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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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

24 hour massage service Los Angeles, California

 

 

   Book me: info@drdot.com and write: "Robin/Los Angeles" in subject line ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Hi my name is Robin; I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I am a vivacious, forward thinking individual who loves to meet and learn about as many people as I can. When people ask me to tell them about myself I always like to say I have wings on my feet. Meaning I want  to just go out and experience as many adventures as I can (with  in reason of course!). I was lucky enough to backpack for a while and that journey gave me memories one can only dream about. 
My whole life I have been massaging, as far back as I can remember my father was a body builder and he found out one day I that I have very strong hands, and from the moment on I was his “little masseuse”   Years later as I started to attend a summer camp regularly word spread and my hands were put to work. As the years progressed my father went though a few surgeries and I really saw firsthand how massage therapy can help in so many different ways, from muscular to helping maintain a positive outlook.
So long story short here I am a masseuse today! 
Graduating from the California Healing Arts College here in LA I have come to realize the I do specialize in deep deep tissue work with focus on the lower back and shoulders.  I am also available for chair massage, shiatsu, aromatherapy and just help dealing with stress!
Just remember you need me and I knead you!!
Hope you see you when your in LA!

24 hour massage service Charlotte, North Caroline

 

 

Book me: info@drdot.com and write: "Ashley/Charlotte" in subject line ๐Ÿ™‚

 

My name is Ashley and I am a Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist. I was born and raised here in Charlotte, NC and have lived here all my life. I love listening to music, especially music with a beat I can dance to. For my massage therapy training, I attended the Therapeutic Massage Training Institute and graduated with honors in October of 2007. I have specialized training in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Energy Work, Chair Massage, Reflexology, Pregnancy Massage and Hot Stones. Since I became licensed, I have worked in a variety of settings including Chiropractic, spa and private practice… all of which have been very fulfilling. I've been told I give the best Deep Tissue massage ever… so if that's what you're looking for, I'm your girl!

I live and work by Love and the Golden Rule, meaning I treat others the way I would want to be treated. I'm very respectful and mindful of those around me. If you have a specific issue or problem and you like a certain amount of pressure, I treat you the way I would want to be treated if your problems were my problems. My favorite part of being a therapist is when a session ends and the client says, "That was EXACTLY what I needed!"

I am always looking for new ways to grow in my career and am very excited and honored to be a part of Dr. Dot's team!! It's like we say – the best of our biz working on the best of your biz! If you're ever in the Charlotte, NC (or Greensboro) area, book an appointment with me – anytime, anywhere! I also do in-calls as well!

24 hour massage service Dallas, Texas

 

 

Book me: info@drdot.com and write: " Melonee/Dallas" in subject line ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Hello, my name is Melonee and I am from Dallas. I specialize in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Chair and Prenatal Massage. I also work with Reiki, energy healing. The school I graduated from is Ke Kino Massage Academy. I believe that touch is the most powerful source of energy to humanity.

As a kid I used to walk my mother’s back and massage her shoulders. I enjoyed helping her feel better. In growing older I found that I still loved massaging and helping others with their stress. While working as a massage therapist I am also taking classes in psychology. I find the two specialties really go hand in hand in relieving stress in the mind and body. The passion I have for my career is great and I love what I do.

Thank you,
Melonee

Book me: info@drdot.com and write: " Steph Joy/Los Angeles" in subject line ๐Ÿ™‚ 

 

Born and raised in Detroit, MI majored in English in Atlanta, GA and landed on the map of my destiny as a massage therapist in Los Angeles, CA. Have been practicing massage for the past twenty years, certified massage instructor for seven years. 


Administering Deep Tissue, Swedish, Reflexology, Hot Stone, Shiatsu, Pre-Natal and Energy work is my unyielding pleasure! All these are great techniques; however I specialize in finding the knots and dispersing them back to the nothingness from whence they came! Knots are simply trapped energy, so why not set that energy free and let it serve a higher purpose. 


I have massaged in various settings; private homes, studios, recovery rooms, delivery rooms, offices, locker rooms, theater, etc. Have table; will travel, but I also have a serene in call spa location.

24 hour massage service Phoenix, Arizona

 
 
Book me: info@drdot.com and write: "Becky/Phoenix" in subject line ๐Ÿ™‚ 
 

Hello, I’m Becky. I graduated in 2007 with more than 1000 hours and a 4.0 in my massage program. 


My passion for this art has driven me to expand my abilities as a therapist and obtain 200 hour certifications in myotherapy, zen shiatsu, reflexology and aromatherapy. I’m also certified in deep tissue, Thai yoga, and LaStone therapies. While I tend to be drawn to deep work, I’m able to adapt my sessions to your specific needs. 


I subscribe to the theory that your body cannot be separated from your mind or soul, but that these three elements work together to create you as a whole person, and rely on each other for balance and well being. 


Each session is tailored to your specific needs, and I may use many different types of massage, including Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and trigger point work to name a few, in a single session. 


I am very grateful to have the opportunity to be involved in the process while you find harmony and balance.

24 Hour massage service in Portland, Maine

Contact me at info@drdot.com and write "Erin/Maine" in the subject line ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Hello, my name is Erin. I have always had a passion for helping others which led to getting my massage therapist license in 2004 and my 200 hour yoga teacher certification in 2008. My practice is founded on the idea of conscious touch, a deep awareness that each touch we make can have a profound effect on not only the physical body but also on the soul.

I specialize in a variety of modalities including:
    •    deep tissue massage
    •    swedish
    •    neuromuscular/trigger point therapy
    •    myofascial release
    •    temporomandibular joint (tmj) treatment (including inter-oral work)
    •    energy work
    •    prenatal massage
    •    yoga privates
    •    yoga/massage combination.

As old as time is the idea that self awareness can lead to a higher path in this life and a better understanding of our true needs. Through bodywork one can cultivate awareness and start to take the first steps in achieving this goal.

By catering to your needs be it relaxation, restoration, or even deep therapeutic release, I can take you out of the everyday chaos and help facilitate the healing process towards a calm and balanced life.
โ€จWhether on the table or on the mat, I am able to cater to each individual’s needs in helping them to achieve personal wellness and enhanced inner happiness.

Cheers, Erin
