Basic Elements Therapeutic Massage

My  —  



Our mission is to get people moving pain free and increase mobility without the use of expensive pharmaceuticals or surgery.  Although sometimes it is necessary, most of the time we can alleviate symptoms of chronic pain, headaches, nerve compression, back pain and much more.  

We focus on results in this office.  I want to be able to communicate with each one of my clients and get to know what matters to you.  Be prepared to walk around and maybe some cool dance moves to check our work.  We want to make sure what we are doing is working! 

Our unique approach for treatment is a blend of hands on bodywork, eye and body movements.  But most importantly the hard work you do at home, will be what gives you the lasting results! Many people think to go to a professional to "fix" their problem or injury. This is the furthest thing from the truth.  YOU have the power to change how your body feels. My job is to give you a window of opportunity to continue being your best self.

Ms. Dani Davis, a therapeutic massage genius. She is the owner of Basic Elements Therapeutic Massage and is a miracle worker.

She is very knowledgeable about her profession. Any physicians that currently have clients with pain issues, acute and chronic, should seek her counsel and services.  

For three years I have suffered from severe neck pain. I tried common avenues, physical therapy, medication, a pain clinic, and shots could not cure. 

I visited Ms. Davis for three weeks, one appointment a week, with her immense knowledge of muscles, the workings of the human body, banished my pain forever!

 I will be forever grateful and urge everyone who is suffers from acute or chronic pain to seek her healing powers.

"T-Birds Success Story"


My First visit to Basic Elements Therapeutic Massage Therapy, was in February 2019.

could barely sit still. I was explaining my situation. I had never had a

sciatica flares before and I did not know how to fix it.

The pain was so severe that I was not able to fill the out the necessary paperwork she needed.  I am extremely thankful that Ms. Davis understood the extreme pain I was suffering at the time.

My appointment was for an hour.  I was very skeptical about the massage therapy approach, but it was either her or the emergency room. I walked out of her office, nearly in tears, happy and sciatica PAIN FREE!


                     ONE SESSION!!!!!


   I am 60 yrs. old. I suffer from other injures that I have suffered over my lifetime.  Spending most of my life in the food business most of my life and torturing my feet over the years.

 I had fallen in my younger days, I suffered injuries that required surgery to repair fractures and damages.  (Cheek bone and neck in 1981)

My active lifestyle over the years required that I have a total knee replacement in 2010.   I have been having pain for the last 15 years

. Arthritis was taking over all my injuries.

  I have heard, "if you don't use it, you'll lose it." Soooo, since

February, I have had exactly 10 sessions.


   Well, to make a LONG story short, I just recently finished power

washing my deck with no pain (that was serious enough for me to

stop).  My husband and I cut down a 40-foot tree and piled branches and logs



 I am feeling better than I have in years!  I still have some minor issues but nothing like before.


    She is an absolute doll, very professional and extremely serious

 about her work!


This is not your ordinary  therapeutic massage; you don’t just lay there.  There is work that I am required to do as well.  This allows the work that she has done in our session will be kept in the muscle memory.


    I have become very fond of her and we chat about personal life stories. I have met her mom; I know about her animals and fiancé!

   So, if you are in the market of trying to feel like a human again, and that life still has meaning, then she's your ticket to a healthy tomorrow!! I can't thank her enough for fixing me up! 

                     Thanks Ms Davis,

COVId-19 safety measures


Please arrive wearing a mask. If you need a new one, there are some available. 

Temperature will be checked and a waiver must signed before our session begins.

Each room is well sanitized between every client.

An air purifier is on all day in the treatment room.
Your health has always been our priority, so we're doing all we can to protect it.
Thank you!

What we do if a client or practitioner becomes sick:

• The massage therapy facility complies with contact tracing efforts, working with the Department of Health and other entities as needed.

• The massage practitioner who worked with the client will be tested for the virus 5 days after exposure. Then are required to go into self-quarantine for 14 days.

• All other clients of that massage practitioner who have had close contact with them in the meantime must be notified that they may have been exposed. (Public health statements recommend that they also go into self-quarantine for 14 days after their exposure, but that is not within the purview of the massage therapy facility.)
