Zuzana McDaniel is originally from Bratislava, Slovakia but has lived in the Outer Banks of North Carolina for the past 10 years. In Slovakia she studied Regional Development and after graduating from her University she enjoyed traveling for a time. After meeting her husband in the OBX, she took up a permanent residence and started a family. Zuzana continuously seeks balance throughout all aspects of life whether it be her family, nutrition, work, entertainment, or herself.

Zuzana’s interest in massage began in childhood when her father hurt his back as a karate instructor. He introduced her to a Shiatsu style back massage to aid him with his pain and after seeing his relief, she was intrigued. When she was 13, her whole family moved to China for 2 years. Fascinated by the culture, holistic healing and martial arts further deepened her desire to learn. It was not until she came to the United States that she had the opportunity to pursue a massage career.

Zuzana graduated from Advanced Fuller School of Massage Therapy in 2011, which soon after led to her licensure. Her early career began with student massages at the school thus gaining experience through the discounted massage services. After passing the school requirements and the year of mentoring at Fuller’s, Zuzana began work at Aqua Day Spa in Duck, NC and later transitioned to Anew U massage in Elizabeth City.

Through her massage travels, she was introduced to a modality called Isometric Muscle and Body Balancing. Zuzana was fascinated by this technique as the philosophy at its core aligned with her outlook on life. Harmony in all things translates directly to Isometric Balancing. She is able to work and release tight or overactive muscles and strengthen the under active ones to relieve the body of pain. This coupled with her studies of myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and deep tissue, she has helped many people manage pain and find balance.

Zuzana strives to bring a sense of well-being and relaxation to all those involved in her life whether it be family, friends, a client, or herself.

Zuzana was super knowledgeable! She literally took out a textbook and explained some of the muscular issues I was having and how she had tried to help fix them. This in turn helped me understand what was going on with my muscles and alignment. I also appreciated her advice on stretches I can do throughout the day to help my muscles.

Zuzana gives massages like none I’ve had before and I always leave feeling like a new person. As a first-time mother-to-be, I have come to her a few times with pain and discomfort that was keeping me awake at night and she has made it all go away!

Zuzana is a true professional. I feel much better already, and look forward to working with her again.

Professional and skillful massage therapy. I have general aches and pains from getting a bit older, hunching over a desk, not stretching enough, and playing some golf. It isn't possible, after a visit, not to recommend Zuzanna and her practice for relief.
