SFH Orthopedic Massage Certification

Many Massage Therapists took SFH Orthopedic Massage for a Reason.

People go to school to become massage therapists, learn how to massage, relax clients, and help them with musculoskeletal conditions. Although two years of school seem like a long time, and you might feel that you know a lot once you graduate, please do not take it the wrong way, but it is the beginning of your learning journey. It takes years for someone to perfect their skills and be good at them. The next step is to master what you learned in school with many hours of practice and a hundred clients later.   Orthopedic Massage is the next great course for the therapists who want to master soft tissue manipulation, palpation, and connection with the musculoskeletal system. 

In signing up for this program, expect to learn more than 70 techniques. The price of this course also includes the prerequisite online Effective Tissue Manipulation course required before joining the in-person course.


You will learn:

  • How to correctly identify muscles before treatment
  • How to massage with a plan and deliver positive, long-lasting results for your clients
  • A wide range of new techniques and considerations, including all major muscle groups
  • How to decompress joints, realign and release tight muscles

We organized the certification content by body sections that can benefit from Orthopedic Massage treatments. If taking the full Certification is not for you now, we have bundled the courses to be more appealing with a busy schedule. Please review the Orthopedic course offerings below!
