Students must be present for the whole duration of the course length to become certified.
Students must participate and safely execute all hands-on components of the course.
In addition, students must pass the final written exam.
Please note that the instructors have the right to ask the students to execute any hands-on component at any time. Refusal will deny you from the exam process and, subsequently, your certification.
SFH instructors hold the right to refuse students from writing the final exam if they feel that they cannot safely perform the material despite adequate training.
Students complete our courses and receive our “proof of attendance”. They still receive the allotted amount of credits specified by their association and do not need to complete an exam.
Students complete our “Certification” after they successfully write our exam. If they pass all exams required (if more than one), then they will receive a final SFH certificate stating that they completed all requirements to be a “Certified Therapist”.
No, we are not a registered massage school, we are a continuing education institution. Although, we offer training, upgrading in continuing education for practicing massage therapists and other health care practitioners.
Both courses provide an abundance of hands-on practical techniques. The online/in-person Dynamic Cupping Course is the foundation, providing therapists with knowledge of safeties, precautions and contraindications. In the Advanced Cupping Course, therapists will learn new advanced techniques not taught in SFH Dynamic Cupping, conducted in a side-lying position.
Similarities are evident with the approach between the two certifications. The big difference is that Kinetic Massage emphasizes movement techniques that help restore the loss of movement range of the major joints that typically suffer the greatest restrictions: Neck, Shoulder, Hip. SFH Orthopedic Massage emphasizes muscle detail techniques, incorporating muscle base, muscle scooping and vector techniques. Both Certifications are incredibly applicable in your daily practice with all your clients despite the client’s reason for consulting.
