My Journey

Massage & Boat Tours

Tired of office politics and unhappy in a prior profession, I became a massage therapist to directly help people feel better.  My own personal and professional journey opened up a world of wellness integrating body, mind and spirit.  In 1999, I moved to Saranac Lake, working at a spa in Lake Placid.  A fellow therapist described my body as "hard as a rock."  Later at Cranial Sacral class, a teaching assistant told me, "you need a lot of work."  Finally, a breakthrough moment came with Zero Balancing.  After receiving my third Zero Balancing session, I felt held tension leave three quarters of my body.  Wow, it was shocking, how much stress and tension my body unconsciously carried around.  After two years of training, I completed the Zero Balancing Certification in 2008. 

In 2015, The National American Massage Therapy Association awarded Sullivan the National Humanitarian of the year through his many efforts working with individuals and various community organizations. 

 Claire Santerre, the Northern New York Chairperson for the New York Chapter, nominated him for the award.


The award was announced at the National Convention in Pittsburgh with the inscriptions – National Humanitarian Award, Dan Sullivan, New York Chapter, In Recognition of your Leadership – Dedication – Commitment in Service to the Community, “Work is love made visible, August 20, 2015 


He is the first massage therapist from New York State to be awarded since inception in 1996.  Only one award is given per year. 

Whether you live near or far, Sullivan looks forward to sharing his skills and knowledge to enhance your well being.  For professional bodywork in the studio, out-calls, Dan is the retreat guide to help you and your family and friends to feel great in Saranac Lake!
