Become a Sports massage therapist and learn how to analyze and treat specific injuries/sports injuries.


Step 2 is for those who want to take your masseur profile to the next level or to those who want a life in the world of sport. Here you will learn about extended muscular treatment techniques, biomechanics, kinesio taping, sports acupuncture and more treatment techniques.

This is a very practical training where you learn specific treatment techniques to effectively identify and treat injuries. The programme is composed in collaboration with some of the leaders in treatment in the world of sport. The training consists of additional theory, technician and tools that are indispensable when working with athletes. Working with sports and people on the move requires insight into fundamental human movement patterns. Thus, in order to guide and help with both performance improvements and injury rehabilitation, one should understand what the person’s body is going through in that activity.

By understanding basic biomechanics and being able to do basic movement analyses, you gain fundamental competences to engage directly with the athlete, where you understand the sport on a deeper level. You will learn to analyze typical sports and frequent movements, and will be able to actively work with the athlete with a specific understanding of the sports activity. In addition, you will gain specific skills in manual muscle testing, palpation and function, as well as be able to put the knowledge gained into a specific sports-relevant context where the athlete is met at a high level.
