With 17 years’ experience as a medical massage therapist and 30 years of study of alternative healing modalities, including healing touch, sound healing, hypnosis, aromatherapy and Native American ceremony, Donna Costa provides integrative massages tailored to her clients’ needs. Among her specialties are deep-tissue, Swedish, hot-stone, lymphatic drainage, trigger-point therapy, acupressure and prenatal massage.
She recently expanded her professional expertise further by earning a certification in hypnosis, taking classes integrating sound healing and aromatherapy, and studying the Upledger Institute’s technique Healing from the Core, which involves bringing in grounding earth energies to attune to the client’s needs.
Through the years, Costa has worked with clients to alleviate a variety of physical and emotional issues, such as sciatica, migraines, stress, insomnia, anxiety, neuropathy, joint pain and range-of-motion issues.
“We all have the innate ability to heal ourselves,” she says. “I’m honored to be able to facilitate and encourage my clients to access their inner knowing in order to reach a state of balance and healing. I believe that in order to help the earth and her creatures, we must first heal ourselves. I’ve studied many methods of healing over the years, with various indigenous elders. I find it very effective to incorporate many of these healing modalities into my massage practice.”
