Dr. Dot update

Dot-NYC-June-2017

It’s been a long time since I posted a blog other than introducing a new Dot-Bot. Life got too busy for my blogging fingers. Used to LOVE to blog but then hurricane Desmond came into my life 🙂

He is now almost 5 years old (August 20th is his birthday) and I love him soooooo much. He brings me happiness everyday. He says the funniest things- I just can’t even believe.

Last night he said “you can not get old Mama. I might not love you if you get old. Stay like this please Mama” and I said “well everyone gets old Desmond. Or they die. Do you want me to get old and be around or do you want me to die like Muny. Then you will never see me again if I die” and he said “umm, well just don’t get old. What is this about Getting Old

that everyone wants to do it? Why do they want to get old anyways?” hahaha. I said “well no one WANTS to get old, it is just part of life my cutie”. And he said I want to not get old”

So funny how little kids are so honest and how their questions and thoughts make us grown-ups think again and laugh out loud. He is such a blessing and I savor every minute

of everyday even though I am walking around so tired I FEEL like I am gonna die lol.

Probably would make some people annoyed but I let him sleep in my bed. He HAS a bed but refuses to stay in it. He wants to sleep next to mama. And he is a restless sleeper. omg. He kicks, tosses, turns, wants a sip of water; wakes to make sure I am here next to him. Looking at him right now; the little angel. Of course I felt this way when my daughter Jasmine was his age too but nothing compares to the love between a Mother and Son. It’s the same between a Father and Daughter I hear. Mommy’s little Boy and Daddy’s little girl they say. Well in my case, it stands true. Oh how it does. He shows me unconditional love that makes my heart swell with happiness (except in the supermarket sometimes lol – where if I do NOT buy the toy of his desire he throws a wobbler (tantrum) that seems like he has retracted any love for me hahaha).

I would do anything for my children, anytime, anywhere, it’s all for them. Every dime I earn I would gladly give to them. Best love in the world. So happy. Mind you, if I could buy sleep, I would be bankrupt in a heart beat 🙂

Not easy having a 4 year old at my age. Oh Come on, you know I am no Spring Chicken anymore. Just wish I had 10 little children to take care of but you know how expensive life is and taking care of kids is dear (expensive). So I just savor this one and give him all of my love and attention. I have to wait until he goes to bed (usually late at night!) to start working (the 800+ emails I receive everyday and I mean, every SINGLE day) have to be taken care of otherwise they back up and then the next day I have twice as many. And every parent (who is NOT a Millionaire) knows there is the daily grind at home with house work… trash, laundry, dishes, floors, shopping, cooking, etc..Very hard to maintain friendships or any sort of physical activity. But that is reality when you choose to be a parent. Plus we ALL know I have had quite a run up until then, like up until about 2010, I had so much freedom and so many adventures- well my daughter was grown by then and I was free to travel, work, work out, sing, SLEEP etc 🙂 So it was a HUGE adjustment to be where I am at right now.

Hoping to get my book done SOON. Calling my book “Before I forget” because face it, I need to get my adventures in writing, before I get to old and freakin’ forget. Just my photographs alone need to be published for all to enjoy. I am sort of like the Rock and Roll cinderella or the Forrest Gump of Rock and Roll, these tid-bits need to be shared.

But where would these spare hours come from? Who knows. I barely have time to sleep- ever. Maybe when Desmond starts school this coming Sept. But I was hoping to use those hours to sleep and recover. Head still hurts from those two pesky Brain surgeries I had.. August 2016 and January 2017.. remember? I had two tumors removed.. huge process. And really had minimal help at home to recover, well it was never enough help, especially the first time in August, I was up cooking my own meals and doing housework and alone with Desmond most of the time. It was hell but it kept me so busy I didn’t notice the pain like most people would have. NO Pain killers apart from a few Tylenol PM’s, but then hardly even any of those. Not a fan of drugs of any kind. I threw a full, unopened bottle of Percaset (spelling?) away that my brain surgeon gave me. Did not even want to try one. So afraid of being hooked on such things. Like what happened to Prince. Sad.

I did have help the 2nd time around, but it was never enough. My friend Steve moved in for a while to help with Desmond. I got to sleep a bit more than I normally would. But taking care of Desmond literally requires 3 adults full time lol. Anyone who knows me well, knows this fact. “Takes a village to raise a child” is correct. Sadly I have ZERO relatives in my state. They all live super far away- NH, GA, FLA, CT… no one around. And friends are too busy too; swamped in their own lives, so it’s brutal.

Anyways, I am rambling on.. gotta sleep, just checking in to vent and gush about my little Son who I adore so much. Daughter lives in Germany and I barely see her but that’s life- when they grow up, they live their own lives so cherish them while you can

Massage Delivery service in Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK

Julie_Belfast

To book me, email: bookings@drdot.com and write “Julie/Belfast” in the subject line 🙂
 

Born in Germany, I moved to Belfast in 1997 to embark on an English Literature degree, which I completed in June 2000.

