Danila developed an interest in Massage in 1999 and has been passionate about Yoga since the early 90s. Whilst travelling across Thailand in 2000 she stumbled across a traditional practice that combines both. The use of Yoga and Massage together hugely interested her and so she decided to study further. This led her to gaining qualifications from two of the most prominent schools in Chiang Mai – the ITM and the Old Chiang Mai Medicine Hospital.
Keen to expand her knowledge even more she chose to complement her traditional training with western skills by obtaining her Anatomy, Physiology & Massage Diploma with ITEC in 2002. Over the years she has explored various other forms of Massage and obtained qualifications in Deep Tissue Massage, Pregnancy treatments and more recently became a certified Thai Yoga Massage instructor.
Combining her extensive knowledge of both eastern & western techniques she creates unique treatments which are specifically tailored towards the needs of each individual client. These techniques include stretching, meridian work, deep and rhythmic pressure to promote tension relief, healing, flexibility, muscle alignment as well as stress release and relaxation.
Over the last few years Danila has taken a deep interest in Fascia and the powerful benefits of releasing this connective tissue which envelopes our body and all its components. She has completed her Advanced Myofascial Release Certificate in 2019.
She is currently studying for her ACMT (Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy) L5 Qualification at Jing Advanced Massage Training in Brighton.
Danila is a member of THAI & CHP. She continues to practice yoga and meditation, aiming to her physical and mental wellbeing in addition to improving her concentrations and focus.
As a hairdresser I am on my feet for long hours with my arms raised in a similar position most of my day. Danila addresses my sore muscles and assesses for other tight or sore areas that I may not have brought to her attention during our regular treatments. I always leave her massage couch feeling relieved, relaxed and able to get a good night's sleep! I don't know what I would do without her!

Receiving a treatment from Danila is a deeply restoring and healing experience: whether you are looking for a relaxing massage to soothe tension and stress or have more specific needs, I cannot recommend her highly enough - you will leave feeling balanced, restored and relaxed. As a yoga teacher, I was definitely looking for a therapist that could understand the specific issues and needs that come from an intense dynamic yoga practice; and Danila has a special touch that can go very deep but with so much sensitivity and respect!

Danila is an outstanding massage therapist that puts care, attention and passion into every session. I have worked with her for the last two years and have made great progress with getting more in touch with my body and it's ever increasing movement and recovery.
