Hi, I’m Ted James from Memphis, TN. I grew up just a couple of blocks from Elvis Presley’s home so I’m used to being around famous people. :)
I am a graduate of the TN School of Massage and specialize in deep tissue, trigger point, Swedish, hot stone, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, & chair massage. I do massage work at our Level One Trauma Center for car accident victims to help speed up their recovery time and restore flexibility.
Many clients who’d had a bad experience with another therapist have told me that the massage I gave them was specifically tailored to their individual needs and they have now become my regular clients.
I am a drummer, choreographer & dance instructor in addition to being a massage therapist. I’ve performed in television and in plays at The Orpheum Theater, & have taught dance & drum @ our inner city schools for several years.
I have been married for 12 years. My wife and I live on 10 acres now, about 30 minutes south of Memphis. One of our passions is rescuing abused and unwanted animals, and we currently have 11 rescues - in the form of horses, dogs…and a miniature donkey.
I am glad to be a member of Dr. Dot’s team because I have a great respect for musicians and know how important the “pre show” time is. It’s a privilege to help you, our VIP Memphis visitors, be able to perform at your peak level and I look forward to working with you.
Thank you again for taking such good care of us. Your Dotbots are doing a great job for us out here and making happiness for our bands and crew.
