Dani Feley offers individualized deep therapeutic massage.  Her technique is guided by multiple modalities, including Deep Tissue, Myofascial, Swedish and Shiatsu. She is also trained in Oncology Massage for those currently or formerly treated for cancer.  Her approach is to work with you and your body through listening to the feedback of the nervous system, to achieve a state of deep relaxation and reduce overall tension throughout the body.

  • Every individual will be recognized by the pronoun and name of their preference. It is important to me that all of my clients feel safe and seen as the individuals that they choose to present to the world.

  • I meet all of my first time clients at the front door and for anyone with vision impairment, I can meet them out front for every appointment. I am also happy to read and fill-in the client intake form.

  • For individuals with hearing impairment, I am able to schedule appointments via email and they are welcome to bring along a sign language interpreter. I have a waiting room that is attached to the studio should we need their assistance during the massage.

Location is Not Wheelchair Accessible — There is a flight of stairs before reaching the massage studio.

There are two nearby bus stops: One at the corner of Herron and Bigelow, a short distance up from my studio.  Another, at the corner of Paulowna and Brereton, further down the hill towards the Strip District.
