Sports Massage Therapy Schools

Sports Massage Therapy Schools teach massage therapy techniques that allow therapists to practice sports massage in private practice, as a sports team therapist, as a therapist in a fitness center, and as a valued team member in a rehabilitation facility.

A sports massage becoming more recognized as a intricate part of an athlete's rehabilitation program after injury. Therefore, sports massage therapists are sought to provide massage services.

Most sports massage therapists are self-employed and enjoy the freedom of making their own work schedule, however some are now being hired by sports teams for their abilities to work with athletes before, during, and after competitions or games.

In a massage school that teaches primary sports massage, you will learn how to provide pre-event massage to prepare muscles to perform without injury, post-event massage for treating muscles after an event and maintenance massage for between events.

You will also be trained to work with athletes who have scar tissue and adhesions from many years of sports and injuries associated with the sports.

About Me

A few things about me and the creation of Massage Education Guide....

After 20 years of practicing massage, I decided to create an online resource for people who want to learn about massage, and how to relax our minds to release anxiety and stress.

I have had many clients come for massage, only to discover they just needed to talk, or they needed to cry, and let go of pain or worry, or stress, in a place they felt safe

Life has changed a lot over the past 6 months, and going to a spa may not be an option financially, or even safe, with social distancing guidelines.

Finding a way to relax our minds, and release stress and tension at home, is critical for a healthy immune system, as we find our way through this pandemic.

I've created a spa recipe book, filled with easy at-home spa ideas, to help you relax and release stress from your body at home.

Now, because of this virus, I teach folks about the benefits of massage products, essential oils, body scrubs, bath bombs, and other make-at-home goodies that help us de-stress in the comfort and safety of home ... to relax the mind and body, and make life so much better!

What's my passion? Massage therapy always and forever is my love, but helping people learn how to relax at home, is a very close second!

So, let's learn how to  relax, to release stress, and rock this pandemic together!

Solo Build It!
