About Us

A graduate of Alexandar School of Natural Therapeutics, I have been practicing massage since 2016. I am a member of the Elite Massage Proffesionals Sports Massage Team and certified in multiple modalities including Trigger Point and Structural Integration therapies.

Not long after my mother died of cancer, I became interested in learning about integrated approaches to healing, realizing that medicine was much more than I had originally been exposed to. After nearly 12 years in the medical industry, I decided it was time to get "hands-on" with massage therapy and nutritional studies.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • It was my first massage, and it was very relaxing and pleasant. I went to see Danica for help with heel and ankle pain. She was a good listener and very professional. Amazing results in such a short amount of time. I felt taller/lighter when walking and running, had no ankle pain, and had more confidence to go harder in my sport.

    Danica, is an incredible body worker. She is intuitive, kind, and has an incredible knowledge of our biology, physiology and body structure.

  • Danica is v ery professional, listens to my needs, and effectively addresses them. I won’t go to anyone else!

    Expert work, with calm, focused sequencing. Wonderful listening.

  • First massage in many years. Therapist empathetic and knowledgeable

    Made me aware of movements before and as she did them so was prepared for the action. Very soothing room and music. Found the areas that needed work easily and focused on them. Very good experience.

  • thought experience was good, shoulder feels much better today. Appreciated the follow up email with future appointments and the ability to schedule appointments months in advance. A little bit distracting with other classes going on and open ceiling, kinda noisy. Highly skilled practitioner!

    You did a great job - thank you Danica.

  • I would give 10 stars if I could :-) ! Thank you for knowing what my body needs and taking the time to see it through!

    Love everything about Danica including her bird soothing music!

Exactly what my aging & overworked body needed! Danica is intuitive and so knowledgeable coupled with clear communication. She’s definitely more than a massage therapist with her level of skill. She’s a healer. I’ve never experienced anything like it. It definitely was not your run-of-the-mill massage. It was therapeutic and I look forward to my next session.

Danica is a true professional who knows her skills well. She takes the time to carefully assess your needs individually and not just do an overall "feel good" massage. Knowing what each person's needs are is very important. She found areas in my legs that were causing aches and tension and resolved the problems. The next day, I felt better and walked more relaxed than I had in a long time. She's magic!
