TECHNIQUES FOR SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPISTS
Sports massage therapy is a fast-paced and fulfilling career path, with client opportunities ranging from professional sports teams to weekend warrior athletes.

Receive hands-on instruction—including a shoulder injury case study—and tips to help you succeed in this specialty. With a focus on utilizing critical thinking in client assessment, this workshop will help you learn techniques, contraindications, session planning and other valuable information to take your sports massage career to the next level.

ABOUT THE AMTA/NCBTMB SPORTS MASSAGE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
A specialty certificate symbolizes advanced education and training in a particular massage approach or for working with a specific population. The AMTA/NCBTMB Sports Massage Specialty Certificate Program provides a solid foundational overview on the science of sports massage and settings for sports massage through online classes and is enhanced by a workshop featuring techniques and applications. The program culminates in the NCBTMB Sports Massage Specialty Certificate exam.

The program provides newer massage therapy practitioners an overview of sports massage, while still being detailed enough to give veteran massage therapists a refresher on current science. Earn your full sports massage certificate or take individual courses to help you reach your career goals.
