Danielle Shadford- Massage Therapist

One of my first memories was getting acupuncture for asthma as a very small child,between 3-4 years old. I was brought up on natural therapies and homeopathic
remedies.

My mother was very much a mother of the earth and only gave us the most nutrient whole foods and educated us extensively about natural remedies. So my journey and formal education and occupation in healing and holistic therapies is just an extension of a lifetime of learning.

I have been a Remedial Therapist for 12 years, and because of the constant developments in technologies and what we are finding out about fascia and the lymphatic system and it’s connection to overall health, my enthusiasm for my profession just grows everyday.

I am well experienced in sports massage, pregnancy massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, muscle energy technique, hot stone massage, swedish, relaxation and remedial massage.
I have also undertaken studies for dry needling techniques and cranial sacral therapies.

I have special experience with people who suffer TMJ or migraines due to teeth grinding or
clenching, however most people who suffer this do not even realise they do it. Oftentimes this
requires some at home techniques to keep symptoms at bay. I will help to educate my clients to
help themselves.

I believe a good therapist takes a wholistic approach, looking at the entire person, lifestyle, personality type, occupation, family, genetics, predisposition to stress or dis-ease. I believe health is an ongoing, all encompassing journey, utilising many different modalities. Real Health and Real

Wellness is about correct nutrition, tactile therapies ( massage, chiropractic, osteopathy), hormonal
balance, emotional balance, exercise and healthy sleeping habits and when all these things are in
alignment, you will understand what real wellness feels like. I would like to help you on this journey.
