About Me

I’m a Professional massage therapist, specialized at completely relaxing and healing full-body massage. My areas of expertise include deep tissue, Swedish, sports, Shiatsu, Thai massage, Biodynamic Bodywork (Reiki), scrub services. My substantial experience comprises practicing in major spas and massage salons of New York city and overseas.

I was born in 1988 in Bergen, Norway. When I was 7 y.o. my parents moved to Russia, Krasnoyarsk. First I started being interested in massage at the age of 14 y.o. From 18 to 22 y.o. I went to Japan for profound learning of Eastern massage practices. 

As for my background education, I studied engineering, linguistics, but finally stopped at and chose massage activity as the main focus.


I also play the piano since I was 9 years old, that’s why my hands are very flexible and strong. For me, massage is a kind of art, and the therapist is an artist, who is able to create a special atmosphere and who knows how to dip the Person in it during the session.

Under my hands people completely forget about stress from daily life and totally dip into ultimate state of peace and well-being. For each individual client I choose different approach in healing, depending on what specifically should be cured and what will be the best for Your body. I perform a great variety of techniques, mixture of different styles, stretching...

I will work on Your entire body from head to toes, carefully warming up and kneading the muscles. I’m really good at neck, shoulders area, back, legs, calves…For work I use only natural products that will help to revitalize and hydrate your skin. Just feel free to relax and receive an efficient massage therapy combined with positive energy.Besides traditional massage I’m proficient in Biodynamic Bodywork. This therapy can successfully compliment traditional massage. It allows to set up the right balance of energy flow, improve your general physical and mental health. it also works with the energetic forces in the Body and with person’s inherent resources for change and healing. Challenges to health such as injury, illness, or trauma are held in the energy dynamics of the body along with the physical structure. The heart of this therapy is how to return the body to a greater relationship to the inherent health.

Massage

Massage therapy is a type of treatment in which a trained and certified medical professional manipulates the soft tissues of Your body — muscle, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and skin — using varying degrees of pressure and movement.

Generally, massage is delivered to improve the flow of blood and lymph (fluid in lymph glands, part of immune system), to reduce muscular tension or flaccidity, to affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation, and to enhance tissue healing. Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.

Therapeutic massage may be recommended for people in the following situations:​

  • relieving muscle spasms

  • increasing joint and limb flexibility and range of motion

  • increasing ease and efficiency of movement

  • relieving points of tension and overall stress; inducing relaxation

  • promoting deeper and easier breathing

  • improving blood circulation and movement of lymph

  • relieving tension-related headaches and eyestrain, etc.

Reiki

I am an expert and practitioner in Reiki (Energy Balancing) Massage.    

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around You. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many people have reports miraculous results after the treatment.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Whilst prescribed medication often provides relief from our pain or problems, they may not solve the issues causing those problems.  Reiki treatments can create positive changes in body, mind and spirit, as it restores balance to the body, enabling it to heal itself.

Reiki treatments create positive changes in body, mind and spirit, as this wonderful energy works to restore balance, enabling healing to take place.

You may feel heat or tingling from my hands. Sometimes people see colours or feel they are floating, or very heavy.  Treatments vary, bringing a different experience each time as the cumulative effect of Reiki allows the body’s health to improve.

Conditions that benefit from Reiki include:

:: Stress and Tension

:: Fatigue                                                                                       

:: Insomnia

:: Anger, Grief, Anxiety or Depression

:: Muscular aches and pains

:: Back pain

 

Reiki can also help you to:

:: Deal better with difficult situations

:: Feel more positive and confident

:: Remove some of the ‘clutter’ from your life

:: Enjoy a better quality of life

Reiki is a non-invasive, gentle therapy.  It is safe to use on anyone of any age.

You will benefit from a one-off Reiki treatment, which will bring a sense of peace and calm and you will feel some physical improvement too.  However, the effects of Reiki are cumulative so the best results come through having a course of treatments, maybe 4-6 sessions at regular intervals.
