Darya has a unique ability to KNOW your problem areas—without you telling her!  After the analysis and discussion with you, Darya uses her unique skills to soothe those pains and aches and you leave an energized and relaxed person. Darya’s mantra is “I care about you,” and she personifies this daily!


Darya is caring, compassionate, and personally invested in her clients’ healing and well-being.  Darya is extremely knowledgeable in physiology and anatomy and is excellent at communicating with her clients prior to their treatments to focus on problem areas.

But, the most amazing thing about Darya is that she has an uncanny empathetic ability to intuitively “listen” to a person’s body to identify problem areas unlike any body worker that I have ever worked with.

I am very grateful that I found Darya and believe that she is one of the most talented and knowledgeable massage therapists in the Santa Barbara area.


My work with Darya is an outstanding experience. She’s highly intuitive, exceptionally sensitive to you as a person – it’s not just a rote routine with her. She listens and hears you, and really takes the energy to know you and what you need. Darya has an endless database in her of exercises and it’s never a dull or repetitive workout or massage – OMG – her massage is transportive, I can hardly drive after a massage from her. It’s SO refreshing to work with someone who genuinely cares about you and your wellbeing, she’s very unique in that way as well.


Darya has a unique ability to identify and correct problem areas even when I’m unaware of them. Her gentle, effective approach to fitness has helped me increase strength and flexibility and her caring nature makes it enjoyable.


Darya Bronston has been giving me massage for about 10 years.  Over the years she has helped me through major surgeries and illnesses.  She seems to know exactly where my body needs her massage skills to relieve my pain and discomfort.  She is a true healer.  I am very fortunate to have her as my massage therapist.


I can’t thank Darya enough for her generosity. It is as informative as restorative. She is truly gifted. She uses all of her senses to receive and send.

I think the most profound take away for me is that revealing the narrative of how my body got to this place is not as important as what I can do for myself physically TODAY!

After working with Darya I am able to enjoy my weekend hikes with greater ease than I’ve experienced in a long time. This is a seismic shift that Darya helped facilitate!
