Diane Matkowski, aka The Massage Mentor, has been a massage therapist and business owner for over 25 years. Diane built a practice, now home to ten successful massage therapists. The business is a seven-time award-winning establishment. Her company has seen over 15,000 clients and continues to grow. Diane is an NCBTMB provider and has written two books about massage.

Diane Matkowski, aka The Massage Mentor, has not worked for another business since 1996 and has prospered in the massage industry full-time. She has been on the frontlines of our industry, creating jobs for massage therapists since 2002. Also, an exceptional experience for clients. Her mentoring and teaching is not a bundle of hypothetical ways to help massage therapists grow, yet were created through her experiences doing it first hand. She has been actively mentoring massage therapists since 2002 and helping them navigate through all aspects of the industry.

Diane, aka The Massage Mentor, started interviewing massage and bodywork teachers on her Facebook page for massage therapists in 2019. What she found was that there are amazing people all over doing incredible things. There are too many great things for one massage therapist to even try in one lifetime. However, Diane wants to help you try to find as many wonderful experiences as possible.

The Massage Mentor Institute is where students have easy access to online classes from unique and leading providers. Also, to find courses that will help them learn more about self-care for massage therapists and more. The goal is to have an inclusive space for massage students, teachers, and providers to strengthen their practice's and our industry.

The Mentor shared her idea with Rebel Massage, and her response was, "sign me up." The Mentor shared the vision with other teachers. They said, "sign me up," and the rest is history.
