Latest participant to sign up for the World Championship In Massage is Tukta Chaplik living in Switzerland. IMA has asked her to tell about herself:
I was born in Thailand but I am leaving for now more than 20 years in Basel, Switzerland. I started my education with Thai Massage course from which I certified at the end of 2015. Since then I have certified from various courses, extending my knowledge in Thai Massage but adding many more techniques such as Thai Warrior Massage, Sport Massage, Foot Reflexology, Schwedisch Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Lomi Lomi Massage, Indian Head Massage, Fusion Oriental Therapy.
I opened my own Massage Studio in Basel in January 2018 and own now two studios there. I love to still learn about new techniques from Asian as well as Western Massage techniques and actually mix the different techniques in delivering a personalised massage to my customers. I love to share my knowledge and train my team to ensure the highest possible quality of service.
