My name is Lars, I've been working as a professional masseur since January 2009 after retaining my license with the European Massage Academy in Stockholm, Sweden.
I have always been into sports from a young age, starting with basketball and went onto handball which I later also coached, so training and the body have always been a great interest. I found massage fascinating and interesting and found I have a talent for it, so I decided to follow that path after giving up my own chauffeur company and here I am!
Back home I had my own successful business and have helped many with their ailments ranging from headaches, neck pains, back pains etc to just a relaxing massage after a days work. I also worked as head masseur with our local hockey team. My other great passion in life is music! I have been to hundreds of gigs over the years, I have an impressive CD collection and have done some DJ work for fun as I love music so much. So working for Dr. Dot is just the best combination in the world for me: massage and music, can it get any better than that?
Here are the areas I work in:
Sitting down massage
Advanced deep massage (Finnish massage)
Anatomy & physiology
Acute injury treatment
Work injury treatment
Head- and face massage
I am regarded as a friendly, quiet, hard working, respectful person with a calm nature. I am flexible, easy to reach and I don’t mind driving distances or working crazy hours. I have no problem in following instructions and am eager to finish my work with a satisfied customer. Making you feel good is very important to me!
I look forward to hearing from you!
“I had the pleasure of receiving a massage from Lars in Philly. I must say, he was by far the best of all the Dr Dot massage therapists that I have had the pleasure of hiring. His knowledge of musculature and how to release tension is nothing short of amazing. Before the massage I was feeling tight, under the weather, and tired. Afterwards, I was feeling wonderful and ready to perform for that nights show. He really knows his craft well, and attentive demeanor towards his clients comfortability was top notch. I would have easily paid 3 times what I did for a massage of that caliber and professionalism. I commend you Dr Dot for sending Lars our way and I look forward to working with him again.”
Micah Tolentino (Justin Bieber Band Singer)

“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.
