April 8 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm PDT


In the United States, many massage practitioners often omit breast massage from their full body sessions, a practice that differs from the European standard of care. The breasts, however, play a vital role in the energetic female body, in sexual pleasure, and in generating total nourishment for infants. This course offers insights into breast health and therapeutic breast massage.

What You'll Learn:

Anatomy and Physiology: Explore the intricacies of breast tissue, gaining a deeper understanding of its structure and function.

Contraindications and Pathology: Learn when and how to approach breast massage, and understand potential health concerns.

Normalizing Therapeutic Touch: Discover the significance of incorporating breast massage into your practice, promoting holistic well-being.

Informed Consent: Understand the importance of obtaining informed consent from clients and how to navigate the necessary release forms.

Techniques and Approaches: Master sidelying and semi-reclining approaches to provide a comfortable and effective breast massage experience.

Addressing Common Breast Concerns:

  • Lactation Issues: Gain insights into supporting lactating individuals with massage techniques.
  • Clogged Ducts: Learn effective methods to address and alleviate clogged ducts.
  • Scar Tissue Management: Explore approaches for managing scar tissue resulting from breast reduction or enhancement surgeries.
  • Self Breast Massage: Empower your clients and yourself by practicing and teaching self-massage techniques for breast health.

Note about breast massage in class: If you feel inhibited, ashamed, or insecure about touching one’s own or others’ breasts, you’re not alone! In this class, we’ll cultivate an environment of respect and curiosity about these potent glands that have the capacity to provide a complete food specifically designed for each individual baby. We will acknowledge both our anxiety and enthusiasm. Come discover the comfort and relief that comes of honoring breasts with massage!  We will practice self-breast massage, draped or clothed,  as well as  practice undraped directly on skin. There is the option to work through T-shirt or thin breast drape if undraping in class setting is not comfortable for you.

Please Note: This course does not cover techniques for individuals undergoing cancer treatment, mastectomy, or lymphectomy recovery. It focuses on promoting breast health and well-being.

Don't miss the opportunity to expand your knowledge and offer a more holistic approach to wellness in your practice!
