Born and raised in Moscow, Russia, Irina has always had a liking for giving people back rubs and foot massages. At 17, she moved to the US where she attended the University of Wisconsin. Irina has a Bachelor’s degree in Judaic History and Hebrew language. In 2008, when her husband got laid off from his job in Florida, Irina pursued massage school and became a therapist so as to be able to provide for her family while her husband went to school for a career change. Irina is a certified medical massage practitioner. She worked at an osteopathic physician’s office for 8 years, performing medical massage and various physical therapy techniques on elderly patients. Irina also treated patients in accident and post-op rehab. In 2016, Irina and her family moved to Nashville, where she now continues to practice her favorite craft.
