Meet Your Massage Therapy Experts

Danielle Lambert

CMT • Provider

Massage Director

Danielle is very passionate about Massage Therapy and its life-changing abilities. She has always worked to show people that massage is not a want or luxury, but a need. She has focused her career on educating her clients on the “why” at every opportunity. This allows her to build trust and get excellent results with her clients following her treatment plans. Danielle believes massage therapy heals not only the physical pain we experience but the mental stress that we all have to deal with in everyday life.

Danielle attended the Cayce/Reilly School of Massage in 2013. As a new massage therapist, she started at Massage Envy and gained a year of hands-on experience. She then started at Massage Green in Fairfax City where she helped build the massage program from the ground up. This included creating a care plan for the infamous “tech neck” where she worked with clients to improve their posture, headache/migraines, and stress levels that tend to increase with high-performance jobs.

By 2016 Danielle was back in Virginia Beach and loved working in the relaxing environment of a resort spa for five years while teaching massage at the Advanced Fuller School of Massage. She found Thrive Proactive Health while looking for an environment that treated the whole client and offered holistic and traditional modalities for the most effective healing. She was thrilled to join the Thrive team in 2021. She continues to educate clients and future massage therapists at Fuller in Prenatal massage, Oncology massage, and Aromatherapy.

Danielle has completed over 150 hours of continuing education classes on a variety of modalities including deep tissue, pre and post sports, neuromuscular, myofascial, reflexology, aromatherapy, hot and cold stones, pre and postnatal, infant massage and reflexology, oncology massage, hydrotherapy, a wide variety of healing body treatments, and cupping.

On a personal note…

Danielle married her wonderful husband Kyle in 2015. They have two Border Collies: Penny and Copper. They enjoy living close to family and making memories with their loved ones. They love to go on adventures, but their all-time favorite is a trip to the OBX. Sound or sea, they love any beach the best. She loves any kind of music she can dance to and can be spotted at a stoplight dancing it out in the car. She loves to read and believes that getting lost in a good book is good for your soul. Danielle is a comedy fan and loves to laugh — shows like The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family are her favorite. Her ideal free day would be a sunny day on the beach with family, a good book, and music.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Massage Therapy at Thrive

What are the benefits of massage therapy?

There are many benefits to massage therapy including, but not limited to, reducing stress and increasing relaxation, reducing pain and muscle soreness and tension, improving circulation, energy and alertness, lowering heart rate and blood pressure, and improving immune function. 

What should I expect during my first massage visit?

During your first session, your therapist will consult with you to learn what brings you in for a massage. They will answer any questions you may have and create a custom experience that is catered to your needs. If you ever have any questions or concerns you only need to let your massage therapist know and they will adjust positioning, massage pressure, even reduce the temperature of the table warmer and hot towels to guarantee your comfort and relaxation.

Do I have to be completely undressed for a massage? 

You will only be asked to undress to your comfort level. What you wear on the massage table is completely up to you! Typically, clients remove all clothing, but leave their underwear on. You will be properly draped and covered throughout the entire session. The best thing to wear to a massage is non-restricting clothing that you can be comfortable in after your session.

Will the massage hurt?

There are some modalities, like deep tissue and sports massage, that work the deeper muscle layers, which can be uncomfortable or slightly painful. You always have the option to ask your massage therapist to lighten the pressure for anything outside of your comfort level.

Do you talk during a massage?

Your massage is your time and if you’d like to chat or be silent, that is completely up to you. Most clients talk for part of the session, typically in the beginning and choose to enjoy peaceful relaxation for the rest of the session.

What if I have body acne, skin conditions, or forgot to shave?

Skin conditions are always taken into consideration by your massage therapist just be sure to disclose the information to them so they can plan your massage accordingly. Body hair is never a problem so don’t worry if you forget to shave it will never be a concern in the massage room!

How often should I get a massage?

Once a month is a great maintenance routine for massage. However, if are trying to reduce pain or a specific issue, your massage therapist may recommend you come in more frequently.

How much do you tip for a massage?

Gratuity is never expected, but always appreciated. 20% is typically given to the massage therapist.
