Hi, I am Erica, I was born in Ethiopia and I have a Swiss and Eritrean heritage.
I grew up in Rome and after completion of my studies I headed off to Spain where I lived for 11 years.
My passion for massage began in the colourful and cosmopolitan city of Barcelona. In 2000, I obtained a "Therapeutic Massage" diploma which included Hand Massage, Foot Reflex zone massage and Lymphatic drainage training.
After that, I gained practical experience working in a Spa where I learnt to use Aromatheraphy: a massage technique which uses essantial oils to heal the body and the mind.
I continued working in Wellness Centres, Spas and Hotels for over twelve years both in Spain and in Italy, gaining expertise.
I love my job and I love making people feel better through the energy of my hands, in fact, clients often say that I am a natural healer. Practicing yoga regularly and being a vegetarian help me in my job.
I couldn't live without music, It's like a best friend to me! I love concerts, traveling, walking and most of all I love my beautiful daughter!
I am happy to be a part of DrDot. Team and I'm looking forward to my next massage!

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)
