The Florida School of Massage is hosting an Advanced Sports Massage Certification Program and is in need of athletes who can commit to a weekly massage program beginning early January and ending late February.
The program is 8 weeks and the basic format is as follows:
- First evaluation/consultation/massage with a student and instructor during the first week of January at the Florida School of Massage (FSM). Fee $70. (This fee is for the instructor’s time, not for the massage.)
- Student and athlete meet weekly for six weeks for the 1 hour long Sports Massage sessions, according to individual schedules – no charge (normally valued at over $400).
- Optional mid-term evaluation in late January or early February. This consultation may be scheduled by the request of either the athlete or the student. Fee $70. (Possible reasons for scheduling this appointment: student wants/needs more individual instruction or athlete has situation that requires more specific attention).
- In late February, student, athlete and instructor meet again at FSM for final evaluation/consultation/massage. Fee $70
A commitment to a weekly massage is important for a consistent and quality learning experience – please make sure you can commit before you sign up.
