Meet Rae, the newest member to the Dr. Dot massage team down South:
"Having a chance to blend 2 of my biggest passions is a dream come true, and I am ecstatic to be on Dr. Dot’s team!!
I was raised by hippie parents on all the right music—Beatles, Zeppelin, Moody Blues, etc. Today you can find everything from Aimee Mann to James Brown to U2 in my collection. I am a music fiend! Much of my youth was spent watching MTV (when they still played music), and I mastered every Janet Jackson routine and Motley Crue drumbeat there was. I decided early on that I was going to either be a rock star, or marry one.
The night I met my husband, he was playing guitar onstage. Trying to impress him, I offered to massage his hands, even though I had no training. I guess I did well, since we’re still together! Soon after we met, I chose to leave social work behind for massage school. My first day, a fellow student let me practice on her. She told me it felt like I’d already been doing massage for years, and I knew then I had found my calling. I spent the next 18 months learning massage, yoga, reiki, and anything else I could get my hands on.
Looking back, it now seems obvious I was meant to do healing work. Growing up in an affectionate family taught me power of touch, and it seems from an early age I had a natural gift of intuition. Using massage and energy work enabled me to heal my body and mind when I developed problems that doctors and medications couldn’t fix. Now I live a full life without any meds, not even a multivitamin! It is so important to me to continue sharing this gift with others, to help them take charge of their health.
My approach is intuitively and holistically based, treating your whole being. I consider myself a channel, working where my hands are guided. Each session is tailored to your specific needs, and I can provide anything from a soothing Swedish to an intense Trigger Point session. If you need healing and I’m not available in person, I can send you Reiki as well.
Chances are, I’ll be at your show anyway, so it would be an honor to have you book me: firstname.lastname@example.org (put "for CHANDRA/NC" in subject line).
