Vlad has followed an interesting journey to where he is now as a remedial massage therapist. He grew up in Russia and worked as a remedial massage therapist during his time studying medicine. An opportunity took him to Israel where he continued in the medical field by studying optometry. It was in this role he worked for 14 years. He and his family have since moved to Melbourne where Vlad furthered his initial massage training by completing a Diploma of Remedial Massage with RMIT University, fine tuning his skills in sports, remedial and relaxation massage.
It is this passion for helping others, and his interest in how the body moves and works, that has brought Vladimir back to massage. Through his 20+ years of experience in health and wellbeing, Vlad has always been passionate about tapping into his patients and clients’ needs, and finding the ultimate solution for them. His unique methods of treatment revolve around tracking the cause behind any discomfort or medical issue a client may be experiencing. Vlad is always looking to further his education and has enjoyed helping and ever-growing base of grateful patients.
Prior to Vlad’s studies in medicine and health, he was trained as a classical ballet dancer at Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow. This training in movement and form, has strengthened his understanding of the needs of athletic bodies along with how to alleviate aches, pains and general fatigue.
