The National Massage Championship is a London-based live competition for qualified massage therapists of all techniques and opens for the first time to global competitors!

When and where? Sun 4 & Mon 5 October 2020 at Olympia Beauty, Olympia London on the Gallery level

Why? Massage is mostly an isolating vocation. Massage therapists, once trained, are often left to continue their massage practice individually, many working on a freelance basis and so rarely receive any feedback or are inspired by other massage therapists in their field. We created The National Massage Championship to provide UK massage therapists the opportunity to network with other like-minded people, challenge themselves and to provide them a platform where they could excel in the industry and showcase their incredible talents! We have since launched it for the international market too.

What categories? For the UK competitor we have introduced Clinical Massage as a new category, alongside Spa/Wellness, Advanced, Eastern, Chair and Freestyle. For the international competior we have Freestyle Western and Freestyle Eastern.

What else is new? For the first time, The NMC will be hosting a networking reception each day after the Awards, where competitors and winners can take photos, receive feedback and network with the judges and sponsors.

Why sponsor? Sponsorship gives you the opportunity to reach this target audience in an impactful and measured way.
