Hi, it's Pirkka from Helsinki Finland. Before my career in massage I did physical jobs such as construction and wrecking crew jobs, while my plan was to study languages in university. Still, I guess I knew my heart was never really into that sort of studies, so I kept my eyes open. Luckily I found massaging, and while studying swedish and sports massage and gym instructing I found my calling.
I've been a professional masseur for about six years now, my speciality is sports / deep tissue massage and swedish massage. My studies have also taken me into Thailand where I've studied traditional thai massage and thai foot massage.
My lifelong passion has also been rock and punk music and going to gigs, so I was extremely excited to join Dr. Dot's team!
