1. Sports Massage Practitioner: Learn Everything You Need To Know To Pursue A Successful Sports Massage Career

From theories and techniques on providing effective massages relevant to your clients’ needs, to setting up a practice and retaining clients, the Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through everything you need to know to pursue a successful sports massage career.

You’ll start out with the basics – what a sports massage is, how it differs from other massage types and how it evolved into the practice it is today, before learning about sports massage’s subtypes and the purposes of individual techniques.

The effects of sports massage are not singular but can be broken down into three components: physiological, physical, and psychological. The course explains how sports massage benefits each area and details particular benefits to the body, both before and after a sports event.

The Sports Massage Practitioner Course guides you through the massage techniques used in this therapy, covering Myofascial Release (MFR) Technique, Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction, and Tapotement, along with other massage techniques. You’ll learn how each works and the different methods used within each type.

With the Sports Massage Practitioner Course, you’ll be taken beyond the theories and techniques of the practice, as you learn how to take these skills and apply them in your own sports massage practice. You’ll discover what it takes to be successful in the industry, how to create an environment that is aligned with your clients’ goals and expectations, and the equipment you’ll need, both day-to-day and for specific treatment types.

You’ll learn about the professional principles that you need to put in place and adhere to, to ensure you are running a business that demonstrates integrity, professionalism and competence – providing high-quality treatments to every client and encouraging customer retention.

Another important, and often overlooked area that the Sports Massage Practitioner Course covers is keeping client records. As with any data, it is important to know what information you need from your clients to best serve their needs and how to treat this data. You’ll learn in this massage course what information to collate and the legal requirements regarding the storage and disposal of the business records of your therapy service.

Who Would Benefit from This Course?

This course is designed to take you from complete beginner to Sports Massage Practitioner and business owner. The course is also applicable to sportspersons and those already working in the sports industry who would like to broaden their skill set and gain more knowledge of the body and the benefits of sports massage. The skills and knowledge gained from the Sports Massage Practitioner Course would be useful to massage therapists looking to add additional treatments to their service offering.

2. Kinesiology: Gain Health Benefits And Self Awareness Through Kinesiology

The Kinesiology Course introduces students to the most popular of the variations and modalities of this natural therapy technique, explaining how they help.

You will be taught how to use gentle kinesiology based exercises to gain health benefits and self-awareness for yourself, friends, and family members.

As the word ‘Kinesiology’ suggests, this practice is about the therapy and exploration of movement and mechanics within the body. Whether you have arrived at this page because you already have some knowledge of what kinesiology is and want to study it in more detail or you got here another way and have the burning question of ‘What is kinesiology?’, module 1 will bring clarity; exploring the therapy and how it fits in alongside general health. How it is used and practised as a physical treatment of movement, is discussed.

The 2nd module of the Kinesiology Course provides students with an understanding of the differences between health and ill health, or balance and lack of balance. This is done through briefly explaining the various systems of the body and physiological balance involved within them, which will help students understand the need for re-balancing, which is addressed later in the course.

In kinesiology, it is important to recognise imbalance in the systems of the body, the main technique of doing so being muscle testing, which is explained in module 3. This module covers how to test for and recognise both general and specific imbalances, and also discusses variations within kinesiology.

A big factor in energy breakdowns of the body, is stress. The 4th module of the Kinesiology Course discusses this link and how muscle testing can identify and, working with other therapies, aid in the recovery of various stresses and their related symptoms.

The 5th module of the course focusses on the role of kinesiology in testing for various allergies, as well as informing students in how each allergy covered affects the body. Also discussed here, is the needs we have as humans along with how kinesiology can provide emotional release.

Having discussed what is possible with the physical muscle testing that is used alongside the other areas discussed in the course so far, the 6th module of the Kinesiology Course concentrates exclusively on this area. This teaches how to perform muscle tests and what can be done to realign any breakdowns in energy flow.

Kinesiology is strictly speaking, simply a name given to muscle testing, which can provide information to the practitioner about what treatment the client needs. Module 7 explains the various holistic health studies that can be partnered with kinesiology to create a focussed holistic practice. There are several areas that the muscle test can be combined with that will help to: physically re-align the body, make gentle changes or help with lifestyle changes, along with aiding treatment choices for physical injury. The therapies in each area are covered in this module.

The final module of the Kinesiology Course is all about how to use what you have learned from this course, along with your chosen specialism/s, to create a business. This covers the various areas that you will need to be aware of to build and run a successful business, and keep on top of personal development.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Kinesiology Certificate Course is suitable for anyone would like to learn about this natural, energy healing process and its techniques, whether this is your first taste of holistic therapy or if you have existing knowledge that you wish to add to.

