The Sports Massage Refresher Course is a practical weekend course covering the fundamental principles of sports massage.

It is suitable for both the novice and the working massage therapist. It will establish and improve your depth, sensitivity using effortless methods.

Techniques that will be covered include effleurage, petrissage and deep strokes, enabling you to give a top-to-toe deep tissue massage. Our focus will be to develop your skills, allowing you to give a safe and effective sports massage without stressing your hands.

Despite the name, sports massage isn't just for athletes. Deep tissue massage (as it's known) is for everyone and benefits all of us in many positive ways, physically and psychologically.



  • Do you already have a massage qualification?
  • Do you suffer aches in the wrists, shoulders or lower back?
  • Have you had any work related injuries?
  • Do you feel physically tired at the end of a session or day?
  • Do you want to work deeper and stronger?
  • Do you want to develop your awareness and sensitivity in your hands?
  • Do you need a refresher?
  • Do you need more confidence?
  • Do you want clients to return for the quality of your massage skills?
  • Does the question "what is the difference between sports massage and any other form of massage" burn in your soul?


If you have answered yes to any of these questions then NLSSMs' weekend Sports Massage Introduction course is for you.

It may have the word introduction in it but it is hardly exclusive to beginners rather it addresses all of these common situations. Increase your abilities by making adjustments to how you work. For whatever reason you choose to come to us we will ensure that your day is individualised for you.

This course is not for you if...

...you want to go over anatomy or have questions about advanced techniques, or you're seeking new creative ideas, you would be better advised to book a one-to-one session with Susan to address your individual needs.
