I have just graduated from NLSSM on Sunday and I am absolutely ecstatic with my results. I could not have done it without the consistent support from Esther (my tutor) and all the teachers and people involved.

The knowledge and experience I got was fantastic, I have learnt so much and cannot wait to continue learning and looking forward to my journey ahead.

Everyone is friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. If you are considering committing to this course, book it! You will not regret it and you will not be disappointed!


I’m a current student of Level 5 Sports Massage and Soft Tissue Remedial Therapy approaching the end of a course. I knew from the beginning that I’m in a great learning environment.

The school has been recommended to me by the team of osteopaths I work with. Very knowledgeable and supportive along the course. Plenty of opportunities to work at the students clinic too. Great tutors, great atmosphere.

Highly recommend to everyone wanting to begin their career in soft tissue therapy!


Completed the 1 day introduction course at the weekend. The quality of this course cannot be underestimated and the amount of hands on time was great, giving us a great insight into what the diploma has to offer. 

The Tutors were exceptional, giving us all great feedback throughout the day and putting any nerves at ease.

I shall be signing up for the L5 Diploma for February!!


Fantastic course to be on. All the tutors are incredibly knowledgeable and supportive, couldn’t recommend highly enough.


I started training with the NLSSM back in mid-2020 and now approach the end of the course.

From start to finish, the course has been fun, enjoyable, challenging and incredibly rewarding. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and their passion for Sports Massage and Remedial Therapy is infectious! The support throughout has been exceptional, with help always to hand if needed. The NLSSM instructors create a very relaxed, open and cohesive environment with each session being an absolute pleasure to attend. The course I attended happened to fall throughout the pandemic and credit is due to the NLSSM for steering my class throughout these unprecedented times, ensuring constant communication and clarity throughout.

I cannot speak more highly of the NLSSM. I have learnt so much and now I am excited to continue developing my skills and knowledge as a therapist. I highly recommend the NLSSM to anyone considering a qualification in Sports Massage and Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy.


I’ve just completed the one day introductory massage course and was very impressed by the set up and tutelage, so much so that I’ve decided to carry on to the level 5 diploma.


I started my course during lockdown and NLSSM made the course via zoom so enjoyable and professional even though we had never met each other.

The tutors and management are amazing, they are there for you every step of the way whether it be course work or personal life issues. The support is beyond anything I have ever experienced before.

Thank you!


Popped into one of NLSSM’s student clinics, I’ll definitely be back! Amazing treatment from one of their students.


I completed the introductory course and really enjoyed it. The tutors were great; really welcoming, friendly and very clear and thorough in their explanations and demonstrations. They offered encouragement and support throughout. The structure was easy to follow and understand.


Great place for those with out much money to get great treatment. Friendly professional affordable. Thank you for being there.


I started studying at NLSSM in 2019. The course and classes were engaging, exceptional, challenging and fun and has given me the confidence to be a competent therapist. All the tutors were excellent and the teaching was high quality, with different methods of teaching, throughout the course. I could not recommend it more.

The tutors were very understanding of my needs and spent time, to ensure you felt confident even in a one to one setting. I would recommend NLSSM to anyone interested in pursuing a future career in sports massage.


I’ve trained at a number of schools for my various qualifications, culminating most recently in my Level 5 in Sports Massage & Remedial Soft Tissue Therapy. I researched other training providers but chose NLSSM as it seemed the most professional in its approach and publicly has the most active and supportive graduate community, which was important to me as whilst training is essential having a go to group when working is more so.

The course started well and then Covid arrived! But the NLSSM team got to grips with the situation quickly, and despite all the challenges I completed my training only a month or so later than originally anticipated. The tutors were knowledgeable, and happy to share more than just topics from the curriculum, keeping the subject matter relevant to the real world. The shift to online learning was very well managed, and in fact some of it I hope will be kept as I feel it really added to the depth of learning that I enjoyed.

Students ranged from the young to the old, some with no experience and some with years of experience, but the pace was well set and the disparity of knowledge well handled. Having now graduated I have made some lifelong friends from the course, and am enjoying the community of NLSSM graduates spread nationwide and further afield. I’d be happy to speak to anyone considering doing this course to answer any questions and assuage any doubts they might have, as this was the best training school I have attended.
