What qualifications do I need to be a sports massage therapist?

We offer intensive sports massage courses in level 3 and level 4 sports massage courses, (and soon to be available, level 5 sports massage courses.)

Here are some of our sports massage & therapy courses we offer:

VTCT Level 3 & 4 training courses available:

  • VTCT Level 3 Award in Applying Hot and Cold Techniques in Sport and Active Leisure - COMING SOON

  • VTCT Level 3 Diploma in Preventing Injuries in Sport and Active Leisure - COMING SOON

A great choice of courses whether you are looking for a sports massage course, sports massage refresher course.

Our courses are formulated as blended learning so you learn the sports massage course online as well as the important hands on training too at one of our training venues.

Not all courses are available at each venue, and our Bideford, Devon centre is our VTCT approved centre and specialist training centre for our sports and fitness courses, in a working martial arts fitness centre. We have kickboxers, MMA & Krav Maga fighters in training for our level 3 and level 4 sports massage students to get their hands on for the 'hands on' practice to develop their skills. What better way to train than in a 'live' fitness environment?


Jason Ashton is our main sports therapy tutor based at our Bideford, Devon centre, is also owner of Zen Combat School, a martial arts business, that is also under the roof of our Holistic Therapies Training Academy, HQ, in Bideford, Devon. Jason has 35 years of experience in the sports industry, he is an ex semi-pro kick boxer & 5th Dan black belt. Jason brings his experience to his sports therapy training for his students. 

For more information on qualifications, we have written a blog on Who are the VTCT? and What are accredited courses?
