Level 3 sports massage
This level 4 sports massage course is an advanced qualification which will equip you to use sports massage therapy to help with soft tissue dysfunction and injury.
Sports massage therapists are at the forefront of correcting dysfunction and treating injuries. The scope of clients that qualified therapists can work with is incredibly broad and no two people are going to present with the same complaints. Whether you are working with elite athletes, sedentary office workers, or somebody in-between, there are a wide range of potential clients that can benefit from a suitably skilled and knowledgeable sports therapist.
Manual therapy has the potential to positively affect a wide range of people and a level 4 qualification only serves to enhance your career and earning potential. It’s an effective way to elevate your level 3 knowledge and demonstrate, both to yourself and others, that you are committed to high standards in your profession.
This Level 4 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy is fully accredited by YMCA Awards and is fully endorsed by The General Council for Massage Therapy (GCMT) and developed in association with The Association for Soft Tissue Therapists (SMA). It’s a qualification that can be used internationally, which is ideal if you have plans to find work overseas, like on a cruise ship, or at sporting events like marathons, triathlons and ultra-endurance races like Ironman for example.
Prior to enrolling on this level 4 sports massage course, you should already have completed the Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy (or equivalent). If you haven't completed this yet, we offer these two sports massage courses together as a package.
We also recommend that you have some experience of providing basic sports massage treatments with real clients, although this is not mandatory.
