Sam Medina, Sweden

Latest participant to sign up for the World Championship in Massage is Sam Medina from Sweden. The International Massage Association has asked him to tell about himself:

My name is Sam Medina and I come from Bolivia. I am a Swedish citizen and I will represent Sweden in this competition. My interest in massage started in Bolivia when I was young and later on I worked with massage in Brazil, helping a friend with his clinic. After that I worked with massage at a fitnesscenter in Bolivia. 

I graduated as a medical massage therapist at Axelsons Institute in Stockholm, Sweden and I have worked as a massage therapist in Sweden since 2013. For several years I worked at Day Spa in central Stockholm and further developed my knowledge. The experience of working in three different countries have helped me to define my own personal style and identity as a therapist. 

In 2019 I decided to start my own company, Amazonía massageterapi, in central Stockholm. My company specializes in therapeutic massage. My base in Swedish classic massage and therapeutic work have given me a foundation to further build my personal style. In my own practice I combine a high-quality treatment with the luxurious feeling of visiting a spa. As an example, I offer therapeutic hot stone massages. 

The region of Amazonas is very importante to me, as I come from the tropical part of Bolivia, threfore the name of my company is Amazonía massageterapi.
