Breast tissue health is strongly tied to circulation and drainage. Breast massage mobilizes breast tissue and promotes blood and lymph circulation. Massage can help relieve pain, congestion, and edema (swelling).

Boomerang RMT, Krisha Arbour, will be teaching you gentle, effective self-massage strategies to add a wonderful layer of self-care to your life.

Alison will be presenting movements and stretches to target chest and shoulder muscles that affect circulation and function in the area of your breast tissue. No, you can’t “exercise” your breasts, but you can exercise all the areas around them and make a difference… because it’s all connected!

I loved this workshop. No nakedness required. It was wonderfully comfortable to explore the various tissues, muscles and lymphatic connections that support our chest and breasts. As you would expect (if you have ever taken a class with Alison) “it is all connected” Yeaaah! –  our shoulders, upper backs and, well you know, the rest of our bodies. The lymphatic self massage technique was a revelation. It is very very gentle. There was a great combination of learning about the anatomy (how it is all connected) and exercises. I left the workshop with a greater appreciation for my breasts and felt really – I don’t know lighter and more open. An amazing workshop.” ~Nancy M.
