Meet Your Instructor

Eryn Price RMT has been working in the healing arts for almost 25 years, and has far exceeded her "10,000 hours" of hands-on contact with breast and chest surgery patients.

She is absolutely passionate about bringing resources to people who have previously been "invisible' in society. 

As Founder of The Mastectomy Guide, a modern purpose-driven business with a social and ethical conscience, she's now able to touch lives far and wide of both patients and therapists alike, which brings her great joy and satisfaction.

What are you going to learn in this training program?

Our comprehensive massage therapy training for breast & chest surgery will teach you key skills to understand how to offer therapeutic breast massage, post-surgical rehab and how to work with post-op complications.

We value interactive and experiential learning, so you not only learn valuable theory but also get an experience in your body, group discussions plus hands-on skills, for true mind-body learning.

We have one program divided into 3 levels.  Each level is built upon the last, so by the time you've completed all 3 levels you will have gained a "3D" understanding of:

  • The big picture of breast and chest surgery in North America
  • The physical, mental/emotional and spiritual state of many breast/chest surgery patients
  • How to give an ethical and professional therapeutic breast massage
  • 18 different types of breast/chest surgery, including breast cancer, trans/non-binary gender-affirming top surgery and elective breast surgery
  • Stages of healing their body goes through, and what techniques are appropriate for you to use at each stage
  • The top 10 post-op complications and what you can and cannot safely work with 
  • Evidence-informed massage therapy best practices, with the latest research into techniques, surgical procedures and stages of healing
  • Combining intuition and mindfulness for true human-centric care
  • Inclusivity and diversity in action as you support people going through major life transitions
