Breast massage is not the same as a breast examination women undergo to check for lumps. A breast massage has medical benefits but is not medicine by nature. It is when women undergo a massage, usually with essential oils, on their chest area which is performed by a professional.
Here are four benefits of breast massage
1. Can Help Prevent Cancer
Malignant cells can often form a knot in your breast leading to lumps. When external pressure is applied during the early stages of this knot formation, it can force the cells to go back to their original form. This can help reduce the risk of cancer.
2. Improves Lactation Experience
Breast massage greatly benefits lactation. It provides better blood circulation to the breasts and helps ease their sensitivity. Moreover, it can also increase the milk supply. By enabling the breast tissues to warm up and loosen, breast massage helps the milk flow.
3. Stress Relief.
A massage should be meditative, and especially a massage to such a sensitive area. “Remember to touch with love and compassion,” Berman says. “The intention in your hands will leave an impression on your nervous system and you want that to be positive healing energy.”
As long as you’re not approaching the massage with anxious or angry thoughts, it can be a great stress reliever.
4. Ease Sore Muscles
Massaging the twins can help ease chest, shoulder, and back pain. You don’t have to do physical fitness tests worth of pull-ups to overexert your chest muscles.
Tension gathering in your back can also strain your chest muscles. Massaging the pectoral muscles can help reduce tension in these areas and soothe the soreness.
A chest massage can also be more relaxing in the long run than just a back massage. A back massage won’t release all the tension in your chest, which can make the back tense up again.
