COURSE OBJECTIVE

Sports massage is the use of massage for the treatment and prevention of sports injuries. It can be used as part of a training programme to help prevent injury; as part of a rehabilitation programme to treat injury; as part of a warm-up for an event and as part of the wind-down after the event. It helps improve the suppleness and flexibility of muscles and joints, improves lymph and blood circulation and assists the body systems in functioning at their optimum level.

In this course you will learn how to use different massage techniques before, during and after athletic events to help relieve muscle ache and soreness so as to ensure faster recovery and injury prevention.
