Our guide to sports massage courses

If you want to take part in sporting events like the Olympics or the World Cup but sport isn’t really for you, a sports massage course could be a good way to do your bit. Learn the basics such as how to manipulate muscle tissue and the best practice ways of healing sporting injuries. You could take your sports massage course in the evening or during the day, depending on your schedule and many beginners courses do not ask for specific qualifications. Some sports massage courses may focus on a particular sport and the injuries associated with it, where others may be broader in the topics they cover.

Life Changing Course

Where: Morley College

What: City & Guilds Diploma in Sports Massage

by Bentley BodyWorks - August 2014

After years of my life were lost to a dead end office job, I discovered a talent for massage and enrolled initially on the excellent C&G Body Massage course at Morley College. 18 months later (having followed up with the Sports Massage qualification) I left my old job and set up as a freelance massage therapist. The improvement in my quality of life has been astonishing and I have not looked back since! I owe a massive debt of gratitude to the incredible teaching I received at Morley. The workload was quite heavy, but there was support and guidance at every turn. I would recommend adult education to anyone. As I found out, it is never too late to change your life!
