Cesar TEJEDOR

Global Mentorship Program Ambassador SPAIN - Founder & CEO Massage Around the World

A trip to Thailand awoke my passion for traditional therapies, integrative medicine, and the Spa World, an experience based on the understanding and treatment of the human being at all levels, something very different from what I learned during my years of study in physiotherapy. This discovery changed the course of my life, leading me to dedicate the next 16 years to the study, research and development of different traditional medicines, massages and Spa techniques.
The Wat Po School in Thailand, The Ayurveda College in India, The Men Tsee Khang in Dharamsala, are some of the benchmark schools in which I have studied and collaborated with.
As a result of my investigation and travels, I have written 19 books about massage, traditional medicines and Spa techniques selling worldwide, leading me to participate in fairs and give courses and lectures all around the globe (Los Angeles, NY, Madrid, Dallas, Frankfurt, Tokio, Bangkok, Shanghai, Philadelphia, Beijing, HK…).
My education in Physical Therapy as well as Business Administration, together with my knowledge of the Spa Industry and international working experience, gave me the opportunity to work in Spa Consultancy, specially in the area of pre-opening, training, and quality of service.
After many years of being contacted by different professionals, who look for references for finding a good program/course in massage and Spa training, I decided to create Massage Around the World (MATW), a company that offers online and on-site high-quality training for Spa and Wellness Centers.
Today I combine my work as MATW Director, with Spa Training/Consultancy, and the practice of my own technique VibraHealing.
Ambassador of Global Wellness Day in Spain.
Ambassador of Global Mentorship Program.
Delegate for new Wellness Market for Termatalia.
