MTI Member Wins National Massage Championships
Kate Browne, an MTI member from our West Country region, has been crowned overall champion at the National Massage Championships in London.
The competition took place over 2 days at Olympia. Kate competed in the Advanced Massage category, which she won, meaning she went onto the final that was made up of the winners of each of the 6 categories. Kate was then awarded the overall title.
Kate said: 'It's just amazing, I can't put it into words. I had no expectation of winning against all these other amazing therapists. I was absolutely elated after winning my category.
"To be recognised by these judges whom I admire and aspire to is really special, it's the most amazing feeling."
MTI Chair Earle Abrahamson was one of the 13 judges. He said: "This is an excellent achievement and one that MTI can be proud of. Kate was a true ambassador for our profession and demonstrated the skills and competencies associated with MTI trained therapists.
"On behalf of MTI, we congratulate Kate and thank her for flying our flag so high."
Kate has been invited to compete in the European and World Massage Championships next year.
She runs a mobile massage business in Gloucestershire, Cotswold Mobile Massage.
