“My work lives at the intersection of physical and energy medicine, heavily leaning on the latest research in fascial science that shows how our bodily patterns reflect emotional patterns.”
Growing up with chronic pain, Danielle found that bodywork helped her the most. Since then, she has been fascinated by the power and effectiveness of healing touch. Eventually, she left a promising career working for a utility company to become a chiropractor. “My calling to be of service to women in the healing realm grew stronger over the years,” she says, “and I knew I couldn’t exist in a gray cubicle for the rest of my life, even if the money was really good!”
Early in her education, Danielle noticed a lack of quality care for female health within her field. Her goal became to help women who suffer with the types of issues that are normally dismissed as “just part of being a woman” or that people may be ashamed to talk about. After completing her degree, she dove into the study of the female pelvic bowl, focusing her practice and continuing education on gentle, respectful techniques, such as Holistic Pelvic Care™️, and on the effects of trauma, and our culture, on the body.
She began using pelvic-floor myofascial release as a noninvasive way to help with challenges like stress incontinence, prolapse, preparing for and healing from pregnancy and birth, and scar-tissue healing. Over the years, she incorporated more work beyond the pelvic floor, engaging the entire myofascial system to support these root issues. “My goal with this work is to help women get out of whatever fascial patterns they may be stuck in and then resource and empower them to find this balance as much as they can on their own.” She has also integrated into her practice her deep study of trauma-informed somatic practices, trauma resilience, energy medicine, and other esoteric feminine healing arts.
People often express gratitude for finding this type of work. Often, they have exhausted all other resources and feel a deep sense of relief at discovering a gentle hands-on approach to problems that are deeply troubling and life-interrupting for them. Danielle typically works with clients over a course of 3–12 visits, with the exception being more complex and chronic pain patterns.
From Portland, Oregon, Danielle came to Tucson with friends after a mid-life change. What does she do outside of work? “Basically my whole life is centered around women’s health. I’m obsessed with helping women heal in the gentlest ways possible! Thankfully, my sweet little dog, Betty, is patient with me and gets me out of work mode as often as she can.”
