Madeleine - England
I was 19 years old, when I made the choice to book myself in for my first Esoteric Breast Massage. I had learnt about this modality through my Mother, who had shared with me her own amazing experience with the EBM and who I had watched transform her life over the years after receiving support from treatments such as this and other therapies brought through by Universal Medicine. Throughout my teen years I too made regular visits to an Esoteric practitioner for sessions which I found to be of great support as I faced the 'regular challenges' of adolescence. I did not hold a great understanding of what this particular modality offered, but I could see and feel it's benefits through the living proof of my mother and what was clear was the strong pull to explore it, as though making an appointment was somewhat like a right of passage for me in my journey into womanhood. It is an honour to share my experiences with this modality; from the very first, which opened the doors for me to feel the essence of who I truly am, to the many EBM’s that have followed, each supporting me further to deepen the relationship I have with myself, so I can live that which I have felt within.
Having developed breasts at the age of 9, there has always been a great deal of focus around this part of my body, both from myself and from others. This in turn left me somewhat detached from my breasts and at times wishing they were detached from me. They were merely there; sometimes in the way, noticed by many, envied by some and even from a very young age, a lingering health concern as breast cancer was a common illness in my family - but surely there was more to my breasts than this.
As you can imagine, there was some anxiousness as I went along to my first EBM session. I could feel the experience was going to be intimate and I wasn’t sure that was something I was going to be all that comfortable with. However once being met so warmly by my practitioner, my nerves simmered and I became quickly at ease in her presence. It became clear that all of this dis-ease and discomfort I had been experiencing within my body and about myself in life and in the build up to this moment was actually foreign and did not belong to me.
Something that deeply inspires me about all of the women I have met who practise the Esoteric Breast Massage, is their ever so loving way of being. Never have I experienced such true care and unwavering quality in every aspect, nor any form of imposition. This type of integrity is rare and something to be cherished and celebrated. It also feels like our birthright, which we too often dishonour, to be treated as such, and it has saddened me at times to feel that I have not always chosen to treat myself with the same level of Love and care, that I have always felt from my practitioners over the years whilst receiving EBM's. It is without a doubt that these women live with this quality well outside of the treatment room. Something that inspires me so.
Now at the age of 24, having been the receiver of numerous EBMs by various women practitioners, and with a future of choosing to have many more. I can say without question that this beautiful modality should be experienced by all women. That receiving one is both an offering and an opportunity to feel the pure delight of what it means to be a woman, if we allow ourselves to be open to feeling it so. What a gift the Esoteric Breast Massage is to the world.
