Remedial Massage Therapist

Course Overview

The Institute’s Diploma of Remedial Massage is one of a kind, giving graduates the opportunity to work as a Remedial Massage Therapist across a range of industries from professional sport to rehabilitation.

The Remedial Massage Therapy program is the only massage qualification to include an Institute Sports Trainer certification. It will enable students to manage sporting injuries, conduct sports taping and safely transport injured athletes.  

As part of this course, students will also become an Institute Certified Functional Movement Therapist, learning how to identify, diagnose and treat movement-based dysfunction and prevent potential and recurring injuries.

Our Diploma of Remedial Massage not only gives students the qualification to practice as a Remedial Massage Therapist, but also the skills to thrive in the industry, setting them up with business skills, registration, an ABN and payment methods.

The Benefits of Our Remedial Massage Course

The demand for professionally trained and highly skilled Remedial Massage Therapists has never been greater, with manual therapy widely accepted and endorsed as a professional modality among Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors.

Many of our graduates have been successful in attaining positions with professional sporting teams such as the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the West Coast Eagles, as well as in gyms like Fitness First.

Different to the Certificate IV in Massage Therapy, the Diploma of Remedial Massage has a wider scope of practice, so you can assess and treat soft tissue dysfunction and become eligible for private health fund rebates.
