Daniel Marra, CHTP

As a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner, Daniel's work is enhanced by his in-depth background in various disciplines.  A former champion athlete, 20-year professional dancer and award-winning documentary filmmaker, Daniel combines all of this with his unwavering commitment to his own spiritual practices to enrich the profound work he facilitates with his clients.  Having completed An Uncommon Kindness: The Father Damien Story narrated by Robin Williams, this story of a man's unlimited capacity for compassion towards the uplifting of humanity continues to inspire Daniel's commitment to assisting those in need.

Thirty years of in depth practices of meditation, yoga, spiritual disciplines along with a BAS degree in Humanistic Psychology fortify Daniel's ability to create an atmosphere of warmth, humor, compassion and trust to inform his work.  As a practitioner and educator his goal is to bridge the gap between Western medicine and complementary healing therapies.  From 2001-2009 he was the resident healer for the staff of Whole Life Times magazine.  Since 1999 he has been providing Energy Healing for people living with HIV/AIDS through a volunteer program he initiated at Being Alive, an AIDS service organization in Los Angeles.  Daniel currently maintains a private practice in Santa Monica, California, and in addition serves as a continuing care provider for a number of Drug and Alcohol Treatment facilities in Malibu, California.