I started my journey of becoming a Massage Therapist in 2004, with a qualification in Indian Head Massage. In 2006 I graduated from the Belfast Institute of Further and Higher Education in Swedish Massage, Anatomy & Physiology and in 2007 with a Diploma in Body Massage. In 2014 I enrolled on a massage training course in Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy with the prestigious JING Institute in Brighton, England. I am currently a second year student on a degree level qualification (BTEC Level 6 – the highest massage qualification available in the UK to date) in Clinical and Sports Massage with the same training provider.

My approach to massage is mindful; I pride myself in working with a careful, listening touch, allowing the body to open and heal at its own pace. I now offer outcome based treatments for long-term chronic pain issues, as well as injuries, and stress related conditions to my clients, as well as injury prevention and post event recovery for the more active. I feel deeply honoured and grateful to work with touch therapies and help improve people’s quality of life and induce a sense of complete wellbeing.

I have been in private practice since 2006. Being a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists, I regularly engage in CPD training and have post-graduate certificates in Deep Tissue Massage, Massage for people living with cancer (Gayle McDonald course), Seated Acupressure and Holistic Facials.

I am growing ever more passionate about bodywork and have also completed a certificate in Advanced Myofascial Release Techniques, using indirect and structural approaches to facilitate re-balancing and healing of the body.

I have also been working with Reiki Healing for 15 years and feel that I am extremely well placed to offer specialist therapeutic  bodywork treatments, completely tailored to the individual. I combine all my skills to create a unique style of massage that is highly enjoyable and effective in delivering results.

I love movement and am a passionate yoga student in my spare time and have been practising meditation for over 12 years.

Massage Delivery in Aspen Colorado (24/7)

Kate_Denver_Aspen

To book me email: bookings@drdot.com and write “Kate/Aspen” in the subject line 🙂

Hey There! My name is Kate and I live on the Western Slope of Colorado.
There is nothing more I love than Massage Therapy! I have always been interested in working with the body and found my way to this career in 2004. Since then I have spent countless hours studying and working with the body. It is definitely my calling in life and it’s something I’m fantastic at.

After completing my Massage Therapy schooling in Connecticut, I moved to Colorado. I moved here without knowing a single person. I was in search adventure, a more relaxed environment and of course more sunshine! I can’t say that I’ve ever regretted it. Since moving here I have traveled all around this state. In fact, travel has always been a huge interest of mine as well. I have traveled all around the country as well as internationally. That’s why I’m excited to work for Dr. Dot, it is an opportunity to combine two of my greatest passions!

From traveling so much, I know how important it is to take a moment to take care of yourself!Long hours and miles on the road definitely takes a toll on your body.
Not only do I understand how taxing traveling can be on the body, I know how to read the body to help minimize or erase all your aches and pains.

The modalities that I am trained in are:

Swedish
Deep Tissue
Neuromuscular
Myofascial
CranioSacral

You are an artist, so I am. Every massage I do is different and each session is shaped around your needs, desires and goals. I like to mix all the modalities and knowledge I have to provide the most awesome massage I can!
If you’re ready for the best….no need to look further!
I look forward to working with you- To keep you going STRONG!

Massage Delivery Service in Charleston, SC 24/7

Katy_05.08.2011_04.35.36

Book me: Email:  bookings@drdot.com and write “Katy/SC” in subject line please 🙂

Hello my name is Katy and I am a licensed massage therapist living in SC. I am originally from San Diego, but I grew up in Charleston, South Carolina. I became a massage therapist in 2005 because I have always been interested in how I can best help those around me, and I also wanted a career that I could travel with and meet interesting people. I currently have my Master’s in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I find the combination of Eastern and Western philosophy to be extremely beneficial in the treatment of most clients. I am proficient in Swedish, deep tissue, craniosacral therapy, reflexology, trigger point therapy, and tui-na.
​Having grown up in an artsy Southern town, music has played an extremely important role in my life. I enjoy everything from bluegrass to metal and am always interested to hear new bands that I have not been exposed to. I am very athletic and surf competitively around the country. Surfing has given me very strong hands as well as an acute understanding of pain throughout the body. I have been told that I have a very special and aware touch. Massage therapy has given me the opportunity to make a living doing what I love and to learn first hand while I further my education in an accompanying field.
​I am thrilled that Dr. Dot has allowed me the chance to work with some of the greatest musicians on the planet. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity and I look forward to working with you when you come to SC.

Hi, I’m Lea and I’ve been giving massages my whole life.  I got licensed in 2003 so I could help more people.  Deep tissue release is my massage passion but having a large skill set I  can cater to a wide range of needs, from Swedish massage, CranialSacral work to geriatric or sleep inducing sessions. The treatment is designed to suit your needs.  I also spent years working in a physical therapy office so I tend to focus on therapeutic rather than pure relaxation massage.  Looking forward to working with you soon.
