Hi my name is Michelle.
I have been a clinical massage therapist for over 15 years. Being a musician can be tough on the body. Repetitive motion exists in every facet of your craft and this constant motion will bring you aches and pains that can wreak havoc with your performance.
I understand your body and how it moves with any given instrument you play, in addition to feeling those fancy stage moves that you regret the next day after the adrenaline of performing wears off. And vocalists…. you are not left out. You can benefit from abdominal and diaphragm work to gain better lung capacity to maximize your true vocal potential.
Each massage therapy session is customized utilizing several advanced techniques to regain range of motion, movement and overall performance power. I know the pain touring takes on the body as I have traveled with professional cycling team. I am an avid athlete myself, I know “just take time off” to rest is not always an option but massage can help you make it a bit better out there on the road.
I support the local musician community by being an active Health Alliance for Austin Musicians provider. I look forward to working with you as part of the famous Dr. Dot team.
Gotta say, all your girls are great, but Michelle is AWESOME. Not just saying that because I know her either! She's on the A team. :-)
Thanks yet again!

“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.
