Do you know that the only way to move lymphatic fluid through your breasts to keep the tissue healthy is by manual manipulation?
In many parts of the world, Breast Massage is included in a regular routine to maintain healthy breast tissue. In the US and also the UK, current statistics show that 1 in 8 women under the age of 60, and 1 in 4 over 60, are being diagnosed with breast cancer. More and more women are discovering the importance of breast massage to promote and maintain healthy breast tissue. It is now accepted as a form of preventive or remedial treatment for many common breast issues.
