Student Review – Paula McElwee

I completed the Level 3 Sports Massage Therapy Course with Uni Learning in Belfast in January 2022. I am a Registered Dietitian but wished to branch out to gain experience and knowledge in a different field.

I have played and enjoyed sports from the age of 4 – whether it be camogie, ladies football, the gym or more recently CrossFit. I found great benefit in my recovery physically and mentally after attending local Sports Massage Therapists over the last number of years and during COVID-19 I decided it would be great to do something extra as well as working as a Dietitian.

The course is very well run.  I really enjoyed the practical element. John has fantastic knowledge and helped us try and visualise the muscle positions / compartments, tendons and ligaments under the skin of different areas to help improve our knowledge on where to massage. We also received good support on the examination and coursework element.

I really enjoyed it and set up an Instagram and Facebook page to promote my business locally. I have been very lucky to get great feedback from my clients and established a regular client base. I am grateful to John and all at Uni Learning for helping me achieve my Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage Therapy.

Thanks so much to the tutors John and Harry. I would, and already have, recommended Uni Learning to others. :-)”
