My name is Christos Sarafelntin and I am a sports massage therapist. After finishing school I trained as a nurse and started my working career as a combat medic in the Greek naval forces. After some years spent in the armed forces I retired due to some injuries and have had to find a new profession. In 2009 I re-trained at the Athens School of Natural and Alternative Medicine (Greece) and pursued a new career in massage therapy – in specific remedial and sports massage. Both my old and my new career drive from my deep passion to help people. Nowadays this is in terms of making people thrive in their chosen sport or to just give them a moment to relax and unwind from life. I treat variety of problems from sports injuries to general muscle tightness and headaches. Having had had to come back from several injuries myself has given me perspective to understand how challenging it can be when you desire to get back into physical activity but are being held back by problems in your body. I am always keen to learn new things and to update myself. I try and attend some professional seminars each year to become better at what I do and to widen my ability to help clients. When I am not working I enjoy a range of sporting activities including climbing, cycling, and rowing but my main passion is long distance (ultra) running and I can be often found training up and down the Thames path in and around London.
"....Extremely knowledgeable therapist with extensive experience, dedicated to identifying and 'fixing' problems/injuries. Very effective bespoke deep tissue massage. I've had bad problems with my hip and lower back for best part of last year which prevented me from training, saw several physios - NHS and private - felt like waste of money/time as the only advice I got was to strengthen core. Christos was the one who actually listened and helped to fix my problems/pain. Very thankful to have found him and would highly recommend - for athletes and non athletes!...."
"Very impressed with Christos's work, he takes time to listen to any problem areas and was very knowledgeable on the appropriate treatment. I definitely felt the benefits of the sessions and would highly recommend."
I've now had two sport massages (one 30 minutes, one 90 minutes) with Christos - I'd really recommend him for anyone who has some tension post workout or, like me, if you have some ongoing problems (shoulder, lower back and hip flexor). Christos is extremely professional and really makes sure that the level of pressure is suitable for you. He is very good as explaining what he is doing, and ensuring you feel comfortable. My muscles feel a lot more relaxed and loosened after the massages. I will certainly be making further appointments to continue to on my issue areas, but also as a great way to help my muscles recover post-workout. Also, really good value for money!
