This is a brilliantly supportive and informative short course. It's a wonderful insight into the world of sports massage, taught at a very high level for professionals. The teacher gave valuable feedback to everyone on the course, supporting safe technique for both client and practitioner. The teacher also brought a wealth of knowledge from a thorough and broad perspective, having worked in the industry for years. This course suited me as a gateway to understanding my own potential within the field and was affirmative in decisions for the next steps in my career to train as a sports massage therapist. Suitable for newly qualified and long qualified practitioners alike, and tailored to suit the needs of the people in the room, with a range of therapy practices. I felt very respected despite my newness to the world of therapy.

The second day I was overwhelmed because so there were so many activities combined with trigger points and stretching. I couldn't get points these advanced techniques due to lack of experience . But it's good for people who is seeking advanced techniques.
The class was held on Thursday, so only 4 students participated in the class. It luckily meant we could get a lot of teacher's attentions , we were even told how we should move legs during massage , how to use own weight effectively to give pressure.
Class mates were all professional therapists, so gave useful feedback that normally I couldn't get from customers.
