Before becoming a chiropractor I studied the clarinet from the age of eight, taught myself the guitar at fifteen, and completed a BA (Hons) degree in Applied Music. I then worked in radio production for a few years until I found my calling and completed a Master of Chiropractic.
To be able to combine my love of music and performance with the ability to improve the quality of function in an artist gives me great satisfaction. With my particular background I have a good understanding of the demands and stresses particular to performing artists and can tailor treatments to take into account whatever your schedule may be throwing at you.
I add to this experience by attending specialized Performing Arts Medicine conferences, traveling as far as the United States to make sure I have the best available knowledge of the field.
So whether you have a stage routine that's particularly demanding on your body, a heavy guitar strapped around your neck giving you back pain, that dodgy tour bus bed is giving you grief, or if you just want a tune up to make sure you're on top form and giving your best performance I will be more than happy to take care of you.
Hope to see you soon!

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
