Arlene in Saginaw ( Tri Cities of Michigan), MI + Saginaw, Bay City, and Midland, USA
Hi, my name is Arlene. I live in the Tri Cities of Michigan, which is Saginaw, Bay City, and Midland. I have always had a love for massage ever since I was in sixth grade when my volleyball coach told the team to form a train and give the person in front of us a shoulder rub.
This went on through high school and when I was in the Army National Guard as a combat medic, my friend said, “Arlene, you give everyone back rubs all of the time and I can tell that you love doing it, why don’t you go to school and make it your profession?”
I have been a certified massage therapist for eighteen years now and still loving it! I received my certification through the Chicago School of Massage Therapy in Chicago, IL. I also took advanced courses in NMT (Neuro Muscular Therapy) II, III, at the Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy in Ann Arbor, MI. Other trainings that I have had includes Spa Treatments, GX-99 Endermatherapy, and a bodywork called Flecjion Therapy. Flecjion Therapy is very effective in aligning people, especially people who have leg length discrepancy, a major cause of lower back pain. Every massage treatment that I do is different. I personalize it to the person’s needs using my great palpatory skills and my innate, gifted ability to give a healing massage.
My musical taste varies. I love all types of music and I have a background as an electronic DJ. I do music mixes using Pro Tools and I have released three CDs and currently working on the fourth CD. This is how I got introduced to Dr. Dot. One of my friends on My Space told me to check out Dr. Dot’s page since she knew that I am also a massage therapist. I read through her page and thought to myself, “Wow, that’s incredible, to be able to do what you love and be able to work on famous musicians!”
I noticed that she had assistants and I e-mailed Dr. Dot and inquired about how I could be one. I contacted one of her assistants in Detroit and gave her a massage for my audition and she said that I did a fantastic job! I got hired on and I am proud to say that I am ecstatic to be part of Dr. Dot’s elite team of certified massage therapists. It’s great to be on a team of the best of the best! I am looking forward to giving you one of the best massages of your life, as the majority of my clients have told me. I am available for tours.

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.
