Hi my name is Dawn and I have been practicing massage since 2000. I grew up in the Midwest and now happily call Portland, Oregon home. I was drawn to massage therapy after receiving massage and chiropractic following a car accident ten years ago. Massage healed my chronic pain and now I continue to pass the massage and healing experience on to others.
I help a wide range of people, from professional athletes, business travelers, actors, traveling and local musicians... and everyone in-between. Being married to a guitar teacher/musician, I am familiar with the aches and pains that can occur when dedication and passion to playing music is pursued daily. I specialize in relieving migraines, carpal tunnel, tendonitis and chronic neck and back pain.
I have worked for the top spas in Portland, including Aequis Spa Retreat and Nirvana Day Spa, as well as with chiropractors. I now have my own business and will travel to your home, hotel, office or venue.
I specialize in Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue, Swedish/Relaxation, Sports massage, Hot Stone massage, Pregnancy massage, Chair massage, Injury Rehabilitation as well as Aromatherapy and Spa Treatments. I am also a certified nutritional consultant. I am excited and honored to be part of Dr. Dotís exclusive team to give YOU the best of the best in massage!
