Sports massage – level 2

In this Sports massage course, modern and varied approaches to provide the sports massage therapist with the knowledge and techniques currently used in the field will be addressed. Students will also have the opportunity to chat with other sports massage therapists and share their successes and mistakes in their professional practice. The case studies presented in the course will serve as perfect examples for situations encountered in competition or in the clinic. The theoretical and practical parts of the course provide continuity in the apprenticeship of sports injuries and their clinical intervention. Neurological topics and modalities used by the sports massage therapists will be taught and practiced.
