Vocational training in
Soft Tissue Therapy (incorporating Sports Massage)
LSSM has been the pioneer and leader in this field for 25 years.
We train people to become complete therapists with the greatest career potential. Our therapists mainly treat clients who have musculoskeletal injury, pain or dysfunction caused by any of life's stresses and from all sectors of the community. Although sport is a common factor with many of our clients this is far from being the only thing we deal with.
Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy integrates three essential clinical elements.
Using a range of assessment methods to a) determine whether Soft Tissue Therapy is appropriate or make a suitable referral, or b) devise a suitable treatment plan for the individual client.
Using a range of soft tissue therapy techniques (including massage) to speed recovery from injury and improve the condition of the soft tissues.
Give advice on a range of remedial exercises and lifestyle factors aimed at improving recovery, preventing re-occurrence of injury as well as improve posture, performance and function.
Remedial= to offer a remedy to a problem.
Soft Tissues = the tissues directly involved in moving the skeleton, mainly muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Almost all massage therapists are self-employed and work in the private sector of healthcare and our vocational training is centred round this. It enables therapists to safely and effectively treat clients from all walks of life, suffering a variety of musculoskeletal as well as medical conditions. This offers the therapist the greatest potential for success in a career that can be immensely satisfying and enjoyable.
We provide students with many opportunities to work as volunteers at sports events like the London Marathon & Triathlon as well as other events all over the country.
