Danelia Chacon (RMT)
Registered Massage Therapist
Danelia graduated from fitness and health promotion in 2007 and has over 10 years of experience as a
personal trainer/fitness instructor. She has been working as an RMT for 3 years. Combining both areas of work has given her a better understanding of the body’s biomechanics and structure. She treats both athletes as well as the general public.
She enjoys treating patients with all sorts of issues, using a variety of techniques and modalities in her treatments that will get each individual quick results so they can carry on with their daily activities pain free.
Her top 3 treatment modalities are deep tissue massage, trigger point release and active muscle release techniques to help increase mobility and flexibility.
She is extremely proud to have helped so many people improve their body’s function. It is very rewarding to treat patients with a wide variety of issues ranging from back, shoulder and neck pain to common conditions like fibromyalgia, arthritis, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, depression, stress etc. and seeing them progress to a healthier version of themselves after only a few massage sessions.
Danelia enjoys treating every patient, but her passion lies in patients dealing with chronic pain. This is a concern amongst many people with sedentary jobs who work for hours on end with very few breaks to stretch or get up and walk around the office. Treating this type of clientele is the most rewarding to her for the reason that after one session they can already see a difference in their posture, decrease in their stress level and an overall reduction in muscle tension.
