Dannys journey into bodywork started with his own shoulder injury. Multiple fractures over the years immobilized his shoulder, and initially led into a cycle of cortisone shots, NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), and a general outlook that his life would go on with limited movement.
After far too long of living in pain and compromised mobility, Danny was eventually referred to a sports rehabilitation center where a team of chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists, and academic physiatrists worked on a treatment plan for his condition. It took two years of rehabilitation to regain mobility. After including a strength coach to the team, he was back to being able to do the activities he enjoy doing! His quality of life tremendously improved thanks to a great team of bodyworkers.
Dannys interest in body mechanics and anatomy was cemented from this experience. He studied Kinesiology under National Academy of Sports Medicine and graduated from East West College in Portland OR, as a massage therapist.
Danny takes pride in being a part of the success stories of others going through their own recovery journey. Massage is great for managing stress and general body mindfulness. He strives to improve posture and alignment, which allows the body to work in harmony with gravity as opposed to working against it. When the body moves as intended, life seems to follow suit. Allow him to help you get back to the activities you love doing in life!
