The IMC asked Michael Katyshev


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

Hi I’m professional massage therapist and dry needling therapist from Israel. I have been practicing massage for about 4 years. I studied massage at the Wingate Academy for 2 years,and from the master Moshe Moreno, and from the master Alfons Tarshel. In the previous competition I took 4th place in sports and deep tissue massage.


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

I motivated by all results of my massages and smile of my clients. I believe that massage helps us to become and stay healthy for many years, not only physically but also mentally. And as a masseur, it helps me to improve myself and my skills.


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

There are a lot of alternative medicine therapists in Israel, I hope to share my experience and learn something new from each of them!
