Therapist Spotlight – Peter


  1. Did you have any other jobs before doing massage?

– I’ve worked at quite a few different places before I went full time massage therapist, including PE teacher, camping receptionist, lifeguard, caretaker and personal assistant.

  1. What are your hobbies?

– I enjoy sports, nowadays mainly watching sports and not playing that many, except golf. I also like cycling and pub quizzes.

  1. What’s your favourite thing about living in London?

– The ability to do/see/get everything that you would like to do/see. It’s a very vibrant city and I love how diverse it is.

  1. If you could have any sort of pet what would it be?

– A dog probably. I’ve always loved dogs and my wife is very keen on getting one. We’d probably get a Samoyed and call it Loki, like the Norse god.

  1. What’s your family like?

– Typically Swedish, I would say. Very nice people. My two brothers still live in Sweden- one works in insurance and the other in a pharmacy. My parents love coming to visit me in London.

  1. Where/when would you go if you had a time machine?

– If I could safely observe I would go back to the time of the 2nd world war at some place in England/Europe for a while. It’s a part of history that I’ve always been very interested in.

  1. What’s your favourite kind of holiday?

– I’m quite open to every kind of holiday except for an all beach holiday or all-inclusive holiday. If I had to pick one it would be some sort of adventure/hiking/sailing combination.

  1. If you were planning your dream trip, with no time or money constraints, where would you go and what would you do there?

-I’d have a year off and travel the world, way too many places on my bucket list. The funny thing is that the more traveling I do, the bigger the list seems to get though?! 🙂

  1. Tell me something weird about Sweden

-Every summer in August, we have a big tradition of eating a special food called Surströmming, or in English, fermented herring. The fish is kept in a can, which is considered a dangerous weapon by airlines and like bombs, firearms and knives, not allowed to be brought on an airplane.

  1. Tell me a joke

– Ok, here’s a Swedish joke.

Q: How do you sink a Norwegian submarine?

A: Scuba dive down and knock on the door 😉
