About Igor

Igor’s interest in massage therapy first began in Russia in the 80’s, where as a teenager he practiced soccer, swimming, track and field and judo. Between the ages of 12 to 16, while training for Judo 6 days a week, he discovered massage as a self-care technique and healing modality.

Throughout his athletic life and tree planting career in Canada, Igor encountered a number of musculoskeletal injuries ranging from muscle sprains, strains, contusions, spasms and functional scoliosis. He suffered from lower back muscle spasms due to postural muscle imbalances and weaknesses. This led him to learn more about how the body functions and how he could gain physical strength and balance back into his life.

With a passion to create positive well-being in both his and other people’s lives, Igor completed his Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) training at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in 2015 with 3000 hours of clinical practice. Prior to that he trained at the Vancouver School of Bodywork & Massage in 2010, with 700 hours of training.

With over 10 years massage experience, Igor incorporates the styles of deep tissue and general relaxation. Igor enjoys identifying areas of pain and tension in the body, then manipulating the soft tissue and joints of the body in a way that helps a patient to feel freer in movement with less pain and deeper breathing. Igor also provides his clients with an at home exercise and stretching routine.

Outside of work, Igor enjoys jogging, cycling, dancing, yoga, meditating, weight strengthening, kung-fu, swimming and hiking.

"Igor is a really nice guy with a calming persona. Once you've met him for the first time, you kind of get the feeling that you've known him longer due to the friendly manner with which you are treated. I like that, aside from the first session (when we spent a bit of time discussing my specific pains and what I was looking to achieve through the sessions), you spend nearly all of your time receiving treatment. The result is that you leave feeling as though you've gotten good value for your money, as the treatments themselves have been great!"

Tommy Reinerth – Maple Ridge

"Hands down the best masseur I have ever had. Igor is highly skilled, knowledgable and actually works out and addresses your problem areas. I got more out of a 1 hour massage with him than the lifetime of massages I've had with any other RMT. I want to shout from the rooftops that everyone must try him and I will be telling everyone. Would commute hours to get a massage from this man. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

Sarah Harari, Maple Ridge

"Igor really listened to my concerns and did a great assessment to start the treatment. He makes you feel very comfortable and checks in with you for pressure. I left feeling a lot better & I was given great home-care to continue with my treatment plan. I definitely would recommend you visit him, you wont regret it."
