Athletes' Angels logo


Here at Athletes' Angels there is growing demand for physiotherapists / sports therapists to become involved with major expeditions and this is an area we are very excited to be working in.  We have therefore teamed up with Glenmore Lodge, Aviemore to bring you a unique new course which will teach a variety of unusual skills which would come in useful in a wide range of expedition settings.  We are thrilled to be bringing you top wilderness expertise from our tutors who are all vastly capable in this field.  You can see the full programme and information about the tutors here.  

The course is phenomenal value at just £290 for 2 days which includes accommodation and food at Glenmore Lodge, Aviemore.  This is a fantastic opportunity for therapists to increase their skill sets and I advise those who can to come along and learn from the team.  Please email Caroline on to find out more.  If you wish to secure a place, please send a cheque for £290 to Athletes' Angels Courses, Morven, Taybridge Road, Aberfeldy, PH15 2BH.


We still have places for therapists on our 2-weekend massage course which will be running in conjunction with Scottish Massage Schools in October and November of this year.  This course will introduce the basic Swedish massage skills (effleurage, petrissage, frictions, tapotement and their uses on the whole body) in weekend one before moving on to remedial / sports massage techniques in weekend two (myofascial release, trigger pointing, neuromuscular techniques).  We will show you the skills to enable you to start using massage in your daily practice and appropriate skills for using at events.  We will also show you ways of protecting yourself while working.  

The course costs just £400 for 2 weekends and takes place on 8/9th October and 12/13th November 2011 in Edinburgh.  Please email Caroline for more info and to find out how to secure a place.  Learning these valuable skills will contribute towards that all important CPD so it's definitely worth checking out.


We are at the end of a very busy spell (phew!) but there are still more events to come!  We still need therapists for a couple of events this year:

Oxfam Trailtrekker Ireland (10th/11th September) - for further info see here
Loch Ness Marathon (2nd October) - for further info see here

Please email Caroline if you are interested in working at either of those events.
