Jenya - Licensed Massage Therapist
Who are you?
My name is Jenya! I was born in Kazakhstan (former republic of Soviet Union) and my native language is Russian! I came to America 13 years ago and absolutely fell in love with this country. I am a mom of 2 little girls, who keep me on my toes 24/7. In my spare time I like to do needlepoint, make wedding cakes, travel the world and find new places that serve delicious food and wine.
Why did you become a massage therapist?
After being a pastry chef for over 20 years, I decided to change my career, because I wanted to spend more time with my family! I also had always loved getting massage myself and was drawn to the industry. It is amazing how great a massage can make you feel and the benefits it provides! I wanted to provide that for other people who need it.
Where and when did you go to school?
I graduated from Light and Food Industry University in Kazakhstan and have degree for production of bread, pasta and candy. For massage I graduated from Vienna’s American Institute of Bodywork and Massage in 2018.
What modalities do you specialize in?
I specialize in many modalities including Swedish massage , Therapeutic, Deep tissue, Chair massage, Hot stone Massage, Cold stone massage, Sport massage, and Prenatal massage.
List any dysfunctions and acute/chronic conditions you have treated or particularly specialize in:
Chronic back pain, shoulder pain or injury, glute and leg tension.
Why is massage important to you?
I love massage and feel that people underestimate the power of massage in one’s health. It is very important to take care of the body in our great, crazy and fast environment. We need to slow down and give “love” to our body and muscles.
How would you describe your style of massage:
I like to apply medium to deep pressure, but at the end of the day it is all about the client! Everyone has different needs/problems so I always communicate with a client to make him/her as comfortable as possible and ensure they have the best experience. My experience as a pastry chef, working with kneading dough and bread, performing detailed and precise work, has helped me in a lot of massage techniques as well.
What keeps you motivated?
I am very competitive and dedicated person. My principle is “Do it right and do it 100%”. I want people to not only enjoy their massage but also experience wonderful benefits from it as well. In this fast paced world, people are beginning to pay more attention to their health and well-being, which is awesome! I’m proud and honored to help them achieve those wellness goals through massage.
