Bachelor of Sports and Therapeutic Massage
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.
