Kirill’s work as a therapist provides a service that clients have made a regular part of their health and self care routine. His style of massage has developed over the years by using an evidence based approach, with focus on the foundational principles of neuromuscular, myofascial and performance oriented theories. 

Deep Tissue

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.

Myofacial Release

Myofascial Release is a safe and effective hands-on technique that involves applying sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to help alleviate discomfort and restore range of 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) Therapy

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.

Postural Assessment

The body posture  is an area of interest for many massage therapists and bodyworkers seeking to determine potential relations between body asymmetry and unilateral load accumulation, as well as specific injuries. Postural assessment as part of the screening process is relevant as there is evidence of correlations between injury and posture. Abnormal postures can influence muscle function, at times negatively. Assessments will be done with visual observation, which requires no tools.
