Studying sports massage has been incredibly fulfilling. I have had the opportunity to work with talented mentors who have shared their knowledge and experiences, which in turn enhances mine! Completing my Associate of Applied Science degree in Clinical Sports Massage has offered me the rich foundation of anatomy and physiology that is vital to understanding how the body moves and functions.
Anyone can read about massage, but the work itself takes more than simply reading a book. It takes an understanding of anatomy, excellent communication skills, sensitivity to emotional responses and body language, intuitive touch, and ability to adjust pressure, depth and choose which technique is appropriate for each situation
