Take the fear away and safely treat people diagnosed with cancer!

We are super thrilled to launch our Oncology Certification Program for you, the Health Care Providers.

First, find out if this modality is for you, with signing up for this one day course, Fundamentals of Oncology Level 1 and then Level  2, Oncology of Soft Tissue Manipulation. Level 2 is a three-day course.  Once you have completed and passed both levels you become an SFH Oncology Certified therapist.

Our Fundamentals of Oncology Level 1 course is designed to take the fear and misunderstanding out of providing soft tissue manipulations to individuals who have had a cancer diagnosis or are actively affected by cancer. Fundamentals of Oncology offers a service for the fast-growing need to train health care providers to provide clients with ongoing and post-treatment soft-tissue care. This path will give you the foundation to support oncology patients and cancer survivors through hands-on support confidently.

What you accomplish and acquire from taking this course?


You will become confident in knowing more about what precautions and adaptations are required to carry out a safe treatment and when to refer out cancer patients.

Learn the enhanced knowledge of common oncology terminology, oncology treatment protocols, and side effects to enable effective communication with clients and other health care professionals.

A way to explain to patients and colleagues the research-based benefits of oncology soft-tissue manipulations (and what claims we can not make).

A list of educational and service-based resources for both you and your cancer diagnosed patients.


Proof of Attendance versus Certification

  1. Students complete our classes and receive our “proof of attendance”. They still receive the allotted amount of credits specified by their association and do not need to complete an exam.
  2. Students complete our “Certification” after they successfully write our exam.  If they pass all exams required (if more than one), then they will receive a final SFH certificate stating that they completed all requirements to be a “Certified Therapist”.

SFH Certification requirements (as of 2020)  

  1. Students must be present for the whole duration of the course length to become certified.  
  2. Students must participate and safely execute all hands-on components of the course.  
  3. Students must pass the final written exam. 

Please note that the instructors have the right to ask the students to execute any hands-on component at any time. Refusal will deny you from the exam process and, subsequently, your certification.  

SFH instructors hold the right to refuse students from writing the final exam if they feel that the participant cannot safely perform the material despite adequate training.  

Upon class Completion:  

You will receive an email, including an electronic version of your proof of attendance. Upon registration, make sure you enter your information correctly to ensure this happens. We collect your email address, first name and last name (please give us the name you wish to have on your proof of attendance).  

Upon Certificate Completion:  

You will receive an email that includes an electronic version of your certificate and instructions on how to promote your new skill set and service. It can take up to three weeks to receive this email. When registering, please make sure you enter your information correctly. We will require an email address, first name and last name (please give us the name you wish to have printed on your certificate).   

We will directly submit your certificate to the following associations: MTAA, CMMOTA, CRMTA, & NHPC.  

 Pre-purchased official certifications will be mailed to you three weeks after you have passed the exam. Please do not call the office to find out your results.

I have taken numerous continuing education courses over the years, both massage and cupping, and by far Geri’s Dynamic Cupping and Massage Therapy course is the best! The techniques are relevant and have made such a difference in my practice. I would take any course that Geri offers.
