My name is Heather. I am a recent graduate of the Lakeside school of Massage Therapy in Madison, WI. I also studied with the East West Healing Arts Institute to add some additional eastern modalities to my massage technique. I was born and raised in Wisconsin, but have also spent quite a bit of time outside of my home state. Growing up I spent my summers in Mexico with my grandparents.
My eventual migration to massage therapy started with an interest in anatomy. I spent several years in school trying to decide between psychology and physiology, eventually settling with the latter. After several years working with various demographics in a caretaker capacity I found that, while I was still very interested in the body itself, that particular line of work was not for me. I decided to follow a path that involved healing touch and more non traditional treatment options and have found myself very happy with that choice.
I am very excited to have joined Dr. Dot's team and have always had a great love of, if not talent with, music. When I am not working as a Massage Therapist I am also employed as a karaoke DJ for a local establishment on a weekly basis. I look forward to working with the variety of people that book with Dr. Dot and getting to combine two of my favorite things, massage and music, in the process!

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!

She took care of the band-members who all were left amazed and startled by her touch ;)

“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.
Manager – The Weepies” Brett, Manager – The Weepies
Yet again successful - your Dotbots were perfectly pleasant to work with!
