Registered Massage Therapy for Breast & Chest Surgery Rehabilitation

In the South Okanagan

Yes, breast massage is "a thing"! 

Some of my patients call me up asking if breast massage is even a thing that's possible.  I can assure you, not only is it possible, it can make a truly significant difference to your comfort and rehabilitation from breast surgery. 

It is a strictly non-sexual, 100% therapeutic service to improve range of motion, scar tissue, altered body image and quality of life.

  • Breast cancer related surgeries,
  • Elective or cosmetic breast surgeries,

Some reasons people seek massage therapy for breasts and chests:

 

Pre-surgery preparation:

  • "Loosening" chest muscles to accommodate implants or expanders more easily
  • Improving circulation so sluggish blood can flow more effectively, nourishing all the tissues it touches
  • Clearing debris from your lymph nodes through improving lymphatic flow
  • Preparing your body/mind to receive the surgery, so you are an active empowered participant
  • Answering questions about the different types of surgery you can choose from, and pros/cons of each so you can make an informed decision

 

Post-surgical Side Effects:

  • Reducing and eliminating common side effects such as pain, bruising, swelling, numbness, tightness and restricted range of motion
  • Helping your new expanders to sit more comfortably, so they don't feel like "raw potatoes" painfully clamped to your chest
  • Softening, stretching and mobilizing stubborn scar tissue so it returns to skin tone more quickly and does not impede your movement or appearance
  • Restore confidence you can move and "do life" without tearing your surgical sites
  • Help your new body feel like yours, rather than having a stranger sitting in your body

 

Post-surgical Complications:

  • Softening and mobilizing capsular contracture, so your breasts sit more symmetrically on your chest and are able to move up and down, rather than feeling completely stuck, rigid and painful
  • Reduce and eliminate chording (axillary web syndrome) in underarm, arm, breast, abdomen
  • Overcome "Iron Bra" and Post-mastectomy Pain Syndrome (PMPS) so you no longer feel like you have a metal band wrapped around your torso or are in chronic pain
  • Lymphedema prevention techniques so you can reduce lymphatic congestion and fluid build-up in arms, hands, chest, neck, abdomen, legs

 

Long-term Maintenance:

  • Improve postural adaptations like an inwardly curved chest and hunched shoulders
  • Chronic headaches from stress, nerve pain, tension and postural compensations
  • Movement restrictions in arms, shoulders, neck, chest, back and trunk

 

Healthy Breast Massage:

  • Practicing preventative care so your breast health stays in optimal condition
  • Menstrual cycle discomfort can be greatly reduced by clearing sluggish circulation and reducing inflammation
  • Mastitis or blocked milk ducts during the breastfeeding years
