My name is Naree Seume, I am from Thailand. I have been in the Spa industry since 2000. I have worked in various hotels in Thailand, developing from Spa Therapist to Spa Expert Therapist, Spa Supervisor, Spa Trainer, Assistant Spa Manager, Spa Manager and Director of Spa at JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa. Later I moved to Germany where I am now Spa Manager in Lutherstadt Wittenberg.
In 2017 I participated in the World Massage Championship, performing Thai Warrior massage trained by Master Pathompon Aiyarattanaruk or Master Jack in Thailand. I thought this was a great opportunity to meet other massage therapists from around the world, all in one place. I didn’t expect to win but actually I won the Asian category and in the finals I went on to win the gold medal for all categories and become the World Champion of Massage 2017. I am so grateful for this amazing moment.
In 2018 and 2019 I was selected as a Judge at the World Massage Championship in Copenhagen, Denmark, and at the European Massage Championship 2019 in Spilamberto, Italy.
