What is 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, which will directly affect the tone of the supporting muscles. Contrarily, restore the muscles to their normal tone and the joints will align and decompress. Working on both the muscles and the joint achieves the 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 approaches. Your clients will feel the difference.
The Benefits of SFH Kinetic Massage
- Get proven lasting results by incorporating joint mobility and soft tissue manipulations.
- Lengthen your career with improved body mechanics.
- Dramatically change your client’s response to treatment.
- Return your clients’ joint functional mobility to normal

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.
