Donna D. Diakite, Practitioner, specializing in Reflexology and Aromatherapy, brings 14 years of Massage Therapy experience to Wellness on Park. Trained initially in the art of Massage Therapy at Massage Arts Center of Philadelphia (2003-04), Donna also studied Reflexology and Aromatherapy. What is Reflexology? Reflexology is a pressure therapy which targets specific trigger points on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and outer ears to bring relief from inflammation, migraines, stress and to uplift the spirit and improve sleep.
Prior to attending MACP, Donna completed a 12 week Introduction to Massage Therapy course (1997) at the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District Community Classes. Study of the musculoskeletal system and Anatomy and Physiology were also part of the curriculum along with actual hands-on practical application. Donna completed her undergrad degrees from Peirce College located in Philadelphia with an Associates of Science in Business Management (2010) and Bachelors of Science in Entrepreneurship and Small Business (2013).
As a naturopath bodyworker, Donna started a mobile massage therapy business in 2008 providing clients with private, in-home massage therapy and reflexology until moving to Delaware in 2014. As her business grew, Donna took her talents to events such as community health fairs and the Philadelphia Broad Street Run, and she provided chair massage at the Lansdowne Farmers Market. Additionally, she did corporate chair massage for Verizon Employee Appreciation Day and Swarthmore College. Donna is a graduate of Swarthmore High School (1978). She recently moved back to Swarthmore in 2017 to pursue her dream of working as a naturopath practitioner in her hometown.
