Breast Massage – The Spurgeon Method™
As a massage therapist, you are in the unique position of being able to help your clients with breast issues.
Lymphatic fluid, which is vital for healthy tissue, is most effectively moved through the breasts by manual manipulation and in many parts of the world Breast Massage is included in a regular routine to maintain healthy breast tissue.
In the US, current statistics show that 1 in 8 women under the age of 60, and 1 in 4 over 60, are being diagnosed with breast cancer. As a massage therapist, you will undoubtedly have someone on your table in the near future who has had some type of breast surgery. Having the knowledge to address their (and perhaps your own) fears, concerns about treatment, and being able to confidently treat those clients is imperative for any therapist working with this population today.
More and more women are discovering the importance of breast massage to promote and maintain healthy breast tissue and it is now accepted as a form of preventive or remedial treatment for many common breast issues. The Spurgeon Method™ – a massage and bodywork technique for the upper torso, including the breast – is offered at the renowned Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California and is one of the services to be offered at the new Vincere Cancer Center in Scottsdale, Arizona. It is available from trained therapists nationwide.
