ACMT advanced clinical massage therapist

Advanced Clinical Massage Therapist (ACMT) Certificate

This exciting certification will give you the skills and the recognition as an advanced practitioner. Learn cutting edge techniques to be efficient and confident in your ability to treat pain. This course combines the most fundamental of the JING Advanced series for treating pain and injury, with specialised mastery days so that you will be able to offer the best treatments to your clients. This is a fantastic stand alone course, or can form year one of the BTEC level 6 Professional Diploma in advanced clinical and sports massage.

Students who are nearing the end of a qualifying massage course or awaiting results will need to provide a letter from a tutor to verify competence in hands-on techniques.
