Our 2 day intensive Sports Massage course is ideal if you have already studied body massage and wish to progress your understanding of therapeutic treatment. You will learn a form of Deep Tissue Massage, which is designed to give you the basic requisite understanding of the skills required to work as a Sports Massage Therapist on non-pathological tissue (non-injured).
Once you have completed this diploma course, you will be able to apply preventative and post-event treatment that encourages the health of both muscles and connective tissue, help improve the range of your client’s movement as well as the tone, symmetry, balance of muscle and quality of posture.
Our courses are available in both class and solo learning formats. The practical training is delivered by one of our expert tutors. You will also receive lots of friendly guidance and advice from our admin support staff who are always available to assist you.
Please note: This Sports course is being offered as a CPD (continuous professional development) course and as such, should be viewed as an introduction to Sports Massage and as a method for massage therapists to learn about deeper therapeutic techniques.We are Coronavirus Careful

You need to have a qualification in body massage in order to participate with this course.
Pay for this course in 2 instalments. The first instalment secures your place on the course. The second instalment gives you access to the training materials, online theory test paper and practical tuition.
No. You need to have a qualification in body massage in order to attend this course.
Yes of course. Our classes are small (between 2-8 participants) and so you'll receive focused guidance and individual attention from our teacher. You will also be taught a complete therapy treatment routine for delivering to your clients. And because students practice upon one another, you will also experience for yourself how amazing and effective this treatment can be.
You will learn the same practical skills as with a longer course but you'll need to practice the treatment routine upon friends and family, using your manual and (where available) our on-line tutorial videos for further assistance after your practical training in order to perfect the techniques.
You're always welcome to return and attend only the practical training again. This is known as a refresher course and allows you to brush up on the techniques you have learned with us. Refresher courses are only available to students who have previously completed their course with us, and substantial discounts are offered.
No, this is a Diploma course. Diploma courses are also known as ‘short courses’ or ‘fast-track training’. However, the treatment techniques you'll learn are similar, and in some cases more extensive than on a level 3 course.

The theory test: Study your course manual at home and complete a theory test paper online. You can retake the test as many times as you like until you reach the pass mark and at no extra charge.
2 days practical: Starting at 10am and finishing at 5pm you will be taught all of the practical skills you will need to deliver a range of sports massage treatments. There is no practical test. Instead we assess your understanding and ability of each treatment technique as it is taught. Students practice upon one another so no need to bring a massage model.
This is the background and theory that you study from home and then complete an online test paper before attending your practical training. It is easily completed with between 8-12 hours of study time. For some people it may take a little longer.
