Breast Massage

Lymph Drainage is an important element to keep breasts healthy.  To help drain the lymph tissue of the breasts try this self massage at least once a month:

1. Stroke neck, moving skin back and down towards the collarbone (15 times, each side).
2. Gently pump armpit with palm underarm (15 times each side)
3. Using 4 fingers, make small circles around the outside of each breast, working inwardly to the nipple
4. Lean forward and cup each breast in your hands and grently pull the breast away from the chest wall while moving the breast around in a circular movement

If you find a lump do not put pressure on it or massage it but please consult with your health care professional.
