Looking for remedial & sports massage courses? There are lots to choose from. This field is growing in popularity as a career choice.
Remedial & sports massage courses aim to meet the demand for training by offering a route into this well-recognised discipline in modern healthcare. Jobs can come in a variety of fields depending upon which area you choose to specialise in. Some of the different possibilities include:
- Deep tissue
Thus you might find yourself working in an alternative medicine clinic alongside other therapists such as those providing aromatherapy or Reiki, or working in a sports injury setting.
Although many people who train in this field want to work on elite athletes, the reality is that most therapists will work on members of the public who are experiencing a wide variety of acute and chronic issues of pain and loss of mobility.
As with any training, it is essential that you understand what are the recognised qualifications in the field. There are many providers, but not all training will lead to a widely recognised qualification.
To ensure that the course you choose will meet your needs, ensure that it is recognised by the Institute of Sport & Remedial Massage (ISRM) - this is the professional body that promotes and protects the needs of professional clinical therapists.
ISRM qualifications are externally validated by Edexcel/BTEC, and include the BTEC Professional Diploma in Clinical Sport & Remedial Massage (Level 5), and the Diploma in Sport & Remedial Massage.
