I had graduated Medical School majoring in Pediatrics in Moscow, Russia, in 1993. After that I had moved to US and due to limited (read: non-existent) knowledge of English and a heavy duty obligation to support a family I had not taken a National Medical Board Exam for my license conversion and instead joined the forces of Biological Sciences. I had worked in Academic institutions and Pharmaceutical companies in US for 17 years now...
However, my passion for helping help people "one person at a time" using the knowledge of Medicine and curiosity for discovering the reasons of pain, along with my personal athletic pursuits, had brought me to Massage School to become an LMT. I started attending Oregon School of Massage in Portland, and continued here, in Austin, at Texas Healing Arts Institute. In the summer of 2010 I had finished all the required "hands-on" internship and took a National Certification Exam for an LMT.
That said, here is the shameless promotion. I am a certified LMT (license # MT111478) with ABMP insurance. I still hold my full-time job as a Research Associate at UT Austin, but because I love helping people and am pretty good at it, I am offering the following:
I will be available for "house-calls" for massage sessions. That means, your house (please make sure you have a room with enough space to put a massage table in and be able to move around it), my massage table and work. I will be having appointments weekday evenings (after 6pm) and some weekends afternoon. I prefer to be emailed at least 1 week in advance to schedule an appointment. My rates are extremely reasonable (it is not my food-on-the-table job, it's my passion) - I will charge $45 for an hour and $60 for 90min. If the location is more than 10 miles away, there will be driving fee (applied separately) - I live in NW Austin.
Email with any question. Spread the word. I have had many a clients, and may be one day I'll put up a website with a feedback, bu for now you might just have to try for yourself:)
Thanks, and looking forward seeing you.
