Born and raised in Kazakhstan, Irina Michael settled in New York City after finishing her University studies in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk. A devotee of healing and fitness since early childhood, she has studied gymnastics and kung fu, receiving her black belt and helping to instruct classes in Tai Chi, Chi Gung, and other Chinese Martial Arts. From her interest in exercise and her early familiarity with massage and platza (a Russian massage with leaves performed in the sauna) she pursued a career in Massage Therapy, graduating from the Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences in 2007. Since then she has been developing her unique style of massage that incorporates her wealth of fitness experiences, eastern and western modalities and methodologies, and an ardent belief that with a healthy body and healthy mind, everyone can experience the benefits of wellness and happiness for an entire lifetime.
