Hi, my name is Kristin and I'm from Dayton, OH.
After graduating (top5) from SHI Integrated Medical Massage and Acupuncture School in April 2006, I passed the state medical boards to receive my license on my first try.
My office is in Beavercreek, but am able to travel to appointments. I have been trained in and am competent to practice all of the following: Chair Massage, CranioSacral Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Muscle Energy Technique, Myofascial Release, Sports Massage, Swedish Massage, Therapeutic Massage, TMJ Dysfunction Therapy, and Trigger Point Therapy.
I've pretty much always been good at massage, I've been working on my family since I was little, and I've always just wanted to help people. I started out as a Psychology Major at the Ohio State University (GO BUCKS!) but decided Psychology wasn't the path for me. So, while working at an electronics store - running the music department because I LOVE music - I put myself through massage school and loved every minute of it. I had finally found my calling! Now I get to put my two passions together and have my ideal job.
In school, we had to put together a marketing plan, and mine focused on working on musicians. I used articles I found about Dr. Dot and information from her website for my project, and knew when I was done with school that I would be trying out for her team...and HERE I AM!
I am honored to be a part of her team, and I will work hard to keep making her proud of us. I have many very satisfied clients, and I'm looking forward to making you a part of that clientel.
So, if you are in need of some healing, and are in the Columbus or Dayton areas...give Dot a call, and I'll be right over!

She also said she worked up a sweat while mashing out me crunchies. It was bliss .. Both truly contributed to my having excellent shows immediately after treatment.”

“To Whom It May Concern:
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.

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 ;)
