Core Elements - Level 4 Sports Massage Diploma

  • Our Sports Massage Therapy Certificate and Diploma is taught over the weekend, depending on the course dates available.


    Both course formats require independent reading and massage practise to be completed prior to training assessments.


    Pre-course reading is also required and will be sent out 6 weeks prior to dates available. 


    Due to the nature of massage therapy, a large proportion of the course is practical-based allowing you to gain as much hands-on practice and confidence as possible. A certain amount of undressing will also be required, as you will be working on your peers on practical days.
