Berkana Institute Founder, Jill Berkana will be a judge at International Massage Therapy Championship in Copenhagen, Denmark this summer!

 

Boulder, Colorado | January 7, 2019

 

“Berkana next summer will travel to Denmark to serve as a judge in the 2019 World Championships. She has long thought an “Olympics of massage” would be a great boost to the industry as a way to introduce styles from around the world to therapists eager to expand their practices.

“Even in the U.S., massage therapy is completely different from state to state and region to region,” Berkana said. A national competition would be “an amazing opportunity to learn about different techniques and modalities.” Berkana is hoping that, by participating, she can help others jump any hurdles they might have in considering “massage” and “competition” in the same vein.

“I’m hoping that my participation is going to wake people up a bit,” she said. “Hopefully we’ll get some more people in the U.S. to compete.”