The course also covers how to become a practising Holistic Kinesiologist, should students wish to take their studies further and start a career in this area.

3. Sports Psychology: Learn How Our Minds Play An Important Role In Sports

Sports psychology is an interdisciplinary science that draws its foundations from biomechanics, physiology, kinesiology and psychology. It is the study of how our minds play an important role in performance and partaking in sports.

How are the great sports personalities different from us? Is it that they do things differently or are they made for sports? The answer is yes to both of these questions. They are indeed different, as they think like winners. It is here that sports psychology can be used to analyse the success of athletes.

Using stories as simple as The Hare and Tortoise and as grand as David and Goliath, the 1st module of the course uses these examples to explain Sports Psychology, and how the thought processes of winners can make all the difference in competition and in life. The module then goes on to explain the place of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and decision making within sports psychology.

The 2nd module of the Sports Psychology Certificate Course discusses the importance of mental strength in a number of areas, to aid success. This covers: attention and concentration, motivation (both intrinsic and extrinsic), mind control, the various types of psychotherapy, self-esteem, handling pressure, and staying in the zone.

It is important to understand no matter which skill or sport you wish to gain mastery of, time management will make or break you. The 3rd module is a practical guide on how to set your priorities and goals, and work towards them tenaciously to achieve your dreams.

The route to success is never easy and along the way there will be doubts and stress. The 4th module of the Sports Psychology Certificate Course offers a number of techniques that a sports psychologist may employ and suggest to combat the stresses their clients suffer from. These include: sleep relaxation, massage, EFT (Emotional freedom technique), yoga, meditation, mindfulness, positive affirmations, and diet.

Success in sport is rarely a solo effort and whether there it is a solo or team sport, there is always a team of people working towards success. The 5th module explains how to become an effectual leader, as well as discussing how to properly set goals, overcome obstacles, and use visualisation to be successful.

The success of a sports person, is not just the result of their hard work but also of those who support them, aside from coaches and team members, it is the further support network that is relied on to help them through; the friends and parents. Module 6 of the Sports Psychology Certificate Course discusses the role of parents in the nurturing of talent, explaining how parents can help their child to succeed, as well as how to deal with, recover from, and build up from failure.

The 7th module discusses the place of marketing and sponsorship within sports, from a psychological standpoint. This explains the various reasons why companies would sponsor a sports personality or team and the different ways in which they may do this, depending on what they hope to achieve.

The 8th and final module of the Sports Psychology Certificate Course exposes students to the role of a sports psychologist. This explains areas such as: the required level of education needed, salary expectations, what a typical day and various sessions could look like within the role, and ways in which you could expand your business in this area.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Sports Psychology Certificate Course is primarily aimed at anyone who is interested in pursuing a career as a sports psychologist, but would like to understand more about the role before entering higher education, and those who are training in any sport but would like to advance their mental prowess to match their physical training.

The course can also be followed as a general interest topic for those with an interest in psychology and/or sports and would like to gain a better understanding of this specialism.

4. Reflexology:Learn How To Treat Clients With Reflexology Techniques

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.

The Reflexology Certificate Course guides students through treating clients with reflexology techniques. This course goes into great depth about the various systems of the body, how they should function when in a healthy state, how each can become disordered, and how to aid recovery through reflexology.

In addition to the course materials, you will also be given access to video tutorials of a Holistic Therapist running through a Reflexology Session, highlighting key techniques and typical session practice. The videos cover:

  • Cleansing the feet
  • Application of cream
  • Ankle rotation
  • Ankle freeing
  • Spinal friction
  • Foot moulding
  • Creeping
  • Finger walking or creeping
  • Hooking out
  • Rotations
  • Kneading
  • Rib cage relaxation
  • Diaphragm relaxation
  • Ending a session

You will learn the practice of reflexology and covers its history, how reflexology is practised today, who it works for and its aims.

Students will learn how various parts of the feet mirror parts of the body, about the zones, guidelines, and anatomy of the feet, along with being exposed to foot maps.

You will discover all the areas that you need to be aware of when you intend to work on clients, covering topics such as: how to prepare for a session, creating a case history, knowing how to assess feet for ailments, and understanding common issues with feet.

Students will learn some common techniques in reflexology in detail, along with providing an understanding of the sensations that will accompany treatment and common side effects that can occur.

The course explains the digestive system, imparting knowledge about essential foodstuffs needed on a daily basis, the general function of the various digestive organs, specifics about the liver, and the process of swallowing. The course explains the various conditions that can arise should the digestive system become disordered, what reflexology can do to aid these types of ailments and how to perform the necessary techniques on the relevant areas of the feet.

