Featured Member Interview with Danielle Escalante

When did you start your business and what motivated you to go into business for yourself?


I’ve been active in the holistic community& industry since 2010, however I got the courage to open my own practice in 2016. After working many years for others, I found myself wanting to branch out and truly support my clients through my time, listening, educating, and basically taking their treatment sessions a level higher in care and service. Opening my own practice has allowed me this opportunity.


Tell us a little bit about your business?


I help people, who feel lost and unmotivated, rediscover themselves, feel happier and more centered in their life. I do this by incorporating a variety of tools that I’ve learned over the past decade as a Holistic Health Practitioner, Reiki Master Teacher, Certified Massage Therapist, Deep Healing Mentorship/Coaching, Mindful Art Classes, and Guided Meditation Facilitator. Incorporating a variety of energetic holistic techniques such as Reiki, Tui Na, Chi-Nei-Tsang, Cranial Sacral, Foot Reflexology, Acupressure, Guided visualizations/meditations, Shamanic Energy Work, and more! I delight in weaving a variety of these techniques into each healing session to bring body, mind, emotions, and spirit back into balance and harmony. I am beyond appreciative for this beautiful opportunity to help people breathe new life into and awaken self-love, inspiration, enhanced awareness, and a new-found connection within so they can continue doing what they are passionate about in life…work, family, pets, community, service, and more.


Who is your ideal client/customer?


Someone who is tired of feeling unmotivated, unwell, in pain, low energy…stuck and stagnant in body, mind, spirit, and/or emotions. Someone who is ready to call back their power, who wants to show up for themselves, and learn about themselves. Someone who wants to rediscover who they are. Someone who wants to become unstuck and feel empowered in their life. Those who want to bring back feelings of inspiration, happiness, wellness and motivation….in mind, body, spirit, and emotions.


What is the one thing that sets your company apart from its competitors?


I’ve been told I am a great listener and people leave feeling each session feeling balanced and relaxed, they may also receive clarity and insight about certain aspects in their life. In addition to the treatment session I educate with additional tools and resources that will help them to feel more empowered and understand more about their body, mind, spirit, and emotions. I’ve been there, I’ve felt stuck, and its great to get support via massage or something else, but what happens when I’m back at work or running errands and something unexpectedly arises?? I like to empower my clients with resources so they may reduce feelings of being alone and disempowered.


What is your greatest accomplishment as an entrepreneur so far?


Having the honor to work with clients since the day I opened my practice, to have clients that I’ve been able to grow with and learn from for 3 years is a huge accomplishment for me and I look forward to many more years of supporting them and others as I continue and evolve with this work.


What are your top 3 values in life and business?

  1. I ask myself daily, how can I best serve today?
  2. As I continue to heal myself, I am more effective in serving my clients. If I expect my clients to value themselves and their healing, then I also need to walk this walk….that is why I take great care in my personal healing, each month I receive Reiki, Massage, Shamanic Energy healing, Acupuncture, attend workshops/classes/healing circles, etc.
  3. Compassion, we are all walking wounded…to hold the best loving space I can for myself and others.


What is the most helpful tip or “hack” you’ve ever learned, stumbled across, or been given?


To allow time to meditate and journal. I read something once that said something to the effect of this; we ask and pray for answers every day, but think about this…if my mind is a bowl of rice and I’m praying for clarity or answers, I’m receiving them, but they have nowhere to enter as my mind is full (bowl of rice). BUT if I meditate and journal…then, the bowl of rice gets emptied daily and now I have the space to receive the answers I seek.


What’s your favorite funny story about yourself?


When  I was in 4th grade, my best friend and I were playing down at the creek by our house and found an old skeleton key with a book and flower on the key handle…we were convinced it was the key to a secret garden and spent most of the summer looking for it, unfortunately we never found the secret garden…but I do still have the key….it reminds me to stay curious and see life through the excited eyes of a child.


What is one food/drink you can’t live without?


I love cucumbers, thai food, mangoes, and Pellegrino water!


Are you a morning or evening person?


Morning person


What’s your superpower, or what’s your spirit animal?


My animal Guides that I’ve met so far are, Dragon, Jaguar, and Hummingbird


If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?


To be an articulate and thought-provoking writer. I am animated and love to talk and connect in person, I personally feel I struggle with getting ALL my thoughts down on paper in a clear way when writing. It would be a gift for the words and organization of the words to flow like the breeze.


If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?


Kate Winslet


What is your best advice for women entrepreneurs?


Self-care! Self-love! Always make time to honor yourself….I haven’t always been so disciplined and it’s a world of difference in how I show up for myself and others when Im taking care of my needs vs when I’m not making time. And really I’ve told myself, “Well I don’t have time the business side of things needs to get done…” But honestly by giving myself an hour or more, I’m actually way more effective and have better thoughts/ideas when I allow myself the downtime.
