Lotus Transformations

(practitioner Danielle Watson)

I grew up in southern Idaho and attended college in Dillon, Montana. I graduated from the University of Montana-Western with a Bachelor of Arts in Business and Communications in 2002. In 2003 I moved to the Phoenix area in search of the perfect massage school to continue on the path to my dreams! I developed my passion for positive, healthy touch at The Southwest Institute Of Healing Arts (SWIHA) located in Tempe, Arizona. While there I completed the 1000 hour Mastery Massage Program with a focus on Reflexology and Special Touch (prenatal, geriatric, infant…). 

I have been a practicing Massage Therapist for 22 years. It has been a wonderful learning experience and has given me the extraordinary opportunity to touch many lives of all ages. I began my career in a small Day Spa and then continued to develop my skills while working with a chiropractor. While living in Arizona I worked from my in-home massage business for 4 wonderful years. In 2013, my daughter and I made the Palouse our new home and I had the great pleasure of joining Palouse Acupuncture and the Moscow Chiropractic Clinic.

I have recently completed my Bowenwork Training and look forward to applying this new technique to those who are interested. I look forward to assisting you on your path to health and wellness, offering my skills and passion of positive touch to you and your family.

Thomas Heikes, LAc

In 2020 Thomas graduated Magna Cum Laude from a full-time three year Traditional Chinese Medicine program at Pacific Rim College in Victoria, BC, Canada. Thomas has deeply studied Western herbal medicine for many years and growing, being in relationship with, and sharing plant medicine is his true passion. I spent a year apprenticing on a medicinal herb farm, followed by many years of self exploration, took many courses at Pacific Rim College, engaged in another year long apprenticeship, and most notably completed a program with the School of Evolutionary Herbalism, one of the most comprehensive online training available in Western herbalism. 

I am consumed by a deep curiosity and wonder of this amazing world. I grew up in Colorado and gained my BA in Architecture, however I struggled to find purpose and fulfillment on that path. My life calling truly began when apprenticing on a medicinal herb farm and homestead, the world finally made sense. I realized I desire to live simply, in conscious symbiotic relationship with the earth and nature. I spent many years accruing sustainable living skills guided by the vision of creating an educational farm and homestead, a place to help reconnect people with nature.
