I am a Registered Massage Therapist with over 14 years of extensive experience in manual therapy. I am also a Certified Reflexologist and have taken many other courses to augment my skills under the umbrella of Massage Therapy.  

I specialize in a variety of treatments, however the ones I use most are joint mobilization, trigger point release and deep tissue work. I have been practicing these techniques for over a decade and have developed some of my own unique approaches to them.  

I enjoy every aspect of my work but derive special satisfaction from the clients that challenge my abilities, both intellectually and physically. Each success teaches me something about how to improve my techniques and bring them forward into subsequent treatments.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Julie on May 20
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.

Dora took my existing conditions very seriously and was able to really help mitigate the discomfort.

Wonderful massage, very accurate for the pressure requested, professional and friendly. Have tried many RMT's and although it has taken me a while to find one my search is over :) I will be returning for sure. Wonderful suggestions for stretches I can do at home to compliment work done during session. Dora knew just where to focus and all the sore spots. Thank you.

Dora was very professional and knew where to concentrate on. Great firm pressure throughout the massage but still very relaxing.
