What is Tecar therapy?

Tecar therapy was founded in Milan, has been around for 35 years and was originally designed for professional athletes. Its use is widespread across Europe within the rehabilitation field. In this country its prevalence is within professional sports teams and a small number of clinics nationwide. 

Human Tecar uses low frequency radio currents to electromagnetically stimulate metabolism and microcirculation to accelerate healing of all soft tissue and bony tissue injuries. This is achieved by stimulating natural biological reactions to increase vascularisation and function whilst reducing pain.  

Human Tecar therapeutic effects: 

There are many beneficial effects of Tecar therapy which include:

Boosting cellular metabolism,

reducing pain (by decreasing sensitivity of nociceptors and utilises diathermy),

Increasing mobility,

aiding scar tissue healing,

increasing tissue temperature and more. 

Tecar therapy is still very much a hands-on manual treatment and is used in rehabilitation to significantly reduce pain, oedema, inflammation, muscle spasms, hypertonicity and sarcopenia, while increasing pain free mobility and range of motion.

Acute injuries can benefit from accelerated healing. Plus scar tissue appearance and firmness are improved.

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.

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.

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.
