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!
Yared enjoyed the massage very much!
Talked about it all evening.
Thank you again and I will contact you for any artist I will work with

“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
“"thank you and your company for coming to our need and being very accessible to our artists and touring entourage and thank you for always being there for my band/crews over the years!"” ROB ZOMBIE | PRODUCTION: Samantha Luettke
“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
