Professional Qualification: YMCA Sports Massage Therapy Diploma

The YMCA Sports Massage Therapy Diploma Level 3 is the perfect course for those looking to improve their knowledge and skills in order to deliver sports massage. As part of your course, you will gain valuable industry experience of working within a live clinic, and with local top sports teams/clubs.

You will carry out treatments for pre, post and interevent, maintenance and restorative purposes, through a range of basic massage techniques. This will ensure that you are industry ready on completion of your course. Scope of practice is restricted to working on dysfunctional tissue and excludes working on recent acute injuries or preexisting conditions.

Upon successful completion of this course, you can progress to the Sports Massage Certificate Level 4 delivered at South Devon College. You will also be qualified to work as an independent, freelance sports therapist or as a therapist within local sports clubs.
