About Wrio Russell

Wrio Russell started his training in Massage Therapy in 1987 after following a career as an academic teacher (MA H.Dip.Ed) in both Italy and the UK and also training national class gymnasts. In 1989, he became a founder director of the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM) as well as running a small treatment practice, which included both dancers and athletes. However, his real interest has always been in the holistic Oriental approach to health and well-being and, having worked with Qigong and meditation, in 1995 he was guided to the Usui Reiki system of natural healing. In 1998, he became a Reiki master teacher and is now teaching the Reiki system in Eastbourne as well as overseeing the LSSM graduate programme. In the future, he plans to do an increasing amount of work overseas and to write on matters of health and healing.