The course describes the common disorders that can occur in the respiratory system, what can be done with reflexology to aid symptoms, and which techniques to apply. It also illustrates the process of blood circulation around the body, with particular focus around the heart – describing the locations and functions of the major parts of this organ. Heart conditions are also described, along with how reflexology is used in treating these ailments.

The lymphatic system with the lymph nodes, the thymus, and the spleen, and each of their functions, is explained along with the endocrine system, the glands and the general functions of the hormones secreted by them. Stress-related hormones are explained here, along with what reflexology can do to help this and the endocrine system as a whole.

The course explains the purpose and function of the nervous system, including the parasympathetic and sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system, and of the major parts of the brain. We also cover the structures and functions of the ears, eyes, and sinuses. Again, the disorders that can occur in each of these and how reflexology can aid recovery are discussed in this module.

Students will learn the musculoskeletal system and how reflexology can help in alleviating pain found within this system. The hands can be used a similar way as the feet in aiding symptoms of disorders in various areas of the body. Students will learn about the bones, muscles and joints of the hands, as well as providing a hand map and setting students the task of explaining how they would use the hand, rather the foot, in the treatment of a client, applying what they have learnt so far.

Finally, we will give students some pointers on how to set up a reflexology business. Areas of discussion include; research, setting working hours, equipment you’ll need, record keeping and bookkeeping, insurance, and promoting the business.

Who Would Benefit from the Course?

The Reflexology Certificate Course is accessible to everyone; requiring no previous knowledge, students are led from the basics, to understanding how reflexology can be used to aid specific aliments and disorders of the body. This knowledge can be applied to clients in a holistic therapy practice setting, either as a sole service or as an additional treatment to existing services, it can also be used to help friends and family with their ailments.

5. Advanced Reflexology:How Reflexology Can Be Used In Treatment 

The course will take you through a comprehensive study of human biology and how reflexology can be used in the treatment of specific conditions such as stress, infertility and pregnancy. You will also develop a strong understanding of the powerful connection that exists between reflexology and natural healing.

From the Advanced Reflexology Certificate Course, you will learn how to improve the treatments you provide. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of the ethos of reflexology and how you can develop a more intuitive, observational practice, that will reveal contra-indications of specific common health issues while ensuring you can translate the reflex map of the hands, feet and ears.

Who would benefit from this course?

If you have completed our Reflexology Certificate Course or already have a good level of foundational knowledge, the Advanced Reflexology Certificate Course will help you to progress your skills, knowledge, and technical ability.

3. Sports Psychology: Learn How Our Minds Play An Important Role In Sports

Sports psychology is an interdisciplinary science that draws its foundations from biomechanics, physiology, kinesiology and psychology. It is the study of how our minds play an important role in performance and partaking in sports.

How are the great sports personalities different from us? Is it that they do things differently or are they made for sports? The answer is yes to both of these questions. They are indeed different, as they think like winners. It is here that sports psychology can be used to analyse the success of athletes.

Using stories as simple as The Hare and Tortoise and as grand as David and Goliath, the 1st module of the course uses these examples to explain Sports Psychology, and how the thought processes of winners can make all the difference in competition and in life. The module then goes on to explain the place of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and decision making within sports psychology.

The 2nd module of the Sports Psychology Certificate Course discusses the importance of mental strength in a number of areas, to aid success. This covers: attention and concentration, motivation (both intrinsic and extrinsic), mind control, the various types of psychotherapy, self-esteem, handling pressure, and staying in the zone.

It is important to understand no matter which skill or sport you wish to gain mastery of, time management will make or break you. The 3rd module is a practical guide on how to set your priorities and goals, and work towards them tenaciously to achieve your dreams.

The route to success is never easy and along the way there will be doubts and stress. The 4th module of the Sports Psychology Certificate Course offers a number of techniques that a sports psychologist may employ and suggest to combat the stresses their clients suffer from. These include: sleep relaxation, massage, EFT (Emotional freedom technique), yoga, meditation, mindfulness, positive affirmations, and diet.

Success in sport is rarely a solo effort and whether there it is a solo or team sport, there is always a team of people working towards success. The 5th module explains how to become an effectual leader, as well as discussing how to properly set goals, overcome obstacles, and use visualisation to be successful.

The success of a sports person, is not just the result of their hard work but also of those who support them, aside from coaches and team members, it is the further support network that is relied on to help them through; the friends and parents. Module 6 of the Sports Psychology Certificate Course discusses the role of parents in the nurturing of talent, explaining how parents can help their child to succeed, as well as how to deal with, recover from, and build up from failure.

