Shanna in Manhattan, NY + Northern NJ, Newark, USA
Hi there! My name is Shanna, and I am originally from New Mexico. I've lived and worked in the NYC, NJ, Long Island and Conn market since 2002. As a graduate of The Swedish Institute I have been a professional LMT since 2008.
Healing others through massage has been a passion of mine for most of my life. Using Swedish deep tissue, Shiatsu, trigger points, and energy work as the back bone of my sessions, I have been able to meet the needs of a wide variety of clients. Dancers, singers, musicians, bartenders, chiropractors, business professionals...etc.
I have a special place in my heart for artists and performers having grown up in a family of professional musicians, and I truly enjoy bringing healing to that community. Additionally, I have experience in sports injury, prenatal, lymph drainage and cancer patient recovery care as well.
I enjoy being a part of the Dr. Dot family, and help healing others in mind, body, and soul.

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!
