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)
"Lars did a great job. My back is so much better now. He really understood the consequence of being in a tour bus without being able to stand up right. I took a walk right after and it really is amazing what he can do in such short time!

I have been using Dr. Dots "DotBots" for years. Her girls have seen many of the artists and crew that I have TM/PM'd for. Her girls are always on time, friendly, and professional.

“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.

He provided a table, towels etc which made it very easy to work with.
Very on point and definitely made for an amazing show at night - thank you again!
Romi (Prague Dotbot) came by, arrived early, was very well prepped (had her own table, scented candles, oils, towels) and had the brightest smile we'd seen in days!
She took care of the band-members who all were left amazed and startled by her touch ;)
