Massage is the study of anatomy in braille.
This 100 hour program is designed to offer the massage therapist enough experience and education to become a Sports Massage practitioner. This training blends a combination of Sports Massage principles and time frames with an in-depth look at human anatomy and physiology. In this course we also explore the use of hydrotherapy as both a training tool and a rehabilitative modality. In the classroom, we examine common sports injuries and review various treatments and strength trainings of the injured sight. This training can be taken in conjunction with the basic program.
The Advanced Sports Massage Therapy training is broken up into three sections:
- Classroom instruction takes place on four Saturdays, over three months. (30 HOURS)
- Sports events practicum is an opportunity for the student to experience athletes in competition. Students are required to attend five scheduled events, from a variety of sports. (30 HOURS)
- Client record keeping is a way that the sports massage practitioner can track the development of an athlete. The student must work with two individual athletes over a 10-week period. Record keeping must include training habits, performance times, and any other patterns the therapist can find. Through this exercise the student receives the opportunity to track the athlete’s injury patterns, strength, conditioning and response to massage treatments. (40 HOURS)

I do not know what it is any more than I know
what health is…
But I know it is great.
