Lymphatic Massage for Your Breast
Breast tissue is unique in that it contains no muscles. Full of mammary glands, breasts are comprised of glandular organs which are surrounded by fatty, glandular and fibrous tissue.
The lymph nodes in your breasts are what help circulate nutrients and detoxify toxins throughout breast tissue, the armpits and the chest area. The majority of the breast lymph drains into the armpit nodes.
Breast tissue actually extends up into the armpit, just below the collar bone, and right down to your sixth or seventh rib.
Your breasts are incredibly sensitive to hormonal changes and undergo cyclic changes that mirror what’s happening in your uterus. Ever find that your breasts are tender at a certain point in your menstrual cycle? This would be why!
Regular breast lymphatic drainage can lift your breasts, improving circulation and reducing swelling, especially during PMS, pregnancy, and postpartum. And that’s not all. Lymphatic drainage massage in the breasts:
- Supports healthy lymph flow
- Can help shrink growths
- Increases breast tissue nutrition and oxygenation
- Boosts blood circulation
- Promotes relaxation
- Balances heart and sexual energy
- Detoxifies toxins and excess estrogen
- Enhances the elasticity of the ligaments
Your breasts are a direct funnel to your heart chakra, allowing daily massage to clear out stagnant energy and become a tool for alleviating feelings of emotional pain, stress, and unworthiness.
It’s a practice that can have you connect deeper to yourself, finding and building upon your self-love.
