I graduated from the Medical University of St. Petersburg and subsequently worked in an Intensive Care Unit. I developed a keen interest in complementary therapies and the holistic approach to human health after suffering my own spinal injury in 2003.
To avoid surgical intervention, I turned to acupuncture, myofascial release and craniosacral therapy and discovered these were the only therapies that helped regain my mobility allowing me to return to normal daily life.
I began studying craniosacral therapy in 2004 at the Upledger Institute UK, with further studies in the United States, where I also studied myofascial release. I complemented these therapies with an orthopaedic acupuncture diploma from the College of Chinese Medicine in London, with further studies of cupping therapy, deep tissue massage and homeopathic biopuncture.
More recently, I have become involved in the research of orthopaedic acupuncture and the presentation of seminars hosted by the Medical University of St. Pertersburg.
My specialist interests are: musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, neurological conditions, neuralgia, nerve damage, inflammation, digestive complaints, headaches and anxiety.
I am registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and Federation of Holistic Therapies (FHC).
