Originally from Moscow, Russia, Filipp danced professionally with the famous Bolshoi Ballet. This experience has allowed Filipp to gain valuable insight into the treatment and prevention of musculo-skeletal injuries. Filipp is the acupuncturist of choice among the dancers of the Sarasota Ballet of Florida.

Filipp’s ties to Russia have given him the opportunity to introduce the Russian healing technology of SCENAR Therapy to his practice. Developed by the Russian Space Program, the SCENAR only became publicly known in the end of the 80’s because of “Perestroikaā€¯ and the breakdown of the USSR. Filipp is able to enhance the results of the SCENAR device by using it on the acupuncture points of the body to promote healing.
