JADE DANIELS, NCMT, BCMT, Director
Jade established her massage clientele in late 1982. BodySense Day Spa and Clinic was created as a center for clients to relax, heal and rejuvenate through massage therapy and natural beauty products. As demand grew in 1997, Jade started the Daniels Institute of Massage so others could learn and enjoy all the benefits of massage and holistic techniques. Jade has a 30 year background in the healing arts. A Master of T’ai Ji and Yoga, fitness, seminar and workshop leader, therapist and educator, Jade has touched the lives of thousands of people. Jade graduated massage school in 1987 and worked with Roanoke City in 1994 to create the current massage laws. Jade has had the honor and pleasure of working with very special healers and teachers and enjoys passing the knowledge on to others.
