Steve Dozois

Director of Massage Therapy/Licensed Massage Therapist

Steve knows quite a bit about aches and pains associated with working in today's offices! It's actually a specialty of his since spending eight years in the office interiors industry, focusing on office ergonomics. Steve understands how people work at their desk, how they SHOULD work at their desk, what their common complaints are, and how to address them. Steve has been certified and licensed for Massage Therapy in Massachusetts since 2009 with a primary focus on overall health and wellness, and an interest in Sports Massage. After tearing his ACL in 2011, having surgery to reconstruct it, and subsequently going through physical therapy, Steve gained a renewed interest in Sports Massage. Steve also earned a B.A. in History from UMASS/Amherst. He spent more than a decade in corporate business-to-business sales but never felt as accomplished or rewarded as when he gave his first professional massage.

Rachael Zaidel

Licensed Massage Therapist

Rachael is a licensed massage therapist who works with individuals looking to improve their overall well-being through the influential touch of deep tissue and Swedish massage. Rachael believes that massage can change anyone’s outlook on how they can feel in their own bodies. She states, “Some people forget how good they can actually feel. Everyday life takes a toll on the body. Just stress alone is a huge factor and everyone has the potential to benefit from massage both physically and mentally”. She graduated from Salter College in West Boylston with high honors and is certified in deep tissue, Swedish, and hot stone massage. Rachael enjoys horseback riding, nature walks, gardening, and has recently picked up guitar. She also studied studio art at Framingham State University and now enjoys creating in a different way. She says, “Massage is an art form that can change your life”. According to the American Massage Therapy Association, when massaged regularly active individuals can observe improved performance, reduced pain, prevent injury, encourage focus and shorten recovery time. Rachael is currently attending QCC to broaden her horizons in the health industry. She continues to seek new and exciting opportunities to build on her knowledge and talents. She states, “I am so excited to work at Worcester Fitness! I’m looking forward to meeting many new people and I can’t wait to show them what I can do!”

Christopher is well-versed in using his body as his most important tool. As a martial artist for nearly three decades, he is familiar with the aches, pains, and injuries that go along with sports and competition.

In that time he has been privileged to work with everyone from minutes-old infants to those in hospice care.

Still University and holds bachelor’s degrees in English Literature and Psychology from the University of Maine.
