Meet our Massage Team...
Jesse practices bodywork that incorporates the psycho-somatic aspects of health. She blends clinical, western modalities that target localized pain, primarily myofacial release and deep tissue work, with eastern modalities, intended to stretch and balance the body, such as Thai and Shiatsu massage. Jesse enjoys working with a range of people with various abilities and ailments, from athletic injuries, to repetitive stress injuries from the office, or service industry, as well as individuals with emotional trauma in need of space to relax and release. Whether chronic or acute, from plantar fasciitis, to TMJ pain, Jesse believes that all conditions are reversible, and in her work strives to remind your body what it feels like to be in a more aligned state. Becoming aware of unconscious holding patterns allows for self-regulation and shifting how we move, breath, and live.

“While Danielle was raised in Mandeville, Louisiana; she also relates to the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range as her other home with 7 years living in the valley of Yosemite National Park and 11 years living in South Lake Tahoe, California-Nevada. As a massage therapist, her clinical intuition and application of clinical knowledge is greatly influenced by her life experiences with various post-injury healing processes to restore and maintain muscular strength, functional range of motion, balance, postural alignment, and create ergonomic environmental changes that promote healthier body mechanics. Danielle's therapeutic skills in massage therapy continue to be influenced from her direct experiences of receiving massage therapy from advanced massage therapists and from the guidance of physical therapists and experienced instructors of Pilates, Yoga, Water Aerobics, and Breathing Meditations.
