Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy

Now Combined Level 3 and 4 Sports Massage Therapy

To fall in line with the Sports Massage Regulator (CNHC) new requirements, we will no longer be offering a stand-alone Level 3 Sports Massage course, as CNHC will not accept this for registration.   You will still be able to take Level 3 Sports Massage as a stand alone course, but not with Active Health Group, as  we do not feel that it is in the best interest of our students to offer them a course that will not be recognised when they graduate.  

We now offer a combined Level 3 and 4 course, and we have greatly reduced the combined cost compared to what it would cost for separate Level 3 and Level 4 courses.  Full details can are as follows:

Using a combination of online learning and practical training we will be covering:

  • Anatomy & Physiology for Sports Massage

  • Principles of health and fitness

  • Understanding the principles of soft tissue dysfunction

  • Professional practice in sports massage

  • Sports massage treatments

  • Anatomy and Physiology

  • Sports Massage consultations

  • Postural and ROM Assessments

  • Sports Maintenance Massage

  • Pre, Post, and Inter-event Massage
