‘I initially undertook the Post-Graduate Diploma at NLSSM as CPD and a way to differentiate myself to other graduates having just completed my BSc Sports Therapy. Immediately I realised that it was more than just CPD, it was a huge jump in terms of enhancing my manual therapy skills, helping to understand hands-on treatment and it’s place in a well rounded treatment/rehabilitation program. I still use the skills I learnt today and stay in touch with friends made at the school. In terms of soft tissue therapists I only hire NLSSM graduates as I believe they produce the best therapists in the UK’.
