Hello! My name is Cecily and I have been a qualified massage practitioner and body worker since 2004, specializing in deep tissue, remedial and holistic massage.
I am also a Quantum Touch energy healing practitioner and Laughter Yoga leader. I believe it is very important to laugh, spread joy and upliftment!
Having spent years touring and travelling as an actor and street theatre performer I can relate to the stresses and strains, both mental and physical inherent in your profession, be you artist or crew.
Iím here to ease those tensions away and help you recalibrate, re-align and revitalize.
I draw on a wide range of techniques and massage styles ranging from Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, compression, trigger point therapy, fascial release and muscle energy techniques (MET) to Pulsing (highly releasing rhythmic rocking bodywork, known as the Thai Chi of massage), craniosacral style holds, passive stretches and and elements of Shiatsu, amongst others.
For me, a good massage treatment is about depth of connection and engagement just as much as it is about technique. Being able to listen and respond, with awareness and intuition. Like a good jamming or impro session!
In this regard, I donít adhere to any routine, all my treatments are bespoke, tailored to your specific needs on the day Ė if during the treatment you would like the focus of the session to change, or have more time spent on a certain area, then thatís fine, there are no rights or wrongs. Itís all about you and creating the best treatment for optimal results and overall wellbeing.
Iíd like to add that Quantum Touch can be combined seamlessly into a session.
QT is a gentle yet powerful hands on energy healing modality which is best known for realigning the spine, occipital ridge and hips; quickly reducing pain and inflammation and accelerating the bodyís own healing response.
Really wonderful for painful backs, joints, muscles and RSI.
I was introduced to Dr. Dot through another Dot Bot and very good, longstanding friend, thank you Helen from Brighton!
Iím thrilled to be part of Dr. Dotís dedicated team that keeps talented artists and their support on the road.
I look forward to meeting you.

“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.
