Injury rehabilitation, sports and remedial massage courses in The South West

Introduction to Massage

What is the Introduction to Massage Course?

A two-day course to introduce the novice student to the field of massage. This is very much a hands-on course teaching basic practical massage skills that will enable the student to give massage on a recreational level to family and friends.

It is also a pre-requisite for students intending to enrol on the BTEC Professional Diploma (Level 5) Course in Sports and Remedial Massage who have no prior massage experience.

"I just wanted to share my thoughts about the standards of teaching at The Massage Training School, Exmouth & Bristol. Today I attended the BTEC level 5 therapists in their final assessment and I commend both your tutors and your students. Whilst I've no idea about the world of massage therapy, I teach and assess students at degree and masters level and was credibly impressed with their level of knowledge, the attention to detail from tutors and the students' professionalism. I also have to say that just 5 minutes of sports & remedial therapy on my shoulder has achieved more than hours of other therapy. A credit to the standards at the school. Many thanks!"

Anna-Maria is an incredibly knowledgeable tutor and her passion for the industry is completely evident in the way she delivers each session. She seamlessly includes critical thinking and challenges her students to do the same and this element becomes more of a focus as the course develops. The School is forward thinking in its approach to evidence-based practice with a client-centred approach and I continue to benefit from the latest learning by attending CPD events. As a past student, it is great to know that high quality content is still available, as is the growing community of ISRM members.

I found the CPD format very easy to follow and was very impressed by how interactive it was. The content was thorough, yet simple to understand. I found this style to be less intimidating as a newly qualified STT which allowed me to get involved in the polls and questions. I found the 3 tutors presenting to have the perfect mix of personalities, knowledge and delivery.
