Kiev, Monday, March 22, 2021​🇺🇦

 

My dear friends, since the beginning of March an interesting project

"100 successful masseurs of Ukraine" is currently going on in UA.

I am impressed with the project mission: public recognition, promotion and advancement of successful specialists in SPA, massage and Wellness whose achievements and qualifications meet all the criteria for a successful business and career. I believe that, above all, successful specialists in the field of spa, massage and wellness have a positive attitude to life - even to failure. Where others give up, successful masters always try to start again and do things better than before. Masseurs are well aware of the success’s fundamental premise. I mean skillful creation of harmony and balance between material well-being, professional development and personal life. This is the way they come up to the SUCCESS.

We all know that being a qualified massage therapist and a successful one is not the same. The best among experts are usually chosen during professional championships and competitions by assessing practical skills. But there are no judges to award success. Success needs to be gained for years, and the main three "judges" are to determine it: customers, professional community and money.

Union of Professionals of SPA, Resorts and Wellness Facilities of Ukraine being the Founder of the Project kindly invited me to participate in the project as an Expert. I have a chance to become acquainted with experienced professionals of massage, rehabilitation, wellness and spa in Ukraine and share with them my experience, knowledge and best practices. This is a great opportunity to start professional communication and cooperation, exchange information and share projects.

Together we can watch the project, meet the best masters in Ukraine and hopefully do some more interesting common projects.

Now everything interesting and fine just begins. I will be happy to share with you all the interesting news from the Project, cause being the Expert I see all interesting things from within

International Order of Massage Therapists widens the horizons, and begins the work of sensitization by seeking and finding a close contact with university centers, schools and associations of massage therapy, and manual medicine and physics. Collaborating with spas helps to create intercultural events.

During these years ODM International establishes conventions or so-called memoranda of understanding between the first successes we remember the agreement with the CSEN of Milan affiliated to the CONI, then in the same year an important event is organized in collaboration with the faculty of physiotherapy of the State University G. D'Annunzio Pescara. Afterwards the international multidisciplinary network is widening, which currently involves the work of the managers of the aforementioned structures but also of individual therapists from 25 different countries.
