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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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 tightnesses I typically ignore. This she did without asking me where to she would like me to focus.

  • 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.

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

    Jane Caseyn

  • 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.

  • 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

  • She's the best!
    I have seen Diane every Friday for 90 minutes since 2008.
    That says it all!!

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

  • 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 in 2017

  • My husband and I both have been getting regular massages from Diane for nine 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
    Sarasota, Fl

  • 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

  • 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.

    Byron J Masterson, M. D.
    86 years young. A weekly, 90-minutes client since 2006.

  • 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.

    Dave Sobieski
    Chicago, IL

  • 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.
