The Institute of Massage and Sports Therapy Ltd has been providing the highest level of professional training for sports therapists for 16 years.
The institute was founded in 1998 with the aim of providing internationally recognised qualifications in sports therapy. It is a specialist college, and only offers courses that deal with sports massage and injury treatments. Courses cover anatomy and physiology, nutrition, injury assessment, sports massage, holistic and deep tissue massage, taping, kinesio taping, dry needling, rehabilitation, and much more.
The skills taught on these courses will enable graduates to treat conditions such as neck and shoulder tension, strains and sprains, whiplash, tennis elbow, groin strains, hamstring problems, knee ligament injuries, low back pain, and overuse injuries to name a few.
Because of its many years in the industry, the institute’s graduates are in great demand. It is the aim of the institute to ensure that graduates have the expertise and confidence on completion of the courses to be able to work successfully in the industry, and to this aim tutors help students to organise work experience and clinic work during their courses.
There are many opportunities for therapists with sports teams, in gyms, spas, with chiropractors and osteopaths, and nursing homes. Many graduates have successfully set up their own practice, which can be run either from a private clinic or from home.
