The AAS in Clinical Sports Massage builds upon the existing Certificate Program. Students are trained in specific Clinical Sports Massage techniques and pathologies. Upon completion of the 1500 hour program, students will be eligible to apply for National Certification for Advanced Practice (NCAP). Massage therapists manipulate soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, using techniques such as Swedish Massage, Reflexology, Sports Massage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Lymphatic Drainage, and PNF and AIS stretching techniques, and Travel Trigger Point Therapy. Graduates of the Clinical Sports Massage program perform all of the skills in the certificate program and learn to perform thorough patient assessments and develop care plans based on assessments. Students implement care plans utilizing carefully selected techniques for the given disorders including recommended exercises for the client.
