Kinetic Massage: Improve Mobility and Alleviate Joint Pain!

What is SFH Kinetic Massage?

Kinetic massage therapy places a strong emphasis on the health of joints and their surrounding tissues. This is achieved by targeting the muscles and soft tissues surrounding the joint, which are crucial in supporting and stabilizing it. By releasing tension and softening adhesions in these tissues, kinetic massage can help to reduce pain and improve joint mobility, flexibility, and range of motion.

If you’re looking to maximize the effectiveness of your treatments for challenging conditions, incorporating Kinetic Massage techniques and methods can be a great option. Your clients may notice a significant improvement in their symptoms and overall joint health. With its focus on releasing tension and improving mobility, Kinetic Massage can be a valuable tool for addressing a wide range of joint-related issues.

What Distinguishes “proof of attendance” from “Certification”?

Upon completion of our courses, students receive “proof of attendance”, which entitles them to the designated credits approved by their association. There’s no need to take an exam for getting continued education credits.

In contrast, students have the option to obtain certification by passing our exam. Upon passing all required exams, they’ll receive an SFH certificate that acknowledges they have met all the necessary requirements to become a “Certified Therapist.” Some insurance companies do require certification for coverage.  It is recommended that you verify with your insurance provider to determine their criteria.  

Looking for CEUS Only

If you’re solely interested in obtaining CEUs, attending the class will suffice as you’ll be granted credits and digital evidence of attendance.
