Why Breast Massage?
Massaging the breast is becoming very popular among the Western countries as a method to improve the bust line. Asian women have been massaging their breasts for centuries now, and know the advantages of such a process over the synthetic methods and surgeries being used today. Breast massage is actually very simple, and can be done within the privacy of one’s home without anyone else coming to know about it. Moreover, it takes only a few minutes per day.
The breast is composed of tissue and adipose fat. Massaging helps to tone these layers and hence provide firmness to the breast. This leads to enlargement and enhancement of the shape of the breasts. Some women have problems with their breasts like inverted nipples or sagging, which can be dealt with using the proper massaging techniques. Breast massage will increase the tone and the size of the bust, thus building self-confidence in the user.
Over time, toxins may build up within the breasts (especially in lactating mothers). These toxic wastes can be channeled away through massage. Some lactating women suffer from engorged breasts in which the milk does not find a way out of the nipple. Either that, or the woman does not get time to breast-feed the baby. Such an accumulation of milk in the breast is dangerous as it may convert into poisonous wastes and they may show a painful swelling. Massage helps in disgorging them.
Today, massaging them is also seen as a diagnostic and prophylactic cure for breast cancer. Though there is no concrete evidence about the results of breast massage on breast cancer, there have been favorable indications.
How to Massage the Breasts?
A suitable breast enhancement cream must be applied to them before beginning with the massage. This helps to keep the breasts supple and pliable when pressure is applied to them. You can use an herbal breast cream, which has botanical stimulants to bring about breast enhancement.
Breast massage is a very simple four-step procedure which can very easily be done at home. The following are the four steps that are to be implemented:-
(i) Starting from the nipple, push downwards with the three longer fingers of your hand. The movement should be slow and almost graceful for better results. Be sure not to apply heavy pressure. The right trick is to maintain a moderate touch, but a prolonged contact.
(ii) Once the above step is done, then the breast should be lightly massaged with a kneading kind of action. Hold one breast with both your hands so as to cup out the breast. Do not apply heavy pressure; stop if it begins to hurt. Holding your breast in this manner, go on kneading it slightly for a while. Finish with one breast, and then take on the other.
(iii) The third step is most important to give a round firmness to the breasts. Hold your breast just as you had done in the earlier step. But instead of squeezing it out, give it a twirling kind of motion. Rotate your hands (and thus the breast) in a clockwise motion, followed by an equal anticlockwise motion. Continue this for about ten times. Then repeat with the other breast.
(iv) Finally, open out your palms on the breast such that they don’t cover the areola and are 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. Continue this for about ten times per breast.
Professional Breast Lift Technique
Professional breast masseurs use a popular technique called as the breast lift. Placing both hands on a breast (from the upper and lower side), the breast is gently pulled skywards, assuming that the person is in a lying position. When the breast is at full stretch, it is released. This is done for a certain number of times. Breast lift has an advantage of increasing the elasticity of the breast and draining away the accumulated toxins. Breast masseurs also lay emphasis on the kneading of the pectoral muscles (which are located below the collar bone). Strong pectoral muscles mean suppler breasts.
Precautions white Breast Massage
Though breast massage is a very simple technique and can be practiced by the woman herself, it must be done with utmost care. Wrong handling of the breasts may lead to breaking of the glandular tissues that hold the breast upright. This will cause undue sagging of the breast. Hence, wrong breast massage techniques may actually backfire. If there is doubt in the manner of implementing breast massage, you must visit a massage therapist or practitioner at least for the first time to get the proper hang of things.
Breast massage done by an outside person (such as a practitioner or a massage therapist) is bound by several rules by the legislation. Since the breasts are an erogenous part of the body, there could be overstepping of the limits of modesty. Hence, caution is necessary. It is better to be cognizant with the rules and regulations of your area concerning breast massages from professionals beforehand. You may also opt for a breast massage while staying draped.
