Whether employed as part of a larger team or setting up your own business, an exciting range of career opportunities awaits graduates of NLSSM. There is a great demand for highly qualified sports massage therapists, and since the Olympics the demand is increasing. But we believe sport and remedial massage is not just for the athlete but for everyone who has minor soft tissue concerns, hence, the market is broad.
Some of our graduates go on to work with athletes at various levels within sport, others choose to work in a clinical setting with an alternative health team, but most set up their own private clinics and work as independent sport & remedial massage therapists.
Being your own boss has enormous benefits in that you can be flexible about your working hours and even your location. In addition, you will be working in an area of expertise that interests you and experiencing the huge rewards of seeing your clients improve with your work.

We’re proud of the reputation that NLSSM holds within the industry and our graduates can be highly sought after, within both the sport and health industries.
