Hello! Welcome to Viana-Motion, the website of Viana Daven. Viana has been practicing massage therapy for 40 years. Unlike other massage therapy techniques, Viana has developed a unique approach that focuses on truly re-structuring your body for lasting healing.
A session with Viana is not just relaxing, it is also provides deep and profound healing. Viana works to re-establish the brain-muscle connections that are interrupted throughout our lives, causing chronic tension. Once the connections are restored, you can move forward, rejuvenated and without pain. If you’ve been living with pain or illness, please get in touch with Viana. Her compassionate touch may be the unique experience your body’s been waiting for.

Developmental Movement/repatterning is offered when the dysfunction starts in utero, infancy or after a head injury. "These programs teach you how to re-educate your movement habits and change old patterns. You learn how to reduce pain and allow your body to walk/run/garden/sit/dance/play sports comfortably again. You learn to harmoniously integrate all parts of your body."
"If your body is resisting what you’re asking it to do, it doesn’t change." People are often astounded to experience the truth of this thought.
A Unique Approach
She has no agenda when you arrive for a session. She relies on information from above as to what direction to go in. Her mottos are: "Pain, no gain. If there’s any pain, we stop and change gears. If what I’m doing or teaching is causing pain, you start resisting rather than receiving." "Less is more. Maybe you’ve heard this philosophy but don’t quite know how to put it into practice? Viana can guide you through, so you can experience for yourself what doing less means." Comments like, “holy cow! this is magic!” are not uncommon! “No efforting. The majority of humans push their way through life. When you’re efforting you stop listening. The subtle movements create the lasting changes."
"Through bodywork, individual study or in group classes, Viana teaches you a new way to move with improved alignment, grace, stability and at the same time strengthen your bones and reduces the discomfort accumulated over the years." Photo by Viana Daven
