INTEGRITY & TRAINING
The Esoteric Breast Massage is practised by extensively
trained female practitioners, who are members of
the Esoteric Practitioners Association (EPA)*.
A vital aspect of the quality and care represented by EBM practitioners is that they are committed to ongoing self-development and a way of living that puts into practice self-nurturing and stillness.
The EBM practitioners undergo training that includes pre-requisite self-healing, study in anatomy, physiology & nutrition, training and regular review with EBM focalised trainers plus a minimum of 100 practice hours.
Once accredited, practitioners are required to attend ongoing professional development through education, regular professional practice meetings and annual review for re-accreditation.
Furthermore, a vital aspect of the quality and consistency of care represented by EBM practitioners is that they are committed to ongoing self-development and a way of living that puts into practice the fundamental principles of the modality, such as self-nurturing and stillness.
This multi-faceted approach to the EBM training program ensures our practitioners are developed in their confidence, integrity and sensitivity to conduct treatments professionally, and equally confident to share and inspire the practical steps for women to restore the qualities of femaleness (stillness) in their own lives.
*The Esoteric Practitioners Association (EPA) is the body for the practice of Universal Medicine Therapies. The EPA represents a standard of professionalism and integrity which is first and foremost energetic, meaning that practitioners choosing to meet the EPA standards do so in the understanding that it is not only their professional behaviour, but also the whole way they live, that contribute to and make up the quality they offer in treatments. All EBM practitioners abide by the EPA Code of Ethics and Conduct.
The provision of complementary health options in combination with appropriate medical care can empower women to feel a fulsome support in the ongoing development of their wellbeing and self-care, as evidenced by the one third of all adults who choose complementary therapies as part of an overall healthcare plan.*
We are committed to providing the highest level complementary health care options to women in the field of body awareness and breast care.
We make very clear that the EBM is not a replacement for any kind of medical treatment, and emphatically recommend that women who are concerned about their breast health (or their health in general) see their GP or appropriate medical specialist.

Campaigns denigrating the role of complementary health practices are not new. In the 1800s the Chiropractic profession was labelled a ‘cult’ by the medical establishment and it was only in the 1980s that this was recognised as deliberate anti-competitive behaviour.
The Esoteric Breast Massage has not been immune to similar disinformation campaigns which ultimately attempt to remove informed choice in women and men’s healthcare.
We trust the information provided on this website supports an educated understanding of the Esoteric Breast Massage and the broader remit of breast care and women’s well-being that are at the heart of Foundational Breast Care’s message.
