The Enlightened Breast Self-Exam

posted by chattering mind

Every woman’s doctor is trained to kindly ask, “Are you performing your monthly breast exams?” And most women answer: “Ah, yes, well mostly…that is, when I remember.”

Yesterday, as I was perusing breast cancer books at a local bookstore, I found a whole new concept.

Here it is: Women should massage their breasts every day–in the tub or shower, before sleep, any time they can manage it.

With one woman in eight still getting breast cancer, daily breast massage makes great sense.

Women sometimes tend to think of their breasts as other people’s property…their infant’s or their partner’s. But if women were to touch, caress, massage their own breasts daily, they would better acquaint themselves with the feel of the soft tissue and glands. They would become better judges of any changes or irregularities. Some authors also indicate that daily breast massage can help to keep the breast healthy, free of actual and energetic blockages. (Any new lump that seems suspicious should be checked out immediately, of course, and not massaged at all.) Here’s a web link to a massage therapy site that indicates that breast massage could perhaps become the next domain of the professional massage therapist–with client consent. Very interesting…

CM's Final Posts: You Can Fill the Space
Eighteen years ago, I wrote an article for a magazine that got me called in for a taped interview with a Fox TV morning news anchor. Being an effective communicator and a skillful public speaker was a dream of mine at the time. And still is. After some 30 minutes of prep with the station's hair-and-

Websites to Visit, Blogs to Read
Here are some blogs and websites I like. It's not a complete list. But it's a start. The first is called New Moon Journal and it is written by Michele Bailey-Lessirard, a life coach, collage artist, and "shamanic astrologer." On the opening page of her site, you'll find a little slide show of her am
