Jane - England
I am a woman who has had a number of women’s health issues, including 30 of years of endometriosis, abnormal cells in the cervix when I was 21 that required laser treatment, and a bout of severe mastitis that required a visit to a specialist breast clinic. I am currently in peri-menopause.
Around 6 years ago I was introduced the Esoteric Breast Massage…One thing that changed was going to the GP for my pap smear or breast checks, or breast screening (the EBM Practitioners encourage this as they make it clear that they do not diagnose health conditions) and feeling how supportive this was. In the past I had literally dragged myself to the GP or local clinic for these, but now with the encouragement of the EBM Practitioner I could feel that having these regular check ups were not only deeply self caring, they were an essential part of daily living, to the extent that my GP is deeply supportive, and recently I had a number of blood tests which were actually the best I have ever had, in that even the slight anaemia I had had on and off for years had rebalanced, and I now feel I can also talk with my GP about anything. This enabled me to feel how much the EBMs work hand in hand with mainstream medicine.
