Breast Massage for Healthy Breasts {Portland, OREGON}

May 12 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm PDT

ncb certified trainer4 NCBTMB CE's

Most massage practitioners in the United States don't include breasts in their full body massage sessions, whereas in Europe it is standard of care during massage. Breasts are an amazing part of our body that can create and provide complete nourishment for a baby.  When breasts are restrained in underwire bras, women develop fibrous tissue and restricted lymphatic flow from constant compression.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • Learn A&P of breast tissue
  • Contraindications/Pathology
  • Normalize  touching breasts from a therapeutic standpoint
  • Explore ways of easily incorporating breast massage into your practice
  • Informed consent release forms
  • Sidelying and semi-reclining approaches

We will address common breast concerns:

  •    Lactation issues
  •    Clogged ducts
  •    Lymphatic flow
  •    Scar tissue from breast reduction or enhancement
  •    Self Breast Massage

 

NOTE: This class does NOT cover techniques for cancer, mastectomy or lymphectomy recovery.

In states where breast massage is not within the scope of practice, we can still discuss benefits and precautions and self-massage techniques that can be taught to clients, to support breast health.
