Holders of the Certificate of Professional Qualification can set up their professional trades in “massage, reconditioning and regeneration services for sports massage”.

The Sports Massage course under Improve Academy is accredited by the Ministry of Education (MSMT-16941/2021-2) and is suitable for anyone seeking a career as a massage therapist. The course is also suitable for beginners and can be taken as a retraining course. Graduates of the course receive an excellent education in both massage practice and other areas of fitness care for their future clients (through linking with other Improve Academy courses).

Graduates master the anatomy of the human body and the specifics of sports and rehabilitation clients. We interconnect the courses so that the graduates gain a comprehensive view of the human body and psyche and gain confidence in their quality and professionalism as massage therapists. The course will not only enable you to set up your own business but will open the door to further levels of training.
