Hi, My name is Melanie and I am an LMT. I graduated from NMTI at the end of 2012. I had formally worked in Accounting & Finance for years before getting laid off, and changing careers.
I’m soo glad I did! Becoming an LMT has been the best move for me, as I am a people person, and I love helping people feel their best.
I also have a love for music, with singing and writing in my background; working with the Dr. Dot team is a win win opportunity.
With my therapeutic touch, and attention to the concern of my clients, I deliver amazing results…(so I’ve been told). With that, I cater to a more deeper tissue massage approach, with stretching (as desired or needed), but have no problem administering the medium to light ‘feather’ touch if requested/needed.
I practice, Therapeutic/Deep Tissue, Swedish, Sports, Reflexology, Pre Natal, Hot Stone, some Myofascial Release, chair, and Geriatric massage.
I’ve worked at spas, massage studios, for and with chiropractors. I’ve also worked sporting events, and I look forward in working with you!

Hello. My name is Kathleen. Although I am new to the drdot.com organization, I have had the privilege of offering massage therapy to many individuals through orthopedists, chiropractors, spas, corporate wellness centers, sporting events, special interest groups and private residences since 1995. I provide an Integrative Massage incorporating such modalities as Swedish, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue and Reflexology. With my extensive experience, I can pinpoint tension areas, renew fatigued muscles and administer relief. Two of my treasured compliments have been, “Your hands are not of this world,” and “You are the best thing that ever happened to this company.” I look forward to the opportunity of serving you!

I have been a massage therapist for 5 years. I graduated from the Arizona School of Massage Therapy in 2005 and have been reaping the profound rewards ever since. Being given the opportunity to work with Dr. Dot and her Dot Bots is like a dream come true, because it combines the two very great loves of my life: bodywork and music.
I have always been in awe of human anatomy and physiology. However, it is the connection between the mind, body, and soul that is truly enlightening. To have the privilege and the gift to affect any person’s ailment, whether physical or emotional, is something I will forever be grateful for.
I do not consider myself a “fixer” or a “healer”; I am merely a facilitator of healing. It is the partnership between the client and the therapist that achieves that undeniable feeling of wellness. For me, being such a strong piece of that partnership is beyond fulfilling. I, too, get something therapeutic from each session I provide, and nothing inspires me more than a satisfied and motivated client. This is real work that attains real benefits. Bodywork is not only beneficial, but necessary for all of our well-beings.
I am a nationally certified massage therapist, and I continue to broaden my realm of knowledge by studying different modalities. I am currently going to school for Physical Therapy Assisting. I am based in Philadelphia, PA and I look forward to working with you soon!

