Balance & Mobility

Release and Expand Through Simple Movement

The benefits of this workshop is learning how to use y/our body fully and to its greatest potential through simple movement; movements you've done all your life, but now need to be re-learned, consciously, in order for your safety. Participants will learn how to safely get up ~ without tumbling over, and sit down ~ with control. Walking consciously, using full-body movements, will improve your gait and overall body structure. We will also learn how to work out the trouble spots, such as bothersome shoulders and hips, with a number of easy range of motion actions.

For persons experiencing Parkinson's Disease, these workshops are a blessing.

As well, I have a two-year certification in the WholeBody Movement modality of massage/bodywork. You are able to lie on my massage table with your clothes on while I gently move your body in way which is designed to interrupt the neurological system in order to get your body to relax and release. These gentle, invitational movements facilitate profound relaxation while releasing deep-seated, restrictive body-mind patterns.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
