Event Description

Our intro to sports massage course is a 2 day, 16-hour class that embodies lectures and hands-on training. We do spend more time with hands-on training as we want you to feel comfortable going out and performing what you learn and continue to learn upon what you practiced in our class.

Our hands-on course teaches Event Sports massage for Pre-Event, Post-Event and Intra Event. We also go over body mechanics so you can be conscious of how you are practicing and practice correctly so you can do this type of work late into your career.

We will discuss:

Thermo dysfunction management (Hyperthermia/Hypothermia)

Cramp management

Getting involved within the sports massage profession

Working with other health care providers

What to bring to events

and more…

We have 2 instructors with a combined 40 years of experience. Both with their unique style and background education. Classes are fun, upbeat, play music and people leave happy and full of knowledge.

Sports Massage

Designed to aid athletic performance and help the body heal after exertion, sports massage focuses on key muscle groups and sets clear goals for each session. While often covered only briefly in massage schools, sports massage CE courses can help you perform more effective, efficient sessions for professional athletes and weekend warriors alike.

Classes in sports massage are dominated by phase-specific techniques for pre- or post-event, recovery, maintenance and rehabilitation massage. Rehabilitation courses often teach how to alter treatment protocols through different stages of healing. You can find courses specialized for certain sports, like running and golfing, learn how to get into event massage or use tools like heat packs and kinesiology tape.