The 7th module discusses the place of marketing and sponsorship within sports, from a psychological standpoint. This explains the various reasons why companies would sponsor a sports personality or team and the different ways in which they may do this, depending on what they hope to achieve.

The 8th and final module of the Sports Psychology Certificate Course exposes students to the role of a sports psychologist. This explains areas such as: the required level of education needed, salary expectations, what a typical day and various sessions could look like within the role, and ways in which you could expand your business in this area.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Sports Psychology Certificate Course is primarily aimed at anyone who is interested in pursuing a career as a sports psychologist, but would like to understand more about the role before entering higher education, and those who are training in any sport but would like to advance their mental prowess to match their physical training.

The course can also be followed as a general interest topic for those with an interest in psychology and/or sports and would like to gain a better understanding of this specialism.

4. Reflexology:Learn How To Treat Clients With Reflexology Techniques

Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.

The Reflexology Certificate Course guides students through treating clients with reflexology techniques. This course goes into great depth about the various systems of the body, how they should function when in a healthy state, how each can become disordered, and how to aid recovery through reflexology.

In addition to the course materials, you will also be given access to video tutorials of a Holistic Therapist running through a Reflexology Session, highlighting key techniques and typical session practice. The videos cover:

  • Cleansing the feet
  • Application of cream
  • Ankle rotation
  • Ankle freeing
  • Spinal friction
  • Foot moulding
  • Creeping
  • Finger walking or creeping
  • Hooking out
  • Rotations
  • Kneading
  • Rib cage relaxation
  • Diaphragm relaxation
  • Ending a session

You will learn the practice of reflexology and covers its history, how reflexology is practised today, who it works for and its aims.

Students will learn how various parts of the feet mirror parts of the body, about the zones, guidelines, and anatomy of the feet, along with being exposed to foot maps.

You will discover all the areas that you need to be aware of when you intend to work on clients, covering topics such as: how to prepare for a session, creating a case history, knowing how to assess feet for ailments, and understanding common issues with feet.

Students will learn some common techniques in reflexology in detail, along with providing an understanding of the sensations that will accompany treatment and common side effects that can occur.

The course explains the digestive system, imparting knowledge about essential foodstuffs needed on a daily basis, the general function of the various digestive organs, specifics about the liver, and the process of swallowing. The course explains the various conditions that can arise should the digestive system become disordered, what reflexology can do to aid these types of ailments and how to perform the necessary techniques on the relevant areas of the feet.

The course describes the common disorders that can occur in the respiratory system, what can be done with reflexology to aid symptoms, and which techniques to apply. It also illustrates the process of blood circulation around the body, with particular focus around the heart – describing the locations and functions of the major parts of this organ. Heart conditions are also described, along with how reflexology is used in treating these ailments.

The lymphatic system with the lymph nodes, the thymus, and the spleen, and each of their functions, is explained along with the endocrine system, the glands and the general functions of the hormones secreted by them. Stress-related hormones are explained here, along with what reflexology can do to help this and the endocrine system as a whole.

The course explains the purpose and function of the nervous system, including the parasympathetic and sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system, and of the major parts of the brain. We also cover the structures and functions of the ears, eyes, and sinuses. Again, the disorders that can occur in each of these and how reflexology can aid recovery are discussed in this module.

Students will learn the musculoskeletal system and how reflexology can help in alleviating pain found within this system. The hands can be used a similar way as the feet in aiding symptoms of disorders in various areas of the body. Students will learn about the bones, muscles and joints of the hands, as well as providing a hand map and setting students the task of explaining how they would use the hand, rather the foot, in the treatment of a client, applying what they have learnt so far.

Finally, we will give students some pointers on how to set up a reflexology business. Areas of discussion include; research, setting working hours, equipment you’ll need, record keeping and bookkeeping, insurance, and promoting the business.

Who Would Benefit from the Course?

The Reflexology Certificate Course is accessible to everyone; requiring no previous knowledge, students are led from the basics, to understanding how reflexology can be used to aid specific aliments and disorders of the body. This knowledge can be applied to clients in a holistic therapy practice setting, either as a sole service or as an additional treatment to existing services, it can also be used to help friends and family with their ailments.

5. Advanced Reflexology:How Reflexology Can Be Used In Treatment 

The course will take you through a comprehensive study of human biology and how reflexology can be used in the treatment of specific conditions such as stress, infertility and pregnancy. You will also develop a strong understanding of the powerful connection that exists between reflexology and natural healing.

From the Advanced Reflexology Certificate Course, you will learn how to improve the treatments you provide. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of the ethos of reflexology and how you can develop a more intuitive, observational practice, that will reveal contra-indications of specific common health issues while ensuring you can translate the reflex map of the hands, feet and ears.
