Tobe has 32 years of clinical experience in manual therapy for pain or dysfunction in muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.

He graduated from the Institute of Alternative Medicine, Stockholm, Sweden in 1984 with a degree in acupuncture and holistic physio therapy. Since graduation he has spent three decades specializing in trigger point therapy, acupressure, Ancient Chinese philosophy, kinesiology and sports medicine.

In 1985 he immigrated to the United States with only $400 in his pocket. Tobe settled in the San Francisco Bay area, California, where he started his practice as a Body Worker and Kinesiologist.

In 1994 Tobe opened his own practice inside Club Sport in Pleasanton, California.
His extensive work with professional and recreational athletes led to the development of HansOn Muscle Therapy. HMT is a new and holistic approach to alternative medicine that provides instant results in injury rehabilitation, prevention and performance enhancement.

In 2007 Tobe started to teach his HTM techniques to professional healthcare providers.

In 2012 and 2013 he conducted continual education training in HMT for Stanford University’s Athletic Training and Physical Therapy department.

His services are frequently sought after by professional athletes from NFL, MLB, PGA, mixed martial arts and triathlons, as well as college and recreational athletes. He is currently part of the San Jose Sharks NHL medical staff.

Since 1992, Tobe has had over 90,000 patient visits and currently has a four-week waiting list for an appointment. He grew his practice by word of mouth without any advertising, yellow page ads, or even a phone directory listing.

Orthopedic surgeons, family doctors, chiropractors, dentists, athletic trainers, personal trainers, acupuncturists and massage therapists refer patients to him on a daily basis.

Tobe’s unique use of manual muscle testing provides feedback that assures custom therapy for each individual and every injury. His hands-on work is followed by a long record of success and gives instant relief and functional improvement in muscles/joint pain syndrome and sports injuries.

In his book "The Four Seasons Way of Life”, Tobe shares a modern approach of ancient Eastern wisdom that will make us readers realize that health, peace of mind, success, and happiness is in our own hands.
