Hello I´m Raquel.
How did I get here? I´ve always suffered from back and neck pains. I tried everything and nothing really worked. I was getting awful side effects from muscle relaxants when I decided to get a Shiatsu massage. I noticed that it not only would make pain go away right after the session but also by keeping it on my routine, would make the pain much lighter to the point it was no longer an issue on my life! That was when I decide to learn it!
I chose the technique that was the most effective for me, the SHIATSU (SHUNKAN TYOSHIN KA). This massage was developed by a Japanese monk and thought to my teacher Mariko. I learned with her and was hired from her to work in several companies such as Unilever, BM&F, gyms (Academia Competition) , and events like marathons. It has been great to see that the results I got from this massage I am now able to offer to other people! I am a very quiet, calm and discrete person that works with firm hands and positive vibrations!
I am very glad to be part of DR.DOT team! I think this concept of having a international team of massage therapists is amazing! Besides, I have a huge respect for musicians and everybody that works on this business because I truly believe that a few seconds of a song can be life changing!

“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.
