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)
Getting involved within the sports massage profession
Working with other health care providers
What to bring to events
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.
