We strongly recommend all students pair the Taping and Strapping qualifcation with a Level 3 Sports Massage Therapist course. In doing so, you can begin to offer your clients a dedicated treatment plan that incorporates these teachings, tailored to their specific needs.

If you’re already a qualified sports massage therapist, why not progress even further with OriGym's Level 4 SMT qualification? Here you will learn advanced techniques that will benefit both your career and the health of your clients.

Another great progression route is to take our Level 3 Personal Trainer course, so you can use these techniques on a one-to-one basis with clients to enhance their bespoke workout programme.
