Graduate of the Month

Anja King - August 2019

Level 4 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy


Before starting my level 3 diploma in sports massage I was working as a Paediatric Physiotherapy assistant in the NHS. I have since completed my level 4 certificate and numerous CPD courses as my business has developed.

How have you used your new qualification?

After a year or so of juggling a full time job and massaging in the evenings and weekends I gave up my full time job in exchange for a part time PA job for a person with a spinal cord injury, which has enabled me to focus on my massage business 'The Anja Touch' as well as given me time to start my 200 hours yoga teacher training. I have been massaging at yoga retreats, supported swimmers in California doing a double channel crossing with the Sports Therapy Association, massaged on women's cycling holidays in the Pyrenees, looked after pro athletes at the triathlon in Nottingham as well as building up my own client base. I love what I do and never feel like I'm working as it's such a pleasure to support people feeling better, recover and looking after their well being.

What did you think of the Level 4 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy course you attended?

I enjoyed being back learning and doing something to develop myself as a person. I really enjoyed my time at the Sports Massage Academy and I have made friends for life. My life has changed in so many direction that I could never even have dreamt of and I have felt fully supported during all of my courses. I also really value the opportunities the graduate support network has provided me with like massaging at the World's Strongest Man events and teaching yoga at the annual conference.
