Sergey Raiter

RMT & Experienced, Certified Orthopedic Massage Therapist


The personal search for better health led Sergey to start his own company with the goal of helping others achieve a pain-free life. As a former athlete, Sergey found himself waking up every day in a great deal of pain. Sergey Raiter has helped hundreds of people eliminate their chronic pain and regain their mobility through his advanced manual manipulation massage therapy treatment. A student of world-renowned Massage Hall of Fame Inductee James Waslaski, Sergey has also studied Orthopedic massage therapy and Advanced Cyriax Frictions under the tutelage of well-known Calgary therapist Dr. Lanre Salami. 

The transformative experience with Mr. Waslaski propelled Sergey to complete the full Orthopedic Massage Therapy certification program, so he could put everything Mr. Waslaski taught him into practice. Since then Sergey has been fortunate enough to help hundreds of people recover from their physical injuries or conditions, just like Mr. Waslaski did for him.

Sergey’s fascination with Orthopedic massage has continued and has motivated him to become fully certified in Advanced Cyriax Frictions with Seminars for Health. Since then Sergey has received training from Dr. Lanre Salami, who is one of the top rehabilitation specialists in Calgary. 

Orthosports Inc. services are not just for athletes. 

Orthopedic massage can help relieve pain and regain mobility. The difference between most physiotherapists, chiropractors, and deep tissue massage therapists is the treatment of tendons versus muscles. Orthopedic massage dates back to 1940s. It can provide an immediate anesthetic effect to the injured areas. This helps the healing process. With the elimination of pain, the affected tendons, tissues, or fibers enable movement and reorganization of the damaged tissues back to their normal state. 

Cyriax Frictions Massage is an advanced technique that applies pressure directly on lesions through manual manipulation. When a tendon or soft tissue is damaged, scar tissue forms as part of the body’s natural healing process. This scar tissue is called granulation. This granulation tissue can inhibit movement or cause pain due to the extra pressure it exerts to an area compared to regular tissue. Cyriax Friction massage maintains mobility and prevents scar tissue from forming.
