Dorothy Richter, LMT
Hi, my name is Dorothy Richter. I’m the massage therapist at Gateway Family Chiropractic. I’ve been practicing massage for 29 years and believe massage therapy and chiropractic adjustments go hand in hand, each complimenting the other. Massage is my passion and I love working with the amazing doctors to help relieve pain. I am looking forward to meeting you and hopefully being a part of your Gateway experience.
When muscles are loose, adjustments tend to last longer and pain is reduced. I’ve been trained in many modalities including Swedish relaxation, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular, Myofacial Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, CranioSacral Therapy, Lymphatic Massage and Prenatal Massage.
