About Your Tutor(s)

Tamara Howard

Sports Massage Tutor

I completed both my iTEC Levels 3 & 4 in Sports & Remedial Massage Therapy at the Academy in 2018 and have gone on to do further CPD courses here to enhance my ’toolbox’ as a Therapist.  The exceptional level of training I received, as well as the ongoing support, has enabled me to build a successful business in a short space of time.

It’s an honour to be teaching a subject that I love and am so passionate about, to the high standard set by the Academy, and being part of other peoples journey into the industry.


I have been meaning to get in touch all week to say how much I enjoyed the Trigger Point Course last week.  Well done Cotswold Academy for making it all feel so welcoming and "normal" as  possible in these mad times we are living in.  I learnt so much and really enjoyed it too, and it was great to meet some lovely people and learn from them as well. As always at CA it was great teaching but lots of laughs along the way - very important!

Please can you tell Chris that I have just had someone who came in saying they had been diagnosed (over Zoom) by doc with Achilles tendonitis and I was not convinced it was the problem.   I did trigger pointing on his gastrocnemius and soleus and on up into the hamstrings and he went out like a new man!  So HUGE THANKS to T and Chris for their expert tuition - it felt so good sending out a happy customer!
