Hello, my name is Astrid. After becoming a registered Nurse I decided to extend my healing abilities by studying massage. I got my Massage diploma in 1991 and ever since I have been kneading and squeezing muscles, working up a sweat while working on bodies and touching souls. Stretching, pulling, pushing, breathing, feeling, ...
My technique of massage is very fluid and intuitive, staying in verbal and nonverbal communication about what is needed and what feels good. Strong or soft - riding the wave of aliveness. I enjoy the body and as I know mine well, I feel connected to others. It is such a gift, to be able to do something good and get responses of pleasure.
When I heard of Dr. Dot, I contacted and massaged her. I heard, that she is very alive and never holds still, so I was worried, when she didn't say anything or move during the massage. I asked, if something went wrong but she said, that she was very relaxed and in heaven. After the audition, she asked me to join her team.
She also massaged me and I enjoyed her very natural and alive style. So I am glad for the opportunity to be seen in her team on this site and would like to treat you when you pass through Berlin with my healing hands.
“Lars (Stockholm Dotbot) took care of the band-members and left all in awe!
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!
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 ;)
Thanks Romana, def will hit you up next time round.
