therapeutic breast massage

Therapeutic Breast Massage is a gentle treatment to alleviate the discomfort of normal hormonal fluctuations and the after-effects of surgery. Many women experience breast discomfort associated with menstruation, pregnancy, lactation, or menopause. A few minutes of massage to the breast area during your regular massage therapy appointment can help relieve congestion and ease pain.

For women who have undergone surgery (such as a lumpectomy or mastectomy, breast reduction or augmentation, reconstructive surgery, or lymph node removal), massage can help release adhesions and scar tissue, regain movement at the shoulder, reduce lymphedema, and soften axillary cording (tight “cords” down arm).

Just as important, massage therapy can offer some much-needed nurturing care during what otherwise may be a cold, clinical experience, and help women reconnect with their changing body.
