Orthopaedic Sports Massage
From an early age I’ve had a very keen interest in Complementary Therapies and health-related topics – I grew up in Lithuania, in the family where the father was a T’ai chi ch’uan practitioner (a ‘soft’ Chinese martial art and a powerful holistic health maintaining system), and the mother was a Massage Therapist who was often showing and explaining some massage techniques to me. As a child I used to ‘stroll’ thorough the pages of some books we had in our house – my favourite was ‘The Eastern Reflexotherapy’ since it had the best pictures in it!
After graduating from school and for the most of my early 20’s I’ve been travelling the world and worked occasionally to supply my travel expenses, but my life-long interest in Oriental martial arts and therapies was driving me back to the idea of going to study and making my hobby into my profession.
The turning point was in 2006 when I decided to go on to study the Neuromuscular Physical Therapy under the leading Irish expert in the field John Sharkey. The insights into human anatomy and physiology, and dysfunction and pain patterns given to me by John have set me on the path of continuous learning ever since, which concluded in me receiving qualifications in a variety of health-related fields including Sports Therapy, Holistic Therapy, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Personal Training, Pilates and Nutrition. Becoming a Massage practitioner has changed my life fundamentally , I’ve met and worked with loads of interesting people from all walks of life and have developed very interesting and fulfilling friendships that guided and ‘moulded’ me into who I am today.
One of the ‘highlights’ of my career was working with one of the Dublin GAA clubs as a Match Day Therapist and First Aider. Besides a very valuable experience on immediate judgement of situation and quick solution/decision production, it was also….possibly the most fun experience of my Therapist career so far, as the ratio of the laugh per hour of interaction was unreal!
Health Studies is a life-long process for me (I’m currently in The School of Medicine in Trinity College Dublin), and Massage Therapies are still my life passion and will remain such for a very long time. Being able to relieve pain and provide the solutions for peoples’ ongoing health-related issues I consider the most rewarding aspect of my profession.

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)
NMT is a very effective, gentle and safe therapy targeting primarily the Myofascial Trigger Points (a.k.a.) Pain points, tender spots, etc.) and bodies myokinetic imbalances. The Trigger Points are 'famous' for referring pain and/or changes in sensations to distant sites of the body. The body's myokinetic imbalances (e.g. bad posture), - are the primary cause for the Trigger Points formation. NMT was specifically designed to deal with both by some famous Osteopaths. Can also be very effective in post injury rehabilitation. Applicable to all parts of the body, treats all common problems/injuries with various degree of effectiveness, AND usually is very effective.
Orthopaedic Sports Massage
Orthopaedic Sports Massage (a.k.a. Sports Massage) - invigorating set of techniques dealing with all sorts of pains/tightness/strains/sprains whether associated with injuries or bad habits (eg. incorrect posture sitting at the desk at work), may be 'uncomfortable' at times, but very often brings about immediate relief. I usually use several NMT techniques in each Sports Massage session as well to make the positive effects go longer. Important notice: Sports Massage is actually for the general population, as professional sports people use a lot more than that to maintain their form!
Holistic Massage (in a 'nutshell' is a new improved version of Swedish massage) - aimed primarily on maintaining body in an optimal condition and improves vitality: blood circulation, lymphatic drainage, toxin removal, stress relief, etc. Isn't about dealing with any particular type of injury or site of the body, but more about the 'whole body' approach meaning both person's 'physical' and 'emotional' bodies - their nourishment and strengthening against the everyday stresses, emotional and physical. Very good for immune system strengthening or for speeding up the recovery after most illnesses. I include few Aromatherapy and Reflexology approaches in most of my Holistic treatments as they're complimentary to each other and make the effects last longer.
