Latest Massage therapist to register for the World Championship in Massage is from Belgium. The IMA has asked him to tell about himself:
My name is Peter Vermeren and I live – and practice my massage skills – in Belgium.
I am a (sports) massage therapist and a certified masseur for cancer patients and people with other illnesses.
In addition to my personal practice, I am a soigneur for the AG Insurance NXTG Ladies UCI cycling team.
I accomplished my studies and earned my diploma in sports massage at Syntra Midden Vlaanderen in 2019.
Subsequently I graduated as ‘Zorgmasseur’ (free translation: Care masseur) at CVO Groeipunt.
‘Zorgmassage’ or ‘Care massage’ is a gentle form of massage for people suffering from a disease (such as cancer, CFS, fibromyalgia,… and many other pathologies).
This training gave me a refreshing view on massage in itself and the different applications and possibilities of massage.
Today, I combine the various techniques from sports massage, relaxation massage and care massage.
I work on muscles and bones, but also on the nervous system.
My massage compositions are tailor-made to each individual client.
Whether it is an athlete, a healthy or a sick person.
