SPORTS MASSAGE CERTIFICATE​

Have you wanted to take your massage game to the next level? Perhaps you have never worked with athletes before. Or you have but want to deep dive into Mechanics and Processes behind sports massage at an elite level. You want to feel empowered when an elite or competitive athlete, enters your clinic.

 

Say a young soccer player named Rachel comes into your practice. She has a championship game in two weeks, and has had general massage before, but her left hip flexor is hurting. What do you do? How would you help Rachel? 

You would need to know:

  • Has she seen a doctor or is working with an ATC

  • Where is she at in her season

  • What does her body alignment look like

  • What type of massage techniques has she had before

  • What movement is causing discomfort, and why

  • How does her sport move- is it unilateral? bilateral? What position is she?

 

These things could be overwhelming as a therapist, but does not have to be! Sports massage is Exciting! It addresses orthopedic and movement like none other. Come join us as we launch a Dedicated, FUN, and Educational Specialty Certificate in Sports Massage. Classes will be in a mixed Online and on-site training process so you do not have to be local to earn credits.

Question: What athlete wants to wait to get injured before seeing a medical professional... when You can help prevent injury in the first place? You could help accelerate their healing process and have them get a leg up on their competition! We have spent several years building a dynamite sports massage team using these skills and techniques with extreme success, and am excited to now share them with you, so you may have that success for your clients as well.
