Simone Tunney

Hello! I’m Simone.

I believe that good things happen, and remain, when we prioritize our wellness.

My priority when I work is to give you an experience which will leave you feeling 100 % renewed and satisfied. I offer unique and effective massage therapy treatments to assist in your self-care routine, in a way that you can appreciate.

I come from the beautiful Island of Cyprus,known for it’s historical attractions – a tourist’s hot spot. I’m a Greek Cypriot and half Irish girl. Although I’ve not had a DNA test yet.

I now live under the pearly skies of Manchester city in England, With my 13 year old son ,who I adore , and our friendly husky dog Zeus- He already had the name Zeus 🙂

Inspired by the beautiful ancient built surroundings of where I grew up in, and the strength of Olympian athletes and Gods, the Olympians lounge was born three years ago.

Having a genuine passion and strong will to care for others and an interest in massage, gave me the confidence to practice. My friends would knock on my door whenever they had back pain. I’d imagine my home with space dedicated to massage, with a shelf full of aromatic oils.

I never thought that massage therapy can be a sustainable job. With commitment to learning and to my massage receivers, I am now a successful therapist.

After working as a lifeguard for several years, I took control of my destiny and came to Manchester. Here, I studied anatomy and physiology, and qualified as a massage therapist in several modalities.

My massage is a mastered piece of a representation of 100 therapists, and my own unique techniques.

Committed to providing a service of quality, gave me the skills that won me a silver medal at the world championships in massage 2018. I performed a Deep Tissue Sports Massage, under the Swedish massage category.

During this extraordinary achievement I was approached by the management of the SU WANYO Spa from Germany , known for their long suit in Thai massage and multi awards, and was offered the opportunity to share my massage techniques with a team of ten therapists, in the city of Lübeck in Germany.

Since my recognition as a World Champion In Massage, I’ve found a true love in teaching and I’m now working towards teaching qualifications to help therapists reach their full potential.

To communicate assurance I’ve become an associate of The Federation Of Holistic Therapists.

In 2019 I was selected by the International Massage Association to fulfil the role of a judge at The World Championship In Massage- the largest massage competition in the world!

At the very first National Championships in Greece 2019 I once again had the honor to serve at as a judge. An opportunity for people to showcase their skills. I truly appreciate the work as a judge, because I truly appreciate people’s work.

Straight after I flew to Romania to the National Romanian Championships and had the joy of watching and judging a large participation with extraordinary massage skills. There , I performed the Panacea Massage for all the participants and guests.

Since then I’ve partnered with specialist professionals, in an array of fields, and started The Global Massage Academy. An online platform with massage and business courses to help therapists reach their full potential, while I continue my massage service here in Manchester.

And.. accepted the invitation by The European massage Association to meet in Italy and express my opinion for Global Massage matters as well as perform the Panacea Massage.

The next stops are Italy and Greece where I’ll deliver an Advance Body Massage course and a Freestyle Massage course in both a well-known Massage school and in Greece a University.

Seeing a happy customer is what makes me feel successful.

When I started out , I had nothing more than determination and my health. It took me five years to settle properly in England and to learn much about life here. Manchester gave me the opportunity to learn and qualify in what I do. I’d be on a very, very tight budget and built The Olympians Lounge from heart . I love giving people the massages they deserve. It gives me great joy and makes me feel like I’m a part of their battle.

Thank you so much to my customers who have supported and motivated me to be all the things that I am today.

I believe that hard work pays off, if you believe it and if you are lucky to live to accomplish it. Doubt and resentment is something I keep a distance from. I’m here to give all that I can and help all that I can in my own way. I’m here to help people prioritize their wellness. Health above all!

Enjoy your time on this website!

With love ,

Simone
