Breast Massage therapy is an effective ‘wellness’ treatment for breasts, as the breasts need excellent circulation and tissue mobilization for optimum health.
Poor circulation in the breasts can produce uncomfortable symptoms. In addition, breast scarring (surgically and traumatically induced), which is more common than we often realize, can cause painful syndromes and obstruct blood and lymph flow.
Some believe there may be a correlation between chronic poor breast drainage and susceptibility to malignancy. For women who are seeking a method to improve circulation and lymphatic drainage in order to reduce inflamed and sensitive breasts, massage therapy techniques from a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) may turn out to be one of the most effective modalities for addressing such problems and promoting breast health.
Why might a woman seek therapeutic breast massage?
Women often seek breast massage therapy for pain or tenderness (chronic or cyclical) or for treatment of a number of medical conditions. Others are interested in pro-active preventative breast health care.
Breast massage therapy is beneficial for many women during pregnancy, lactating, and weaning. Massage plays a critical role in the care of breast implants and post-surgical care. Some women want to become more comfortable with their own breasts or having their breasts touched. Safe, nurturing touch can be a healing experience.
