About Us

I am a graduate of Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic and have been in practice since 2002. Prior to my massage therapy training I danced in and around Toronto for over 10 years which is where I learned the value and profound impact of bodywork. In addition to my home office/clinic I also offer house calls.

I offer a multitude of disciplines under the umbrella of Massage Therapy including certified reflexology, aromatherapy, thai massage, acupressure, indian scalp massage, trigger point therapy, shiatsu massage, deep tissue work and pregnancy massage. 

I enjoy the challenge of adapting each session to my clients needs on any given day. I develop new techniques as I go this way which keeps me engaged and makes my treatments more effective. My experiences as an educator, clinic...

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Amazing skill.To be perfectly honest. I Understand regarding the new legislation the need for more paperwork but felt like it cut into my massage time which is valuable as well it threw off my enjoyment. Hope you don't mind me saying this

    I loved the connecting about whether or not things felt ok. It really helps build a solid level of trust.

  • I appreciated how Dora explained everything so you knew what to expect and was done kindly and professionally. I liked how she gave options for type of pressure in the massage and explained things thoroughly. The ambiance was warm and friendly and professional.

    I've been a client of Dora's for nearly 10 years, the experience continues to be outstanding.

  • If there was a way to rate Dora more highly, I would do so. She is the consummate professional and so talented as a masseuse. She accommodated us by making a house call and the net result was my entire household seriously blessed out. Thank you again, Dora!

    I always feel like I am in excellent hands with Dora!

  • Dora is an amazing massage therapist. Over the years, I have tried many massage people and she is one of the best. She has great pressure. (A lot of therapists I find not strong enough.) And she is very conscientious and responsive to what issues you might have, so that the session is really tailored to whatever you need.

    Great treatment. Really addressed the pain I was experiencing in my left hip area.

  • Awesome as always. Did the water treatment at night and it already feels lesser puffy than yesterday. I will do it again tonight! Thanks Dora!

Business response:

I totally understand Ursula! Unfortunately, paperwork is a necessary part of every regulated health profession. I try and streamline the process and for most people it's taken care of very quickly but thanks for the feedback! I sent out a notification to everyone about expecting a new form at their next session but perhaps I will remind people about it as well and ask them to come in a bit early. UPDATE: Reminder added to all outgoing messages

I would prefer if lthe curtains had a lining - or the bottom of the window was frosted, allowing light to come in but keeping the view obstructed to the fire escape.

Business response:

Thanks Pam! I'm sorry to hear your experience was less than ideal. I wish you had mentioned something at the time. I have checked the view from outside and the darkness of the curtains prevents anyone from seeing inside the room while allowing some daylight to penetrate. However, I'm happy to look into getting a frosting for the lower windows for added privacy. Cheers, Dora UPDATE: The curtains have been changed!

From the moment I walked in, I could tell I was in good hands. Unlike other health practitioners I've worked with, Dora actually reviewed my intake form in-depth, making sure she had all of the necessary info from me. And from the moment she began the massage, I could tell she had been doing it for years. Her technique was steady and flowing and thorough, and I loved that she was able to custom-fit the pressure to fit my needs. She regularly checked in with me to ask me how I was doing. She was willing to talk when I wanted to, and to allow me to be quiet when I wanted that as well. Her space was warm and serene, with soothing, enjoyable music. And she offered me aromatherapy as part of my massage, with an essential oil of my choice. All in all, I would recommend Dora highly to anyone looking for a massage therapist. Whether you're wanting a more relaxing massage, or therapeutic in nature, I feel Dora could provide you with exactly what you are looking for.

Business response:

Wow Julie!! I'm so glad you enjoyed your experience. Thank you so much for your kind words and taking the time to be so thorough. Much appreciated. Take care!!
