Meet Daniela Provatakis of Manawa in The Valley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Daniela Provatakis.

Daniela, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started my education in 2010 and have since traveled to many parts of the country to continue my education in order to put together a unique style of work that benefits all clientele.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The road has been anything but smooth. I sacrificed many parts of “a normal life” in order to study and bring to life the work I want to bring to my clients.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Manawa – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
My business is created from the Hawaiian idea that Breathe is Life. My company (Manawa) literally translates to “Life Breathe”. I specialize in healing work that integrates massage techniques with meditation and breathing techniques in order to bring my client to a place where true healing work can begin inside their bodies and their minds. Everything starts with the mind. This is not a new idea, but it is an idea that I have fine-tuned to make my own because of what I had to overcome to bring this work to life.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
My ultimate goal is to have a location of my own where guests can experience my work in a specifically designed setting. I have started small, doing in-home sessions and would eventually love to expand to a location where the experience in its entirety is my work. From first step through the door to last step back home.
