Carolien - Belgium
At age 18 I had a breast-reduction. At the time I felt the operation was great as I felt relieved that I would not attract unwanted attention anymore, which had been quite an issue before. I also felt more free in my movements especially when engaging in sports.
But since then there were also regular pains in my arms and the days before my period the lymphatic areas on the outer sides of my breasts would swell and be very tender if not really painful. I had hard and sensitive scars that felt uncomfortable when touched. And even though my breasts were not very sensitive before my operation, after the operation they became quite numb.
At first I was ok with the size of my breasts but quite soon after I gained and then lost weight leaving my breasts feeling and looking like what I used to call teabags making me feel unattractive and less feminine.
Enter the EBM sessions. As soon as I heard about them I realized how important they would be. And they were, they have changed my life, my relationship with myself as a woman and more specifically my relationship with my breasts. Having regular EBMs for a period of time I discovered just how much my breasts were communicating with me about the way I lived and how many emotions and beliefs I held in this area of my body.
The sessions supported me immensely in clearing the issues I was holding onto, and to build a relationship with my breasts and with myself as a woman. What has followed is nothing short of amazing. I never have painful or swollen breasts anymore, my breast are beautifully sensitive and I have great awareness of them. They are fuller and more firm and I love them and care for them. Even my periods have become regular and less painful. I have found this modality to be very powerful and it has offered me immense support in my personal healing.
