Graduate of the Month

Emma Greenwood - May 2021

Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy


I've been in corporate IT for many years now, so learning to become a Sports Massage Therapist has been a big career U-turn for me! I've long been passionate about exercise in all forms, and when I'm not at work you will usually find me weightlifting, doing CrossFit, running or some other form of working out.

How have you used your new qualification?

On May 1st, I set up my mobile Sports Massage business, Restore Fitness Bournemouth. It's currently part-time, outside my main IT job. I have gained a few clients in the last month and am really enjoying getting into the swing of things! My long term plan is to hire a room locally so my clients can come to me, but as I am building the business up the mobile service is working well for me. It's been an exciting journey already, and I've only just begun!

What did you think of the Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy course you attended?

The Sports Massage Academy has been brilliant in all aspects of my training. Our group started in September 2020; two lockdowns resulted in the training dates needing to be moved quite a lot! Sports Massage Academy have worked really hard to ensure we were safe at all times, provided online training for Anatomy when meeting up wasn't allowed, and have given us all a lot of support throughout. I've also done the IASTM CPD course which was brilliant, and signed on to three more CPD courses this year. I'll be doing the Level 4 course next year. The alumni group is also free and full of lovely, supportive SMTs, who make all aspects of becoming a SMT much less daunting. Finally, I would highly recommend the free live Business Webinars which gave me so much knowledge and confidence in setting up my business!
