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. Dot’s exclusive team to give YOU the best of the best in massage!

“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.
