Latest Massage Therapist to register the World Championship in Massage 2023 is Sergio Lonardo from Switzerland. The International Massage Association has asked him to tell about himself:
My name is Sergio Lonardo and I’m 49 years old. I’m a massage therapist since 4 years from Switzerland and I have my massage practice in Weinfelden (Switzerland).
Every body is different, unique and every treatment with this marvel of nature fulfills me when I can help relieve pain or induce a state of relaxation for body and mind.
I completed my graduations in wellness and classic massage at the https://www.source-massage-fachschule.ch. Janine Dietziker as gratuated esalen teacher own the amazing source massage school where I also enjoyed further graduations in head lymphatic drainage and myofascial stretching/ structured deep work techniques. For the medical theory graduation I was at the Trisana massage school https://www.trisana.ch where I also enjoyed further graduations in dorn & breuss and lumbar spine complaints, my further graduation in Indian head massage was at https://massage-fachschule.ch/ in Zürich and the further graduations in acupressure and head & back complaints at the https://bodyfeet.ch/ school. By choosing different schools I can learn and integrate techniques from different massage teachers into my own treatments and constantly improve myself and my skills for my clients.
My massages are intuitive, never the same and include handles from all my massage graduations and further graduations to be able to give a personal, holistic, flowing treatment. With my hands and arms, I integrate classic elements combined with sweeping and powerful movements with alternating intensities, joint mobilization, acupressure and stretching elements, to achieve the best possible result for the musculoskeletal system. The most important thing for me is to build mutual trust during the treatment, to connect me with the body and convey positive energy to the body during the treatment. Together with the patient’s even breathing during the treatment, a state of relaxation is conveyed, which also has a positive effect on the vegetative nervous system.
As a holder of the Swiss therapist quality label EMR and ASCA, which require annual further graduations, clients can refund the costs of my treatments.
In addition as a massage therapist, I am a certified idiag spine check center and i carry out spine checks with the idiag m360 in order to then tailor the result to the back treatment.
In my free time i look after the ice hockey team EHC Frauenfeld with sports massages and i love to sing in a acappella choir.
In 2021 I took part the first time in the IMA online Massage World Championship and am looking forward to attending this unique event in Copenhagen in 2023 to get to know other therapists and take many impressions home with me. Thank you IMA for this opportunity.
Every change starts in yourself. Listen to your instinct and allow change. It is never too late. Warm greetings, Sergio ❤️
The International Massage Association look forward watching Sergio Lonardo skills at the World Championship in Massage 2023 in wonderful Copenhagen, Denmark.
