Breast Massage

Something to think about...

 

Whoa...…!  Why?

People view breasts in various ways. Popular culture and society can apply positve or negative references with regards to womens breasts. Sexuality and our emotional experience with sex also define breasts personally, as well as cancer, masectomies, size, shape, age....

All this overlooks the fact that breasts are body tissues with specific health needs.

Breasts are often compressed within tight clothing. This inhibits blood and lymph flow. Breasts lack muscle tissue which also stagnates tissue through lack of movement

Massage therapy is a gentle and effective way to promote breast health and relieve symptoms of discomfort and ambivalence.

Breasts are never fully exposed during treatment.
