24 hour massage service Jacksonville, Florida

  Book me: info@drdot.com and write: ” Marianne/Jacksonville” in subject line 🙂

Hi! My name is Marianne, your massage therapist for Jacksonville and St. Augustine, FL, the oldest city in the nation.

Have you ever thought how deeply music can take you, and to combine it with the healing touch of massage, can only enhance the experience. While still in school, my thought was that if I can bring my client to a heightened state of relaxation through my healing touch and to combine it with my love of music, then I’m onto something. It was then that a friend told me about Dr. Dot. This was precisely what I was looking for. I was introduced to massage through a Shaman friend of mine, while living in DC in 1994, after a back issue left me with little mobility. Little did I know that the healing aspects he saw within me then, is what I would be doing many years later.

Working on family and friends for roughly 20+ years, and knowing my gift for massage at an early age, I recently decided that it would be in my best interest to become licensed as a massage therapist. Throughout the course of my lifetime, I have been surrounded with music and musicians, and worked with them whether singing or writing, in the States and overseas. I understand the rigors of being on the road, in uncomfortable buses for days and weeks at a time. In combining two great loves of mine, music and massage; as music is my air, and my hands are my gift, I have found my true path in life.

I have been told by numerous people, that my touch is very deep with strong hands with healing properties. I specialize in deep tissue, traditional Swedish, chair and my own integration of intuition, healing and positive imagery. In blending a music/Psychology major, I always knew I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives and in the world. Music is about the emotion, and massage; the mental and physical. My motto is, “You never know how stressed you are, until someone lays a hand on you”. My goal is to be that person that takes away your pain and leaves you with a sense of total peace. I look forward to working with you!!

24 hour massage service Tacoma, Seattle

  Book me: info@drdot.com and write: ” Lisa/Tacoma” in subject line 🙂

Hi, I am Lisa! I was born and raised in Washington (no I don’t have webbed feet.). I knew for a long time I wanted to be a massage therapist but was waiting for the right time, after a few dead end jobs I called up Everest College (formerly Ashmead) and enrolled. I finished massage school in 2010 and wasted no time finding a job; within five minutes of my massage interview I was hired!  I had many amazing instructors throughout my schooling and I took a little something from each of them and made it my own. After my year long Massage/Spa program I continued a 3 month course through Everest for Sports Massage which taught me about muscle firing patterns and less invasive ways to decrease hypertonic muscles. Many of my patients I have worked on call me the “digger” cause I tend to find their “knots” and dig them out, my passion is to make each person who gets on my table feel better then when they walked in the door. Currently I see a lot of auto accidents, L&I, and pre/post surgical patients, I work for a chiropractor and a well respected Massage Therapist in the Puyallup area. My techniques range from Swedish, deep tissue, chair, contract/relax, post isometric relaxation, reciprocal inhibition, treatment, sports, and postural dysfunctions. I am looking forward to being a part of Dr. Dot’s team and finding all your knots you didn’t know you had, till then take care and drink extra water!

Hi, I’m Mary.  I’m a native Southern Californian.  I am very passionate about my work as a massage therapist/bodyworker and my clients are routinely surprised by what is possible when massage/bodywork focuses holistically on their specific needs.

Every massage/bodywork session is customized for the body I am working on and I routinely use a mix of the listed modalities.  The goal in massage, as in all holistic healing methods, is to balance the body and bring it to a state of health.  That is what I strive to do.

I look forward to working on you.

24 hour massage service New Haven, Connecticut

    Book me: info@drdot.com and write: “Sakkara/Connecticut” in subject line 🙂

I have been practicing massage therapy professionally since completion of my studies at Lincoln Technical Institute in 2008. I’ve always seemed to be intuitive healer, and  I have been interested in  the healing arts since I was young.

While at Lincoln Technical Institute, I studied all of the core  classes necessary to become a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) in the state of Connecticut and receive national certification through the NCBTMB. I’ve studied many massage modalities including; Swedish, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Trigger Point, Aromatherapy, Pregnancy, and Sports . I enjoy blending techniques from these modalities to adapt to the unique needs of each person I work with. My style is to start broad and gentle, to relax the mind and body, while assessing the needs of my client, then to focus on specific muscles and areas of chronic tension. I like to receive feedback and I encourage open honest communication during my massages.That being said I am also content with silence, and am able to use my intuition and cues from the body to decide on the course of the massage.

