When is the last time that you gifted yourself a breast massage?
Similar to the *Yoni, breasts can carry immense amounts of shame. This is commonly rooted in how heavily womxn’s bodies - especially breasts if you have them - are sexualized. Shame has been passed down from generation to generation and often becomes so natural that many hardly notice it.
Take a deep breath and muse.
How often have you crossed your arms out of fear that your breasts are simply doing too much?
How many padded bras or pastie purchases have you made because someone told you that erect nipples are offensive, inviting, or too sexy?
What were you taught about your breasts? Is this true?
Although two crucial benefits of breast massages are early detection and flushing toxins through the lymphatic system - breast massages also assist in the flow of *prana, releasing emotional/sensual limitations, self-reclamation, and cultivating a shame-free relationship with your body.
Here are a few tips on how to gift yourself a breast massage :

Grab your favorite body/massage oil.
A few of my favorite oils Inspired by Ayurvedic Medicine here are a few of my favorite oils :
Sesame ( nourishing )
Frankincense ( heart-opening & grounding )
Rosemary ( healing )
Chamomile ( calming )
Take this ritual to the next level by warming up the oil. ;)
Stand or sit in front of your mirror.
Begin by cupping ( underneath ) your breast with one hand while you massage with the other hand.
Work in gentle but firm strokes. Inhale positive affirmations as you massage loving intentions into your breasts.
Now, make your thumb and middle fingers into a V shape and press from the outer breast to the nipple, ensuring to massage the entire breast.
Lift your arm toward the ceiling and and take the opposite hand to the outer chest where it connects to the arm. Massage the lymphatic area of the upper chest and inner armpit with gentle, intentional, and loving strokes.
Journal, muse, and meditate.
Pull out your journal and take note of how you felt before, during, and after your massage.
Was there any resistance? What feelings came up for you, if any?
