About Blissful Body Therapies

hired 1 time on Thumbtack

Sensual, spiritual, physical, and holistic, Esalen practice is a peaceful gift of wellness therapy which takes all aspects of the body, mind and self into caring and intimate consideration, holistically and intuitively evaluating your total well being. Through energy guidance, intuition, and spiritual practice, my goal as your guide is to take you on a journey of the mind, spirit, and physical self, creating an experience of unwavering awareness yet complete stillness of mind.

Esalen practitioners are guides of meditation and spirituality, grasping the energies of earth, spirit, and life, and are healers through the powerful senses, which is mainly of touch. Esalen is not a methodical method of therapy and teaches us to form an opposition to planning or methodology. We are trained to feel your energy and perform custom sessions to your individual needs.

The Institute of Esalen refers to the receivers as partners, rather than clients, numbers, or daily slots. The individual and caring attention of an Eslalen practitioner is an extremely beautful quality of the therapy which is truly unique in comparison to the norm of vigorous muscular therapy in traditional Swedish massage.

The intimacy of Esalen and holistic practice encourages a partnership between the practitioner and the receiving individual; this is referred to in the Institute as a "partner" of massage. Through partnership, the guide and receiver develop an understanding, intimate relationship. Over time and communication, the spirits and energies intertwine. Both persons learn to trust the other and feel the flow and motion of massage, as energies are exchanged and transferred through spirit, intuition, and guidance. Both individuals grow together to find and follow the means of a sensual and spiritual awakening. Through knowledge and practice, we learn to communicate through energies, without even speaking a word.

As your guide, I encourage this bond and individual focus, and as when the energy grows, sessions become increasingly beneficial as the relationship solidifies between both persons,
as partners in Esalen massage.

I serve in South Austin.

    Everything you read on the Blissful Body Therapies website is true, and then some. The shared spiritual and physical aspects of a quality Esalen Massage are taken to a new level by Daniella, whose warm, sensitive manner and intuitive touch make it possible for a truly transformational experience. Can't recommend her more highly. If you hate yourself, don't call her.

    I recently received a massage from Daniella. It was amazing. She is attractive and attentive; her hands are soft but her touch can be either soft or firm. It was a perfect massage. I will be coming back for sure. Thanks Daniella. I was relaxed for days.

    I have been getting massages for several years, some are good and some are bad. Daniella’s are amazing. One thing I notice are the hands...they either have good hands or they don't. You can teach technique but you can't teach the energy it takes to give a great massage. Daniella has amazing energy, wonderful hands and superb technique. She is strong and can work tension out of areas you didn't even know were tense. She listens to her clients and will customize the massage accordingly. She is located in a quiet area that is warm and welcoming. Treat yourself to the best massage in town. I highly recommend her.

    I had the pleasure of getting a 60 Min massage from Juliette and it was incredible. She really takes the time to make you feel comfortable and her hands worked out all the soreness from my back and legs. She has a clean and safe location and she really lets you take your time when finished. The next session I schedule with her will be for 90 Min and I can't wait!

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Be patient! If you can not get ahold of me, my life sometimes picks up and runs! I am a full-time student currently in the process of managing three start-up ventures and a local non-profit organization. I am active in the community, always helping people, learning and moving! Every so often I like to just shut my phone off, recouperate and meditate for awhile. When I turn it back on if there are 60 messages, I am SO sorry for not returning everyone's call~! -Just try again! Clients seeking regular therapy are given preference and I am always flattered by the persistence; it works!

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. There is no clock-watching during my sessions; I honestly want you to stay and relax for as long as you need to regenerate, recouperate and revitalize.

I offer third or fourth session discounts of half-rate to my most loyal clientele.. as well as discounts for new reviews or linked in recommendations!

And, the reviews of my sessions do speak more words than I can for myself.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I enjoy meeting people with whom I form solid bonds and friendships, and enjoy people who make me laugh!

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Q: Is draping required?
A: Draping is totally to your preference and is not required.

Q: What do you wear during the sessions?
A: Whatever color I might be feeling on that particular day ;-

Q: Do you use a table?
A: Yes! I am so sorry for your previous experiences!

Q: Do you have cats?
A: I do not have pets in my apartment, no.

Q: What are your rates?
A: Please refer to my website for rates, session descriptions, as well as reviews and recommendations.

Q: I am new to this; what is the difference between a therapeutic and a sensual massage?
A: New clients before scheduling should provide two references of sensual massage practicioners located in Austin.


Q: What type of pressure do you use?
A: The pressure of my sessions range from light touch to deep tissue. I work my sessions intuitively and feel for the energy and tensions in the areas which need it most, and am sure to make sure all tensions are deeply worked and relaxed.

Q: Do you accept credit cards?
A: I accept cash and PayPal.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. I hold a certification in herbalism. My goals in this field include but are not limited to obtaining my certification in holistic wellness and deep interest in continuing my education in holistic nutrition, naturopathic medicine and fitness.