I take pride in my work and satisfaction in being able to help people feel better; mind, body, and spirit. Thank you for reading and I hope we meet soon!

24 hour massage service Omaha,Nebraska

  Book me: info@drdot.com and write: “Wendy/Nebraska” in subject line 🙂

Hello my name is Wendy, I was born and raised right here in Nebraska and ready to serve you with a great therapeutic massage tailored to your needs. I am the mother of a very active boy who keeps me running and also is my number one client.  I love cooking and St Bernard’s, I knew at a young age that I loved massage.  I was the one who would be giving back and shoulder rubs at all our school events, I was told back then that I had a great touch. I really feel in love with massage when I was in Esthetics school when we were taught a small about of massage manipulations and decided then that I wanted to be a L.M.T as well so after graduation back to school I went.

 As well as being a licensed massage therapist I hold 3 other licenses, I am a Cosmetologist,Esthetician and Nail Tech.   While I was in school I had a steady returning clientele that consisted of UNL Track and Volleyball members, they loved my Deep Tissue massages. Being able to work in such a rewarding field and being able to call myself and L.M.T is such an honor, could not imagine doing anything else.   I love life and am passionate about working with all types of people from athletes to business professionals, singers, musicians and celebrities.  I am also fortunate enough to provide my services as a Physical Rehabilitation Assistant at a local Chiropractic and Headache clinic.  I look forward to meeting you soon!!!

Sincerely your Nebraska DotBot,

Wendy

24 hour massage service Wilmington, North Carolina

     Book me: info@drdot.com and write: “Andrea/North Carolina” in subject line 🙂
Hi, I’m Andrea. I’m a woman of many talents and it seems Massage Therapy is the best one so far. My work as a Med Mal Paralegal really pays the bills but my work in massage feeds the soul.  Miraculously my degree in music puts a lyrical spin on everything and keeps this right-left brain dance of mine in tune.  I studied vocal performance back in the 90’s but didn’t have the cojones to get out of my small town so I had to get a “real job”.  After working lawsuits with the sick, injured, dead or bereaved for almost a decade I knew it was time to do something before my soul hardened completely. As a life long chorus girl I always loved the pre-performance warm ups where we turned and rubbed the shoulders of our fellow singers. I was always moved by my grateful recipient’s response.  From a young age I knew there was really something special about massage. A few years ago, on a wing and a prayer I started night classes and devoured every bit of information I could about this ancient art of healing. I am now a better person for it.  There is NOTHING like a good massage and you will roll off my table happy. I have uncanny focus.  You’ll be able to feel that focus as I search for the unrest in your muscles and joints to help sooth and promote your own body’s ability to heal itself.  You can trust me and my hands (forearms, elbows…) to work out the tough stops and smooth out the rest.  I truly love what I do and am so very grateful to help others in such an incredible way.
Many blessings…

24 hour massage service in London

   Book me: info@drdot.com and write: “Christelle/London” in subject line.

 

 

Hello, I’m Christelle and I’m passionate about massage therapy and music and the ability of touch, movement and energy exchange to enable healing.

Originally from a background in Herbal and Natural Medicine, this led me towards bodywork as an important part of helping people to heal and achieve optimum health. 
I combine the most enjoyable and effective elements of Swedish, Holistic and Deep Tissue massage to tailor each treatment to your needs after listening carefully to what you need from the massage.  I also work quite intuitively to find knots and release tension and energy blockages, using firm therapeutic pressure as well as incorporating breath and energy work during the session. This enables deep relaxation and relief from tension.  
I’ve trained in in Anatomy and Physiology, Swedish and Holistic Massage, Aromatherapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Hot Stone massage, Reiki, Ear Acupuncture and Hopi Ear Candling.

Other interests and work include dancing the night away with friends, singing and playing guitar, yoga, herbs & nutrition.

I’ve been told I have a very calming energy about me which people find helps them to relax and that my massage is both restorative and nurturing with a flowing and rhythmical style. 

I look forward to massaging you!

Christelle x
