Take the fear away of safely treating people diagnosed with cancer by taking this 1 day Online Course!

Find out if this modality is for you, join us for Level 1 online from the comfort of your own home! Fundamentals of Oncology Level 1 is fully interactive, while live streaming with our instructor and course creator. You can sign up for Level  2, Oncology of Soft Tissue Manipulation, a three-day in-class course taken once you have successfully completed the online Level 1.  Once you have completed and passed both levels and the exam 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.

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.
