Hello, my name is Essi and I come from Helsinki Finland. When I was young I always envied people who knew what they wanted to be when they grew old… I had no idea.
As I did not know what I wanted I moved to the Swiss mountains, to a ski town called Verbier, and lived as a ski bum for few years. Being inspired by the multi cultural environment I wanted to find a more serious way to stay so I took a massage course hoping to find stable work there. But little did I know that this work would become so much more than only a way to make money. It became my thing.
I graduated as a massage therapist 1999. Few years working and doing an apprentice with a local Healer woman opened my eyes for a whole new world. I started to be passionate about work and the human being. In 2002 I started my studies of osteopathy from which I graduated spring 2007.
Today I am a qualified osteopath and massage therapist and just loving what I do. With all the treatments that I do my aim is to heal and to give a good feeling. After living ten years in different countries I returned home to Helsinki where I continue meeting interesting people and learning about life.
This is one of the many reasons Dr Dot’s offer to work for her was an opportunity that I just couldn’t pass.

“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.
