Jacqueline - England
I had my first Esoteric Breast Massage in May 2011. Five or so minutes into the massage, the EBM Practitioner asked me how it felt. The truth was that I felt nothing, absolutely nothing, but out of politeness I heard myself saying, it feels very nice.
After a few more moments, she stopped the breast massage and instead did some work on my back. She knew that I had felt nothing even though I didn’t tell her. She knew that the EBM was not what I needed at that time and for some time to come. She also had felt the lump that I had in my breast and recommended I go to the doctors and have my breasts checked. I had resistance and much fear but decided to go.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2011 and commenced treatment (5 months chemo, operation and radiation) in September 2011. Fast forward to June 2013. Only then did I have my first full breast massage, after having the all clear from the doctors to do so.
