What people are saying about Danisha:
“Poor digestion and an unhappy uterus brought me to see Danisha for care. In only 3 sessions I saw my digestion improve and gained awareness of where my uterus sits in my body and how to care for it. An unexpected benefit of this work has been the relief of chronic back pain from past car accidents. My back has literally not felt this good in years!
Danisha is completely competent, highly knowledgeable and does a great job of explaining uterine function and care to her clients. She is grounded, caring and holds a beautiful space for healing. I whole-heartedly recommend her.”
“I first worked with Danisha when I was trying to get pregnant and my cycle would end 7 days after ovulation which was not enough time for a fertilized egg to implant. I worked with her regularly for three months. My cycles lengthened out over that time (and I also felt wonderful). I got pregnant the first month trying after my treatment with Danisha!”
“I came back to working with Danisha when I began the transition to menopause. Her work is deep, intuitive and powerful. It has been tremendously helpful in bringing my system back into balance. My energy is increased, flows more smoothly, and remains steady throughout the day. And I feel more integrated and strong. And most importantly, more like myself! I am deeply grateful for the work Danisha has done with me.”
