Danielle Whiteside

Resident Infant Massage Instructor

Meet Danielle and her doll babies Balthazar and Ford! Danielle has been a licensed massage therapist for 11 years residing in both Florida and Pennsylvania and has worked in various settings such as fitness centers, luxury spas, and sports clinics. Danielle discovered her love for infant massage therapy during the pandemic and eagerly sought out The Loving Touch Foundation program to become a Certified Infant Massage Instructor(CIMI) . While doing so, Danielle came to realize that her dedication to encourage healthy development of young minds and bodies had been evident from her early years.  In her youth she longed to be a Child Advocacy Lawyer and often tutored and mentored cousins, classmates and peers. Throughout her massage career she managed to work summer camps for elementary and middle schools as well as voicing children storybooks on her youtube channel and volunteering for St Jude’s hospital.  A childlike spirit herself, when she is not massaging she can be found hula hooping, hosting sound baths, being a voice over artist, baking cookies, and being a mother hen to her younger brother and a support base for her friends. She is passionate about massage, the power of touch, and what that could do for the world – and is very excited to share that with the community at GROW!
