Melanie in Philadelphia (Southern, NJ / Philly), NJ + Atlantic City, NJ, USA
Hi, My name is Melanie and I am an LMT. I graduated from NMTI at the end of 2012. I had formally worked in Accounting & Finance for years before getting laid off, and changing careers.
I'm soo glad I did! Becoming an LMT has been the best move for me, as I am a people person, and I love helping people feel their best.
I also have a love for music, with singing and writing in my background; working with the Dr. Dot team is a win win opportunity.
With my therapeutic touch, and attention to the concern of my clients, I deliver amazing results...(so I've been told). With that, I cater to a more deeper tissue massage approach, with stretching (as desired or needed), but have no problem administering the medium to light 'feather' touch if requested/needed.
I practice, Therapeutic/Deep Tissue, Swedish, Sports, Reflexology, Pre Natal, Hot Stone, some Myofascial Release, chair, and Geriatric massage.
I've worked at spas, massage studios, for and with chiropractors. I've also worked sporting events, and I look forward in working with you!

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)
“Lars (Stockholm Dotbot) took care of the band-members and left all in awe!
He provided a table, towels etc which made it very easy to work with.
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!
She took care of the band-members who all were left amazed and startled by her touch ;)
Thanks Romana, def will hit you up next time round.
