Diane Stakoe is Nationally Certified by the Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, and Licensed in Massage and Bodywork Therapy with the State of North Carolina. She has studied the Transformational Coaching Method with the Health Coach Institute, and holds certifications in Medical Massage, Acupressure, Neuromuscular/Trigger Point Therapy, Reiki, Hatha Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Chair/Senior Yoga, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, Plus-Size Yoga and Holy Yoga. Diane is also a practicing Stephen Minister. Prior to her current career, Diane worked for over a decade in the field of marketing. Realizing that she wanted more joy and fullfillment in her life, and to be able to share what she had learned to heal her own body from past physical pain and emotional trauma, she embarked on a career change in 2005. A graduate of the Palmer Institute of Massage and Bodywork Therapy, outside of Boston, MA, Diane also received her Bachelor's degree in Communications from the University of Miami, FL. She was introduced to the healing benefits of massage and yoga in 1995, after living with chronic back pain for several years. She felt almost immediate relief from the therapeutics of receiving regular massage and soft tissue manipulation as well as learning to practice a variety of yoga poses, stretches and breathing techniques. It has been the use of these preventative health care practices that has kept her out of pain ever since.  In 2017, Diane launched her Health Coaching practice, in addition to the other services that she offers.  It is her greatest joy to help people learn to feel alive in their bodies again. Coaching and teaching how to release and let go of past events that get stuck in our physical bodies, causing stress and pain. When she is not working or spending time with her husband, two daughters and pets, Diane volunteers on the Southeast Leadership Team with Holy Yoga International Ministries - holyyoga.net.
