Sports Massage Therapy Course.
Start from a beginner & become a qualified sports massage therapist in both level 3 and 4. Learn field event massage and specialised sports massage techniques along with postural analysis, injury assessment and treatment – the whole package! You will also be able to offer massage, deep tissue massage and remedial massage. Level 3 and Level 4 go hand in hand with each other hence why we have combined them in one fantastic life changing course, click on the links to see the full VTCT syllabus. On completion you’ll achieve both  ‘VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy’ and ‘VTCT Level 4 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy’.

We have small classes so you can be assured of lots of attention & support  – videos to practice with between classes & plenty of quality time in class to get all your questions answered. Our course provides you with not only the qualification to practice as a Sports Massage Therapist, but also the skills to thrive in the industry, setting you up with business know-how.

You will be taught to treat your client for a specific need with the aim to prepare for an event – there is no such thing as a full body sports massage routine as every person you treat will have different requirements.
Most injuries in sport are through overuse and the cause needs to be identified and remedied, otherwise the injury is likely to recur – non-sports people often have the same problems, so you will be able to treat everyone.

As well as the general therapeutic value of massage, you can also safely and effectively deal with many strains and sprains (known professionally as soft tissue inflammation) which are by far the most common and often cause considerable pain in the short term, sometimes leading to serious long-term problems.
Also, you will learn corrective massage techniques and skills which enables you to work safely and effectively with people from all walks of life, in a wide range of situations. Corrective exercise in relation to training, injury prevention.

Previously taught at our sister school Jackie Hamilton School of Therapies, this course has now moved across to our school.

This sports massage training is a great add on for any therapist or as a stand alone qualification. You might also be interested in our Level 3 Swedish massage course.
