Sports Massage Level 5
Unit 459 – Conduct Complex Assessment for Sports Massage
Unit 460 – Provide Complex Massage Techniques for Sports Massage
Holistic College Dublin offers a Level 5 Sports Massage course like no other – the most comprehensive, cutting edge sports massage program in Ireland. This course teaches a comprehensive multidisciplinary, pain free, approach to the treatment of complex sports injuries and chronic pain conditions. Our training program exceeds the requirements of our awarding body, I.T.E.C. and includes the concepts, special tests and techniques used in Myoskeletal Alignment Technique (MAT) and Orthopeadic Massage
This course will progress the Sports massage therapist’s understanding from the treatment of generic sports injuries to being able to pinpoint underlying cause, effectively treat and design rehabilitation programs, to address the most complex Myoskeletal and neurological dysfunctions. Active, Passive, Resisted and Neurological tests will evaluate the nature, severity, area of injury and the type of tissue involved. Advanced techniques are then used to release myofascial restrictions and Neuro-Muscular trigger points, treat any disorganised collagen, restore normal resting tone and re-establish joint function and centration. In Myoskeletal Alignment, soft tissue manoeuvres have been developed to release osseous fixations, relieve protective spasm and improve nerve gliding through all the body’s synovial joints.
