Linda Hoppe, Bkin, TRP, MT
I am Linda Hoppe, the Proud Owner, CEO, and co-founder of Seminars for Health Inc, the Western Canada leader in Massage Therapy, Advanced online and in-person Education. I have utilized my 30+ years of experience treating, instructing, curriculum design, and course development to acquire the best faculty to develop courses exclusive to Seminars for Health.
I grew up in a small French town in Quebec with my 2 brothers and 2 sisters and hard-working parents who believed in education and playing outside. With my parent’s encouragement, I graduated as a physiotherapy technician, discovering a new passion for treating acute care patients practicing in local hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes in Quebec, Montreal, and Guadalajara, Spain. For the love of traveling and learning languages, I moved to Calgary in 1989, the city of opportunities and the bright future I now call home. Went back to school to become a Massage Therapist graduating from Mount Royal College, and then completed a kinesiology degree at the University of Calgary, wanting more education to support my new career as a faculty member of Mount Royal university. In 1999, I met Chris, fell in love, and we married and now have 2 wonderful children, Dominique and Mika. After many years of instructing massage therapy, I became passionate about elevating the level of education in the profession in Alberta. I started Seminars for Health with this goal in mind whilst Chris and I parented our children.
Passionately invested in bettering my profession, I was determined to do whatever I could to serve the public better, ensuring everyone seeking massage therapy would get the best treatment they could and eventually elevate the massage therapy industry. I believe in education; my mother ensured that by modeling hard work and being a teacher. As the CEO of Seminars for Health, I have found intelligent, educated, passionate, and experienced instructors who helped in the incredible development and instruction of 40 unique courses and certification programs. I take special pride in you becoming certified with us. You showcasing your SFH Certification means that you can safely and proficiently apply your new skill learned in helping your clients with this new modality. Certification will instill confidence in the clients you treat.
Our faculty and I have developed the following programs. SFH Orthopedic Massage, SFH Kinetic Massage in-person and online, SFH-Assisted Stretching Therapy online, SFH Oncology Massage, SFH Intraoral TMJ, Client Retention Strategies, Holistic Nutrition Online, and Target Muscle Release Online Certification. In addition, I have published and created Dynamic Muscle Base, Kinetic Method principles, and SFH Orthopedic Massage Handbook. I am proud to say I was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2020 at the USA’s World Massage Festival.
I am looking forward to seeing you in the classroom.
