Mihail Alashki Physiotherapist About

Mihail Alashki


How can I help you improve your health?

Mihail graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Physiotherapy at the Medical University of Pleven, Bulgaria in 2002. After several years of working as a Physiotherapist, he then undertook his Masters Degree in Physiotherapy at the National Sports Academy "Vasil Levski" in Sofia in 2011. 

His interest to work as physiotherapist came from his passion for manual and sports medicine, and he developed a passion for musculoskeletal dysfunctions which he now specialises in, having written his thesis for his Master's Degree on Cervicogenic Headaches. After working as a physiotherapist for many years, he believes that in order for his patients to achieve the best possible outcome, it is vital to keep things fresh and enjoyable in his treatment sessions. His ethos is that with a bit of determination and enthusiasm, anything is possible.
