HLT52015 Diploma of Remedial Massage

National ID: HLT52015 | State ID: AWI6

Want a hands-on career?

Remedial massage therapists are in demand thanks to an increased trend for multi-disciplinary health care.

Our Diploma of Remedial Massage students learn from industry experts who are passionate about the body, healing and awakening students’ interest in the musculoskeletal system and treatment options to improve clients’ health and wellbeing.

You will train in a student massage clinic to meet the 200 hours of clinical supervised practice, which is located in the Murdoch health precinct next to Fiona Stanley and St John of God Hospitals.

You will learn several different types of massage including:

  • deep tissue
  • trigger point
  • manual lymph drainage
  • myofascial
  • PNF
  • pre and post-natal pregnancy massage
  • specialised treatments for people with chronic health disease.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in elite sporting events such as HBF Fun Run to apply sports massage treatments. Once you graduate you can work with clients presenting with soft tissue dysfunction, musculoskeletal imbalance or restrictions in range of motion. You will also learn specialised pregnancy massage so you can perform safe and accredited pre and post-natal massage. 

On completion you will be eligible to apply for all private health care provider numbers (including Medibank) through nationally accredited massage associations.

Work placement is a requirement for this course

This course has a mandatory work placement component that all students must complete. South Metropolitan TAFE will assist students in finding a suitable work placement by working with our industry partners. Please be aware that industries and employers have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic which has meant that some work placements have been cancelled, put on hold or student places significantly reduced. While every effort is being made to work with our industry partners to secure work placements during this unprecedented time, there may be delays in students being placed. As a result of these delays some students may take longer than the expected time to complete their course. Lecturing staff will keep all students up to date, and will inform students if this may affect them and cause a delay in finishing their course.
