Hi, I’m Andrea.
My three greatest passions are Massage, Music and Travel. Being employed by Dr. Dot is my dream job. She is a true inspiration to myself and many others.
I started my career studying a BA in Adult Nursing, as my ambition has always been to help others. However my anatomy knowledge and healthcare experience inspired me to train as a Complementary Therapist and I graduated in June 2012 with a BSc(hons) degree in Complementary Therapies.
I am a highly qualified practitioner with Deep Tissue Massage, Remedial Massage and Holistic Massage along with Aromatherapy, Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Reflexology. Since graduating I have worked at a local hospice; working alongside conventional medicine and treating those facing life threatening illnesses. I also work with onsite massage and mobile call outs. Since graduating I have continued to study post graduate short course to learn new techniques and to develop as a Complementary Therapist.
I currently live and work in Cardiff and I feel I am very lucky to be able to work in a profession that I thoroughly enjoy.
I am a sports woman myself; enjoying water sports, roller skating, but I was a competitive netball player for many years. Although I do not compete any more I still keep up my training and understand the injuries obtained by busy hard working individuals.
I pride myself as being an extremely calm and laid back person, which can assist you in achieving a state of relaxation. I am deceptively strong and extremely intuitive. I will listen to what you need to achieve from the massage, and I will draw skills from different disciplines making each treatment unique for you.
I am always available for tours, gigs and call outs. Although I live in South Wales (U.K) I am flexible to where I can work.
I look forward to working with you in the future.
Love Andrea :)

I have been using Dr. Dots "DotBots" for years. Her girls have seen many of the artists and crew that I have TM/PM'd for. Her girls are always on time, friendly, and professional. You need to make time and room on your tour for Dr. Dot's services. By far the best in the business.” Clay Hutson Production Manager (Guns and Roses, Alice in Chains, Staind)
“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.
