Rules

European Massage Championship 2021 Rules

Who can participate

All professional massage therapists from anywhere in the world. 

European participants

European massage therapists can enter any of the categories except international. By European we mean geographical Europe, and this includes all the countries listed here.

International non-European participants

Participants who are not European or who do not work in Europe must enter the international category

Rules

Participants must have insurance covering them for their massages. If their country does not have any insurance for massage therapists they may bypass this rule. 

The New Massage Association is covered for the full event, but massage therapists must be covered just for their massage. This should be the same insurance as the one they have as a professional massage therapist in their country. It can be their spa employee insurance, or their freelance therapist insurance.
