Dragan Radu, Romania

Latest participant at the World Championship in Massage is Dragan Radu from Romania. He won Silver in the Swedish Massage category in 2021. He is one of the Pioneers who participated online at the World Championship in Massage 2021. IMA has asked him to tell about himself.

 My name is Radu Dragan,

I live in the beautiful city of Brasov, in an area of Romania you might have heard of as the magical Transylvania. 

The legend of Dracula might give you a wrong idea if you haven’t been here yet. This area is rich in good vibes, positive thoughts and people willing to share their knowledge.

Inspired by all these positive vibes, I felt that I want to do something to help people, relax, recover after a bad day and, most of all, recover after injuries due to sport, stress, tension or just life as it is. 

With this dream in mind, I followed the classes of the Massage and Alternative Therapies School and started taking the classes of the Balneo-physio-kinetotherapy and recovery Faculty inside the University of Medicine. I am also a student at the Faculty of Movement, Sports and Health Sciences Vasile Alecsandri from Bacau, Romania.

As part of my constant desire to improve, evolve and find new ways of helping people heal I also attended courses like Volcanic Rocks Massage, Loomi Loomi massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Yumeiho Therapy and many more.

My passion for massage and alternative therapies along with the willingness to pass on my knowledge gathered so far, led to the choice of another path in my life, crossed with the one of therapist masseur, the one of teacher in the massage therapy.

I chose IMA’s course as International teacher as a natural step mainly to evolve as a teacher, manager and as a therapist. Taking part at the World Championship in Copenhagen, in 2019 I was impressed by the level of the teachers that are part of IMA’s project and decided that I had to join and learn everything you had to share. And in 2021 at the same international championship I won the silver medal in the Swedish massage category.

Having 10 years of experience in this field, and I want more. 😊
