Level 3 & 4 Combined Sports Massage Diploma 

Had a great time on both the level 3 & 4 sports massage course with Dawn. Great facilities and I found the relaxed atmosphere excellent for my learning needs. A good mix of solid practical time and the necessary anatomy study that is required. My confidence and business has grown beyond belief since doing these courses and I will be forever grateful for the help and support provided.

Jamie S - Reading

Combined Level 3 & 4 Sports Massage Diploma

A great, intense course.
It’s amazing how much I learnt about the body and massage techniques in such a short period of time.

Chris B - Marlborough

Level 3 & 4 Combined Sports Massage Diploma

Dawn’s well run course has proved highly beneficial to my career, enhancing my knowledge of the anatomy and gaining highly beneficial new skills. Along with the qualifications gained this has better equipped me in my role within the health & fitness industry and allowed me to expand my services to both existing and new clients. Dawn is a very personable professional, which makes for an enjoyable way to learn.

Laura R - Swindon

Level 4 Sports & Remedial Massage 

The level 4 remedial and sports massage has been one of the most interesting and useful courses I have been on. The leap from level 3 to 4 was difficult yet Dawn made it engaging with a mixture of practical and theory work with a variety of tasks to keep us on our toes. The tasks where made to be creative getting us to think outside the box. Strongly recommended for any one who wants to advance their skills and knowledge in sports massage therapy.

Tom F - Bristol

Level 3 & 4 Combined Sports Massage Diploma

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, the way it combined all the relevant theory and practical work, without becoming tedious suited my learning style. I honestly don’t have any negatives. Dawn, Katie & Louise were extremely knowledgeable and approachable and everyone had fun as well as learning. Originally I wasn’t keen on completing so many case studies, but as you gain experience and see the changes and results in the clients, then you realise how important they are and it really helps to build your confidence.

Laura S - Gloucester

I’ve done Level 4 Sports Massage, Level 5 Manual Therapy & Joint Mobilisations, and Science of Stretching with Core Elements. Core Elements are amazing, friendly and really know their stuff. I’ve already booked on to do another course! I’ve highly recommended Core Elements to friends and family – Keep up the fantastic courses Dawn. If you are looking to further develop yourself, skills, tools, knowledge, Core Elements is the place to go.

Sarah W - Swindon

I have done several courses with Core Elements. Fantastic knowledge coupled with the practical experience Dawn and her trainers have, makes the training here second to none. I would highly recommend this learning experience . Well worth the investment.
