"For me, finding Danni Mares was like hitting the trifecta. She is a gifted LMT, a gifted spiritual healer a yoga instructor and a person who has made the raising of spiritual energy — love — her mission on this planet. The search for truth has taken me many places, as it has Danni. I believe she is the real deal, a healer that is blessed with spiritual gifts and in tune with intelligent infinity.

Over my forty-five year quest, I’ve learned to discern personal energy and can assess most people’s energetic state, whether it’s mostly positive or mostly negative, within a few minutes. I had never met Danni before June of 2020 when I scheduled my first appt for a rotator cuff issue that has limited my activity for over a year. I had been receiving regular, weekly therapy from other therapists to no avail. The pain was persistent. The first two massages by Danni brought the same results as the others: pain came back in a few days and so did the limited mobility.

Danni sat down with me, on her dime, and we did an assessment of my issues. I had tried hot compresses, Biofreeze lotion, CBD and THC patches, massage, electrotherapy, etc. Nothing worked. Danni suggested Reiki. I’m open-minded about Eastern medical arts but had tried Reiki on two previous occasions with no results. However, I agreed to give it another try as nothing else was working. One treatment later and the pain was gone. Over the next three weeks, I had pain, briefly, during one day after shoveling in the yard. It has been two treatments and four weeks since the first. My arm and shoulder are pain-free and nearly completely recovered. Amazing gift, Danni. Thank-you."

"My very first Reiki session was with Danni through the Centre Club in Gurnee,  I wasn’t sure if it would help me as I had been having shoulder neck arm issues for nearly six months treated by massage and more recently chiropractic.  Following my Reiki session, I was in a four-day yoga training and did not experience the symptoms that I was having prior to the treatment.  I am a believer that Reiki is a great tool to be used in maintaining our bodies in addition to massage and chiropractic etc…"

"I recently did my first Reiki session under the guidance of Dannielle Mares. To say it was amazing would be an understatement. Danni is extremely knowledgeable in Reiki and with her guidance, I was able to experience a greater sense of calm and focus. Danni took the time to explain the Reiki process in detail, telling me what I might or might not experience. My experience was relaxing but at the same time energizing. I was pleasantly surprised that I saw the colors that she indicated I might see during the session, which was incredible. Danni also took the time to speak with me after my session about things that could be blocking my ability to focus and increase my mindfulness and ways that I could remove these barriers to allow me to become more centered. If you do not know about Reiki or are hesitant to try it, I cannot encourage you enough to try it under the guidance of Dannielle. She is there for you not only during the session but also afterward whenever you need support or guidance."

"I opened my mind and had a Reiki session with Danni. At first, I was a skeptical person and I waited a couple of weeks to see if the shoulders pain will come back and I am almost pain-free. I am not skeptical anymore! My experience was wonderful and you are a wonderful person with an exceptional gift. 
Thank you."

"A little background why chose to have a Reiki session in the first place, the reason being is that no matter where you encounter people, inside your own home or at the workplace there is residual energy that is left behind on you. When this residual energy is negative it keeps building up in the body's energy and you need to clear it away.

My experience was a positive one with Danni, Danni was very focused into moving and creating balance inside my body's energy, with this balance I felt lighter and brighter with a new spark in my eyes. I feel she has a good understanding with a good handle on this form of Health and Healing called Reiki. I would recommend it, give it a try if nothing else, you will see your eyes will have bright spark."

I was very satisfied with the deep tissue massage I received from Danni. Not only did she know the right amount of pressure, her smooth strokes and gentle approach made the massage one of the best I've had. Not to mention the scenery is absolutely beautiful!
