2024 Hula Bowl Sport LMTs

Since 1985 Florida State Massage Therapy Association (FSMTA) has recognized the need for a standard basic training in Pre, Intermediate & Post Event Sports Massage for those therapists who wish to participate and provide massage at athletic events. Being an FSMTA is not required to take the FSMTA Sports Massage Team Training, however, it is a requirement to be an FSMTA Sports Team member. All active members have the same basic knowledge and understanding of how to safely work with a wide range of professional, semi-professional, collegiate and novice athletic participants of sporting events. In addition to these standards, the FSMTA Sports Team training includes guidelines for operating a sports team; protocol in preparing for and conducting an event; thermal injury recognition; techniques for performing Pre, Intermediate, & Post-event massage; injury recognition; common injury treatment.
