Hello - I'm Dianna HughesLicensed massage therapist and owner of Cuyahoga Massage Therapy located in Berea, Ohio. My aim is to facilitate personalized healing for each individual to relieve chronic pain and reduce stress.
My studies as a massage therapist began in 2015 after I was diagnosed with chronic headaches. At the time of my diagnosis, I had a desk job where I sat all day. This caused a lot of physical pain in my neck, arms, back and my posture suffered. I refused to be reliant on medication so I sought out massage therapy. I knew then that I wanted to help others find relief from chronic headaches and pain, because I was experiencing first-hand just how disabling these conditions were. Massage relieved my pain, helped my posture and improved my over-all well-being.
Since then, I have taken continuing education courses to specialize in the relief of chronic pain and techniques to help reduce stress through mindful breathing practices.
I’m honored to work with my clients to help them be able to move better, breathe easier, and finally get relief from their chronic pain.
Chaing Mai, Thailand
In the last semester of massage school, I chose to focus my training in Thai Massage. Instantly falling in love with the practice, I furthered my training after graduating from massage school.
In 2018, I traveled solo to Chiangmai, Thailand to study Traditional Nuad Boran, a 2,000-year-old energy-based healing practice that integrates aspects of acupressure with assisted stretches.
The course was over 22 days, with 150 hours of hands on training.
Since then, I've taken many other Thai courses to further my knowledge and practice of Thai massage.
