Become Certified as an SFH Kinetic Massage Therapist
SFH Kinetic Massage
Kinetic Massage provides you with effective techniques using both joint movements and massage strokes. Clinical and Sport Massage Therapists can no longer separate muscle tissue manipulation without including its articulations. Focus on your client’s joint mobility, and this will directly affect the tone of the supporting muscles. Contrarily, restore the muscles to its normal tone and the joints will align and decompress. Working on both the muscles and the joint achieves results that your clients are wanting.
The typical range of movement has become restricted in all planes. The human body was born to move and craves a full range of motion. Access to muscles, joints and muscle junction is best achieved with a dynamic approach. Kinetic Massage Certification will teach you skills to get your clients to move the way their bodies were intended to, all while preserving your body mechanics. By understanding anatomy and correct positioning, your clients will return with the confidence that they are secure and achieving results.
Optimally treat stubborn conditions with Kinetic Massage techniques and approach. Your clients will feel the difference.

I loved this course. I found the seminars reminded me of previous anatomy lessons and very specific techniques to target these areas. I also found the course was evidence-based and taught extremely well. I would highly recommend Seminars for Health, particularly the Advanced Orthopedic Massage Certification Program!
