About Diane

I Love What I Do!

I didn't grow up thinking I would become a massage therapist, yet, it turned out to be my gift from God. I am proud to share with you, since 2001, most of my clients have said mine was the best massage they've ever received. I have clients I have seen weekly, monthly, or seasonally for the entire time I've lived in Sarasota. I also see a lot of people who are here on vacation. I will do my best for you to have a wonderful experience as well with a massage customized to meet your specific needs. After all these years...I still love what I do, and you will too!

I was born in Denver, Colorado and lived there until 1990. Prior to graduating Metropolitan State University ~ Denver with a BS in Marketing, I spent a year and a half traveling around the world. After graduation, I spent a year in Japan teaching English Conversation. Upon my return to America, I moved to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, where I started a family. I have two beautiful daughters, Dakota and Emily Rose. They are the light of my life and give me reason to live. Being a stay-at-home mom at the time, I chose to attend classes for massage therapy at DoveStar Holistic Therapies Institute and became licensed in January 2001. Once licensed, I opened my own practice in a yoga studio in Beaufort, SC.

I moved to the heart of downtown Sarasota, Florida in 2005 ~ One of the best decisions of my life. I absolutely love it here. I still love to travel, but everytime I return, I am delighted to call this place my home....it's just so beautiful.

"My Mission is to travel the world with my love, to see my children, friends and family, facilitating workshops and retreats, combining massage, meditation and essential oils for those who wish to Love, Connect & Grow through touch."

  • If I could give 6 stars I would. I was in town for work and was looking for a good massage after a long week. She was a quick walk from the Ritz to downtown on Main Street. Her style of great deep pressure and stretching was perfect. The hot towels at the end are a nice touch! Go see Diane, you won't regret it.

  • I have had numerous 2-hour deep tissue massages with Diane and all were superb. As I am getting older my exercise routine is taking more of a toll on my body, but Diane's skills are keeping me going strong! The finest massage I have ever had.

  • My husband and I both have been getting regular massages from Diane for seven or eight years now. We've had a number of masseuses over the years, and we both feel Diane offers the best experience and outcomes. It's no surprise to us that Diane has been named top masseuse in Sarasota.

    Meredith Rutter

  • One of the best massages I've ever had. Very relaxing, she makes you feel at ease. The essential oils are wonderful, too.

    Crissy Albanese
    NYC, NY

  • My massage was nothing less than amazing and I cannot imagine ever going to see someone else now. I was totally relaxed with you - not easy to get me there. You're about as good as one can get.

    Chicago, IL

  • Diane is very thorough, passionate about her work, and takes the time to make her treatment the best in the business.

    Roy Mimbs
    Weekly Client - Two Hours

  • You never know what you're going to get when you book a new therapist so I didn't have big expectations when I booked with Diane while I was in Sarasota for vacation. She was amazing! And quickly/intuitively figured out just what my body needed! Would see her all the time if I could...

    Jamie Barrutia

  • I saw Diane for the first time on a recent trip to Sarasota. It was a revelation. A healing experience and a restoration. Her energy is amazing. Cannot recommend her more highly. If you want to restore and relax and heal this is the place to go.

    Paul F.
    Sarasota, Fl

  • Best massage EVER! Diane intuitively spent time and adjusted pressure to the areas I was holding and I felt like a completely new person when I left her! Slept like a baby and feel like I can slay dragons today!! Thank you Diane!!! You for sure have found your super power.

    Tracey Prescott

  • Thank you for the peace you so graciously bring to my life through massage….1 and 1/2 hours of healing to my mind, body and spirit. The gift of nurturing hands as a professional massage therapist is very much appreciated from the heart! World travel and many spa experiences have given me the opportunity to compare the bliss of your talent…you are the best!

    Jeanne Babcock
    Weekly client for nine years until she passed on 2017

  • Her expertise coupled with her clients' wellness is amazing. I received so much healing through her.

    Jane Caseyn

  • Your massage was a game changer, Diane. It was as if you knew every corner of my body, and you went in there and fixed them all. I have been experiencing constant lower-spine pain for years now, opposed to having surgery, opposed to opioids, and it has been five hours since my first massage at your studio and I am still pain free. It's been years since that happened. So as of now you are stuck with me! I'll be back in a couple of weeks to get fixed again. Thank you so much.

    Andre M.

  • She's the best! I have seen Diane every Friday for 90 minutes for nearly 12 years now. That says it all!!

    R. J. Steiner
    Chicago, IL & Sarasota, FL

  • A unique massage experience, Diane has extraordinarily sensitive fingers with which she found those places where I unconsciously carry tension. Using light stretching and joint movements, combined with continuous massage of affected muscles, she relieved various pains and tightness's I typically ignore. This she did without asking me where to she would like me to focus.

    James Wright

  • I am an avid squash player and have played football, basketball, participated in field events, and played many years of club tennis. Ms. Lane has kept me showing up three times a week to play squash when many friends have fallen by the wayside due to hip and knee injuries and repairs (one friend has had all four joints replaced). I take no medications, play pain-free, and credit it all to the superb massage therapy I have received over the years from Ms. Lane. I recommend her without reservation.
