Latest massage therapist/teacher to sign up for the World Championship in Massage is from Switzerland. Catherine Cerezo is a former participant who also participates at the IMA’s “Best Massage Promotion 2022” video Competition. IMA has asked her to tell about herself:
I am Catherine Cerezo, practitioner for 18 years now, and having created the house Fleurs de coton in 2012, I am now running for the 2022 World Championship, representing Switzerland for the 2nd time.
Combining my experience and the feelings of my clients, I let their bodies guide me, in order to provide the essential.
When I practice, the most important thing is to listen, to be empathetic and to understand the pain I perceive.
The attention brought to the external environment is just as important as the one brought during my care. This is why I take it to heart to prepare my work area in a personalized way, by creating a calm and careful atmosphere to establish a cocoon of well-being.
My curiosity and my desire to always learn new techniques are guided by one and the same state of mind: to improve my skills in order to offer excellence to my clients. Learning and continuous improvement are two guiding lines that join my ongoing determination.
I am applying for the Swedish massage category, as I like the physiological approach, and I’m also signing up for the face massage category.
Furthermore, for me this contest is a way to expand my professional horizon, and it’s really motivating and challenging. That’s a synonym of progress, and evolution.
I am glad to represent Switzerland at the World Championship in Massage, and look forward to learn more.
The International Massage Association Massage Association and our judges look forward watching Catherine Cerezo skills again at the World Championship in Massage.
