I think Seminars for Health is a game changer for all of us. Linda is very passionate about our industry and I thank her tremendously for filling this much needed void. I look forward to many more courses with this fabulous team.

I have been practicing for over 20 years and by far the SFH Dynamic Cupping course is the best course that I have taken. Looking forward to more quality courses with Seminars for Health!

The depth and quality of Pregnancy and Postnatal Massage is phenomenal. Seminars for Health is not only passionate and knowledgable, but also have great instructors.

I have finished the first few courses of SFH Orthopedic Massage Certification and my clients can all feel the difference. Seminars for Health...where were you all these years?

I learned TMJ massage at school but not at this level of depth. My fingers feel comfortable navigating and my clients are at ease receiving this precise and often vulnerable work. Mara is a gifted instructor and is an expert with this material.

I took SFH Orthopedic Massage Certification as a massage student with Linda and my hands changed for the better. My student clinic clients would ask me why my techniques and touch were so much different than the others. One client who had daily headaches for 20+ years is mostly headache free now and followed me into my own practice since graduating.

I just completed the Online Kinetic Massage of the Hip course and I’m pleased with how the course was laid out. It was very informative and easy to understand. I liked how I could rewatch the videos as many times as needed while performing the techniques, I feel it made understanding the course much easier.

Fascial Decompression with Denny is AMAZING. I so wish that I took this course earlier in my career. I cannot believe the difference it has made with clients who live with persistent pain.

Linda, I'd just like to tell you that it was a great weekend. It's been a while since I've taken a course and I feel more motivated and excited to work than I have been for quite a while. Already, these new techniques, along with my existing approach, are yielding effective results.
