My name is Elena Ivanova from Bulgaria.
More than 7 years ago, inspired by the art of massage, I completed a course for masseurs. Then I specialized and trained personally with several profecional therapists, choosing to concentrate on wellness massage, aromatherapy and anti-cellulite massages. Last year i upgrated my level with Miofascial realease techniques level 2, Drainage Lymphatique, Thermo Therapy Fire System and bamboo massage.
On 01.03.2017 I created a massage studio Mieli and to this day I successfully establish and develop the brand. We have thousands of satisfied customers, with an excellent rating on Google and first place on TripAdvisor in Sofia.
Mieli translated from Finnish means mind, heart, mood, soul, spirit.
Mieli massage comes from the heart and gives harmony to the soul, wisdom to the mind, freedom of spirit and sunny mood.
Long, smooth and rhythmic strokes are typical for Mieli massage. Our main goal is for our clients to become more vitality, calm and smiling after each massage.
I decided to take part in the competition to meet more inspiring masseurs and gain new knowledge. I am so excited and look forward to the workshops.
Today I don’t just do massages, I train for a competition and every day I am getting better and better, and my clients notice it.
Thanks for the opportunity to participate and look forward to the competition.
