Advertiser Content: Sage Institute of Massage – Remedial Massage Therapist

It’s the New Year, the perfect time to think about your life, your career and your goals! So if you’re feeling stuck in your job or getting tired of the same old same old, turn your life around and get qualified in something new and rewarding – something you can get totally excited about!

If you are passionate about health and fitness, enjoy making a difference to the lives of others, or have always wanted to work in a sporting environment, then a career in remedial massage could be a brilliant choice. Working as a massage therapist is fantastically flexible: you can work full-time, part-time, or casually. And, if you already work in the fitness industry, having a qualification in a complimentary field like massage makes you far more employable, giving you that ever-important edge over your competitors.

What about employment possibilities? You’ll be happy to know there are a lot of places that need massage therapist: gyms, leisure centres, holiday resorts, hospitals, cruise ships, private clinics – the choice is endless. It’s really up to what you prefer.

A little FYI: the money can be excellent – and no one ever complained about that!

The Sage Remedial Massage Diploma covers techniques such as joint mobilisations, myofascial release, positional release, and muscle energy techniques – all designed to minimise joint and muscle aches and pains for a broad range of populations.

Think carefully about where you’d choose to get qualified though, because not all massage schools are the same. With Sage, you’re almost guaranteed to set your career off on a great start. Here’s why:

Registered Training Organisation

Sage Institute of Massage is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO ID 110070), which means that your course will be of the highest calibre, and your qualification will be nationally recognised. Once qualified, you can gain memberships with a professional industry association – which means your clients with private health insurance can claim rebates on their remedial massage treatments.

Multiple locations

Choose to study massage at our Melbourne CBD, Oakleigh or Elsternwick campuses, with courses offered either fulltime (during the week) or part time (on evenings and at weekends) with regular student intakes throughout the year. So when you’re ready to start, Sage is pretty much ready to take you!
