My name is Daryl. Like many of Dr. Dot’s assistants, I have made massage and healing therapies my life’s work. I may only be 5 foot 1 but don’t let that fool you… If you need deep work, I’m your girl!
My style of massage tends to be a mix of Eastern and Western modalities, including Swedish, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, Sports, Trigger Point and Myofacial Release work. I am creative and intuitive, always remaining focused on the needs of my clients. I am also certified to do Healing (Hot/Cold) Stone massage and Pre/Post Natal massage.
In addition to my Associate’s degree in Massage Therapy from the Swedish Institute, I hold a Bachelor’s in English from SUNY Buffalo and will be starting a Master’s in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Pacific College, this Fall ‘06.
What got me to Dot? I saw her on TV a couple of years ago and when I heard she was looking for a NYC assistant, I jumped at the chance to be part of her team. It’s important for entertainers to be able to perform their best. Massage can help Keep you less stressed and in peak physical shape in order to rock our world!
In Dr. Dot fashion, I am a true lover of music as well! My favorite concerts will always be Lenny Kravitz ‘92, Phil Collins ’87, the Black Crowes Oct, 29, 2001 @ the Beacon, Metallica summer ‘92, Sting opening for the Dead in Chicago and all the Grateful Dead shows through my years in college.
So now that you’re here in the city that never sleeps, come see me for a session to work out all your kinks! Oh did I mention I give a killer foot massage?

“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.
