Health and Leisure Studies is the study of a wide range of subject areas designed to allow the student to develop a broad skills-base. This programme shares similar core modules to those in TL481, but with significant training in Massage techniques for registration as a massage therapist. The programme consists of applied, active training programmes and the theoretical foundations underpinning the promotion of wellness and optimal body function through massage/bodywork, physical activity, stress management techniques and exercise programming. Students also develop their communication, presentation, social and research skills. The programme engages significantly with local and regional communities to ensure core skills are developed in realistic settings.
