Nowadays, stress is a real health hazard. According to many surveys and researches in average 85 % of annual visits to medical doctors are due to stress related illnesses such as tension headaches, clinical depression, anxieties, hypertension, muscular aches, weak immune system and as a matter of fact Medical Massage is scientifically and clinically proven as most powerful method in stress management, including elimination of mentioned above diseases. According to many publications in medical journals and other professional media pain killers, anti-depressant, anti-anxiety medications alone are not really working in cases of the mentioned stress related illnesses and must be accompanied by other natural methods of stress management like massage as it is the most powerful stress management methodology.

Boris's personal story

Stone Preparation for Hot/Cold Stone Massage

A word about integrative medicine

Human body has an ingrained, God given ability to heal itself if it’s given a chance. Lately, according to professional medical publications, many leading physicians in the World come to the conclusion that in some cases modern medicine stands on the way of this ability, substituting it with manmade chemical and biological surrogates of health - drugs and unnecessary surgeries. This is the reason why lately more and more medical doctors are involved with integrative medicine departments and managing patient diseases not only by prescribing medications, but also recommending medical massage, physical therapy, acupuncture, clinical psychology etc.

The “drug” health approach was imposed upon our lives because it appeals to our flaw – laziness. Just take a pill and your headache or muscle pain will go away.

The problem is – it doesn’t go away. Instead, the distress signal that comes from an injured organ or tissue, is intercepted and the false one is sent to the brain – “everything is ok.” This goes on until the troubled organ or tissue receives irreversible damage and a person really needs a surgery to stay alive, otherwise he or she gets permanently ill, and often, because of side effects of medications.  Is there really a way to stay healthy in the modern world of super stress, mutated viruses, contaminated water and engineered food? Sure there is. It’s the way of loving yourself by maintaining your health.  Can this really be done?

Yes. This approach was known since long ago and was already taught the Great Ancient Chinese heeler Bean Que, who lived more than 2500 years ago during the Han Dynasty. “Nourishment of life and preservation of health should be carried out prior to arrival of disease, and effort must be made to avoid illness or try to fall ill on as few occasions as possible.” But staying healthy requires some efforts on the part of a person. It includes such components as right diet, moderate exercising and another huge contributing factor to your well-being - application of Medical Massage.

Medical Massage was developed through science and is so powerful, that for the sake of one's well-being, it cannot be ignored.  Medical Massage, conducted by properly trained therapist, can literally reverse many of the modern social medical diseases.  To a large degree, similar results could be achieved by an average person trained in Medical Self-Massage.  Most of massage power is in preventing diseases from happening. Certainly, stress and other environmental problems of society are chronic. Therefore the health maintenance also has to be conducted constantly.
For instance, to neutralize the negative effects of stress one needs to receive full body stress management massage, at least, once a week. Understanding that people’s life is hectic and rarely do they have time and money for weekly visits to massage therapist, they have to, at least, perform fifteen minutes of daily self-massage to stay healthy.

Medical Massage is not a remedy from all diseases, but it is one of the most effective means of conservative, noninvasive medicines that everyone can afford. Boris is one of those mavericks who practices, promotes and contributes to this type of conservative, noninvasive healing.
