Perfect Blend Between Online & Face To Face

Our courses are purposely built with the busy lifestyle in mind – which is why all theory learning occurs through our industry-leading online platform, meaning you can pause, rewind and replay as often as you like. And because the online content is delivered in small chunks, you can access your course whenever and wherever you like – which is perfect for those 5 and 10 minute windows of time.*

Our tutors have built ultra-successful therapy businesses, gained degrees in physiotherapy and sports therapy, and established their research credentials through MSc and PhD study and subsequent peer-reviewed publications. We have an abundance of knowledge and experience to pass on to you, and ensure you complete the course head and shoulders above other newly qualified therapists.

Where level 3 training prepares you to use sports massage for pre and post sporting events, level 4 training opens up your opportunities to provide sports massage as a treatment. Building upon your first year of degree study in physiotherapy or sports therapy, you are presented with in-depth knowledge of a broader range of techniques and injuries than you would at level 3.

You will be ready for injury management, being able to effectively assess clients, delving into the clinical reasoning aspect of sports massage, and how to effectively implement advanced sports massage techniques to aid the recovery of common soft tissue injuries.

We prepare you fully for all assessments, taking away unnecessary stress and ensuring you feel confident. Given our extensive experience in teaching and assessment, our level 4 training programme delivers to you exactly the right level of knowledge needed to successfully pass the course and to then make use of your new skills in your career.

Taking you to a deeper level of understanding, the level 4 assessment includes:

  • Pre Course: Online learning including quizzes and A&P MCQ completion (70% pass requirement)
  • Practical Assessments: You will be assessed formatively over the two face-to-face days demonstrating a range of level 4 massage techniques. You will also be required to complete a short summative practical assessment via a video submission post course, to demonstrate a selection of advanced massage techniques and objective special tests.
  • Post Course: You will have 3 case studies to complete on our online learning platform based on three sporting injuries. The subjective history and injury overview will be provided and you will need to complete a client assessment form to detail what are pertinent details. Once you have completed the 3 case studies (completed after the 2 day face-to-face workshop), and have paid for your course in full, a very short Part 2 will be released to you where you can access your certificate.

One reason that Breeze Academy stands out amongst health and wellness education providers is our commitment to making education accessible to as many people as possible. We can do this through harnessing the very best of our online platform, reducing the need to attend multiple days of face-to-face lessons, saving our learners £££'s in travel and time away from work.

On top of this, we also travel the globe to bring our face-to-face content to your doorstep. So, if you have a space that could accommodate up to 15 people, please get in touch and we can get a course booked in at your place of work or university! Reach out via our contact form or on [email protected] (we respond to all queries, usually within the hour).

We are pleased to offer you the option of paying for the course up front, or over 3 or 5 months (at no extra cost). However, in order to receive your certificate, you must have paid the course fee in full.

If you have opted for instalments, you will be able to attend the face-to-face workshop, but you will not receive your certificate until all payments have been made (you have the option of paying off your remaining balance at any time).

This course is only open to physiotherapy, sports therapy, sports rehabilitation, chiropractic and osteopathy students who have completed their first year of degree study. Breeze Academy are one of the only direct-to-level 4 sports massage training providers.
