About the AMTA Sports Massage CE Program

The AMTA Sports Massage CE Program provides a solid foundational overview on the science of sports massage and settings for sports massage through online classes and is enhanced by a workshop featuring techniques and applications. 

The program provides newer massage therapy practitioners with an overview of sports massage, while still being detailed enough to give veteran massage therapists a refresher on current science. Earn your full sports massage certificate or take individual courses to help you reach your career goals.
