    I have absolutely loved every second of doing the Sports Massage course through Hfpa. I have wanted to do something like this for so long especially after a long international career in both hockey and water polo. There was always a need and desire to help myself and fellow teammates professionally with sports massage but never had the perfect platform to achieve a qualification for it up until now with Hfpa. Dr Leoni Bosch, our lecturer, is so insightful and is always a message away for help and guidance. I am truly grateful to Hfpa and the opportunity to grow my knowledge and pursue my passions.
    Thanks so much again Hfpa!
