Remedial Massage as a career
Certificate IV in massage therapy practice
Diploma of remedial massage
Massage uses knowledge and skills to assess and treat the soft tissues of the body to preserve health and alleviate pain and dysfunction. Medical practitioners have come to recognise the potential of massage therapy, especially those diseases of civilisation in which stress has been implicated as a major factor. Traditional health care systems throughout the world recognise that massage can play an important part in preventing and treating illness. As the popularity of massage increases more opportunities are being identified for its use – from easing the discomfort of childbirth to providing emotional support for the aged and their near relatives
Massage therapists work in a variety of work environments including private practice, mobile visiting practice, natural health clinics, beauty therapy clinics, health clubs and gyms, hospitals, aged care facilities and hospices.
These courses also offer a new and rewarding career for people who have come to a cross-road in their working lives and may be considering a new path to follow, or those wanting to enhance their current career.
