage experience I have had in 40 plus years. Thank you so much!
