Country managers

Daliana Dumitra

Country manager Romania

The art of massage came to me in 2017. My first contact with this world was Thai massage, which I learned and took to the high level that I can now reach. I realize that the therapies in massage are so developed and this path which I have chosen is unlimited. That’s why, in 2018 I participated in the World Championship in Massage where I met amazing skilled people and in 2019 in the European Massage Championship where I have  participated in the beginner category and won the Silver medal.
Being part of the community was one of my biggest desires, to find people like me, that have the courage to follow their dreams and became a happier person.
After I won the medal, I was sure that the path that I had chosen was the right one, then my desire became stronger and EMA came to me and helped me make this dream come true. Now, I am the Country Manger in Romania, and have the possibility to unite all the Romanian therapist and bring them into the European
community. This is our first step on the moon. Little, but so important for all of us.
Being together, helping each other, sharing with other people, this is the evolution that I want to be part of. Sharing is caring!
