Sport Event Massage Course
The 1-day Sport Event Massage Course for Allied Practitioners is targeted for Sport Specific Health Professional members of RCCSS(C), SPC, CATA (provincial associations), and CASEM. The course can also be taken by non- sport practitioner members as well as students of these professions that treat athletes at all levels.
Developed and taught by CSMTA Sport Fellows. Their experiences range from treating at National and International sporting events, being part of the Canadian Health Services Team at major games, and being part of the Integrated Support Team for Provincial, National, and Professional teams. Emphasis is placed on the practical component, supported by evidence and current best practices.
Techniques learned in this course can effectively and easily be transferable in both sporting event and clinical practice.
Time and tested protocols for event massage will be explained so that participants will leave with confidence in implementing them to their athletes.
The course encompasses theory and techniques of pre-event, post-event and inter-event sport massage. The techniques that will be covered are compressions, cross-fibre massage, jostling, joint mobilization, effleurage and petrissage.
Below will be brief overview of the topics so that most of the concentration is on the practical component of the course:
