Lymphatic Breast Care Massage

Strictly speacking, lymphatic breast care massage is not a seperate modality from manual lymph dranage. However, there are some points to bear in mind.

The lymphatics of the breasts are very different to any other part of the body, in that they don't have any muscles acting on them to cause a pumping action. This, together with the lymphatics being squashed flat by a bra all day, causes the system to stop working.

Studies in Canada, have shown that regular lymphatic massage of the breasts can reduce the risk of breast cancer by as much as 80%. The same studies have also shown that for women who wear a bra for more than 8 hours a day are also at increased risk for developing breast cancer. In fact, this risk increases by about 10% for every hour a day average extra that a bra is worn.

The lymphatic breast care massage is usually a self massage that is done about 2 to 3 times a week. This is not the same as the breast inspection that women should do, to inspect their breasts for lumps (cancer detection).

The breast care massage can be included in any of the other full body massage routines if so desired.
