To fulfill the burgeoning demand for qualified sports massage therapists, H.E.A.L. has decided to introduce a unique Sports Massage Training Course. H.E.A.L. has been a pioneer in the field of sports science and physiotherapy in India. They introduced sports medicine concept in India way back in 2012. Since then they have treated more than 10,000 patients and 50 Olympic and Elite Athletes.
Over the last few years, there has been a rise in the demand for professional sports masseurs. This has been due to multiple reasons. One has been the emergence of Indian sporting champions on the global stage across sports such as athletics, weight lifting, gymnastics, and badminton. Secondly, both central and state governments have been providing facilities to encourage young sporting talents to pursue their ambition. Thirdly, the conceptualization of private leagues across cricket, wrestling, badminton, kabaddi, and football has created several opportunities for both sportspersons as well as those who comprise ancillary personnel including officials, trainers, managers and support staff. By 2023, it is predicted that the Indian sports industry would be worth $ 10 billion.
This course will be conducted by the renowned physiotherapist Dr. Nilesh Makwana. The course will involve 32 hours of training which would be completed within four to six weeks. There will also be a special batch for working individuals. There will be two types of examinations – one to test theoretical knowledge and another to check for practical expertise. The fees for this course is Rs 18,000 plus taxes which works out to be Rs 21,240 overall.
Namita Ambani, the COO of The HEAL Institute says “The HEAL Institute has always been committed to raising the bar and achieving excellence. Our pioneering pain management and relief techniques have been availed by more than 10,000 satisfied patients which include world-class athletes. As more and more Indians are embracing fitness, there is a huge lacuna between the existing number of sports massage therapists and the quantity that would be required in the next few years. Since we already possess the expertise, we decided to begin a sports massage training course that will not only fill this gap but also offer employment opportunities to aspiring sports massage therapists.”
Through this initiative, The Heal Institute is keen on bridging a critical gap that exists due to the lack of skilled professionals. Those who successfully complete the course will receive a recovery kit and a certificate that would be valid across the country. The icing on the cake is the 100% job guarantee which can enable one to earn anywhere between Rs 12,000 and Rs 80,000 depending on one’s caliber and perseverance.
