Do you have painful breasts a few days before your menstrual period?

Do your breasts feel sore, tender, and swollen before your period?

Have you experienced your breasts being too painful to wear a bra?

It is common for us to experience recurring breast tenderness at one time or another associated with our period, which usually goes away when the period starts. You may be experiencing breast pain throughout the month with symptoms in one area of the breast. If you have fibrocystic breasts (which are naturally lumpier and bumpier from fibrous tissue) you may experience breast tenderness, too. This can come from hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, large breasts, hormonal replacement therapy, medications such as antidepressants, mastitis, cysts and very rarely, caused by breast cancer.

Having sore, tender and swollen breasts is not a normal part of being a female. Your breasts are telling you something is going on with your health, such as an issue with your endocrine glands, hormones are off, or your lymphatic system is sluggish.

Do You Massage Your Breasts?

Breast massage is a great way to help address your breast symptoms. Massaging your breasts brings blood flow and moves out toxins and hormones, along with promoting lymphatic drainage. In doing breast massage painful and engorged breast relieved by balancing out your hormones. In fact, you do not have to have any breast symptoms to use the ancient technique of massaging your breasts daily. In my experience, I have seen breast massage to effective.

Benefits of Breast Massage

  • P.M.S. Symptoms will go away—swollen breasts, irritability, mood swings, etc.
  • Menstrual Period becomes regular—with normal bleeding and 27—29-day cycle.
  • Maintains healthy vaginal moisture.
  • Hormones distribute throughout the body properly.
  • Balances hormones that are imbalanced after discontinuing birth control pills or after hysterectomy.
  • Easier transition into menopause.
  • Estrogen users still benefit from the massage and may even be able to discontinue estrogen therapy.
  • Reduces chances of breast cancer.
  • Lump will shrink if present. If breast is too painful to massage or touch, only massage opposite breast. This will stimulate hormones and blood flow to both breasts.

 

**Do not use breast massage if you are pregnant as this may induce early labor or miscarriage

How to Massage Your Breasts

  1. Massage each breast in a clockwise, circular motion, hand covering entire breast. Starting on one side, cup breast in your hand doing 20 circles, and working up to 36 over the next few weeks. Repeat massage, working in a counter clockwise manner with same breast.
  2. Repeat the procedure with your other breast or do both breasts simultaneously. 
  3. After massaging your breast, cup the breast and breathe in and out, visualizing healthy breasts.
  4. Breast massage ideally should be done once or twice daily. Work into a daily routine, massaging during morning in bed, during a shower or bath and again at bedtime. Make sure to lubricate with an oil such as olive oil, or even aloe vera gel.

 

I prefer to massage both my breasts simultaneously in the shower after washing. I do not recommend using soap as a lubricant when massaging.

Take the time to nourish your breasts daily and start reaping the benefits. It is an important part of nurturing your body and overall health.
