Level 4 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy

The Level 4 Diploma builds on the learning outcomes of Level 3 and takes these concepts further. Students will learn how to treat and correct typical patterns of soft tissue dysfunction and injuries which have been pre-diagnosed by a GP for sports massage therapy. Learning outcomes include client assessment skills, injury identification and dysfunction, introduction to special testing, massage skill and technique development, aftercare advice and corrective exercise and prescription knowledge. Upon successful completion, students can progress into specialist sports massage therapy fields or into fitness instruction career routes. Students can also progress their academic learning further to a Level 5 course or into a specialist physiotherapy or osteopathy course.

Continuous Professional Development Courses

Sports Massage professionals will often deliver a holistic and integrated set of supporting treatments that sit alongside massage techniques for the best possible outcomes.

How we Deliver

At the BTST Academy, we deliver training that leads to qualifications in sports massage on a face-to-face basis. These are held through individual courses and workshops which run throughout the year. Why face-to-face rather than online? Because we know that the nature of sports massage and sports massage therapy means that learning needs to be first-hand, immersive and practical alongside theoretical know-how.

Why become a sports massage therapist?

The health and fitness industry is estimated to be worth around £5bn in the UK and is growing every year. As more people participate in sports and fitness activities, the need for qualified sports massage therapists has also grown and the skill is now highly in demand. Clients vary from occasional gym-goers through to elite athletes, with therapists working as much to prevent injury as well as to treat them.

The qualifications you need to become a sports massage therapist:

Qualified sports massage therapists will have a relevant diploma at level 3 or 4, and ongoing professional development (CPD) is essential to keep developing and growing in your field. Alongside formal qualifications, successful practitioners need to have great communication skills, to enjoy working with people and to be adept at helping people to feel comfortable even when they are experiencing stress, discomfort or more acute pain.
