Learn Everything You Need To Know To Pursue A Successful Sports Massage Career

From theories and techniques on providing effective massages relevant to your clients’ needs, to setting up a practice and retaining clients, the Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through everything you need to know to pursue a successful sports massage career.

You’ll start out with the basics – what a sports massage is, how it differs from other massage types and how it evolved into the practice it is today, before learning about sports massage’s subtypes and the purposes of individual techniques.

The effects of sports massage are not singular but can be broken down into three components: physiological, physical, and psychological. The course explains how sports massage benefits each area and details particular benefits to the body, both before and after a sports event.

The Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through the massage techniques used in this therapy, covering Myofascial Release (MFR) Technique, Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction, and Tapotement, along with other massage techniques. You’ll learn how each works and the different methods used within each type.

With the Sports Massage Practitioner Course, you’ll be taken beyond the theories and techniques of the practice, as you learn how to take these skills and apply them in your own sports massage practice. You’ll discover what it takes to be successful in the industry, how to create an environment that is aligned with your clients’ goals and expectations, and the equipment you’ll need, both day-to-day and for specific treatment types.

You’ll learn about the professional principles that you need to put in place and adhere to, to ensure you are running a business that demonstrates integrity, professionalism and competence – providing high-quality treatments to every client and encouraging customer retention.

Another important, and often overlooked area that the Sports Massage Practitioner Course covers is keeping client records. As with any data, it is important to know what information you need from your clients to best serve their needs and how to treat this data. You’ll learn what information to collate and the legal requirements regarding the storage and disposal of the business records of your therapy service.
