Bach­e­lor of Sports and Ther­a­peu­tic Mas­sage

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

South­ern In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy Bach­e­lor of Sports and Ther­a­peu­tic Mas­sage grad­u­ate Chelsie Dim­mock traded in her win­ter job work­ing in the ski in­dus­try to take up her pas­sion for Mas­sage.

Chelsie gained an in­ter­est in study­ing clin­i­cal ther­a­peu­tic and sports mas­sage from hav­ing mas­sage as part of her per­sonal re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion from a snow­board­ing in­jury.

Chelsie says she chose SIT be­cause ‘‘the Bach­e­lor of Ther­a­peu­tic and Sports Mas­sage De­gree at SIT is the high­est level of mas­sage train­ing avail­able within the south­ern hemi­sphere . . . I loved the wide range of sub­jects that were cov­ered such as anatomy, phys­i­ol­ogy, pathol­ogy, mas­sage in­ter­ven­tions, move­ment anal­y­sis, clin­i­cal rea­son­ing and case stud­ies. Hav­ing a mas­sage clinic on­site at SIT that the stu­dents prac­ticed their hands on skills with clients was a fan­tas­tic en­vi­ron­ment to learn in and is the per­fect way to set the stu­dents up for a suc­cess­ful en­try into the work­force’’.

Chelsie is cur­rently work­ing as a clin­i­cal mas­sage ther­a­pist at Sport and Ther­a­peu­tic Mas­sage Queen­stown, and has found that ‘‘hav­ing th­ese skills en­ables me to work with an ar­ray of clien­tele and treat many dif­fer­ent cases in­volv­ing in­jury and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion, and as­sist clients heal­ing and well­be­ing.’’

‘‘Em­ploy­ing Chelsie with hav­ing a Bach­e­lor in Ther­a­peu­tic and Sport Mas­sage for SIT is valu­able to my busi­ness be­cause she has got a high level of knowl­edge and skills in clin­i­cal mas­sage. This al­lows me to be able to trust in her treat­ments with­out hav­ing to give fur­ther guid­ance. She also has a strong busi­ness knowl­edge, con­fi­dence and self­mo­ti­va­tion to pro­mote and ad­ver­tise and build up clien­tele,’’ says Rosana Jadue, owner of Sport and Ther­a­peu­tic Mas­sage Queen­stown.
