Hejsan! My name is Petra, and I am born and raised in Sweden but lived in USA (mostly California) for 17 years, and what first brought me to California was my love for music. I did work in the music biz for a while, meeting many wonderful people.
After a car accident in 2002, I had to go to a chiropractor and get massage therapy since I had severe pain in my left shoulder and arm. I got completely healed and it struck me how happy all the clients were when they left the clinic, and I thought to myself - that’s what I want to do, I want to have a job that makes people happy! So I took my training in 2003 in California and has worked as a massage therapist ever since. I am working both with private clients and going out to companies.
I strongly believe in the body-mind connection, so I try to see the whole picture when working with my clients, and use a very intuitive style wether the client wants a deep treatment for specific problems or just a relaxing moment. I also work with essential oils, since they can often enhance the healing effects of the massage.
I am also a Yoga teacher and offer private and group classes.
Working with Dr. Dot is the perfect way to combine two of my favourite things - music and helping people!
“Thank you for sending me the contact! Petra was very, very good! All my guys liked the treatment very much and I personally can say that my pain is gone after the treatment.”

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.
