Diane Stakoe is Certified Holistic Health Coach, is Nationally Certified by the Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, Licensed in Massage and Bodywork Therapy with the State of North Carolina, and is a Certified Yoga Therapist and Instructor. 


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 certified 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 fulfillment in her life, and to be able to share what she had learned to heal her own body from past physical conditions and emotional traumas, 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 and other natural, preventative health care practices that has helped her overcome other health issues and has kept her healthy and out of pain ever since.  

In 2017, in addition to the other services that she offers, Diane launched her Health Coaching practice, in which she helps individuals and groups to find balance, health and joy in their lives.

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.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork, Yoga, or Coaching services

by Roz on Jun 26
Aside from a beautiful office and most welcoming greeting, Diane always inquires if there are any issues, discomfort or soreness that you would like her to focus on. Her care, professionalism and calming personality are top notch. I always feel better after visiting her, and look forward to my next visit.

Diane is amazing. She can work out any issues and does so with a caring spirit!

This was my second therapy session with Diane. A day later and I can feel more results and a greater relief from the pain and soreness caused by the overwhelming stress in my life right now. I explained to Diane about my stress and some very painful muscle issues due to my work. Together we worked out a 10 session therapy program. I am very pleased to say that I am beginning to feel the results from my first two sessions. Most notably is a problem I've had with my foot for about 30 years is clearing up. A problem every doctor I've seen said they could cure and never did. I can not be more pleased that I decided to contact Diane for her help.
