Hi! My name is Nancy.
I came to massage therapy through my love of yoga. I began practicing yoga in 2004 as a means to heal stress-related neck and upper back pain, and I am now pain-free.
I became a yoga teacher in 2009, and through my teaching, I found that I was drawn to the therapeutic aspect of yoga more so than the "workout" aspect. From there, the shift for me to study massage and bodywork was quite natural, and I enrolled in a 620-hour program at the Institute for Therapeutic Massage in Morristown, NJ in 2010, focusing primarily on Swedish and medical massage.
I was certified by the State of New Jersey in 2011. Since becoming certified, I have worked in a spa, in a holistic center and for chiropractors. My massage style is tailored to each clientís needs. Among the modalities I use are Swedish, deep tissue, myofascial release, foot reflexology and Reiki energy healing.
Why I do what I do (and why I love it)
I believe very strongly in helping others to achieve and maintain overall wellness through holistic means. As one of my teachers said, pain-free living is our birthright. There is no greater gift that I can give people than to help free them from pain! When we are pain-free in our physical bodies, the mind and spirit will most certainly follow this path.
And lastly, Iím a lifelong music lover, so working with Dr. Dotís team is the perfect gig for me!

Thank you for setting up Therapists along the way of our tour. THAT was a huge help to Band/Crew to keep them feeling better and fit!

“Dot Stein I've used your services twice the last 2 months. Both times we were provided with responsive communication (yay Michele) and professional therapists who understood what my artists and dancers needed. The therapists were caring and competent. Thank you for the service you provide and your commitment to us out here on the road. Bravo!” Christine M. Tour Manager of Nutcracker Moscow Dance Squad and RAIN
“Lars (Stockholm Dotbot) took care of the band-members and left all in awe!
He provided a table, towels etc which made it very easy to work with.
Very on point and definitely made for an amazing show at night - thank you again!
Romi (Prague Dotbot) came by, arrived early, was very well prepped (had her own table, scented candles, oils, towels) and had the brightest smile we'd seen in days!
She took care of the band-members who all were left amazed and startled by her touch ;)
