Martins Ikstens, Latvia

Latest participant at the World Championship in Massage 2019 is Martins Ikstens from Latvia. IMA has asked him to tell about himself.

Greetings! My name is Martins Ikstens. I perform a balanced but firm Swedish massage technique. In my foot massage I combine classic massage that delivers muscle tension relief, and western-style reflexology that affect the nervous system. I believe that massage is more than physical treatment, it also improves physical and emotional well-being. I’m sure that a well rested person is able to listen to him/herself, feel the rhythm of nature and and enjoy life to full capacity. Therefore I invite everyone to relax and dedicate time to yourself in order to garner love to devote to people around you. Hope we all will do our best and enjoy the Championship.

In 2016 I have graduated SPA SCHOOL RIGA as a SPA specialist  ( and this year I will graduate University of Latvia Riga Medical college, study program massage and hydrotherapy. (

The IMA look forward watching Martins Ikstens skills at the World Championship in Massage 2019.
