As a soft tissue therapist I am quite picky when it comes to treatments for myself. In the past I've tried numerous massage therapists and most of the time I was very disappointed. When I met Christos I was very excited to finally have found an extraordinary massage therapist. He has great sensitivity and adapts the depth of the massage to what is necessary for the specific condition and also what you as a client can bare and prefer.

Maintenance work to avoid injuries

Christos has outstanding knowledge and as he has a background as a nurse it feels to me that he knows much more about the human body than the average massage therapist. He is keen on learning more and he goes for further education on a regular basis. We alway enjoy exchanging our knowledge of what we learnt and keeping up-to-date with new methods and techniques. Having graduated as a massage therapist back in 2007 and keeping up with regular treatments I always come back to Christos- and I soooo recommend him!

Long term chronic neck injurie issues

I'm a Personal Trainer with a Massage Therapist background and have had a lifetime of playing sport and doing all sorts of other crazy things, which had left me a long term chronic neck injury issue that has been quite debilitating at times.

Over the years I've had numerous people work on me for that and the usual reasons to see a bodyworker and can honestly say that Christos is one of best Massage Therapists I've ever had. Along with all the additional tools of active release technique and acupuncture/dry needling which really helped my neck issue, he is very intuitive and listens in to what my body needs, a deep enough massage to be effective but not so much I want to leap off the table (as with some previous masseuses). Christos is very good at what he does I can highly recommend him!

Niggles from exercising

My treatments with Christos have been very beneficial for preventing and healing sports injuries. Christos is an accomplished athlete himself, and I have seen him numerous times to deal with niggles and muscle strains that arise from my athletics training. His clear understanding of anatomy and physiology allows him to target key problem areas with his massages. I find his dry needling particularly effective at reducing inflammation and expediting muscle healing. The sessions are always relaxed and enjoyable. I will continue to book with him in the future.

Pain from carrying heavy equipment

Christos is great and has kept me working. My job often involves long periods of time carry heavy equipment and it takes it's toll. Christos is reassuringly calm, he really listens and then using acupuncture and skilful deep massage gets to the route of the problem and fixes it. Everyone needs that person they can call when they need help, Christos is mine.

Simon Hakwksworth

Gymnast suffering from hamstring injury

Our son Rex was participating at the London Regional Acro Gymnastics Championships 2017. Shortly before the competition he suffered from a hamstring injury which prevented him from doing the full splits. His self confidence suffered a bit and he was worried about being able to attend the upcoming competition. At therapy4muscles Rex received some sports massage treatments and also had taping applied, which he kept on for the competition, he was also given advice on stretches, which he practised. On the competition day Rex was able to fully complete his routine, without pain and he was able to do the full splits again. On top of that Rex and his partner Darya won the gold meda, and then competed in the British Acro Gymnastic Championships. Rex's mother and I were very proud parents and Rex and Darya were super happy too. Thank you Christos at therapy4muscles for all your help.

Martina Doherty

Back pain and exercise related injuries

Christos has treated me a number of times for back injuries and exercise-related leg injuries and he has always been brilliant. As a woman receiving treatment from a male I never felt uncomfortable in any way as he is very professional in his manner. He quickly identifies the cause of the pain and uses his skills to treat it. I have always left each therapy session feeling much better and back to my regular exercise routine the next day. I have also had a few 'preventative' treatments to relieve tight muscles because of regular exercise and again have felt great after my session. I would highly recommend Christos in both scenarios!

Long standing back issues

Christos is an absolute genius when it comes to the human body. I started seeing him to rectify a back problem that I've had for years. Wow, what a difference it made. Huge increase in mobility as well as a decrease in pain. I continued to see Christos long after my initial treatments purely for injury prevention. He does amazing deep tissue massage as well as acupuncture and mobility/stretching work. I can not recommend him more. If you have any kind of muscular issues or you want to prevent getting them in the first place, Christos is the man to see!
