These are some of the benefits my clients have experienced from working with me.


I had almost given up on being able to lose weight and establish healthier eating and exercise patterns until I began to work with Daria as my coach. Daria is clearly different from typical weight loss programs or various diets I’ve tried on my own. I get answers to my questions and up-to-date information on what works best to get healthy. I feel full and have added movement to my day.

With every aspect of her advice, I could begin gently, establish new habits and then move on to another aspect. Daria has worked through my food preferences and sensitivities so I can eat healthy food with no problems. She has suggestions on foods, brands, shopping and other resources.  With Daria, I never feel pushed; I feel supported and encouraged. And I feel better both physically and mentally now that I’m accomplishing my health goals.

Daria’s Ageless Beauty Super Powers Workshop was such a fun and enlightening experience for me and my friends.

It was so much more than a lecture, as she graciously let all the participants ask and answer questions and provided wonderful empathetic responses.

We especially appreciated her personal stories of why and how she conquered being a dessert fiend. One of the exercises she had us do was in fact life-changing for one of my friends.

Daria is well-informed across a broad range of knowledge gleaned from a variety of professional sources.

If you want to get started with little steps toward improving your own health and well-being, book a workshop as soon as you can.

My treatment with Daria was one on the best craniosacral sessions I’ve ever had.  I did not expect it to be so intense and powerful!

It helped me break through some places I’ve been stuck in my work life, so that I had more clarity about what needs to be done next.

Besides, it was so super-relaxing!

I am pretty much in awe of how much the work you’ve done has helped me. I apologize if I sound too incredulous.

It’s difficult to imagine how connected our little bodies are and in general I think we are so used to things happening at a lightning pace, we forget that there is such a thing as slow shift.

Indeed, my Achilles have slowly and steadily improved since my first treatment with you. When I get up in the morning I can walk with very little discomfort and old lady shuffling. I even get down the stairs in a quasi-normal fashion!

The times I have spent on that table are some of the most blissful moments I have ever experienced, thank you soooo much! I am very grateful to you.

Daria Howell is a caring professional who has an amazing gift.  I am 63 years old and I‘ve had massages at least once a week since the age of 20.  I’ve had many massage therapists over the years but did not see great improvement until I started seeing Daria approximately 9 years ago.

I have a history of neck and back problems, shoulder impingement issues, 6 knee surgeries including 2 knee replacements, and fibromyalgia.  I’ve had steroid and Botox injections in the spine as well as acupuncture, chiropractic and physical therapy sessions, but those treatments were not effective.  In the past I’ve needed weekly or semi-weekly massages just to barely keep functioning.

Daria added Craniosacral Therapy to our sessions and I began to see positive changes.  She intuitively knows what areas need work and is very patient, never rushing the body.  She just lets the process work so that the body does not resist the positive changes.  My body is more receptive, responds more easily, and the relaxing effects last longer.  I have experienced both physical and emotional healing: my posture is straighter, my mood has lightened, my diet has improved and I owe Daria for those changes.

As a former psychotherapist it is wonderful to see my body respond and release years of stuffed feelings, pain and trauma.  I have referred many of my friends to her for treatments and they have all given her glowing reports.  I am so grateful to have found her!!!!!!

I was blown away. My session with Daria was so much more than I expected…and what was more impressive was that she was in Portland, OR and I was in Alexandria, VA. About as far across country as you can get!

As I lay in the comfort of my bedroom, Daria honed in on an area that had been injured 56 years ago when I inhaled a peanut. It felt healed to me and looked healed to medical doctors but my tissue was still holding some scar tissue. During the session, my relaxation was so profound that would have been enough but then my facial muscles contracted so tightly they hurt, only to totally relax and let go of all tension.

It wasn’t until the session was concluding that I realized the connection between a current health challenge I was having and this long-forgotten area of trauma. Breathing feels more easy and deeper. My session was nothing short of amazing.

I have had the great fortune to work with Daria first as a massage client, and most recently in her 6-week VIP program.

In every instance, Daria shows up with great awareness, sensitivity and her generous nature allows her healing and coaching to deliver her work with great compassion, and deep wisdom.

It is very clear that Daria is well versed in the human body’s healing processes. She is well informed and shares that knowledge so that it can be absorbed and easily implemented.

My greatest challenge was to be compliant, which is my work, not hers. But even with that, Daria had alternate ideas and suggestions to simplify the process to begin to move forward. This is invaluable for working with successful change.

She delivered top notch lessons to keep me looking at a new perspective to address the things I can control better. For anyone looking for an inspired and creative healing experience, Daria is hands down a winner. It is incredible to consider that this work can be done virtually as well!
