Hi, my name is Claudia and I am very happy to be part of the Dr. Dot team as it is a great opportunity to link massage with my passion and love for music. I am Italian but I have been living in London for many years. I came first in the UK to work in a record company as I am myself a musician.
I've always been interested in health and fitness and believe in the therapeutic power of massage. While still working in the hectic Music Industry I qualified first in Classic Swedish Massage and few years after I left the record company to pursuit a full time career as a massage therapist. My interest in being able to treat soft tissue injuries led me to study sport and remedial massage and to qualify in Sports Massage, ITEC Level 4.
I'm also qualified in Thai Yoga Massage, a combination of gentle stretches, passive Hatha Yoga and acupressure to improve flexibility of joints and restoring energy,
Every massage I give is tailored to the client and I will often incorporate various Soft-Tissues techniques such as MET (Muscle Energy Techniques) or STR (Soft Tissue Release), passive stretches.
These can help to release tension in the muscles and increase joints mobility, prevent and treat injuries, sprains & strains, correct poor posture and musculoskeletal imbalances.
I'm also trained in Thai Foot Massage, Chair Massage, Indian Head Massage. I love my job and it is highly rewarding to be able to make people feel better and relaxed. I look forward to working with you!

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 ;)

“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.
