Plymouth Meeting & Philadelphia, PA

Registration and details here:

Imagine being able to be a participate as a sports massage therapist at one of the top 10 marathons in the country, the 2017 Philadelphia Marathon!

In this very unique course, our instructor, a Physical Therapist trained in France, a runner, MMA aficionado and the Sports Massage coordinator for the Philadelphia Marathon, Natacha Vidal, will discuss post-race sports massage for runners and triathletes. This course is designed to give you the skills and tools to provide Sports Massage at races, from small local 5Ks to large international triathlons.

This specific course has many applications, as running and triathlon races are multiplying in the USA and worldwide, benefiting therapists and athletes alike. Therapists will get a chance to increase their experience, meet potential clients and broadcast their business, while athletes receive a pleasant treatment, rewarding them for their hard race and helping them recover faster.

As an additional bonus, once the attendee has completed 10 hours of hands on training on November 11, 2017, attendees will have the opportunity to gain 6 additional hands on hours and participate at the Philadelphia Marathon on November 18 and/or 19.

Natacha will have a sign-up sheet at the November 11 seminar for attendees to sign up for the race day of their choice!
