I just finished the SFH Kinetic Massage Certification and I wish I had known of this fantastic approach earlier on in my career. I incorporated it into my practice over the last week and my hands no longer hurt. I feel not only engaged with the tissues but also with the massage treatment. It is great to feel and see change right on the table without hurting or providing pain. My clients really enjoy my new techniques yet still feel relaxed within the treatment. I tried this on three new clients and they all rebooked. Thanks, SFH for your efforts to elevate this profession. I feel proud to be a massage therapist.


The instructors are amazing!! I just learnt Effective Tissue Manipulation Online. They make it easy to learn virtually with visuals and you can learn at your own pace. I'm excited to continue my education!! Thank you!!

SFH offers the best continuing education courses and certifications. I use the techniques that I have learned in the courses everyday in my practice to help and educate my clients. They have been a game changer and it has taken my practice to another level! I highly recommend any RMT looking for CE credits to take SFH classes!


Great experience with SFH! The Dynamic Cupping course and instructors were incredible. Valuable indeed! Highly recommended. Can't wait to take the next course

Jillian Parent

Cupping has completely changed my practice! I am so grateful for this incredible course and practice you have put together. I do cupping on 99% of my clients now. A couple of my clients that have chronic conditions were actually in tears about what a difference the cupping has made!! Thank you thank you!! I can’t wait to take many more courses from you!!
