The LSSM began in 1989 following the publication of the first ever book on Sports Massage, written by Mel Cash, and has remained the pioneer and leader of the profession ever since. Mel is regarded as the World’s leading authority on Sports Massage and Soft Tissue Therapy with four international renowned textbooks to his credit and he runs the LSSM with great passion. Together with his team of the most talented therapists/tutors in the country we train new therapists to achieve success through a range of clinical skills and knowledge that best meet the needs of clients from all walks of life and with a wide range of injury problems.
If you want a stimulating and rewarding lifetime career helping people overcome injury and improve their physical wellbeing, then LSSM has to be the best place to start your journey
