Nivea graduated from the Watauga Community College as a Massage Therapist in July 2003, and has been practicing it as a part time job ever since.
In addition to her 500-hour certificate from WCC, Nivea also has a Bachelorís degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from the University of Panama, in her home country Panama. She also has a Masterís degree in Education majoring in TESOL from the university of Wollongong Australia, and a Masterís degree in Spanish from UNCW, North Carolina.
Her educational backgrounds complement her style of massage therapy marvelously, and her clients appreciate her firm, strong touch, her intuition, and her massage competence. Nivea uses her communication skills to gain the best understanding of what her clientís needs are, in order to assure that those needs are met, because she believes that massage therapy is an interactive process between the therapist and the client.
Nivea offers a great combination of therapeutic and treatment massage techniques where she applies all her massage skills such as: foot reflexology, Swedish massage, hot stone massage, and craniosacral therapy level I technique. She uses her intuition and education to provide her clients with the most effective treatments she can.†The integration of these modalities create a special healing and nurturing bodywork session
Outside of massage therapy, Nivea has a passion for the outdoors and spends the warmer months kayaking, hiking, walking or biking. She loves living in North Carolina and appreciates all the beauty and diversity that the state has to offer.

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)

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.
