Shanna in Manhattan, NY + Northern NJ, Newark, USA
Hi there! My name is Shanna, and I am originally from New Mexico. I've lived and worked in the NYC, NJ, Long Island and Conn market since 2002. As a graduate of The Swedish Institute I have been a professional LMT since 2008.
Healing others through massage has been a passion of mine for most of my life. Using Swedish deep tissue, Shiatsu, trigger points, and energy work as the back bone of my sessions, I have been able to meet the needs of a wide variety of clients. Dancers, singers, musicians, bartenders, chiropractors, business professionals...etc.
I have a special place in my heart for artists and performers having grown up in a family of professional musicians, and I truly enjoy bringing healing to that community. Additionally, I have experience in sports injury, prenatal, lymph drainage and cancer patient recovery care as well.
I enjoy being a part of the Dr. Dot family, and help healing others in mind, body, and soul.

“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.
