Life got you down? Dealing with physical or emotional problems that just won’t let up? Join Danielle Ratliff Saturdays at 12:30 pm EST for “Serenity Now – Holistic Approaches to Health & Happiness.” Owner of Serenity Now Massage Therapy in Cornelius, Danielle brings listeners holistic approaches for achieving health and happiness. She describes herself as a “rising phoenix” and inspires others to rise from the ashes and live their best life.
Each week, Danielle chats with a different guest, often licensed health professionals who offer holistic approaches to wellness or inspiring humans who have a motivational story. Once a month, she features a local non-profit who is making a difference in our community. With over a decade of experience in health and wellness fields and life experience as a rape and suicide attempt survivor, her ultimate mission is to educate others about mind-body-spirit approaches to health while decreasing the stigma surrounding mental health issues.
