This course is aimed at students with no previous massage experience or qualification who are interested in qualifying in and practising Sports Massage. The way we teach this fast-track course is primarily aimed at students of Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Medicine, Acupuncture or Sports related subjects, who have prior knowledge of A&P and who are aiming to practise their chosen profession but are interested in gaining a massage qualification as well.
Students wishing to work specifically as Sports Massage Therapists can start with thi course, but should aim to follow this course with a Level 4 qualification.
Students without prior knowledge of A&P should consider starting with ITEC Massage Level 3 and should follow that up, if this is their intention, with Sports Massage Level 4.
Sports Massage Level 3 is a good, basic qualification. The course starts with the fundamentals, giving students a grounding in the massage strokes known as effleurage, petrissage and percussion. Students will be given a full body massage routine and will spend some time, at the start of the course, mastering these, learning to connect with their client and to read their client's muscles.
The course will then cover a number of sports massage techniques including:
- Deep Tissue Massage
- Muscle Energy Technique
- Myofascial Release
- Trigger Points
- Neuromuscular Facilitation Technique
- Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation
The course also covers the basics of nutrition, professional conduct, patient care, assessment and re-assessment, hygiene and health and safety. For a full syllabus, please follow this link to the ITEC website.
ITEC Sports Massage Level 3 will enable students to work professionally as a massage therapist and to join the Sports Massage Association (Level 3 membership).
