The Carlton Institute one day Sports Massage Course is the perfect add-on to our Body Massage Course. You will be taught a form of Deep Tissue Massage which is designed to give you the best techniques and understanding that are required to work as a Sports Practitioner on non-pathological tissue (non-injured). Once you have fully completed the course you will be able to offer this treatment to your sporty clients encouraging the health of their muscles and connective tissue as well as improving the range of movement.

You might need to bring a model, take a look through our FAQs Tab if there's anything you're still not sure on. We hope to see you on one of our Sports Massage Courses soon.

Student Feedback

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the last two weeks. I have just completed my beauty therapy level 2 and massage therapy level 3 at the Leeds centre and I loved every second of it! I have learned so much and found each course extremely interesting and enjoyable. Our course leader, Yoselyn, was fantastic. She was so friendly and helpful and it was an absolute pleasure to be taught by her, especially as she was so knowledgeable in all areas. The Leeds school is really nice and it felt like a home from home for the 2 weeks I was there and I met some lovely people, who I will be keeping in touch with. All the equipment and products used for the training were excellent, as is the starter kit I bought. From before I even made my booking, all the staff have been so helpful and informative and I feel I have been supported every step of the way. I am now looking forward to getting started on my NVQ portfolio and workbooks (as soon as I receive them, which I hope will be soon?) and to getting to work as a therapist. I would be very grateful if you could post my feedback on the website and pass on my sincere thanks to Yoselyn at Leeds and also to Angeline who assisted on some of the courses. I will hopefully be returning to complete some more courses in the near future!  Thanks again to everyone at Carlton!