Book me at email@example.com and put "Lars/Philly" in the subject line, thanks
My name is Lars and I recently moved from my native Sweden to the US with my family to pursue the American Dream!
I've been working as a professional masseur since January 2009 after retaining my license with the European Massage Academy in Stockholm, Sweden.
I have always been into sports from a young age, starting with basketball and went onto handball which I later also coached, so training and the body have always been a great interest. I found massage fascinating and interesting and found I have a talent for it, so I decided to follow that path after giving up my own chauffeur company and here I am!
Back home I had my own successful business and have helped many with their ailments ranging from headaches, neck pains, back pains etc to just a relaxing massage after a days work. I also worked as head masseur with our local hockey team. My other great passion in life is music! I have been to hundreds of gigs over the years, I have an impressive CD collection and have done some DJ work for fun as I love music so much. So working for Dr. Dot is just the best combination in the world for me: massage and music, can it get any better than that?
Here are the areas I work in:
•Sitting down massage
•Advanced deep massage (Finnish massage)
•Anatomy & physiology
•Acute injury treatment
•Work injury treatment
•Head- and face massage
I am regarded as a friendly, quiet, hard working, respectful person with a calm nature. I am flexible, easy to reach and I don’t mind driving distances or working crazy hours. I have no problem in following instructions and am eager to finish my work with a satisfied customer. Making you feel good is very important to me!
Hi my name is Nadine and I was born and raised in this awesome city of brotherly love! I graduated from The school of body therapies I have been practicing the art of bodywork for 10 years now and I am nationally certified. I got into massage when I worked on family and friends. They all encouraged me to get go to school for massage and I used it to supplement my income while in college. It then turned into more than just a part time job and here I am. I love massage and its benefits, I am a true believer that the client should receive a massage tailored to their specific needs and I want only to help my clients maintain the best of health in mind, body and soul.I have worked on just about every type of physical issue from cancer to accidents. Over the years I have grown to love my craft more and more as people are realizing the necessity of physical health through other ways in which pharmaceuticals are not involved. We must learn to love and treat our bodies with respect and that is why I am here. I have traveled all over the place and I come from a very musical background- including that I married a musician. I have a deep understanding to what grueling schedules a musician has and their needs to maintain proper health physically. I am here 24/7 to help in maintaining a great physical and mental health. I am trained in:
-Deep tissue massage -Pre-natal -Hot stone therapy -Reiki II -shiatsu -myofacial -reflexology
< Me, dumb ass and sleep deprived forgot to cut the music clip from "Philly Part 1" so the music goes on 3 minutes longer than the freakin' video footage. Oh well, at least it's a great song.
I told my uncle Jack that for some strange reason, I felt 'at home in Philly. He said "probably because when your Mother was young, Philly was her stomping grounds, her play ground for raising extreme amounts of hell". My Mom was born in Camden, NJ and even though I hear it's a shit hole now, it was apparently great back then.
I was asked to go to Philly to massage Mr. Simon Cowell, who is on the American Idol audition tour. I left NYC around 2am and Pooh and I got there at 3:55 am. Last time I was in that area, well, Camden, to massage Sting, it took me SIX HOURS because of traffic, so I learned one should never attempt that route in the day time, if in a hurry.
Had a wonderful sleep on the floor of my Four Seasons Hotel room floor. The bed was as soft as Hugh Hefner's balls. They need to invest in some new mattresses. I prefer the floor anyways.
I find the Philly accent so amusing. Especially the way the say "Coffee". I pretend I didn't hear them and make them repeat it over and over again. It's hilarious. It's like "Cawfee"
Danny, my 'Boken buddy, reminded me that FET my top friend from myspace lives in Philly, so we finally got to meet and make some cheeky pics & videos.
Don't let him fool you, there is Beer in that there jug ^
Fet and I had a BLAST from the moment we met. He is a good laugh and has a good heart.
I didn't know which way to point my camera, there was so much action, so many sights and things to gawk at..
People are STARVING and yet us American's still invent and drive these obscene gas guzzlers that destroy the Ozone at an alarming rate, just to show off and be "cool".
I am at a loss for words….
Doesn't that look like a beautiful day to you? LOVED it.
This is where the naughty behavior started; the statues were oh so inviting.
"Ride 'em in RAWHIDE!"
< A gift from Danny
Danny insisted I give Simon these silly collectors card, which pokes fun at him. I wasn't sure how he would act, but I love to push people's buttons, so I handed it to him and he just laughed. Simon and I chatted for a half hour before I started the massage, I guess so he could get some insight as to what I was like as a person. After a while he realized that I was extremely cheeky, very sarcastic indeed and he said "wow, and I thought I was mean. Dr. Dot you should be on my show; you would even make ME look nice"
Ahh, music to my ears. Heh heh. Yes, I am MEAN. Love it! The Grinch all year long in fact.
Anyways, Simon even posed with the silly card, as you can see below. He is so fucking cool. Some celebs are stuck up or stuck on themselves and refuse to pose and some even snicker at giving an autograph, but Simon was fine with me taking his pic and signing an autograph for me. What a sweet heart.
Danny is over the moon about this ^ fyi
You can tell he is a nice guy by his smiling eyes..
I STILL can't figure out the f*cking self timer on my camer, so I took this one with my left hand ^
I don't have a scanner here, so I had to photograph it ^ Doh!
He is for sure one of my favorite clients now. SUPER polite and generous; an English gentleman.
Typical situation here ^ All bed clothes on the floor, where I sleep, and Pooh close to my heart (I have had him over 20 years & can not sleep without him)
work, work, work, it never ends ^ and since I LOVE what I do, it doesn't feel like work.
On my way back up to NYC, one has to pass through Cherry Hill, NJ and I was speeding along, on the phone when this guy above, caught my eye. I nearly caused a major car crash by zipping over a couple lanes of traffic at full speed as not to miss the street closest to this amusing Diner. I even went up a one way street, the wrong way and pulled an illegal u-turn to get into the parking lot.
This is one of those old fashioned diners, where the people still eat in their cars. ^ I couldn't BELIEVE it. That old couple couldn't believe that I have never seen one before.
The Elvis impersonator was out there, alone, with a TINY boom box and an Elvis cd, singing away, to NO ONE. He was so sweet to perform for me and pose. I gave him a massive tip and a hug. It was around 90 degrees out that day, so he must have been sweating his great balls of fire off in that red polyester jumpsuit. Poor fella. The stuff I come across is so bizarre, I am So happy I have my camera on me at ALL times now a days. Wish I did that when I followed the Grateful Dead. That was a nonstop freak show. I was too care free to carry a camera or a cell phone or even a beeper. If it didn't fit in my back pack, it didn't come with me (and yes, Pooh was there with me too).
It was so fun to meet the photo-shop King in person (Fet). Look at the funny things he makes me ^
