Certificate in Sport & Health Massage

This certificate delivers the foundation skills for a future in sport and health massage. The programme is practical and hands-on, as you learn massage principles and techniques while working on your peers and the general public.

When you’ve completed this certificate you’ll have the self-assurance to start practicing or to carry on to higher-level study. You will be introduced to massage principles and theories and you’ll get the opportunity to treat the general public in a simulated clinic on campus.
