Sports Massage Training

Have you wanted to take your massage game to the next level? Perhaps you have never worked with athletes before. Or you have but want to deep dive into Mechanics and Processes behind sports massage at an elite level. You want to feel empowered when an elite or competitive athlete, enters your clinic.

 

Say a young soccer player named Rachel comes into your practice. She has a championship game in two weeks, and has had general massage before, but her left hip flexor is hurting. What do you do? How would you help Rachel? 

You would need to know:

  • Has she seen a doctor or is working with an ATC

  • Where is she at in her season

  • What does her body alignment look like

  • What type of massage techniques has she had before

  • What movement is causing discomfort, and why

  • How does her sport move- is it unilateral? bilateral? What position is she?

 

These things could be overwhelming as a therapist, but does not have to be! Sports massage is Exciting! It addresses orthopedic and movement like none other. Come join us over this next year as we launch a Dedicated, FUN, and Educational Sports Massage Certification. Classes will be in a mixed Online and on-site training process so you do not have to be local to earn credits. You will gain knowledge that you can Quickly and Immediately apply in your massage practice with really good results.

My name is Jenny Mapes, owner of CrossFunction Sports Massage. I am a 17 yr movement specialist and trained for the 2012 London Olympics in the high jump. I've worked with hundreds of athletes from the weekend warrior to Professional and Olympic level athletes. My passion for sports and sports prehab drove me into the massage therapy profession as a standard massage was not cutting it. I saw one massage therapist who changed my views of massage, and after that experience, I strove to become the Best Sports Massage Therapist possible, and to use my movement and athletic background to empower other therapists in their practice.
