Introducing, Back Jam! Only $175 to study with some of the best in the industry!

The fourth event in a series of workshops focused on a single region of the body. You can also purchase the Shoulder, Hip, and Neck Jam recordings which are now home study courses.

Oftentimes, workshops go over so many different topics and techniques that we leave feeling overwhelmed. That's why we created the Jam series; we wanted to keep these workshops hyper-focused so that you leave feeling empowered and inspired. We've gathered an all-star cast of industry leaders to facilitate these workshops TOGETHER - no need to attend 13 different workshops to learn 13 different techniques! Register for Back Jam today to take your knowledge of the back to the next level.

We hope this event grows and will continue for years to come. We look forward to seeing you and hearing your questions, answers, and insights.

History in the making

No one person has all the answers, not even us. No one technique or approach is the do-all be-all, and we want to help you find teachers, classes, and mentoring so you can grow and keep growing.

We are excited about all the teachers who are collaborating to bring you The Massage Mentor Insititute. You will be able to watch whatever you miss there and have access to the recording of your purchased JAM Events. We are also excited to have amazing students joining us for the series!

Shout out to Til Luchau

Til was supportive as I put together The Massage Mentor Institute and began cultivating the idea for thes JAM event two years ago. He has been a mentor to The Mentor and has been a steady source of inspiration. He saw something in my ideas and encouraged me to continue my journey with zest and in my own unique way. 

Thank you Til — The Massage Mentor
