Danielle Barnett - Sports Massage & Remedial Therapist
Manuel Guerra Skin Care & Juice Bar
Unit 3, The Artworks
Welcome. My name is Danielle. I provide high quality and effective soft tissue therapy and injury rehabilitation as well as offering a regular deep tissue, full-body conditioning and a pregnancy and post-natal massage service.
Whether you are troubled by neck tension or suffering lower back pain, recovering from a recent or an old injury, wishing to improve flexibility, feeling the discomforts of pregnancy or simply wanting to unwind and de-stress, each of my sessions is developed specifically in line with your treatment goals.
During sessions, if appropriate, I can explain what I find, helping you to more effectively understand and manage your own condition. I place great importance on evaluation through touch to accurately identify and manage lines of stress.
If you are suffering with musculoskeletal pain, or have a specific remedial issue, I work to identify and correct any underlying postural causes and determine what other factors may be contributing to your complaint.
Alternatively, if you are looking for something more general, I offer regular deep tissue massage: A full body conditioning for those who wish to maintain good overall well-being, keep on top of minor aches and pains and generally unwind and relax. Soft tissue therapy is not only suitable for injury rehab and prevention it is also key to keeping your muscles soft, supple and strong. Tensions within tissues are evident to the touch and for that reason they can be accurately identified and managed. Evaluation through touch helps guide my work. Your entire body is worked on, freeing up areas of restriction and tension, keeping you flexible, and generally improving your overall physical condition. This helps to encourage good posture, allows you to move more easily and keeps in check minor aches and pains before they get the chance to develop into full blown injuries. On a regular basis these sessions are an excellent way to keep you feeling at your best.
Working out of various locations, I cover the Elephant and Castle, Borough, London Bridge, Southwark and Blackfriars areas.
I offer a free telephone consultation to discuss how these sessions can best help you. You can telephone me on 07533 212342, or alternatively, email me at email@example.com.

Marta Modesto, Admin assistant
"Danielle was amazing, she found all of my trouble spots, took some pain out of my body and helped me with my posture. I’ve already recommended her to my co-workers… I loved the experience!"
Anna Garber, IT trainer
"I used to see Danielle when she practiced solely as a deep tissue masseuse but having had a recent hip replacement which left me with one leg slightly longer than the other and causing me a lot of pain, I decided to make another visit to see her again, as she was the only person who had ever made any real difference to my aching back.
At this point I was using a crutch and also waiting for my 2nd hip to be replaced. She explained that she works differently now and I had to do this whole consultation and assessment thingy… All I wanted was a back massage!!! Anyway, I agreed.... She said ‘For now, I am NOT going to touch your back’. I thought, doesn’t anyone ever listen to me!!! However to my surprise when she went in through my core muscles I felt this wonderful stretch in my back and incredible tension release. Literally, the next day I stopped using my crutch and I have been seeing her ever since!"
Daniel Hooker, Commonwealth Games, ambient 100M sprinter
"In my ultimately successful attempt to gain selection for the England team at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in the T37 100m, few people have been as significant as my masseur Danielle Barnett. I suffer from hemiplegia as a result of cerebral palsy, which leaves me with very tight muscles. Danielle's expertise has been vital in loosening those muscles to provide me with the range of movement necessary for high level sprinting. She has also engaged in longer-term work to lengthen my hip flexors in order to take pressure off my lower back, which had suffered from niggling pains for much of the previous year, as well as working with my physio to ensure swift recovery from a knee injury sustained only ten weeks before the Games themselves. Writing this three weeks before my competition, I feel as loose and fast as I ever had, largely thanks to having doubled the number of massages I have with Danielle!"
"… Thanks Danielle, thank you as well for your role in getting me there, I did a decent job all told."
Yoginee Patel - Career Coach
"I was training for the New York City Marathon when I started getting stabbing pains in my legs. In search of relief, I found Danielle. She was a life saver. By the time I got to her, I was struggling to finish my runs due to the pain. Well, Danielle really got into the legs and I can honestly say that I would not have been able to continue my training or run the marathon was it not for the work that she was doing.
The runs I did after a massage were the best I had. My legs felt lighter and looser which enabled me to go further. I highly recommend Danielle and she will always be on my speed dial whenever I'm training for these events."
