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!
Production Manager, Stage Manager, Rigger, Monitor Engineer & More!
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. You need to make time and room on your tour for Dr. Dot's services. By far the best in the business.” Clay Hutson Production Manager (Guns and Roses, Alice in Chains, Staind)
“"They were very pleased, excellent job. Thanks again"” Empire of the Sun TM Tim

Talked about it all evening.

“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.
