Breast Massage – The Spurgeon Method™
These days, many women who come to us have, or have had, some kind of breast issue. Whether it is concerns with an issue post-surgery, or questions about changes and discomfort that happen as they age, as a massage therapist you are in the unique position of being able to help them.
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. Having the knowledge to address clients’ (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.
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.
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 in many parts of the country.
The class we teach is based on the book Breast Massage by Debra Curties, RMT. It helps participants to become comfortable with the idea of giving and receiving Breast Massage. It explains its benefits, and helps you understand how vitally important it is for everyone.
After taking the class, participants will be able to identify the following:
The composition of breast tissue and its boundaries
The changes of the tissue in pre and post menopausal stages
The changes of the tissue during the lactation process
The lymphatic ducts and the drainage pathways important to breast tissue
Signs and symptoms of issues that can arise in the breasts
The musculoskeletal referral patterns of breast pain
Indications and contraindications for breast massage
The class will also cover the legal issue of breast massage.
After taking this class you will feel confident in performing breast massage on your self, your clients, and in addressing various breast concerns people may have.
Our second class focuses on types of massage for post-surgical issues and explains about complications that may occur following breast cancer treatments.
