Keen to work with athletes on injury prevention and recovery, Hayden Mitchell has enjoyed the practical nature of the Diploma of Remedial Massage.
Diploma of Remedial Massage
It’s very rewarding to help someone to alleviate their pain and improve their range of motion.
I chose to study at RMIT for its hand-on approach to teaching.
I’m a hands-on learner so the practical nature of the Diploma of Remedial Massage appealed to me, the University was also highly recommended by family and friends.
I am very interested with how the human body works. Particularly when someone suffers an injury.
I enjoy being able to assist an individual with their muscle dysfunction or injury and effectively assess and treat them. It’s very rewarding to help someone to alleviate their pain and improve their range of motion.
Highlights of the course have been; completing placement with the AFL academy and basketball academy; developing an understanding of the human body, particularly the muscular system; and seeing clients leave happy and impressed after a treatment.
My advice to other students would be to look after yourself and maintain a healthy lifestyle, the course can be physically challenging.
Next year, I hope to continue studying in the Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy which will further develop my practical skills and knowledge of the human body.
Looking further into the future I would like to open up my own Myotherapy clinic, specialising in sporting injuries and working with athletes.
