ITEC LEVEL 3 SPORTS MASSGE DIPLOMA...FEBRUARY 2017!

The main aim of the ITEC DIPLOMA in Sports Massage is to enable learners to gain the practical and theoretical skills necessary to provide Deep Tissue Massage and Sports Massage Therapy. Graduates will be able to perform full body Swedish massage and to use deep tissue massage techniques such as the use of elbows, forearms and knuckles to provide extra depth of penetration and prevent injury to the therapist from over reliance on the hands and thumbs.

Graduates will also have the requisite knowledge, understanding and skills to work as a sports massage practitioner, with non-injured tissue. In this qualification learners will develop their knowledge and understanding of the theory underpinning the practise of Sports Massage Therapy, including functional anatomy and physiology, nutrition, classification of sports injuries and the stages of healing. It will also provide learners with the understanding, skills and techniques to plan, prepare for and apply a range of sports massage methods to uninjured clients. Learners will also develop the skills to evaluate massage strategies and methods to inform on future treatments. This will allow graduates to gain work with sports teams and athletes where they can provide basic massage treatments both before and after training sessions or matches. They can also provide basic preventative massage between events to aid with recovery time and improve flexibility and reduce muscle tensions. However, graduates are not only trained to deal with athletes and sports people. This qualification can be used just as successfully with members of the public to help them to remain supple, deal with muscle tensions and adhesions and aid in general health and relaxation. Students will perform supervised treatments in our Clinics, to gain valuable experience and confidence as therapists. We are one of a very few ITEC colleges to provide this service to students.
