Our Level 4 Sports Massage course is taught by our team of highly experienced practitioners and designed to deepen your knowledge of sports massage therapy.

You’ll acquire advanced skills and massage techniques, learn how to create and deliver treatment plans, and be taught how to implement massage strategies to support clients through injury rehabilitation.

Performing Subjective and Objective Assessment

Build on your existing understanding of sports massage contraindications, learn how to carry out specialist tests, and thoroughly study common injuries. Explore the causes, signs, and symptoms of specific injuries, and study the most appropriate way to diagnose, examine, and treat them.

Understand and Provide Sports Massage Techniques

Explore a range of fundamental, advanced, and accessory massage techniques, including:

  • Frictions
  • Tapotement
  • Trigger Pointing
  • Soft Tissue Release
  • Connective Tissue Massage
  • Muscle Energy Techniques (METs)

Investigate when and why they are applied, the advantages and disadvantages of each, technical applications, and how they are used.

Understand Treatment to Support Injury Rehabilitation

Gain a knowledge and understanding of treatments such as soft tissue repair, cryotherapy, and thermotherapy. Discover how various treatments can be applied to assist in injury management and learn about their effects, benefits, and contraindications.

Case Studies

Develop your clinical understanding and reasoning skills by studying 5 case studies of varying formats. You’ll learn how to effectively create and implement successful treatment plans for each of the injuries and areas of concern referenced, including Compression Fractures, Lateral Epicondylitis, Piriformis Syndrome, Quadricep Strain or Achilles Tendinitis, and Thoracic.

You must complete all modules and their respective assessments to pass the Level 4 Sports Massage Therapy course. You must also pass an observed practical assessment, where you will be required to:

  • Complete subjective and objective assessments
  • Provide massage treatment (including advanced techniques)
  • Present relevant aftercare advice

Our in-house tutors are here 7 days per week to provide their full support so that you can confidently complete, pass, and prepare for all assessments. Help and advice is available over the phone, via email, and through our instant chatbox service.

Our Level 4 Sports Massage course is taught via blended learning, which combines both online and practical study.

Theoretical elements of the course are completed online via our award-nominated e-Learning platform. Studying online means that the course is completely flexible, allowing you to work around your existing commitments.

You’ll also attend practical workshops, led by our experienced sports massage tutors. During these workshops, you’ll be taught the relevant massage techniques and modalities necessary to become a Level 4 sports massage therapist, and apply said techniques on various clients.

Whilst Level 3 Sports Massage Therapists can provide treatment to uninjured clients, as a Level 4 Sports Massage Practitioner you’ll be able to treat clients who are recovering from injury.

You’ll have the knowledge and qualifications needed to prescribe corrective exercise for the treatment of common injuries and soft tissue dysfunction, and be able to safely and effectively implement advanced techniques including frictions, trigger pointing and muscle energy techniques.

You’ll be able to pursue a range of employed or freelance positions, either working independently or within a multi-disciplinary team alongside professionals such as physiotherapists.
