Live from Sea Asia 2019

An oasis among the hustle and bustle

The massage station, manned by the mobile massage team of the Singapore Association for the Visually Handicapped, is a hot favourite among the delegates and exhibitors at Sea Asia 2019. Delegates and exhibitors can avail themselves to a free 15-minute neck and shoulder massage - providing them with a welcome respite from their hectic and demanding schedules during the event.

The three-person massage team worked their magic on tight shoulders and stiff necks, winning praises from their customers.

Ingvild Nordhaug from Wikborg Rein of Norway was one of them. She said, “I had 20 minutes to spare between appointments, and decided to try it out. It has been a very busy time so I thought it would be good to destress.  It was a very good massage.”

One of the masseurs, Kamarun Zaman bin Abu, has been working his craft for over 20 years. He learnt the art of massage from the association in 1997 as a way to make a living. He said it is a physically demanding work but interesting and enjoyable.

“I find the work fun because I get to meet people, talk to them and learn new things from our conversations.”
