Danielle Dwyer (“Yin” to her community) grew up in San Luis Obispo, California, surrounded by the abundance of the natural world. Inspired by her mother, a practicing licensed massage therapist, Yin came of age with a strong desire to understand more fully the vast, rich world of restorative touch being modeled for her at home.
In her early twenties, Yin’s desire lead her to Philadelphia, PA, where she would eventually begin a diploma program in holistic health care with the American College of Healthcare Sciences.
In the process of receiving her certification, Yin’s curiosity with holistic plant medicine bloomed, and she soon began making it with, and, more to the point, *for* her friends. One such friend was a woman named Debi Phillpotts, who had been practicing and teaching Thai massage for the better part of two decades. Through their friendship, Yin was exposed to the wonderful healing art of thai massage.
In the fall of 2015, Yin took her first two Thai Bodywork courses through The Lotus Palm Institute of Thai Massage and Traditional Bodywork in New York City. During that time, she began actively practicing Thai Bodywork, gathering over two dozen clients.
Two years later Yin moved her practice to Bellingham, WA, where she enrolled in classes at The Naga Center in Northern Oregon, founded by Nephyr Jacobsen.
It is there she continues to study and absorb knowledge about the art of Thai Medicine, and is looking to complete the Thai Massage Specialist program in the summer of 2018.
Yin is currently open to seeing clients on Saturday’s.
