As massage therapists, we constantly look for new ways to grow our business and broaden our areas of expertise. Russian Sports Massage is one modality that provides both.
Russian Sports Massage is the oldest and perhaps most advanced system of sports massage in the world. In the former Soviet Union, it was regarded as an integral part of sports training and competition and contributed greatly to the overwhelming dominance of that nation’s athletes at the Olympic Games over several decades, when massage therapists shared the spotlight with sports-medicine doctors and coaches. In fact, massage therapists were regarded so highly that they received a medal of achievement from the government along with the athletes with whom they were working.
Training with Oleg will enhance your practice by assisting you to retain clients, long-term, as well as create healing with one-time clients, through use of specific body mechanics and techniques.
