Hello, my name is Catherine , but my friends call me Cathy.
I am half French and half Brazilian and I live in Athens, Greece-the country that I love.I speak:Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, French,Greek, English and a bit of German.
I was born in Brazil and right after graduating from University (Psychology) I went to New York to train as a dancer. Being a dancer offered me the opportunity to travel around the world ,dancing. That was when I had my first contact with massage, getting the first steps of Shiatsu from the Japanese dancers.
After traveling , as a dancer , for about ten years, I lived in London to study Physical education and fitness;then traveled a bit more, working with club Med, as a dancer and a fitness instructor.
Finally I decided to set up in Greece( the most beautiful country in the world, in my opinion) where I have been working as: a fitness instructor, a massage therapist, aromatherapist and Botanologist ( I find that they complement each other). I found a great school , here, where the teachers inspired me to use my hands and the local essential oils to heal.
In massage, I can offer you :deep tissue, holistic, relaxing, Shiatsu, Reflexology and Linphatic drainage. I have been massaging my personal trainer clients for years, now and they love my strong touch. In ancient Greece, massage was considered to be medicine and it was used in therapy in ancient hospitals called Askleipia that existed since 1.247 before Christ (when Asklepios was born and then taught by Xeironas )
I find DrDot.com a great idea! So many times I got lame massages in nice hotels (And I cursed myself for paying for a massage by an "octopus")from therapists smelling cigarette, iuk! With Dr Dot you can have a strong massage anytime, anyplace from someone who speaks English and is willing to give the most professional massage.
I love music-ever present in my life:good times, bad times, professionally, relaxing etc...I put music for my cats to make them go to sleep. The fact that I worked as a dancer makes me respect artists and their"space"-I know how annoying is to be followed non stop and being asked personal questions by strangers( which happened to me in Istanbul)-so, now, I try not to bother anyone when I am backstage.
I hope to massage you when you come to Athens and relieve you from any pain.
See you soon

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 ;)
