Maria Franceschi, Venezuela

The latest participant at the World Championship in Massage 2019 in Copenhagen is Maria Franceschi. IMA has asked Maria to tell about herself:

Hello my name is Maria Franceschi I’m from Venezuela but I live in Trinidad and Tobago. I have an accounting degree and I’m Thai Yoga massage Instructor and Rue Si Datton Instructor.

When I was 12 years old I suffered a terrible car accident that left me with complications and pains for many years, I tried conventional therapies in my country, but they did not work. 

My entry step into Thai Massage was out of pure curiosity, I tried a 2 hour massage, after that session I felt so good as I never experienced in my live before. I decided to enroll in a Thai massage course in the province of Phra Nakon Si Ayutthaya. 

During my 4 years living in different provinces in Thailand, I had the opportunity to study in schools including Wat Po and the Ministry of Education of Thailand. I have also the chance to study with preeminent Masters in different disciplines like Foot massage, Thai Yoga massage, Puerperium massage, oil massage, rural massage, Thai herbs and Buddhist studies.

I believe in the strong healing power of the Thai massage disciplines, as a recipient myself I live “Pain free”.  I am going to participate in the Eastern free style massage and Asian Massage.

The International Massage Association Look forward watching Maria Franceschi skills at the World Championship in massage 2019, June 22-23, in Copenhagen.
