ACE VacuTherapies Mastectomy and Breast Health Institute – In-Person Workshop

In this amazing and intensive workshop, we will go deeper into working with Breast health, Breast lymphatic drainage, Lymphedema post-breast surgery, and so much more. We will be supporting women’s breast health, pre and post-surgery. We have volunteers to work with, so you will have a hands-on approach to learning how to help the population of people who have had health issues with breast and surrounding tissue. This class is very intensive and can be very emotional for both client and therapist.

Educator Info

  • Joined ACE in 2018


I have been interested in the power of touch most of my life, but I worked in the trade industry as a welder, machinist, and maintenance mechanic. In 2012 I made a 180 degree career change and found massage therapy, which has become an absolute passion. After being licensed in January 2014, I opened a private practice specializing in post-surgery, chronic pain, scars, burns, breast cancer, and any medical massage I could be trained in.

I met Anita Shannon at a trade show and immediately began taking continuing education courses with ACE.  After going through Levels 1 & 2, breast health intensive with Anita J. Shannon, and Lymph/cupping with Beth-Ellen Zang, and following Anita to classes and trade shows, Anita gave me the opportunity to teach. I look forward to inspiring and helping therapists grow in cupping therapies.
