SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY

A constant build up of tension in the muscles from regular activity can lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves. A skilled therapist will be able to detect variations in the soft tissues, select and apply appropriate treatment techniques, helping the person maintain a healthier physical state.

Course Testimonial

"

I thoroughly enjoyed this course, mainly because of the attentiveness and expertise of the tutors. I felt that their warm friendly approach to learning was very beneficial. From the outset the course gave me a real feeling of what it would be like to be a therapist due to all the practical sessions involved with clinic patients. Upon qualifying with LCH, I felt more than competent,and confident using the skills I attained. It has in no doubt helped my PT career flourish! Thank you LCH! Rupert.T, LCH Graduate
