Breast Massage by Debra Curties
Most massage therapists in practice today readily acknowledge that if they received any breast massage education at all when they were in training, they did not receive enough.
Breast health care is vitally important to women, yet most do not know how to find practitioners who will support their breast tissue health. Massage therapists can provide effective treatment of a number of the breast complaints that women have, including post-surgical and scar work, easing of discomforts of pregnancy and breastfeeding, treatment of congestion and edema, and alleviation of many of the causes of breast pain. Massage therapists can also play a role in supporting our clients’ regular breast monitoring practices.
While most massage practitioners believe in the therapeutic value of breast massage, most do not have confidence in their skills in relation to this sensitive area of treatment. This groundbreaking book provides the knowledge and understanding that massage therapists need to be able to offer breast massage when appropriate, as part of the fundamental set of health care services we provide for those who choose massage therapy.
