As the pioneer of Soft Tissue Therapy and leader of the industry we are continually developing our training to better meet the needs of our clients. Through this journey we have learned that clinical success involves more than just the individual techniques we use. So Soft Tissue Therapy is an approach to musculoskeletal care and not a stand alone set of manual techniques.
Soft Tissue Therapy is a Person Centred Approach to the Assessment, Treatment and Rehabilitation of minor and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and pain.
Soft Tissue Therapy is an interplay between Therapeutic Alliance, Hands-on techniques and Movement-based Rehabilitation all within a Biopsychosocial Framework of care.
Although this has always been an underlying concept behind the ISRM training programme we have now formalised it with three newly featured topics of Underpinning Theory.
The successful student will receive diplomas from LSSM, ISRM and BTEC. The qualification is recognised nationally and in some other countries as well. It enables therapists to practice independently as a professional Soft Tissue Therapist and obtain full Professional Indemnity insurance. It also entitles you to become a full member of ISRM as well as other professional bodies.

☆☆☆☆☆ - review for Upgrade to Soft Tissue Therapy, BTEC Level 5 Course
“I wanted to say thank you for the opportunity to do this upgrade course and for making it accessible. I’m really loving it. I’m finding it really inspiring and at a point in my career when I was really questioning if I wanted to carry with massage, it is giving me more motivation. I loved learning about the positional release yesterday and some of the other techniques I learned made me feel inspired again as I said” Melanie – London
