Meet your Instructor
Hi! I'm Eryn (she/her). I've been a professional healer for more than 20 years, the last 11 as a registered massage therapist. The past 8 years I've focused almost exclusively on people going through breast and chest surgery and find this an exceedingly beautiful demographic to work with. I love to teach collaborative certification courses, as well as work with my one-on-one clients.Learn More
