An award winning therapist with over 20 years’ experience in massage and body manipulation, Slav is regarded as one of the top massage therapists not only in London but internationally. He has looked after everyone from elite athletes and high profile business people to pop stars and royalty.
After graduating from the National Sports Academy in Sofia, Bulgaria, he worked as a personal trainer and physical therapist for 10 years before moving to London in 2003 to continue his education. His excellent knowledge of anatomy, physiology, sports nutrition and rehabilitation has provided Slav with a first-class foundation to develop his skills in massage to the highest level.
Slav joined KX in 2005. His specialities include Trigger Point Neuro-Muscular Therapy, Active Stretching Release and Joint Mobilisation amongst others. Treating people with Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder has been another area of professional interest for Slav, and he has since completed development programs for TMJ and Buccal (Intraoral) face-lifting massage. In 2019, he also became an apprentice to the 26th generation Master of Anma Face Massage (Ancient Japanese Face Lifting technique).
Slav has won multiple industry awards, including coming in 3rd place at the World Championship in Massage in 2019 – where he competed against therapists from all over the world. Following this success, he had the privilege to be a judge at the Greek National Massage Championship and in 2021 was appointed as a judge at the International Massage Championship.
Slav is a member of the European Massage Association (EMA), International Massage Association (IMA) and the World Massage Council (WMC).
