This course is ideal for Massage Therapists who want to improve their knowledge and skills when working with athletes in any environment. It will provide participants with Sport Massage theory and practical techniques that can be utilized at sporting events, with athletic teams or in their own clinic setting.

The Participants will gain:

  1. An appreciation for the value of Sport Massage and its similarities or differences to classical massage.
  2. A practical competency in several basic massage techniques, including: compressions, cross-fibre massage, jostling, effleurage, petrissage and mobilizations.
  3. A competency in the theory and techniques of Pre-event, Post-event and Inter-event Sport Massage as well as Training and Maintenance Sport Massage.
  4. A quick and concise method of gathering useful information to make the Sport Massage session more effective and efficient.
  5. An understanding of the specific indications and contraindications for a variety of Sport Massage circumstances.
  6. An understanding of the Physiological, Psychological and Performance effects of Sport Massage.
  7. The ability to provide the athletes of the sports with an excellent quality of massage.
  8. An effective protocol when covering an athletic event.

The instructor will also provide a brief overview of the Canadian Sport Massage Therapists Association (CSMTA). This course is designed to assist in the preparation for the written and practical examinations for Sport Massage Therapist Certification.

Excellent Learning Environment:

1) This workshop is highly practical in nature with an ongoing encouragement to change partners so that each participant has an opportunity to practice on a wide variety of body types.

2) There will be dozens of demonstrations with each area of the body region broken down into very manageable components. One of the advantages of Sport Massage is that so much is done through clothing, so it is easier to provide a shorter demonstration, then have the participants practice them, and then switch around and receive the techniques from their partner.

3) There will be some lecture and power point presentation to provide the theoretical portion of the workshop.

4) All participants will receive a comprehensive printed manual that will reduce the need for notetaking during the course.
