The role of a sports massage therapist is an all-encompassing one and can be as much about preventing injuries as it is about treating them. Aside from being hands on with the therapy, you’ll need to screen and assess clients, aid recovery and support clients with the emotional side of injury and pain.
Sports massage isn’t solely reserved for elite athletes and sportspeople, although it can be incredibly effective for these groups. The massage techniques taught on this course can be adapted for everyone, from occasional gym goers to office workers.
Whether you want to work in a health club, physiotherapy clinic, spa, cruise ship, or at sporting events, you’ll have no shortage of opportunities once you are qualified. Many of our graduates have also gone on to start their own massage businesses, opening their own clinics, working from home, and even treating clients in their own home on a mobile basis. You really can take this qualification anywhere.
Our sports massage course is certificated by YMCA Awards and is fully endorsed by the Sports Therapy Association (STA). Currently, we deliver in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Cardiff, with more venues across the UK to be announced very soon.
There are no formal entry requirements or prerequisites for this sports massage course. However, we do recommend that prior to attending the practical part of the course you try a few massage treatments as a client so that you develop a greater appreciation for the practice and the role.

The skills and knowledge you’ll gain during your journey will empower you to achieve great success and truly impact the lives of your clients.
