Dahn Schuler, LMT, CLT
With a passion for therapeutic healing, Dahn specializes in providing medical massage treatments rather than spa massages. She holds an Associate degree in Therapeutic Massage from IBMC in Cheyenne, WY, which she obtained in 2014. In 2019, she furthered her expertise by becoming a Certified Lymphedema Therapist through the Norton Schools of Lymphatic Therapy in Tulsa, OK, completing certifications in Manual Lymph Drainage and Complete Decongestion Therapy.
Dahn’s extensive professional training includes various specialties such as Therapeutic Clinical Massage, Headache Relief, Palliative Care/Ill Patient Care, Comfort Touch for Seniors, Prenatal/Infant, Pediatric Massage, and Pain Control. She has developed proficiency in blended techniques like Intricate Muscle Work, Reflexology/Trigger Point therapy, Gua-Sha/Nerve Stroke, and TMJ Intraoral techniques. Driven by her desire to relieve pain and restore range of motion, Dahn chose to work in the chiropractic industry. Her certifications in lymph movement and lymphedema treatment allow her to effectively reduce post-operative swelling and water retention, always with the approval and collaboration of physicians.
Recognizing her calling in this profession, Dahn vividly remembers the moment her fingers seemed to gain their own intuition and sensitivity, just like her professor used to say, becoming “eyes” that could detect and address the underlying issues causing discomfort and pain.
Outside of her work at Ohana Chiropractic, Dahn is a multifaceted individual. Under pen names DC Sargent and Mizz Maddy Mack, she enjoys expressing her creativity as an author. Her website, dcsargent.com, showcases her written works. Additionally, Dahn finds joy in teaching Middle Eastern belly dance and veil dancing, as well as performing regularly across Wyoming and Colorado. Her passion for movement and expression extends beyond the massage therapy realm, allowing her to embrace diverse facets of her personality and bring joy to others through her artistry.
