Welcome to our Mentorship and Training Academy for Breast, Chest and Oncology Massage!

We are dedicated to empowering massage therapists like you to take your practice to the next level, while filling a vital gap in healthcare, all while under the close guidance of a mentor and supportive community.

If you're ready to enhance your skills, build confidence, and make a real impact¬†for your clients and local community, you're in the right place! ūüíę

Question for you:

If these 4 types of mastectomy clients walked into your treatment room, would you know what to do?

The variances in surgeries and what people go through is huge, and you may not currently know what type of surgery is what. That's why were are here, so you CAN know what to do without feeling like an impostor.

One of our Mentorship Academy students said: "You gave all of us who were lost and fumbling a place to land. And through all this we can extend the reach to so many people."

So Many Benefits to Supporting Specific Populations!

When you learn to support women's health, trans health and oncology patients with pre- and post-op massage, you are tapping into a population who:

  • want AND NEEDS a light touch
  • are so grateful for your support
  • offer infinite variety in presentations

No more "body factories" where you are grinding out massage to endless necks and backs, doing the same thing over and over again.

Instead, you can feel educated, empowered and confident as a massage therapist with treating a fascinating population going through major life experiences.

As one mentee put it: "There is so much variance in this work that it’s impossible to get bored. And I’m excited that it’s going to allow me more longevity in my career."

 

What people are saying...

"This mentorship is exactly what I needed to get this going and really drive the change in my practice. So THANK YOU!!! ūüíēūüĎŹūüŹľ You are changing the lives of us RMTs, and all the women we are lucky enough to support through this work."

Meet Your Mentor

Hi! I'm Eryn ūüėÉūü¶č

I've been working in the healing arts for almost 25 years, the last 13 dedicated to massage therapy. I got my "10,000+ hours" of hands-on treatment with breast and chest surgery patients years ago, so I'm now helping other people open their practice to this very unique and beautiful population.

I've now trained about 375 therapists across 3 countries in my professional training programs, and educated many hundreds more through educational events.

I find working with people going through breast cancer an extremely meaningful career path, one that allows us to touch the human spirit at a very vulnerable time of life.  

It is also a population that needs and appreciates a light touch, so it's a good body saver - something I desperately needed after facing unrelenting chronic pain and burnout just a few years into my massage therapy career.

Pivoting my practice to support people going through cancer treatments and related surgeries has provided incredible inspiration, purpose and passion in my work, and gotten me out of chronic pain as well.

I'm excited to share this path with you, so you can have a meaningful and sustainable career!

Can't wait to see you inside¬†the¬†Academy! ūüíēūüėÉ
