Breast Massage Technique

1 Open up the area where the lymphatic system terminates and rejoins the blood system. This is located in the hollow spaces behind your collar bones. With two hands, using the finger pads and crossing the wrists to make this easier, stretch the skin from the outside towards the center of your neck. Repeat 15 times.

2 Open left armpit and put your left hand on head (during post- surgery healing do not raise the arm above shoulder height). Using the right hand, place a flat hand over the center of your armpit keeping your hand in one place, stretch the skin upwards in a circular fashion. Repeat 15 times. Switch sides

3 Massage on left breast. Stroke lightly, stretch the skin, “like petting a cat.” Move the top hand across the top of the breast toward the armpit, simultaneously moving the bottom hand across the bottom of the breast in the opposite direction, then reverse. Repeat 10 times and end with a final stroke upwards into the armpit. Switch sides
