The IMC asked Michael Bandillon


Tell as a few words about you and your experience as a massage therapist

I am a former Overseas Filipino Worker a private aged- caregiver in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for almost 3yrs aside of taking care of my stroke patient i do massage him every night and day for him to feel better and normalized blood circulation for his fast recovery. After my contract i decided to moved in Kingdom of Bahrain to enhanced and explore my skills as a therapist for a facialist in a SPA industry and now im always thankful that im still using it right now with my repeated clients.


What is the motivation for your participation in the online INTERNATIONAL MASSAGE CHAMPIONSHIP 2021

There is one person who motivated me to join and participate this championship my mentor Mr. Herbert Aguirre a Professional Wellness Practitioner Trainor and Assessor here in our country. You can’t control how other people receive same energy. Anything you do filtered through the lens of whatever personal things they are going through at the moment. Just keep doing your thing with as much integrity and love as possible.


What message would you sent to the therapists of your country?

To all my fellow therapist same as mine aspiring ones. Always believe in your own skills, and yourselves, have confidence, continue to learn new things and always upgrade new knowledge for us to grow and enriched our God given gifts.
