Dana Kerekes

Massage Therapist and Owner: "Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to try something new".

I became a body worker in search of a career that establishes a connection with people. Not to mention, my parents said I had to do something after high school. However, I'm one of the lucky people that loves there job and l look forward to work everyday. I am most passionate about solving my clients muscular irregularities.

I'm qualified in many modalities however my favorites are medical massage, deep tissue and manual lymphatic drainage for scar tissue and post plastic surgery patients.

It feels like Dana tailors the massage to my body's needs. She applies the right amount of pressure and my body feels relief at the end, never pain or soreness. Dana also doesn't make me feel like I should talk during my massage which I greatly appreciate.

I had a fall two weeks before I came in with an injury to my lower hip. I was visiting Killeen but experiencing pain. I found Ironclad online and read their reviews. Dana began by asking questions and listening to me. Dana was terrific at working to identify the areas that needed attention and then went to work on them. As she worked, she explained to me what she was doing. She is a gifted healer! I am so grateful as I left there with more ability to move easily and without discomfort for the first time in two weeks. Dana made suggestions as to a few things I might do to ease the situation and other services I might want to consider if not fully healed soon. Thank you, Dana!

Dana seems to be keen on knowing exactly what her costumer needs the most, instead of doing the same kind of massage for every one. She also stays up to date on new massage ideas/techniques.

Dana is great. She makes sure to ask at the beginning of each session for spots we wish to focus on. As a runner, I can tell her that my plantar's fasciitis or my Achilles tendinitis is acting up, and she will provide appropriate techniques to relieve it.

Dana is extremely talented in her profession. She listened to my woes but more importantly was able to find the troubled spots on my upper body. After my massage I really did feel so much better and extremely grateful to Dana for her abilities. I even scheduled another massage and brought a gift voucher. I definitely recommend Dana for sure.

Dana is amazing. I used to see her when she was at Ecoblue and when she told me she was opening her own business there was no doubt I was going to where she was located. I used to go to another salon for massages but I was never fully satisfied. I have a lower back injury and when I asked others to focus on my lower back, they would only go to the belt line. It would not help with the stiffness of my back. Dana goes a little lower than the belt line and it makes a HUGE difference.
