The Active IQ level 3 diploma in sports massage therapy qualification is the course you need to allow you to provide sports massage therapy to a range of clients who have dysfunctional tissue, without acute/post acute injuries or underlying pathological conditions. The qualification allows you to work as a sports massage therapist within a gym or sports team or on a freelance basis.


The level 3 diploma in sports massage qualification is comprised of the following units;

Unit 1: Anatomy and physiology for sports massage

Unit 2: Principles of health and fitness

Unit 3: Understanding the principles of soft tissue dysfunction

Unit 4: Professional practice in sports massage

Unit 5: Sports massage treatments

This is a twelve week course that includes 10 days of delivery (1 day a week, including a two week break in the middle of your course).  Between delivery, you will be required to complete assessment paperwork and commit to 50 hours of massage practice to ensure competence upon completion.



All applications are considered, but an appropriate understanding of basic massage techniques, all of which is covered in a 1 day course provided by us is preferred.  Upon application to the course, this will be discussed with a member of our team.
