Massage is vital to the health and well-being of breast tissue. Lymphatic fluid which keeps our tissue healthy is moved through the body in three ways: respiration, muscle movement and manual manipulation. As there is no muscle in the breast itself, and only tiny muscles in the lymphatic vessels, the fluid is most efficiently moved with manual manipulation. This massage alleviates congestion, pain, and swelling in breast tissue and increases range of motion in the shoulders, neck and upper torso. Instructions are given for home care to promote healthy breast tissue.

Using a combination of lymphatic drainage, bodywork, and proprietary massage techniques, our method works to relieve pain, reduce swelling and ease breathing.

The Spurgeon Method® is utilized in each of our breast sessions. Developed by our Founder, Sally Spurgeon, the technique is endorsed by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork. Currently available from therapists in the USA, UK and South Africa, the goal is to make this treatment available to post-mastectomy patients world-wide.
Her professional perspective as a massage and bodywork therapist, and her personal battle with breast cancer, inspired Sally to create this groundbreaking hands-on approach to recovery that combines massage, bodywork and lymphatic drainage techniques to aid in healing — both physically and mentally.
At Thérapie, breast cancer has touched all our lives and it is our mission to ensure that women everywhere understand the importance of massage for breast health and for post-surgical recovery.
