Kirill’s custom-tailored appointments provide a service that many clients have made a regular part of their health and well-being. Kirill’s style of massage has developed over the years by using an evidence based approach, with focus on the foundational principles of neuromuscular, myofascial and sports-oriented theories.
Deep tissue massage is best for giving attention to certain painful, stiff “trouble spots” in your body. It includes slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. Though at times less rhythmic than other types of massage, deep tissue massage can be quite therapeutic — relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries, such as back sprain or neck stiffness.
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load applied slowly will allow a fascia to elongate.
Trigger Point (Neuromuscular) Theory
Neuromuscular therapy is a form of soft tissue manipulation that aims to treat underlying causes of chronic pain involving the muscular and nervous systems. This medically-oriented form of massage addresses trigger points (tender muscles points), circulation, nerve compression, postural issues, and bio-mechanical problems that can be caused by repetitive movement injuries.
