Danny Mullens – Advanced Clinical, Deep Tissue and Holistic Massage Therapist
Danny brings a wealth of experience and skills to massage at Therap-ease. As a competitive table tennis player and fencing champion in his youth, Danny has experience of the demands that training can put on the mind and body. Moving on to Yoga and Physical Theatre maintained a strong reliance on body & mind, and this led him to massage and the benefits it can bring.
Beginning with holistic massage Danny then trained with Jing in Advanced Clinical Massage. This gave him a broad toolkit of techniques and the confidence to deal with most of the problems a masseur is likely to see. Working with a holistic approach Danny likes to see the whole person rather than just a set of symptoms. Each treatment is particular to the person receiving it and may involve a fusion of bodywork styles: Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release, Trigger-point Therapy, Amma, Active & Passive Remedial Stretching and Body-rocking.
Danny has experience of working with a wide range of issues including: Migraines and headaches, Chronic pain, Sciatica (and other nerve entrapments), Repetitive Strains, Injury Recovery, Mobility Issues, Fibromyalgia, M.E., S.I. Joint Dysfunction, Emotional issues (anxiety, depression, insomnia) and Long Covid.
Danny has been lucky to work with inspiring teachers and practitioners and continues to look for opportunities to further his knowledge and understanding. In his spare time Danny now uses dance to help him to relax and unwind at the end of the day.

Therapists I Recommend
Ray Head – Sports Therapist – I’ve known Ray since starting as a therapist and if I have an issue that I want to be sure is going to get fixed, he is the therapist that I go to. He mostly uses Sports and Remedial Massage techniques but he has a bit more in his bag if it’s required.
Mio Kuroiwa – Sports & Remedial Massage – Mio has a similar skill set to me, but her own way of applying these and is more charming!
Linzi Muir – Sports & Remedial Massage – again Linzi has a similar skill set to me, and always helped me when I used to be able to see her on a Friday afternoon, but I’m sure she will have expanded on this since I last saw here.
Benedetta Gaetani d’Aragona – Sports & Remedial Massage – Benedetta is a very experienced therapist and has a wide range of skills. Handy location in Morningside too!
Nicholas Evans – Physiotherapist – I worked with Nicholas early on in my career and he was a great physio then. He can do a bit of everything, but has specialised in head an neck issues too.
Jacqui Archer – Physiotherapist – I know Jacqui through working at Therap-ease and as we have worked together both in treatment swaps and client referral’s I’ve come to know how she work and I am always impressed with her knowledge, skill and passion.
