Declan was great. I had many concerns with my neck and spine condition. He was very helpful in explaining procedures and services and made me feel very comfortable. I look forward to my next session.

About me

Hello daocloud community!

I am the owner of Declan's Balance, LLC. massage therapy clinic in historic Harvey Milk building known as The Hive in Hillcrest, at 6th and University.

We design Swedish, Chinese Tui-na and Thai-for-table modalities. Additionally, I provide Energy Balancing, Health Mate (dry) Sauna (aroma and near-mid-far infrared light therapy), Grounding and vibrational therapies and other spa services. Mobile services also available soon.

I hold a B.A. from UTA (Arlington, TX) and post graduate IT certifications. My other interests and activities include: Ballroom, Country-Western, Latin and Swing dancing (professional instructor), fitness, linguistic studies (I speak multiple languages), biohacking, metaphysics and religious studies, global travel, food and fashion.

I am the 11th of 12 siblings, some of whom have been in the medical and holistic health care industries so I grew up with extensive exposure and connections in these professions. I first experienced and learned massage therapy in 1991, first certified in 2010, now licensed in California. Aside from dancing, massage, body work and teaching are my greatest passions - facilitating the body's natural healing process. To date, it has been most personally rewarding in service to others.

I welcome the opportunity to meet you if you would like to come see my clinic and book an initial treatment, tailored to your unique needs, and discounted with the CODE: DAOCLOUD.

My Philosophy of Care

I grew up with chiropractic care in the family - a sister who is a D.C. Other sisters demonstrated skills and sensitivity in massage therapy. I discovered in my early 20's that I, too, has the touch, which my father, sibs and friends really enjoyed from me as I began to learn the 'craft' (Swedish) in 1991. My father urged me to go professional in 2010, before he died (I worked on him almost daily in private elderly care for him for a year). First certification was that summer. I continued practicing occasionally over the years continuing to develop my skill sets, knowledge and widening my 'client' circles. I returned to private college for new, upgraded certification in 2018, licensed, and founded my clinic in Hillcrest/San Diego. Along these years, I nearly died from cancer in 2012 - 7 years now in recovery in this 'second lease' on life. I met my domestic partner in college, and he also became a licensed CMT and joined me in the clinic. Our bodies are natural masterpieces and will naturally heal itself if we allow and facilitate our bodies through holistic healthcare and wellness to do what it is "programmed" to do. It's my greatest pleasure and personal reward to play an instrumental role in that process through providing the highest quality of professional massage therapy and body work that I can perform according to a client's needs. I also speak Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian and other languages. Having been a ballroom dance instructor, and a professional home organizer, I love to be "Johnny on the spot" ready and willing to help you find and restore your balance through Swedish, Chinese Tui-na, Thai or hybrid modalities, dietary coaching (I subscribe to Bulletproof and Metagenix) and advanced therapeutic tools

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

Beautiful, warmly welcoming "like home" rooms, very comfortable, supportive tables, very nice linens, wonderful relaxing music and aroma. Very professional, detailed oriented, welcoming therapist with active listening skills and extensive knowledge of massage applied to clients' needs. And a meticulous, highly sensitive touch. "Didn't want it to end"

Beyond words, the sheer experience and results!
