Erica in Denver (High Rockies), CO + Aspen, Boulder, Steamboat Springs, USA
From early on, I knew music was in my blood.
Being a part of the crew that makes sure the show goes on has been my life from the age of 16.
I began working in studios and managing bands, running FOH by 19, and spent subsequent time on and off the road in every facet of the game. I am a Lifer. The power of music and frequency to heal is one I could not ignore.
It opened me up to my TRUE calling. Hands-on bodywork and muscle manipulation, affecting the human frequency and performance levels. This is my art, and my way of bringing the music to life. <3
During massage school, I focused my practical treatment population project on musicians (of course). This work emphasized the need and importance of bodywork to sustain/enhance performance, and career longevity. You are instruments as well as professional athletes, make no mistake.
Fine tuning is key. Having done many hours of advanced training with session players and an MLS team, my skill set has a beautiful depth.
I have been blessed to work all over the world with everyone from Musicians, NBA, NFL, NHL, and MLS players, to movie and TV stars, yogis, in the delivery room during childbirth, and with cancer & hospice patients. My practice has now landed in the High Rockies of Colorado; Steamboat Springs. In this space I work with Olympians, at a 5 star hot springs hide-away, and I practice herbalism. My touch is intuitive, effective, and works with the natural rhythms and frequencies of the human body. “Gentle yet assertive.”
An integrative, 3D body worker, my focus accompanies the Central Nervous System. I see the human body as a series of open and closed circuits. The goal is to tear down adhesions, freeing the voltage to create effortless flow through the system. I guess you could say I am a low-frequency engineer…and I am very passionate about this work..
With over 2000 hours in training and 11 years in practice,
My modalities include:
-Muscle Energy Technique
-Manual Ligament Therapy
- Active Release Technique
-Pre/Post Event Massage
-Pre/Post Natal Massage
-Jin Shin Do
-Specific Treatment Massage (i.e. degenerative conditions, neuritis/neuralgia, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Whiplash (for some of you heavier rockers out there...haha), and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome to name a few)
I am honored to be a part of the Dr. Dot team, and honored to work with every single one of you.
*I am available for tours or session breaks.*
* I am also an herbalist. Request I bring my kit, if needed.*
Look forward to working with you, and see ya down the road!
FYI Danielle in Salt Lake City was amazing, she worked on my whole crew and band and everyone loved her.

“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.
