You do not need any expert to massage your breasts. Breasts can be effectively self-massaged by following the right instructions. Gentle hands-on techniques on breasts, either uncovered or lightly draped, will enhance circulation and drainage. Breast massage has been practiced for years as a means of stimulating healthy breast growth or natural breast enlargement and breast health. Research scientists state that in ancient Persia the massage therapy primarily focused on the breasts of females to promote circulation with the help of essential oils. Here is a detailed description on how to give the right breast massage and the need for it.
Why should you massage your breast regularly?
Breasts are one of the body tissues made up of blood vessels, milk ducts, fat glands, connective tissue, and complex lymphatic vessels. Each of them play an important role in achieving the desired breast health. The lymphatic system helps in removing viruses, toxins, debris, bacteria, cancer cells, and other unwanted material from the body. The lymph nodes are linked throughout the body and act as a major line of defence against the spread of diseases in the body. However, when lymphatic vessels and nodes become restricted due to tight inner wears or clothing, the body’s defence system begins to break down. This makes the body prone to many diseases, even Cancer.
Women who wear tight bras for more than 15 hours continuously in a day, have an increased risk of acquiring breast cancer. As the bra limits the flow of toxins that need to be released, resulting in the increased cancer rate. Any more than a gentle amount of pressure can flatten the lymphatic vessel and stop the toxic flow from the breast. Therefore, women irrespective of age should try to avoid wearing bras at night and should also massage their breast regularly as it keeps your breast healthy, firm and beautiful.
Breast massage has been used in beauty parlours and massage parlours, as a means of breast growth promotion and healthy lymphatic drainage. It is also practiced as a post-operative therapy for women who have undergone mastectomies and breast surgery as it helps in breaking down scar tissues and even healing tissue regeneration. Here is a step by step procedure to help you practice self-breast massage in the privacy of your home. Self-breast massage should be done at least twice a week. You can do it on bare skin or by using some vegetable oil to move more comfortably. However, stay away from mineral based or scented oils.
Starting from the nipple, push downwards with the three longer fingers of your hand. Make sure the movement is done with less pressure, that is not more than, what you would apply to your eyelid. Deep pressure can flatten the lymphatic vessel and stop the flow of toxins and fluids. For effective results make this stroke really slow. Remember, massage is not all about squeezing some muscle it is just putting the right pressure on the right area.
Next, gently massage the breast in a kneading motion, by lifting and pressing movements.
Carefully use your hands to slowly twist the breast in a clock-wise and anti-clockwise direction. Make sure not to put too much tension on the breast.
Finally, rest your palms on the breast in such a way that they don’t cover the areola and area facing downwards. Then move your palms downwards so that the fingers rub against the side surfaces of the breast. This should not be done on the nipple, as it may spoil its shape.
To make the breast firmer, practice the breast lift technique. In this procedure, the breasts are lifted skywards, while placing both hands on the breast, from the upper to the lower side. The breast is released when it is as full stretch. Repeat it at least 5 times on each breast.
Studies have shown that breast massage coupled with the proper herbal supplement can increase breast size without the negative side effects of breast enhancement pills.
