In this 2-day class, students will learn massage of the ribcage, chest, and breasts, intended to support healthy breathing and overall wellness. This massage may benefit clients experiencing musculoskeletal neck, chest and shoulder related weakness or injuries, and also people with non-cancerous, breast tissue-related conditions such as menstrual-related tenderness, fibrocystic breast tissue, breast augmentation, breast reduction, gender transformation mastectomy, and other non-cancerous breast conditions. Students will learn a simple and effective routine for incorporating the male and female chest wall and breast tissue into full body massage, while meeting the 16 hour WA State CE requirement for offering breast and chest massage work (WAC 246-830-555). This class also satisfies 3 of the 4-hour Washington State CE requirement for ethics.
This particular class is open to both male and female LMTs (depending on student sign-up, of course; if only female students sign-up, the class will be all female. This class will be small: maximum of 6 students.
Instructor's Massage License Number:
My name is Lynna Dunn Fuller, and I am a licensed massage therapist and owner of Jubilee Family Massage. I am a 2008 Brenneke School of Massage graduate, specializing in massage that decreases pain and increases function (in the emotional as well as the physical realms).
Having been a student of Barbara Helynn Heard since my massage school days, and having been trained and mentored by her to do and teach breast and chest work in WA state, I knew that I wanted to help train others to do this work when she announced her retirement from teaching, early in 2021. A long and much-respected massage therapist and instructor, Barbara was a key voice in the 2015-2016 discussions to define what became “WAC 246-830-555 Breast Massage,” in order to keep the breast/chest area within scope of practice for WA State LMTs. In November of 2021, I assisted Barbara in teaching her final breast and chest massage class in Seattle. In March of 2022, I taught my first solo class, based on Barbara's work, in my home studio in Bellingham. It was a wonderful success, and I look forward to continuing to train others in this amazing and healing work.
