Somaliah Williams is a certified massage therapist and doula, offering focused therapy in prenatal care and reproductive health. Somaliah has been as a Birth Worker as well as a Reproductive Justice Worker since 2013 and provides childbirth education, prenatal support, meditation, prenatal nutrition, lactation support and pain management to the incarcerated pregnant women at Rikers Island Rose M. Singer’s Women’s Jail. Somaliah also teaches an introductory massage class at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Manhattan, laying the foundation for future massage therapists. 

Somaliah’s love for bodywork is coupled with treating the pregnant individual and their families in all stages of pregnancy including conception support, pre and postnatal as well as infant massage.

With additional certifications and trainings from Thailand, Somaliah’s sessions incorporate many Eastern approaches. For example, Somaliah is fully trained in Thai Hara Massage, a technique that targets an array of issues associated with digestion, urinary, reproductive health, and deep emotional blockages. Other trainings include Thai herbal compress and vaginal steam treatments.

Working as a doula coupled with years of administering medical massage has given Somaliah a deep connection with how people perceive pain and integrate healing into their bodies. For Somaliah, it “can’t be said enough, healing is truly a holistic experience that requires the mind and body to be attuned.” She feels that the biggest aspect of healing begins with our need to be affirmed, our need to be seen and to be heard. Somaliah gives full-spectrum holistic care to her clients with technique and attunement, which are at the basis of her practice.

When she’s not treating or supporting babies being born, Somaliah loves dancing and studies the connection of somatic healing through movement.

She has a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, is a Licensed Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist, and is nationally certified as a Diplomat of Chinese Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

Daryl’s goal is to facilitate healing based on individualized treatment for physical conditions along with emotional stressors. Treatments often include acupuncture, massage therapy and herbal medicine combinations to ensure optimal results. The focus of her work has evolved into the emotional origins of pain, stress management, women’s health, fertility, and pediatrics.

Her massage work has grown into a patient-based blend of Eastern and Western modalities making her sessions the perfect accompaniment to any acupuncture appointment. She regularly incorporates Swedish, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, Sports, Trigger Point and Myofacial Release work. For Daryl, reducing everyday stress is a high priority and an important precursor to addressing additional musculoskeletal and emotional imbalance in the body. With attention to breathing and relaxation techniques, Daryl works to ensure that you are an integral part of your own healing process.

Daryl developed Yinova’s Reproductive Health Bodywork Program, alongside Yinova founder Jill Blakeway.
