Washington Sports Massage Team
About the Washington Sports Massage Team
The WSMT provides massage at many sports events in Washington State such as the Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic (STP), the Seattle Marathon, Oktoberfest Marathon and other non-sporting events like Bumbershoot. The team is made up of Licensed Massage Practitioners who have advanced training through our calibration training in sports massage. Our sports massage team members are individually licensed in Washington State and individually insured for liability.
Our team was established back in 1987. We are a team of 80+ therapists. Over the past 10 years, we have averaged about 28-33 events per year. In order to be on the team, each therapist must have a minimum of 12 hours of sports massage training. We hold sports massage calibration courses which team therapists must attend every two years. It is during these classes we make sure everyone is on the same page, working on our techniques, making sure we are aware of special medical conditions so we can refer to the first aid tent, and getting caught up on anything new in the sports massage field.
