Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Dorothy is incredible. Her therapy has helped me to get back to the activities I love again pain free. She also provided me with really great preventative stretches that have been very effective.

    I had an injury to my leg that has kept me from running for 5 months. I am an avid runner. I tried the physician route first and found no relief or answers except that there did not appear to be anything structurally wrong. I was attracted to this particular place because she is a runner. She understood what I was talking about where I was coming from. I have never had a deep tissue massage before and it was not without pain. But I noticed an immediate improvement and am looking foreward to getting back into tge full swing of running again. I highly recommend her.

  • Dorothy is extremely skilled in techniques to address specific problem areas. With her massage therapy, I was able to avoid going to the doctor for medical treatment.

    Dorothy does a great job getting deep into the muscle.

  • Dorothy is awesome! She is very knowledgeable about sports related injuries and offers good advice for recovery tools and techniques to be used between sessions.

    Very professional on all counts

  • Dorothy is very skilled and professional. She is knowledgeable and works with her clients to target (trigger points) and relieve issues that may be hampering their recovery process. I highly recommend her services.

    Therapeutic and relaxing, the correct balance.

  • Dorothy was fantastic! She really tailored the massage to how my body felt and what it needed.

    I fell while biking last summer and had gone to chiropractors and physical therapy many, many times. My primary care doctor recently suggested that I try Rapid Recovery sports massage. For the first time in over a year, I woke up without back pain. I was amazed and so thankful to have found Dorothy!

Nothing but 5 stars for Dorothy and Rapid Recovery Sports Massage. She keeps me on my bike, training and racing, as well as working out the kinks that I acquire as a result of working at a computer screen 95% of my workday. There is not a spot on my physical being that does not need Dorothy's skilled touch when I go to see her. Her "table-side" manner is fantastic too. She instinctively knows when I am seeking conversation or when I just want to "sink into her table". :-)

Dorothy is a true therapeutic massage professional. She will quite literally release fascia that causes pain and muscle spasm. If I go more than 8 weeks or so without seeing her, I have trouble turning my head, my shoulders hurt--as well as my calves and feet. This last time Dorothy worked everything out that had been causing me trouble since I started back teaching. This is not a frou frou massage, but one that gets results, especially if you're an athlete or a very active person with lots of standing and walking during your day. Highly recommend!!!!

I finally found Dorothy at Rapid Recovery and since coming to her, I have had more days pain free than I have had in the past 5 years. I finally found the right person and approach to getting back to running and other activities that have been more and painful in recent years. Dorothy is definitely the massage therapist I would recommend for anyone recovering from or proactively working to avoid sport related injuries.

I've been seeing Dorothy regularly for nearly two years. As a long distance runner, I have found Dorothy's massage technique contributory to greatly reducing or eliminating injuries. She understands the physiology of a runner's body, as she is an ultra runner herself, and can address issues even before I'm aware of them! Dorothy is genuine, patient, and is a good listener. All in all, she's an invaluable part of my running success!

I have been seeing Dorothy for a little over a year. I initially sought her out in the hopes of resolving several issues (chronic pain in the muscles of my left shoulder blade and left SI joint). Dorothy listened and plied her trade; pain gone! After a serious cycling accident, Dorothy was instrumental in the final stages of my recovery and getting me back on the bike. I continue to see Dorothy on a monthly basis for "general maintenance". As an active person who does not like to be slowed down by injury and does not like the idea of surgery as a fix, Dorothy has been the perfect answer! She has a gift; a unique insight into the human body and a great sense of intuition to which she heeds. She has built upon these gifts to become a true master massage therapist. On top of that, she is genuine; she cares about her clients and strives to ensure they are receiving the best care she has to offer. Dorothy can read a person and their mood. If you wish to be quite while she works, she respects that. If you wish to chat, she will happily join in. Dorothy's knowledge and skill does not become stale either. She continues building upon her skill set through on-going professional education. Thank you Dorothy !

I've been seeing Dorothy for almost two years now. I originally went to her because I had been experiencing constant pain and limited mobility in my shoulder for years. In the first session, she located the trigger points and worked out my "kinks." No more pain, and I continue to have full range of motion. More recently, I had been experiencing debilitating headaches after a cycling crash; my physician had recommended NSAIDs, which were not helping. Dorothy immediately identified the problem in my neck, and I am thankfully now headache-free (and medication-free). I continue to see her at least monthly to keep my muscles and tendons healthy and injury-free. Thanks, Dorothy -- you continue to work miracles!
