Laura in Richmond (Central Virginia), VA + Charlottesville, Roanoke, Lynchburg, USA
Hello All! My name is Laura.
I am a state and nationally certified Massage Therapist. I studied at the Cayce/Reilly School of Massotherapy, where I learned the arts of tactile and energetic healing and bodywork. My specialties include Swedish, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Acupressure, Aromatherapy, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, and Energy Healing.
My massage is slow and strong, and I take great care in putting my clients at ease. It is my purpose to help you achieve your highest good while in my hands.
I love giving massage. I began rubbing feet and walking on backs at age 4, the same year Billy Idol and David Bowie began my ongoing affection for all things musical. I’ve been in love with music and the human experience ever since. I enjoy working with and connecting with people from all walks of life.
I find my happiness in good music, good company, and the great outdoors. When I’m not massaging, I’m going to shows, cooking, walking the beach, dancing, laughing, and enjoying time with my family.
I’m truly thankful for this opportunity to work for Dr. Dot as a way to give back to the music community. I’d be happy to have you at my table.
Peace, Love, and Good Health

“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.
