Course Snapshot

This course will give you a thorough understanding of:

  • 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
  • Posture is also a key feature
  • 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.
  • 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.

    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!

  • Practical: Practical exam with ITEC examiner assessing the whole class together

  • Anatomy and Physiology is included and is part of the course and has a half  hour paper that you do in class. Plenty of classroom input for this important subject. 

  • Free video so that you can practice with confidence in between classes!

Link to ITEC Level 4 Sports Massage Therapy Information

We have to joined the two together. The level 3 will not give you the sports therapy qualification to enable you to assess and treat injuries which is what most people train in sports massage to do.

It used to be that the level 3 covered injuries, but now this has been divided, and the content expanded.  Combined it is a great course – and makes for a super confident and competent sports massage therapist!

Level 4 deals with assessment and treatment of injury – it is a huge subject and the level 3 part of the course is covered comparitively quickly so that you can go on to improve in your skills of assessment and actual treatment – just what you wanted!

Assessment Methods
  • 4 Projects, Treatment evidence of sports massage treatments and event work
  • 25 multiple choice question exam on Anatomy & Physiology - taken during class time, on screen exam
  • Practical Exam with ITEC taken at the school as a class.
